It was somewhere in the middle of last week that I went to sleep on a gray rainy night and woke up the next day to find it was full-fledged summer! When the seasons change so quickly, it can be hard to figure out what to wear and how to style your hair. You suddenly have to remember all those styling tricks from last August.
Here are three cute hairstyles I'll be trying this summer from Fekkai--inspired by the 50s, 60s and 70s.Saks.com asked a couple of bloggers to model the looks created by Farbice Gili, Creative Director of Frederic Fekkai. I was so excited to join Kaitlyn from BeautyBlitz and Amber from BeautyBloggingJunkie on the shoot. I was the model for the 1970s—the photo at the top was our inspiration! I love that the hairstyle is so easy to create and done without being fussy. Check out the Sak's POV blog for instructions on how to create the look and the styles from the 50s and 60s.
My favorite trick I learned from Gili is to mist on Fekkai Beach Waves, a salt spray, like a hair spray. Meaning apply it from far away all over the hair so it creates soft beach waves—you don't need to scrunch it in, which is what I always used to do.
