Summer’s Sun-Kissed Tresses
Not all highlights are created equal, but it’s summer and warmer hair tones are hot on the solstice trend radar. If you are blonde (bottle or a la natural), capturing sun-kissed summer locks will give you that untroubled, life-is-good vibe that will be contagious at every beachfront party.
Channel your inner Marilyn
For some of the blondies in the BeautyGrl office, the go-to hair product is Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Marilyn Hair Treatment ($22.95). This pre-wash treatment will gently give your strands a lighter, sunnier shade and is formulated with soothing chamomile, brightening lemon and moisturizing olive oil. In addition, softening linseed gel, which is jam-packed with protein, vitamins and minerals, will work to hydrate and strengthen hair.
Pass the honey, Honey!
Our earthy-crunchy beauty gals swear by honey! Achieving honey-colored highlights will bring sweet success to darker blondes and light brownies. Simply apply honey directly to damp hair, let it sit for two hours and rinse. If you don’t want to attract a swarm of bees, create a mixture of equal parts honey, lemon and warm water in a spray bottle. Spritz on wet hair and warm up in the sun. An added bonus to this sore-throat-concoction? Honey will make your hair super-shiny and give it an extra bounce.
