Daily Buzz Style 9×9 – The Perfect Summer Hairstyle


Aahhh summer.  Such a beautiful time of pool, relaxing, playing, keeping busy, BBQs, riding bikes, camping, you name it!  Seriously, who has time to do their hair?  Not only who has time, but who wants to bring a 410 degree curling iron anywhere close to their hair?  I did it the other day and was sweating within minutes.  So when asked to submit my perfect summer hairstyle fo Daily Buzz: Style, I just knew this had to be it.  Three different ways to style your hair without using heat.  No heat + cute hair = happy momma!


No Heat: The Headband Trick

That took me absolutely no time at all.  And guess what the added bonus is?  They last all day.  I get more compliments when I wear my hair like this than when I set for an hour and curl it.  Compliments like “oh my gosh, what did you do to you hair?  I love it!”  and “how long did that take you?”  Well, here’s what I did:  I woke up this morning.  

No Heat: Little Buns


The next trick gives you a big of a funkier feel, but if you are like me and like funky hair from time to time, this one is perfect.  Specially for the summer when messy, crazy and effortless is totally ‘in.’  My hair also takes to the curl really well, so if yours holds it less, it will be a softer version of this.  If you want to skip to this section in the video, it starts at 4:45.


No Heat: The Braid

This last look is the simplest for the night before but the outcome is still wonderful.  It gives a beachy waves type feel and at the very least it gives you a great base for some other styles.  To finish this look off, all you need is a 3 barrel curling iron if you want it to look beachy starting at the roots.  If you just want loose curls you can try adding a few beachy curls with a one inch curling iron.  I have a tutorial for this type of beach curl here.  If you want to go directly to this tutorial in the video it starts at exactly 8 minutes!  
I added the braid in front for a different look, but you get the idea.  And like I said this can be a great base for a lot of different looks. 
And now I put together a little tutorial for your benefit, so you can see more specifically how I do each one.  I hope you enjoy it!  And seriously, this is the best thing that has ever happened to my hair/getting ready regime.  It’s incredible.
Just in case you want to jump to a particular tutorial, No heat curls with a headband is first up.  Go to 4:45 to see no heat – little buns.  Go to 8:00 to see the braid.
I hope this post has given you a few ideas on how to wear your hair in the summer.  No heat, cute hair works for me!  Give one or all a try and let me know how they work out!  Be sure to check out the other Daily Buzz: Style hairstyles as well!
Have a great day!

    Hi Natalia,

    did you do anything different to film/upload/… your video? I can’t watch it, it says it’s not available for my country (Germany). I’d love to see it though!
