Choose hairstyles that are according to your hair type (fine, thick, straight or wavy) and suits your personality. There is a unique tone of modernism to the most iconic styles of the 20th century, infuse them with a modern twist and you will find most of the dominant hairstyles of 2011.
Here are some hairstyles for summer:
Braids are super easy and fun to do. Messy fishtail braid looks chic and cool. For a messy fishtail braid, spray your hair with a texturizing spray. Section your hair into two, right and left, start by taking a strand from left and cross it over to the middle of the right section. Now do the same for the right side by taking outside hair from either section and crossing it over to the middle of other section. Once the braid is done, secure it with an elastic band. Finally, use a light spray to hold the look. Don’t worry if the braid is loose because it gives you a modern look.
Wet & Natural
This is an imperfect look but works great for every day. When you are running late for work or anywhere else and have no time to blow dry each part of your hair, just scrunch your wet hair in a mousse. This creates cool messy-glossy strands, just like you are surfing.
The pixie cut is not a new hairstyle for the year. It is a very bold hairstyle that highlights the structure and features of the face. For its styling, use a cream or spray on dry or wet hair to give texture to the cut. For a sleek stylish look, do a side part. The pixie crop remains for those with either straight hair or thin hair. One of the most influenced celebrities with cropped style is Emma Watson.
Side Braided Bun
What could be cooler than the side braids with a bun? It is a great style to keep hair off your face and neatly in a bun. Also, the side braid creates a frame across the face. To get this look first loosely blow dry your hair then make two sections from the front. Take a one-inch section of hair from either side and crisscross underneath the back. Add hair to the section as you go down. Take two bobby pins to secure behind your hair. Repeat the same on the other side. Tie the remaining back hair into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
This classic summer look works well on all hair types and looks perfect for hot weather. If you have fine and straight hair then a high pony like this be perfect to create a sleek and silky high ponytail. After blow-drying, apply heat serum to your hair and flat iron hair into sections. Spray a shine spray on a hairbrush and gather hair into a ponytail, use a hair tie to secure the look.
There’s a new kick to waves this summer. Create modern waves by applying heat serum and mousse to wet hair and blow dry with a round brush. Curl the hair around the face with a one-inch curling iron. Take some hair smoothing cream and turn your head upside down to rub it into the hair, it also holds the waves and creates shine. Finally, finish the look with hairspray.
