Now that the summer party season is in full swing, Asgar Saboo, Celebrity Hairstylist and Style Director at the Daniel Galvin salon (UK) has put together his favorite 5-minute summer hair fixes that are perfect to whip your hair up and go — no hairdryers; no straighteners; and best of all, no fuss.
5 Easy & Quick Summer Hair Styles
The Braided Top Bun: This sophisticated up-do is a lovely variation of the ballerina bun. It’s quick to summer hair look and always appears pulled-together. Start by creating a high ponytail and place a hair doughnut at the base of the ponytail to give the bun a nice shape. Cover the bun with your hair and secure it with a hair elastic, leaving the hair hanging around the bun. Divide the extra hair in two sections and braid each one of them. Finish by carefully wrapping the braids around the bun and secure with bobby pins.
The Bubble Ponytail: This summer hairstyle is ideal for a post-beach makeover, says Asgar. Apply a smoothing balm to your tresses and gather your hair in a high ponytail. Tease the ponytail and apply a texturizing spray for a voluminous look. Take clear elastic bands and place them along the ponytail in equidistant intervals. Finish with a light-hold hair spray to keep it in place.
The Messy Side Braid: This bohemian-chic hairdo is ideal for a summer pool party and the perfect accessory for a casual romper. French braid the back strands of your hair from back to side and create a side pony tail, explains Asgar. Using a paddle brush, tease the ponytail to add volume. Braid the teased hair into a regular braid and pull it to the side to create that casual, messy texture.
The Loose Bun and Headpiece: This is the perfect summer hairstyle to showcase a beautiful headpiece, says Asgar. The hairstyle is simple and understated, and can easily be done in less than five minutes. To create this look, pull your hair into a low, loose ponytail and secure it with an elastic band. Carefully twist the ponytail and wrap it around the base. Finish by securing it with bobby pins (that match the color of your hair).
The Front Side Braid: A playful feminine hairstyle, the front side braid is perfect for a summer evening out. Start by applying sea salt spray to get tousled, beach waves. Part your hair to the side and French braid the front section of your hair and pin it at the side, leaving the rest of your tresses loose. Use bobby pins to hold it in place.
