Sexy Summer Hairstyles and How to Get 'Em
Heat things up by copying these sizzling celebrity hairstyles
During the lazy days of summer your hairstyle should look sexy with minimal effort, but because we all know summer hasn't been lazy since high school, it is going to take a little bit of styling to prevent frizz and create hairstyles that keep you looking sexy day and night. Your best bet to beat the heat is to play up your natural hair texture with trendy hairstyles that work with your hair's natural texture.
To get the lowdown on the sexiest hairstyles for your hair this summer, we gabbed with celebrity hairstylist and International Creative Consultant for John Frieda, Harry Josh, who gave us all the details on what three celebrity hairstyles he finds sexiest and how you can perfect them just in time for the sun's favorite season.
See how Josh's A-list clientele (including Sarah Jessica Parker, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Beckinsale) look in these 'dos and get step-by-step instructions on how you can pull them off as well. But before you get all fired up with these hot hairstyles, it is important to know that the head and scalp absorb more UV rays than any other part of the body -- it's true! So to safe guard your hair from damage, Josh says to prep hair with a protective product before styling. Try one of these reader faves:
