Effortless Summer Hair: Transform Your Look with These Easy Hairstyles

No matter your mood, we've got you covered with these simple yet impactful hairstyles that are perfect for the summer season.

For the Messy Bun:

Step 1: Begin by applying the Reverie Rake Hair Balm to the mid-length and ends of your hair to create texture and grip.

Step 2: Using a goomee hair loop, pull hair into a top bun (leave out some strands of hair around the face if you want some fringe or tendrils). Pull the goomee over your hair as if you are starting a ponytail, but instead of pulling all of your hair through pull it half way down the length of your ponytail. Twist the goomee so it is in an "X." Grab the bottom half of the ponytail that is not in the loop and wrap it around the "X" pulling it up into a bun. Secure with the goomee. 

Step 3: If desired, you can leave the remaining ends hanging out or twist them and pin them around the edges of the bun for a more polished look.

Step 4: Give your bun and fringe a boost of volume and texture with the O&M Desert Dry Volumizing Texture Spray. To hold your style in place all day, finish with the Kavella Buildable Hairspray.
