4 Chic Hair Trends You Need To Try This Summer

We tapped seasoned stylist and Next in Beauty contest winner Angie Hunt to share the summer’s trendiest looks as well as styling tips using TRESemmé’s coveted products.

The return of summer heat means it’s time to switch up your hairstyle. Embrace the sunshine and warm weather with one of these four looks, whether you want an easy updo, a rock-star-worthy tousled cut or something in between. Whatever style you choose, the right hair products are key to achieving red-carpet-level locks at home. (Think keratin-infused smoothing serum, frizz-fighting styling cream and weightless hairspray).

To get you inspired, we’ve asked Angie Hunt, an expert hairstylist and the winner of FASHION’s Next in Beauty styling competition, for tips on how to pull off each ’do at home using products from TRESemmé’s iconic range.

Slick Wet-Look Hair

This fun and sexy trend, (as seen on Kylie Jenner, Victoria Monet and  Zendaya) works for all lengths and textures. The key is a high-gloss finish, Hunt says. Start with towel-dried hair that’s still half wet. If you have straight hair, go over it with a fine-toothed comb. To keep the look locked in, apply TRESemmé Ultra Definition Strong Hold Gel mixed with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum.

“The humidity-resistant gel and serum together will give your hair a glossier finish if you’re going for that glass look,” Hunt says, adding that when it comes to this style, “don’t be shy with the product.”

For curly hair, Hunt recommends mixing TRESemmé Ultra Definition Strong Hold Gel with conditioning TRESemmé One Step 5-in-1 Sleek Cream for shiny, movable texture and hold. Avoid using a comb or brush on wet-look curls, Hunt advises—in fact, try not to touch them at all until they’re dry. Use clips to help them set in the shape you want.

Regardless of your hair type, you can finish this look by misting on TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray to “control frizz without leaving a stiff or sticky finish,” Hunt says.

If you’re looking for a simple updo that will take you from brunch to dinner, this elegant style is the one.

Achieve Gabrielle Union’s delicate look from home in just a few simple steps. Start in the shower with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner for smooth, sleek strands. While your hair is still damp, apply TRESemmé One Step Blowout Balm, and then blow-dry it upwards and toward the back of your head with a paddle brush. “This will set your hair for the updo style while it’s still wet,” Hunt explains. Use a flatiron to tame any unruly strands.

For a sleek, high-shine look, apply TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum before pulling your hair into a high ponytail. Next, twist it into a bun, securing it with bobby pins as you go.

For a more undone look (like Emily Blunt’s ‘do), create a loose braid on top of your head, applying TRESemmé One Step 5-in-1 Texture Mist for texture and hold. Tug gently on the edges of the braid to create even more texture. Finish by securing your hair in a high ponytail and creating a loose bun, pinning it down as you go.

Finish both looks by applying TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Anti-Frizz Hairspray for soft hold.

This carefree look (worn by Florence Pugh) is perfect if you’d like to really refresh your hairstyle this season.

Start by prepping your damp locks with TRESemmé One Step Blowout Balm for smoothing heat protection. Next, create a side part and blow-dry your hair at a 90-degree angle from the scalp, moving in the direction you want it to be styled. Create waves with a large curling iron, but “leave out the ends to make it look a little undone and not too curly,” Hunt recommends. Finish with humidity-resistant TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Anti-Frizz Hairspray for frizz control that still allows natural movement.

For a softer, more polished look  a la America Ferrera, Hunt suggests applying TRESemmé Pro Pure Detangle and Smooth Moisturizing Leave-in Conditioner before styling for a smooth finish. Then use a large curling iron to create a soft, slightly- flipped-out curl at the ends.

Side Bangs

As a nod to the return of Y2K style, side bangs are back (just ask America Ferrera, Keke Palmer and Liza Koshy). Good news: For this look, you don’t actually need bangs— just a deep side part and the right products.

Start by applying TRESemmé One Step 5-in-1 Volume Mist, and then blow-dry your hair using a back-and-forth motion and a vented brush. This will tame any cowlicks, says Hunt. As your hair dries, blow-dry it in the direction you want it to fall.

Once you’re happy with the look, finish with TRESemmé Ultra Fine Mist Hairspray, which “locks out frizz and pro- vides hold while keeping hair touchable,” says Hunt.
