Sure, everyone wants effortlessly glamorous hair for the summer — you know, those air-dried curls or perfectly-tousled beach waves, sans the ocean water grit. Even though the notion of effortless hair seems easy, it's common knowledge that a little bit of effort is required. And summer 2019's newest hairstyles are definitely worth the womanpower. Of course, offerings from brands like OGX, Oribe, and African Pride all provide the hydrating ingredients that you need year-round, with texture that manages to protect your hair from humidity while keeping it light and flake-free... so you can't complain *too* much.
If you like the long, '70s-inspired layers that celebrity hairstylist Jillian Halouska will be styling all summer, then a shine serum or spray is absolutely necessary. Or if you're into '90s R&B diva waves, then a holding spray is very necessary to make sure that your curls don't droop. Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, who works with Kerry Washington and Sanaa Lathan, predicts that protective styles (in the form of ponytails with extensions) will be big for summer, since they're an easy way to give natural hair a break. A strong holding gel is necessary to guarantee that your base stays sleek.
