Hair Styles and Looks for Summer

Now that summer is here, outdoor concerts and festivals are coming back, people are getting married, trips are being made to the beach and the world is full of life. People are enjoying the outdoors as insects are buzzing around and flowers are in full bloom, brightening the world.

Just as they are incorporated into the beauty of Mother Nature, flowers can be incorporated into your favorite hair and makeup styles as well. If you want to stand out at your next festival or outdoor event, here are some ways to bring flowers into your style.

  1. Headbands

Floral headbands will always bring an outfit together. The best part about this look is that there are so many ways to pull it off. You can use a pre-made headband with fake flowers or you can use real flowers and attach them where a headband would be. Touches of berries will also make your headband stand out amongst the rest.

  1. Peach Tones

Not only are peaches a great summer snack, but it is a great color to bring into your look. Inspired by a peach rose, it looks more natural and brightens your face for that perfect summer glow. The tricky part is making sure you pick the right hue for your skintone.

  1. Clip

Whether your hair is long or short, a pin can help keep back the annoying hair that falls in your face when performing the simplest of tasks. Although you can just put a bobby pin in your hair and call it a day, it sticks out on your hair and could possibly wreck the look you are going for. By adding a flower to the clip, you can hide the bobby pin and keep your look.

  1. Red Hues

If you want a look for date night or a night out, adding dark red colors to your makeup will make you shine throughout the night. As a red rose symbolizes love and romance, your makeup will show that just as well.

  1. Loose Bun

No one wants to do their hair everyday, which is when a loose bun comes into play. But if one of those days comes along and you have somewhere to be, the perfect way to dress it up is with flowers. You can put in a few small flowers throughout the bun or one bigger flower on either side of the bun. Either way, you will add some color to your hair and create an effortless look.

  1. Yellow Colors

As the sun lights up the days and flowers are bright, there is no better way to make your makeup pop than with the color yellow. Inspired by blossoms, these tones will compliment lighter colors, and maybe even a white, flowered headband.
