Summer’s here and it’s time for all of us fashionistas to go out more and wear less. However, while you pay too much attention to your summer OOTD and OOTN, don’t forget to pay heed to your hairstyles. The summer season tends to affect all hair types differently, with certain hair feeling more voluminous and shiny, and other hair types suffering from frizzy and dull hair. However, there is nothing that a good conditioner and tape in extensions cannot fix!
Given below are three summer hairstyles involving hair extensions that you need to try right away:
Mermaid waves are the easiest day-to-night hairstyles that you can make with hair extensions that will go with both your daytime and nighttime looks. To create seamless mermaid waves, place your tape in hair extensions like you normally would and use a curl hold spray in your hair. Rather than letting the spray dry off naturally, you would use a paddle brush and a blowdryer to dry the product in place. You would then separate your hair from the crown and create sections. You would then take a small horizontal piece of your hair with your curler facing downwards and twist wrap each section for about 8-10 seconds. Once done, you would catch the curl in the palm of your hand until it cools down, and then pull to create a wave. You would repeat this with all the remaining sections and then finish off with a shine spray.
A Top Messy Bun
Messy buns are a great summer hairstyle that goes with both your casual daytime looks and dressy evening wear. To start, you would need to figure out exactly where you would like the bun to be on the top of your head. Once you find that spot, tread back 3 inches on your scalp and grab a small section of hair to create a small ponytail which would act as a reference point for the bun. You would then go on to adding in your tape in extensions all around the said ponytail and make sure that you brush all of them prior. You would then use a rat tail comb to tease your bangs and add a bit of volume. This step would be followed by holding your bun into place and securing it with hair ties, and a whiff of hairspray at the end.
Ariana Grande’s signature high ponytail has been doing rounds for a few years but has recently gained heightened popularity due to many celebs sporting one at this year’s Met Gala. To achieve that unstaggering high ponytail, you would first need to brush out all of your hair and your hair extensions. This would be followed by playing your largest extensions in your hair followed by the smallest length. However, while you would normally place them downwards, you’d place them in the opposite direction since all of it will be going into your ponytail. Once all extensions are in place, use a paddle brush to bring your hair into a ponytail, and use some wax and bobby pins to secure all hair in place.
The three given summer hairstyles will be an excellent addition to your summer looks, and all three of them are versatile and unique in their way. Mermaid waves, a messy bun, and a high ponytail are the only three hairstyles that you need to master using tape in extensions that are likely to help you serve a ton of looks.
