As summer is in full swing, the need to have our hair looking perfect can be all consuming. From beach days and pool parties, to late night BBQs or simply running errands around town, we want our locks to look on point! But did you know there are a handful of heatless hairstyles that not only look great but also keep your hair healthier than if you used any kind of hot tool? In this blog post I am going to share with you 3 of my favorite heatless looks that will have your hair looking glossy and gorgeous without risking damage from the likes of curling irons and straightening tools.
The first look is a simple braid. Braids are the perfect way to take your hair from drab to fab in no time. For this look, start by sectioning the hair into two sections on either side of your head. Braid each section separately, then secure each braid with a hair tie. If you want to add a bit of texture and volume, pull the braids apart ever so slightly at the end. This look works great on a variety of hair types and lengths, plus it’s a great way to keep your hair off your face in hot, humid weather.
Another great heatless style is the half up/half down look. This style is perfect if you have longer hair, as it allows you to keep the length while still having a sophisticated look. All you have to do is gather the top half of your hair into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Then, take the ends of the ponytail and wrap them around the elastic to form a bun. If you want to add some extra style, gently tug out some pieces around the face for a softer look.
Finally, we have the classic bun. You don’t even need a hair tie for this look – all you have to do is pull your hair back into a low ponytail and twist it around itself until it forms a bun. Secure the look with bobby pins, and you’re good to go! This is a great style for days you’re just running around preparing for a move with blacktiemoving.com or running other errands and don’t need to be too dressed up, but still want a cute hairstyle without using heat.
