I’m usually really lazy with my hair (I don’t cut it enough, I don’t style it very much) but some of these summer hair trends are getting me excited about making an effort with my hair. Here are a four great summer 2012 hair trends.
The painted hair trend is definitely for the brave, but small painted areas could be fun for a night out or a special event. Pastel colours are idea to pull this off, and it works best with hair that is tied back or put up.
It bothers me the way everyone does “festival” collections and “festival” fashion now, but the idea of festival hair is quite nice. It should be long, a bit messy, and totally effortless. They did it super well at Givenchy. Speak to your stylist at Rush Hair about layering your hair so that you can get the festival look with very little effort (which is the ultimate goal for most hair styles…)
Alexander Wang did an extreme wet look for his spring summer 2012 catwalk show, but you can easily tone this down a bit, so you don’t literally look like you came out of the water. This is a great look post-beach.
Braids are a huge trend this season, wear them wrapped around the top of your head, falling down your back, or as part of an up do. And they can be slick, neat, or super messy, like the ones from Michael Kors (pictured.)
