Gatsby Bob Hairstyle

Try a 1920’s Gatsby Bob

The remake of The Great Gatsby has brought the timeless ‘bob’ front and center once again . . . but with a new twist. The bob has never gone out of vogue, but it just gets a new face-lift now and then. This 20’s inspired bob works great with fine, straight hair or soft wavy hair. This cut can be styled with finger waves, curling iron, flat iron, pin curls, or rollers. To get this look Carrie Mulligan rocked as Daisy, use a flat iron and spray with Alfaparf Illuminating Thermal Protector section by section, tipping ends under as you go.

Messy Bob Hairstyle

Or, Try a Messy Layered Bob

This layered bob, all mussed up, is the perfect style for a laid back summer soiree. The look is edgy and sweet! It works well with medium to thick hair and the shape looks good on all face shapes. To get the look, use your favorite volumizing products like Alfaparf Illuminating Volumizer, Alfaparf’s Precious Oil Eco-Mousse, or Alfaparf’s S4U Ocean Texturizing Styler, and rough-blow-dry your hair upside down till almost dry. Use a round brush or flat iron if needed to roughly finish the look. For a refresh, carry a small texturizing spray with you to instantly spritz back to messy and full!

Messy Layers

Carefree Updo’s are Cool

Soft, wispy, carefree updo’s bring out the feminine side and they are hot! According to Tabatha Coffey, the undone updo is the “it” look for brides today who want a sort of angelic, ethereal look. And the beauty of an imperfect updo is, besides looking totally romantic, it’s quick and easy to do. Get creative and accessorize your do’ with a unique headband, a scarf, or a pretty bow or barrette. When it gets hot and you know hair won’t behave, a boho chic look like this is perfect.

Sassy Short Hairstyle

Oh So Short and Sassy

If you’re into fun short hair, you can create an array of chic, funky, stylish looks with a short trendy hairstyle. This style works best with straight hair. Those with slightly wavy hair can get the look by using a straightening serum and a flat iron. This cut makes a strong style statement, especially when it’s coupled with a head turning hair color. The style fits any face shape so why not try it, if you’ve got the moxie! Short hair always grows into a next new look quickly.

Summer is all about being low maintenance and it’s nice to find a style that can withstand the heat and humidity. Find a style and product that works with your straight, curly or natural wavy hair . . . and life becomes a breeze!
