    2014 Summer Hairstyles: Hair Accessories

    You will miss out on quite a few hairstyle choices if hair jewellery or jewellery in general is not your cup of tea. Hair jewellery is definitely in style this summer. Colourful flower garlands and fashion jewellery brighten up the hairstyle and contribute to a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

     

    Tip: The hair accessories should fit the hairstyle. Flower garlands and modern hair bands work best with casual hairstyles and free-flowing hair

    2014 Summer Hairstyles: The Head Scarf

    As far as hair accessories are concerned, head scarfs can be as colourful and interesting as flower garlands. With her accurately cut fringes and the large earrings our bohemian looking model seems to be ready for a dance in the village square.

     

    Tip: Chose pastel prints, animal or flower prints, which go with your hairstyle and outfit

    2014 Summer Hairstyles: Chignons

    2014 Summer Hairstyles: Casual Chignons

    Dependent on the styling, chignons can be glamorous or they can be pretty but practical solutions for serious and not so serious athletic activities. Chignons are particularly popular on hot summer days because they keep the hair out of the face (see the semi-updo on the left) or out of face and neck as in the casual updo on the right. The latter version will help to develop a seamlessly tanned complexion.

     

    Tip: Modern chignon styles are casual or undone. It is alright for a few strands of hair to escape from the updo

    2014 Style for Hot Days: Bring Your Own Shade

    Sun visors protect the face from the sun’s rays without wearing a hat. The casual Afro look and the visor are an unbeatable combination for sunny days.

     

    Tip: Sun visors, hats, baseball and other peaked caps are ideal for a stylish look in wind and sun

    2014 Summer Hairstyles: Ponytail

    2014 Summer Hairstyles: The Big Hair Ponytail

    Ponytails are an always popular summer hairstyle. Give it extra volume on top of the head for a slightly different look.


    Tease the hair over the forehead and on the crown of your head and gently gather it with the rest of the hair in the ponytail. The sleek side hair emphasises the increased volume on top. Apply hairspray for extra hold.

     

    Tip: Gather the top hair into the ponytail ever so gently to create as much volume as possible

    2014 Summer Hairstyles: Pretty Pastel Hair Colours

    Soft pastel tones are the new summer hair colours. Nicole Richie and Kelly Osbourne wear these trendy pastel hair colours. If you are not quite sure whether your hair will look pretty in pink or pastel colours you may want to first try the new soft colours on your hair ends only.

     

    Tip: The new soft pastel colours are not quite as bright and electrifying as the sorbet colours. They are definitely warmer and enhance the allure of tanned summer complexions

    2014 Summer Hairstyles: Braided Hairstyles

    Braided hairstyles are part of summer like cocktails with umbrellas are part of beach parties. This sideways braid is ideal for hot summer days.

     

    Tip: Perk up the classic braid by braiding colourful ribbons into it like women have done for many centuries
