Summer Hairstyles That Flatter At Any Age


Summer Hairstyles That Flatter At Any Age

The warmer months are just around the corner, which means the summer weddings, pool parties and backyard barbecues are too. There’s something about those hot summer nights that will forever remind you of your adolescence. When the fireflies come out, it means it’s about that time to rotate your sweaters and jeans for sundresses and breezy blouses. Just as it’s necessary to change out your wardrobe, the warmer months call for a hairstyle change-up as well. However, sometimes it can be hard to find a hairstyle that is equipped to withstand the summer heat, looks flawless beneath the evening sun and keeps that youthful summer glow at any age. Here are three hairstyles that flatter at any age––because age is just a number after all.

Short Wavy Bob

If your locks are on the shorter side, the short wavy bob is the summer hairstyle for you. This hairstyle is ultra flattering as it hovers right at the chin to lift the eyes from the neck and is easily styled for a sporty, chic summer look. To achieve the short wavy bob, air-dry your hair to a semi-damp state after the shower. Then apply FS Styling Mousse distributed evenly throughout the hair. Continue to blow dry your hair until completely dry. After your hair is dry, use a curling iron to get those loose coils and apply FS Finishing Spritz for an ultra tousled look.

Medium Beach Wave Shag

The medium beach wave shag incorporates longer-trimmed layers for an easy-to-maintain hairstyle and gives a natural lift to the face. Make this beach wave shag your own with a middle part or deep side part for an extra youthful touch. To get this look, apply smoothing mousse and then use a curling iron to get those loosely coiled curls for the ultimate summertime look.

Long Loose Curls

For our ladies with longer locks, loose curls give a youthful, Bohemian touch at any age. Cascading curls and added volume at your roots instantly disguises those pesky grey strands if you haven’t had time to call your hairstylist for a color treatment for the summer. To get this look, all you need some FS Curl Defining Creme and a curling iron. Apply a small amount of FS Curl Defining Creme to semi-damp hair after a shower and distribute evenly throughout your hair. Scrunch your hair while air-drying or blow drying your hair. After your hair is completely dry, use a curling hair to get those voluminous, loose curls. Finish off with some FS Finish Spray to hold your bohemian look in place all day long.

Embrace the summer sun and your inner youth with one of these summer styles that flatter at any age.

Let’s face it––looking young is all about feeling young. For more hairstyles that will bring out your youth, try one of these three bob haircuts that will make you feel younger.
