What’s Up Future Flippers!
I know that it’s hot outside and everyone is starting to put away their winter clothes and start pulling out their summer gear, but something that should not be locked away in the dark, cold box of winter’s past is …SCARVES! Thinner, lighter scarves can be worn during the summer and for this reason I have decided to do a post on great hairstyles to wear with scarves, along with some other cute styles that don’t require a scarf.
CHOO CHOO! HERE COMES THE STYLE TRAIN! And it’s carrying up-do’s, lazy ponies, headbands, and loose braids!
Because scarves are so…in your face, you want to make sure that your hair isn’t so busy that it’s distracting, or takes away from the scarf. That’s where the up-do comes in. Pulling your hair up into a bun is a cute way to keep your hair from taking attention away from the scarf. There is another benefit to this, if keeps you cool in the heat. If you have all this crazy hair flying around, like me, it gets really hot. An up-do will keep your body cool while wearing the scarf and is very elegant and fashion forward. Here’s a cute bun you could wear with a scarf:
Next up we have lazy ponytails. Let’s say you don’t feel like wearing a bun, or you think up-do’s make you look weird. Whatever your reason is, this is a great alternative. You simply run your fingers back through your hair, and without brushing it or combing it, wrap an elastic tie around your hair. This will leave a messy, unconventional ponytail that gives you that, “Yes I look this good when I wake up in the morning” vibe. Here’s an example of a lazy ponytail:
Along with the lazy ponytail, is its evil step sister, the loose braid. Pulling your hair to the side and doing a fishtail or simple loose braid is a cute way to not pull your hair back, and still have a chic and uncomplicated look. See below:
Finally, the simplest of all the styles…a headband. Just comb through your hair and push on a cute headband and wear your hair out, but to the back. Still very simple and won’t distract from your awesome scarf. Here’s a picture of Reese Witherspoon wearing a headband:
Hope you enjoy your summer style!
