BEAUTY BAR: Making Waves

The dog days of summer have arrived, and most of us are feeling the heat. These are the days that waterproof mascara, sunscreen and really awesome deodorant are essential. Some Fashionistas also prefer to ditch their long tresses for a cooling summer cut. I’m sure I’m not the only one that is slightly grossed out when you realize that the nape of your neck is completely drenched because you went outside for five seconds in the hot summer sun.

This Fashionista combats the dreaded back of the neck sweat with a super trendy angled long bob, or lob. To give her hairstyle an extra summery feel, she added some beachy waves, which is a great way to style your hair if you’re short on time. Celebrities such as Kate Mara, Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift have been showing off their chic lobs on runways, stages and red carpets all summer long. The lob is definitely the hottest hairstyle of the season.

This Fashionista’s hair isn’t the only thing that is on point. Her fit-and-flare dress from Target is extremely cute and dresses are ideal for keeping cool during these sweltering summer days. I also love her silver studded thongs, the obvious shoe choice for summer.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? If you’d rather not surrender your long locks to keep cool, you can still copy this Fashionista’s beachy waves. To get this look, apply a volumizing mousse to damp hair and scrunch. For a piecier look, add a lightweight styling cream and twist sections of your hair. Finish off by twisting sections of your hair around a large barrel curling iron for a few seconds.
