Styling your hair for summer can be a fool’s mission. Humidity, rain, crispy pool-water hair and relentless pollution can all cause your ‘do to have a mind of its own. Throw in weddings, concerts and all-day festivals; we’re this close to just wearing hats all season. Instead, we’re scoping out the hottest Tik Tok hair trends to keep our mane in check. With the help of some top hair products to promote healthy locks, we’ll be ready for anything.
TIK TOK HAIR TRENDS WORTH TRYING
This super cute style comes from @ayseacun_. Starting with super straight hair, create a woven braided look to keep frizzy hair at bay. Use Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir leave-in treatment to coat each strand in a lightweight serum for thicker, fuller-looking. Then seal damp hair with amika’s The Wizard to ensure hair stays protected under heat.
Part breathless beachy braid, part throwback 80s side pony, this fun look from @mariaaiellohair requires a few rubber bands and some skilled hair weaving, but with a little practice, it may just be our new go-to summer look. Heading to the cottage, this look can be tousled for a maintenance-free weekend away. Start by hydrating hair first, crispy ends will detract from this luscious look. We love amika’s Water Sign– a hair oil that infuses 8 different oils with hyaluronic acid to penetrate and protect. Water Sign also nourishes deeply to prevent breakage.
SHORT HAIR LOOKS WE LOVE FROM TIK TOK
Short hair, don’t care! There’s no better time than the present to shear your hair short, and we’re feeling this look from @katyguerralitfromwithin. Sectioning hair off, then braiding under results in a flawless frizz-free frame. Get the look by sealing each shaft with the Volumizing Blow Mist from Olaplex. This high-tech hair hydrate-r combines bamboo extract lipopeptides to strengthen hair and advanced polymers to smooth fuzzy strands.
Finish with PUNKAWALOP by Lush. This matte hair clay works hard to take humidity out of the equation and keep your braid looking strong all night long.
This adorable look by @krystalclearmakeup looks peachy on bob lengths. Refresh your scalp to keep this unfussy look all weekend long. boscia’s Probiotic Exololiating Powder works on both your face and scalp, so if you’re headed camping or travelling light, this is a useful item to pack. Safe for colour-treated hair, your scalp will love the gentle exfoliation. Then, on damp hair, use Olaplex No 9 Hair Serum, which shields hair from pollution for 48 hours and provides heat protection up to 450°F (232°C). Go over hair with the amika High Tide magic wand for effortless beachy waves in no time flat.
A bob cut is a bit limiting for style options, so we love this look from @molly.ringler. Start by running a drop or two of Mielle Rosemary and Mint Strengthening Oil on dry ends. This helps seal the cuticle and prevent further breakage. Then spritz Lush #Gains Protein Spray leave-in treatment made with Jackfruit to strengthen and give your short bob some texture. This punchy purple elixir is highly pigmented in order to tone hair, perfect for gray locks.
Spruce up for a new look with your favourite dry shampoo.
