New month, new you, new hairdo! Pump up the volume on your daily hair routine with three styles to try out before fall. So brighten up, clip in, and give these ‘dos a twirl.
Blame it on World Cup star Megan Rappinoe — pastel streaks and colorfully-tipped manes are making a name for themselves. Try the trend out commitment-free with L’Oreal Colorista’s Semi Permanent Hair Dye ($11.99 at CVS) or Hair Makeup ($7.99 at Target), which comes in hues like aqua, pink, and Rappinoe-approved purple. The semi-permanent color fades in 4-8 shampoos and the hair makeup lasts for just one day so you can play with a new color all over again.
Pearl-studded barrettes, clips and headbands are adding an instant dose of “pulled togetherness” on even the toughest of bed head days. Head to H&M for hair accessories that won’t break the bank. You can snap a couple of clips stacked on one side of your head, mix and match an assortment of sizes all over, or toss on a knotted headband over your up-do (and no one will know your last blowout was days ago).
Beach waves are nothing new on the summer style circuit, but if you haven’t tried them yet, they’ll become your new low maintenance go-to-do. Head to Drybar Bethesda Row or North Bethesda) to get started and ask for the Mai Thai (or Dry Thai if you’re short on time). Be sure to pick up a bottle of the Triple Sec Finishing Spray ($26, also available at Bluemercury and Sephora) and Mai Thai Finishing Spray ($25 at the above) to keep your curls lasting through the week. If you’re already a pro, Ulta’s 1.25 in. Beachwaver Pro Iron ($199 at Ulta) will create the perfect just-left-vacation waves each time you style so you can be beachy from the comfort of your home.
