When summer comes around, I sometimes have an urge to go blonde. Not totally blonde, just blond-er. The problem is that highlights are pretty pricey, and who has time for a trip to the salon when there is so much fun to be had in the summer months? If you want your hair to have a beachy, sun-kissed look this summer, here is the natural way to do so!

  1. Create your own salt spray: Mix a bit of salt with water, spray it on your hair (which opens the cuticle), and then go lay in the sun. This will fade your hair into a lighter color.images (1)
  2. Grab some lemon juice: Before heading out into the sun, add some lemon juice to your strands. The acid in the juice opens your cuticle, same as the salt water example above, leaving it open to the sun’s rays.
  3. Mix lemon and orange: If you are going for more golden, subtle highlights, mix orange and lemon juice together and do the same steps as above.

These DIY highlight concoctions are so easy to make, and fun to implement! Spray stuff on my hair, then go lay in the sun? Easy peasy.

Ladies, if you have a dude in your life then odds are you try to keep him in mind when you are getting ready to see him. Do you ever wonder what sort of hair style your dude prefers? Well, here are a few hair styles that, according to surveys, guys like the most.

  1. Soft waves: Reportedly, guys like hair that is wavy and soft. It looks feminine and sweet! Curl your hair with a big barrel curling iron and then separate the curls with your fingers to achieve this look.FB3A9969-X2
  2. Natural hair: If your hair has a natural texture to it, flaunt it! According to dudes, the less “torture” you put your hair through the better.
  3. Easy updoo: This can range from a simple bun to a curly creation! Guys like the casual yet glamorous look this gives off.
  4. Beachy bedhead: Not only do girls love beachy waves, guys do too! They say it looks fun and carefree.
  5. Sporty pony: It never occurred to me that guys liked the laid back look, but apparently a lot of guys like sporty high ponies!

Now, ladies, you should never let a guy dictate how you think and feel about yourself. This list was just to show you a few looks that the dude in your life might fancy.

You do you, and he will be head over heels!

Waking up in the morning is tough enough, but waking up early and being in a rush can be a total disaster!  Between deciding what to wear and doing your makeup, there’s barely enough time to give your hair a little TLC.  Luckily, there is a way to pull off that crazy bed head you get from a long nights sleep.  In a few simple steps you can achieve the perfect messy hair…think of it as “un-styling” your hair.Chelsea Crockett- bed head hair

First and foremost, you have to embrace your natural hair texture.  By playing off your hairs natural waves or curls, you’ll be able to style your hair much faster and easier.  Start by brushing out tangles with a wide-toothed comb, NOT a hairbrush.  A comb will take out specific tangles, while a hair brush will get rid of your natural texture.  Next, run water through your fingers and add it to the pieces of hair that look the limpest.  This will add body to dull, lifeless strands.  Add dry shampoo to your roots for freshness and volume.  A little dry shampoo goes a long way for instant fullness.

It’s as simple as that, and no heat is required!  Embrace that perfectly beautiful and messy bed head!
