Lake Hair Don’t Care

Posted by: Stella Johnson

We all know summer is the best time of the year to spend up at the lake or outside with friends and family. If you’re in a pinch and don’t have time to wash and style your hair, don’t worry!

Here are three trendy style tips that can take you from the lake to 4th of July activities, or dinner with friends.


Bubble Braids

Bubble braids are a fun and trendy way to style your hair to give you a faux braid look! All you need is clear elastics and a comb. 

Split your hair into two sections, starting with pig tails. Every 1-2 inches add another elastic until you reach the end. Use your finger tips to pull the hair in between the elastics to create the bubble effect. Finish with your favorite hairspray. I recommend Freestyle from Oribe!

Claw Clips

Back from the 90’s, claw clips are all the rage. They can take you from messy hair to a cute polished look in seconds. These versatile clips also work well for half up styles. I always start with a texture spray to give my hair some grit, my favorite is Dry Texture from Oribe. Pull back, twist, and secure. 

High Ponytails and Messy Buns

Transform your messy hair into stylish beach waves with Bumble and bumble’s Beach Wave Foam. Starting with dry hair, scrunch the product in to accentuate your beach hair and add texture. Toss it up into a high pony or a messy bun with a cute scrunchie. I like to finish mine with Matte Waves by Oribe to tame any flyaways and add some hold. 

These hair styles are easy to achieve with just a few products will give you that carefree summer vibe. Stop by Cole’s Salon to pick up your perfect summer hair products.
