Summer 2009: Summer Hairstyles

What’s up Fabulous people?!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. The heat is definitely on in Nashville! It’s been close to 100 degrees these past few weeks, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing us down. Everyone wants to be in a pool, or at a nearby theme park, or maybe in their backyard for a BBQ.

Ms. Lyssa has given us many different clothing choices for the summer. We know how to look good, and feel cool at the same time. The next question is, how do we fix our hair?

Whether you’re black or white, or in between, we women are constantly trying to keep out hair from making us feel hot and uncomfortable, but still look cute. Sometimes African-American women want to go to the beach or the pool, but have problems keeping their hair in check, both before, and after it gets wet. Here are some simple hairstyles you can try at home, or with your hairstylist. These styles will keep you cute, and carefree, the entire summer.

Micro-Braids are perfect for the summer! You can go swimming and pull your braids in a ponytail, worry free. You don’t have to fret about what your hair is going to look like when you get out of the water… (lol) and the braids last for months! (with the occasional tightening process). In addition, ladies with relaxed hair, can use this style to protect your hair from sun damage during the summer.


So many of my friends are have natural hair (not chemically straightened). This style keeps you looking trendy, all while keeping your hair out of your face and neck. So you’re keeping cool, and all eyes are on your cute new do’. If you are like me, and you’re hair is relaxed, you can try this style as well. Pull your curls up into a natural Mohawk type style. Ladies with relaxers…try a roller set first, and then you can have a curly Mohawk too!

If you have long hair, you are a candidate for the style shown above, the French Braid. This trend is more popular since The Hills star, Lauren Conrad, wore her hair like this on the show. You can play with french braids in so many different ways. Try pigtails, or just one braid on the side. Either way, this flirty and fun hairstyle can be worn with your favorite summer dress, keeping you looking fabulous and feeling cool at the same time.

Don’t forget about the ponytail. If all else fails…put your hair in a ponytail or a bun. You can never go wrong with a ponytail. You can wear it up or down…either way, this never goes out of style.

Please remember that confidence is the most important part of a summer do’, If you like it, and you feel good, others will like it too.

Stay Fabulous!
