Get Sexy Summer Hair! By Trisha Severud

Aveda Dry shampoo is the best! This amazing product is by far my favorite thing ever! I know it’s intended for a no wash day, but I love it any day first wash or day three wash.

This dry shampoo makes my hair feel full of life and so sexy! It gives me a rough texture that still allows my hands to run threw it. Some days when the color is feeling blah, this product makes it feel new again . I can’t say enough great things about this.  Here are a few tips to quick summer sexy hair.

  1. Don’t overthink your sexy beachy waves. The goal is to look like you just got out of the pool and your hair is getting whipped around by the wind, the messier, the better.
  2. Get that long and loose look by wrapping two-inch sections of hair around a large-barrel curling iron, leaving the ends out so it looks a little undone. Don’t make the curls look too defined as you don’t want the matchy look, were going for SEXY!  Now flip your head over and brush through the curls with your fingers and finish with Aveda Control hairspray.
  3. Summer nights call for a simple Bridget Bardot Bump – the sexiest big-hair looks are the ones that really go for it and look full from ear to ear.  Start by flipping your head over and back-comb the hair along your crown, loosely pull it back loosely and clip it.
  4. End the week with the School Girl Braid.  Before bed apply some dry shampoo, braid your hair into a low side braid before bed, and when you wake up, it’ll look lived-in and relaxed. If it looks too messy, re-braid, but don’t brush it out.

Summer Blondes, By Anna Habrat

Summertime means our hair gets a little lighter. From the sea, salty air,  chlorine in the pool and the sunshine as we are walking to lunch. There’s no stopping it. So embrace the lightening and swing by Bokaos Aveda in the heart of Pasadena and let’s make it look more natural, blend it or make it pop.

Eclipting is a technique Ian Michael Black, Aveda’s Global Color Director created a few seasons ago that has been recently updated. It creates a soft lightening effect that looks super natural because the highlight does not start from the scalp but slowly develops into the ends of the hair. What it translates to you, is a low maintenance color you can update a little bit each month or have done once and let it slowly grow out into the Fall.

Babylights have been all the rage for the last few years. These micro highlights might take a little while to put in since they require adamant detailed work to make the highlights look so small and blended it literally looks like your hair grew out of your head this way. It leaves very little of your natural rootiness between the highlights so you look more like a natural blonde, but offers a buffer to the grow out. This look is amazing but you do need to be in the salon every 6-8 weeks to touch up.

Blorange is the new upgrade from Rose Gold. It offers Blondes a little peachy pink hue without fully committing to being a strawberry blonde. I can either gloss it all over or feather it into the ends of the hair. It’s a little warmer of a tone and will nicely compliment a beautiful summer glow. Because the color is a demi-permanent, the color will last about 6 weeks and will gradually wash out. Which is about how long we have before the next IT color hits Instagram.

I’m bleach & tone and proud of it! I think it’s why I have a lot of blonde clients. They trust me to take care of their precious hair and I understand what a subtle tonal change will do to a guest’s complexion. Each and every one of my hairs is bleached blonde and glossed or toned a buttery yellow. I love having bright blonde hair. I love the old Hollywood blonde vibe with all black outfits.

So what am I going to do for you? Pop into Bokaos Aveda Hair Salon Pasadena and say hello! Let’s talk about how to update your hair for summer! Or revive those tresses after a vacation! There’s no better time to get your to look exactly how you want it. Am I right?
