Beat-the-Heat Summer Hairstyles
Summer-proof your hairstyles when humidity strikes with these expert tricks
Big hair, don't careIf you've got natural curls, fighting frizz is a daily battle when humidity starts to soar. This style helps you embrace the frizz (and win the war!) without looking like a hot mess. Here's how to get Gwen Stefani's look:
Step 1: Start by applying volumizing mousse to damp hair, and let it dry naturally.
Step 2: To get small, spiral curls, wrap your hair in 1/2-inch sections around a 1/2-inch curling iron. Only curl from the mid-section to the ends, leaving the crown straight.
Step 3: Use a teasing comb to backcomb your curls from the bottom layer up. Lift up each layer and mist your curls with strong-hold hairspray. Try Pantene Pro-V Curly Hair Series Satin Hold Hairspray, $4.99.
Step 4: With a flat brush, smooth down hair around the crown of your head and secure with bobby pins. Apply a shine serum on top to taper any flyaways.
Step 5: Finally, take a 1-inch section at the front side part and twist backwards, pinning it back with a bobby pin.
