Whether you're attending a wedding or another special occasion, styling your hair in the summer, especially for an outdoors event can be a pain. Whatever you choose, you want to make sure the style last all day, but keeps you looking amazing. Culter/Redken Stylist, Jenny Balding, shares with us two easy, DIY hair styles that would be perfect for that big day ahead. 
Disheveled Halo Braid (pictured above)
This is the perfect way to have style your hair if your attending a wedding in the heat of summer.  You never have to worry about it all day and night!  This would look best on an open neckline e.g strapless or thin like straps.
  • Create a middle part and split the hair into two sections
  • Braid each section starting just behind the ear 
  • Bring one braid over the top and secure with hair pin behind ear
  • Use the hair hair pin like an anchor and twist it back on itself. This is the perfect to disguise and secure your halo braid.
  • Then secure through the top sections if necessary with a couple of hair pins
  • Repeat on other side

Sleek Center Braid
This is perfect for summer wedding as it keeps your hair off your face but still allows you to wear your hair down and works with any neckline!
  • Blow dry very straight by using a smoothing, straightening lotion 
  • Section a mohawk section of 2" width coming into a point at the nape
  • Use a dry shampoo on this section to create texture and grip to the hair
  • Reverse braid from the hairline right down to the nape and secure with small band
  • If necessary, finish by using straightening irons to the loose hair  to create a sleek, polished feel.
