Summer Hair with Oribe

Oribe helps you beat the heat in style.

The styling team at Oribe chime in to help us survive summer. . . with hair perfectly in tact –

Stay cool.

-

While looking good is important, you never want to sacrifice comfort — hot & miserable is never sexy! The quickest way to cool off? . . . get your hair off of your neck with a breezy, effortless up-do: Use Dry Texturizing Spray (212 872 2756) to add depth, volume and grip. Pull hair up into a relaxed topknot. This look easily transitions from day to night.

-

Be inspired.

-

Go for romance with a dash of whimsy with braids. Try two low braids at the nape, then crisscross and pin them up behind the opposite ear. Spray in a little Après Beach (212 872 2756) for shine. This creates a sleek profile from the front and a sophisticated but youthful style in the back. As the sun goes down and the air gets colder, let the braids down & enjoy the soft waves.

-

So you want to be down.

-

If you are determined to wear your hair down, create a “wind tunnel” for your neck. Pull the bottom layer of hair into a hidden ponytail just off the neck and let the rest of your hair fall over it. This lets air get to your neck (think of it as a personal air conditioning unit) while still giving the appearance of flowing locks.

-

Loosen up.

-

Save the perfectly polished up-dos for the cooler months — summer is all about being carefree.  Pull braids apart for a more lived-in feel; use Après Beach and Dry to add texture and shine to both air-dried and blown-out hair; use your fingers, not a brush, to create a ponytail and spray in Volumista or Maximista (212 872 2756) to achieve volume at the crown.

-

Condition & Protect.

-

Use a hair mask to slick hair back before a day at the pool or the beach. Masque for Beautiful Color (212 872 2756) offers a high level of UV protection to shield your hair from the fading and damaging effects of the sun, and it also gives the hair a unique texture as it dries. Comb it through wet hair and pull it back before heading outdoors. Or let the hair remain loose and wavy. The mask protects and treats your hair all day and then wash it out when you shower for your evening activity—your hair will be softer and healthier than you could ever imagine.

-

Be prepared for anything.

-

Summer is all about going with the flow. Travel sets and purse size products are perfect for all your styling needs. Get pushed in the pool? Spray Après Beach for instant shiny, non-salty waves. Whisked away on a last-minute trip to the Hamptons? The Collection Travel Set (212 872 2756) will keep your locks clean and healthy. Invited on an evening stroll on the beach? Make sure you have some Impermeable to keep humidity at bay. It’s easy to keep your hair looking good all day and night when you have the right products on hand.
