Short Hair Cuts for Summer

57Short hair looks great on just about everyone, and shorter hair styles are more popular than ever.  For a fashion-forward look, try a side-swept long pixie cut, a punk-inspired undercut or a close crop. And the bob has been spotted everywhere… on runways from London to NYC, on Hollywood celebrities and on Main Street USA! Wear it slicked down and smooth, choppy and textured or add some gentle waves.Going with a short cut is also the time to experiment with color. Ask your stylist whether you should go with some face framing highlights or all over daring color. If you decide on a new hair color make sure you take precautions to keep your color from fading in the sun.

Medium-length Hair Ideas

99If you prefer wearing your hair longer, add interest to shoulder-length hair with long layers, a low side-part or bangs.  You’ll have the versatility to wear it straight or add some beachy waves.And a cute long-layered cut is great for experimenting with fun hair accessories. A little clip, a head band (something beaded or floral perhaps!) or even scarf can all be added to your hairstyle for a cool summer look.

Summer Hairstyles for Long Hair

7Long hair is one of the most versatile hair lengths but make sure you keep it looking healthy with regular trims and conditioning, especially if you use a flat iron.  A professional deep conditioning treatment is an inexpensive indulgence (like Redken Shot Phase treatment starting at just $25 at Gore) that revives long hair in a matter of 10 to 15 minutes. Treat yourself to one this summer. Your hair will love you for it!There are so many options for long hair this summer.  Wear it wavy one day, poker straight the next, skip a washing and opt for a low pony or messy bun, or try a trendy “messy braid” or fishtail.

Vibrant Hair Colors for Summer

12With warmer weather, we tend to see lighter hair colors and blond highlights to duplicate how the sun would naturally accent the hair.  If you decide to go blonder, ask your stylist for some tips to avoid over exposure, as too much direct sun can cause blond tresses to go brassy over time.

Summer Styles for Men

142Long, short, cropped, curly or shaven – we love them all.  Men’s hairstyles are more versatile than they have ever been, taking inspiration from throwbacks of the 1940’s and 50’s.
