Summer Beauty: It’s Time for Sunshine and Romance

Three_Graces_Beauty_TrioBring the romance of summer front and center with soft twisted hair in classic shapes and rosy-hued cheeks.  Since summertime means longer days, sunshine and hot humid weather, it’s the perfect opportunity to try out some gauzy and unstructured styles.

Soft natural waves are the perfect look this time of year.  This no fuss style is ideal, as it doesn’t require sitting in front of a mirror with a hot curling iron or straightener.  If your hair is naturally straight, fake a wave by sectioning your hair into four pieces and braiding each one before heading to bed.  Spray with a little hairspray to keep the style.

In the morning, simply un-do the braids and brush out the waves with a soft bristle brush or your fingertips.  You don’t want to completely loose the effect, so make sure only to run the brush or your fingers through once or twice.  Keep the hair off your face by making a deep side part and pinning in back sections for a light and easy half up-do.  You can accent with optional twists and/or braids to enhance that classical romantic aesthetic.

Another option that is great for both long and shorter hairstyles starts by creating a large loose French braid around the crown of the head.  Make sure to pull pieces of hair out to keep it from looking overdone.  To give the look a little something extra, try braiding in ribbons of lace.  Then with the remaining hair, make a side ponytail or bun at the nape of your neck for an easy style that not only looks beautiful, but will also keep you cool and comfortable when the temperature rises.

Finish the look off with a flush of soft pink on the cheeks and lips for the perfect dreamy warm-weather beauty look.

  2. I love the soft and dreamy vibe of these photos. And yes to braided hair styles in the summer.

  3. I wish I could braid my hair this way. It looks so beautiful. I’m convinced my fingers don’t listen to me.

  4. Braiding hair after a shower is something I’d do when I had long hair and it leaves your hair so soft and beautifully wavy! Ah how I miss those days!
    These are such cute hair styles

    Wow these are beautiful photos. Love the style and clothes.

  6. LOVE these looks, both beauty and fashion are perfect for the summer season. I love wearing my hair similar to these models by adding braids and curling it to create voluminous waves. I also really like how the makeup isn’t too much. Personally I wouldn’t wear that much contour but for a model spread such as this it makes total sense! Overall I really love the work you did with styling these images. Great job!

  7. WOW! Very talented. IT’S a stunning photo and amazing post:) Loving it

    XOXO
