5 Five-minute Summer Styles - Part 3 {Let That Hair Down!}

These last super easy summer styles are for my girls who are in the mood to enjoy that hair. They are very simple and allow you to add character to your hair rather than just rock your hair out and down. Let's take a look at the 5 easy ways whereby you can spruce up your do, while wearing your...
Hair Down

 This is super simple and involves you making a center part and adding a head-chain, allowing it to sit atop your head in the center part. Perfect for a day at the beach or strolling the boardwalk.

This 1/2 up - 1/2 down style includes sectioning your hair from ear to ear, making a poof at the top and securing with a bobbypin while the back section is combed backwards or in front of the shoulders.

For this rocker look, you make a horseshoe part and take all the hair to one side of your head. Let the hair sweep across your forehead to create faux bangs. Secure with bobbypins. My bobbypins became an accessory by making a simple X with the pins.

Again this everyday style is really simple. Create a center part, going 2 or 3 inches inward. Make two 1" squared sections on either side of the part. Take those small sections along your hairline, to the back of your head, secure.

Now this one is for my girls who don't want to let it all hang out. Simply gather hair into a ponyclip and let your hair do what it do!

Admittedly, this may take more than five minutes, but it's totally worth the extra 5 or 10. Install hot rollers pre-makeup routine, releasing thereafter to sexy summer curls. Believe me, you'll be happy you took the extra time. This is perfect for those days when you want a little more umph. A dinner party or date night perhaps?
