The Top 5 Summer Looks

Summer is a great time to play with casual, low-maintenance looks that easily go from day to night. It’s so nice out, so you don’t want to spend too much of your day worrying about styling your look. Here are a few of our favorite looks of the season, for both men and women.

Number 1

Try some texture

Guys looking to try something new need not be afraid of a bit of texture. Last year’s looks were so slick and perfect, but this summer brings disheveled and effortless to your routine. Trade gel for texture clay, then twist and separate your undercut, short crop, or faux hawk.

Number 2

Stylize the lob

Ladies who are daring are getting the lob (long bob) with texture, which is created with a razor cut and finished up with sculpting mud. It’s one of the latest cool-girl looks, with the bonus of being super low-maintenance.

Number 3

Ride the waves

Complement your summer style with beachy waves. For flirty lobs or luxuriously long layers, pair your curling wand with some thermal protection spray. Take 1- to 2-inch sections of hair, spray, wrap, and twist around a wand. Allow hair to cool and shake out the curl.

Number 4

Grow that beard

There doesn't seem to be an end in sight of the beard trend, so why not give it a shot? They're still cool and look stylish when well maintained. Trim, wash, condition, and apply beard oil to keep your facial hair looking stellar all summer long.

Number 5

Go undercover

It's great to show off your healthy and nourished hair in the summer, but sometimes the best look is to not over expose it. Just like your skin, your hair needs to be protected from the sun. Don’t hesitate to pack a fun sun hat, fedora, or ball cap when hitting the pool, the game, or the beach. You’ll keep your scalp, hair, and highlights looking magnificent all summer long if you keep sun exposure to a minimum.
