Be Skeptical of Your Hair Brush

If you’re not careful and using the wrong brush, you can be doing more harm than good while brushing your hair, especially when your hair is wet. Try using a wide-tooth comb, or a Wet Brush; the bristles will be more gentle on your hair. If you’re not styling your hair, avoid using a brush altogether when your hair is wet.

Sexy & Wild Curly Hairstyles That You’ll Love This Summer

Natural curly hair and summer seem like each other’s archenemy. The summer heat and humidity are constantly making your hair curlier and frizzier. To try and battle the frizz you drench your hair in every serum, oil and spray you have handy. Instead of battling the frizz, what if you embrace the humidity and give those curly locks what it’s been asking for – curly hairstyles to rock this summer. Here are 10 sexy and wild curly hairstyles that you’ll love this summer.

Rock Those Natural Curls

We know – it can be kind of intimidating letting your natural curls fly free, but with the help of some hair products, you will love these natural curly hairstyles. To create a controlled frizz look, simply work a small amount of Dear Clark’s Finishing Salve into your wet hair after a shower. The Finishing Salve will provide your curly locks with the shine and texture it’s been craving.

Go Wavy, Baby

Beach waves are one of the hottest summer hair trends, and one of our favorite curly hairstyles. This effortlessly sexy hairstyle looks gorgeous on both short and long hair. Let your hair air dry, and if you still see some fly-away frizzies, smooth them down with Dear Clark’s smoothing elixir. If you want to define certain pieces of hair, go over a couple of strands with a medium-sized curling iron.

Braids Are Your Best Friend

Say it with me: braids are your friend, not foe. We know that braids can look intimidating, but once you get the hang of them, they’re a piece of cake! Go for cute and simple curly hairstyles like Dutch braiding your hair till your neckline and then tying it off into a ponytail, letting your curly or wavy hair fly free.

Get A Haircut Perfect for Your Curls

Sometimes all you need it a strategic haircut that will accentuate your natural curls. Try going for a LOB, with cropped shorter pieces in the back and longer pieces in the front. This will create a flattering angle for your face, and beautifully blended look for your curls. Another haircut we’re loving for curly hair is the shag. This haircut will give your strands a wispy, sexy look instead of frizzy and messy. Both haircuts look gorgeous when you let your hair air-dry and use a small amount of Dear Clark’s Finishing Salve to texturize and control your curly hairstyles.

Summer: it’s hot, it’s humid, and your hair is not looking its absolute best. We get it – It’s hard to have your hair looking smooth, frizz-free and fabulous in the summer. The heat here in Dallas makes it challenging for your hair to look its best, but don’t worry! We’ve gathered our favorite summer hair trends and hairstyles so you don’t have to don’t have to worry about your hair turning into a frizz fest this season. Here’s Dear Clark’s guide to the cutest summer hair trends and hairstyles that are perfect for warm weather.

Beach Waves

Nothing screams “summer” more than beach waves! We love beach waves because it’s the ultimate “mermaid hair” look. Although this summer hair looks effortless, it requires a bit of styling. Using a mid-size curling iron, or flat iron, take random strands of your hair and create definition using the styling tool. Then use a texturizer to get that messy, effortless finish. Hello mermaid hair!

Sleek High Ponytails

Sleek high ponytails are the perfect summer hair trend because not only do they look cool, but they’ll feel cool too. Instead of having your hair sticking to your face and neck because of the lovely humidity and heat, throw it up in one of the sleek ponytails. To add a bit more of style, finish off the ponytail with a messy fishtail braid.

Short Hair, Don’t Care

Short hair is in, and we are loving it! This summer hair trend is taking the beauty world by storm. Get your hair off of your neck this summer by cutting off those long locks, and going for a shorter haircut. From short sleek bobs, to LOBs, you’re going to love your new look. Another bonus about having short hair for summer? It requires very little maintenance and styling time. If your hair naturally dries wavy or curly, add a deep side part, and then spray it with some sea salt spray for a beach-y, beautiful look.

Blonde Hair

As the temperature warms up, hair color is cooling down this summer. Some people shy away when they hear the word “blonde” because they think the hair color won’t flatter their skin tone, but the truth is there are many different hues and colors of blonde hair that complement almost any skin tone. From cool ashy blonde, to a warm honey blonde, or even bronde, this will be one of the hottest summer hair trends.

Braids

Braids, braids, BRAIDS! If you’ve read our beauty blog before, you know that the Dear Clark loves braids because they’re simple, quick and stylish. Braids are one of the best summer hair trends because they don’t require any heat or styling tools, and you won’t have to worry about the summer heat or humidity taking over your hairstyle.

What’s The Difference Between Ombre and Balayage?

Wait – what? If you’ve ever asked yourself what the difference between ombre and balayage are, don’t worry; You’re not alone. It can be hard to keep up with all of the different hair trends out there, but we’re here to help. If you’re looking to lighten up your hair for summer, and add some dimension, ombre and balayage are great ways to do that! Dear Clark is here to explain the difference between these two hair coloring techniques, so you can explain to your stylist exactly what you’re looking for. Let’s settle these confusing hair terms once and for all!

Ombre

The traditional ombre look: Dark roots, gradually getting lighter towards your ends. You and your coloring specialist can choose a color that will complement your skin tone and natural hair color. No matter if you want to go just a few shades lighter, or do a dramatic ombre, this look will give you the dimension you’re looking for.

Ombre is more of a dip-dyed look, while balayage is a hair painting technique. If you don’t want the dramatic look of ombre, you can try sombre. “Wait – what?” Sombre is a soft, more subtle version of ombre. Sombre typically starts blending higher up to achieve a more natural look, but the ends of your hair will still be noticeably lighter than your roots.

Balayage

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: balayage is the popular hair trend that is here to stay! We’ve love this hair trend because it’s customizable to everyone; You can make it as dramatic or as subtle as you want, and any color that you’d like. Balayage is a hair painting technique that creates a more natural-looking lightening effect. Your Dear Clark balayage specialist will know just how to blend your roots to ends for a multi-dimensional color. This hair coloring technique is wonderful because, if it’s done right, it will require very little maintenance and upkeep.

If you’re still not sure what the difference is between the two, come talk to one of our experienced stylists at Dear Clark! We’re always more than happy to answer all of your hair-related questions. Want ombre or balayage? We can help with that too!  BOOK AN APPOINTMENT | CALL: (214) 397-0700

Balayage: Why It Looks Effortlessly Beautiful on Every Hair Color

It’s no surprise that balayage is the hair trend that has been going strong for a couple of years now. This hair coloring technique beautifully blends two different shades together, melting one color into another like a masterpiece. The best part about balayage is you can make it any shade you want: light or dark; warm or cool. Depending on your personal taste, you can easily achieve a gorgeous, natural look.

How Is It Applied?

Rather than using the traditional foil technique, balayage is a freehand technique. This allows your hair to achieve a more natural look, as the colors effortlessly flow into one another. Balayage is applied on the surface of the hair, and the color is not saturated through until the very ends.

It’s Low Maintenance

Another amazing thing about balayage is that it requires very little maintenance. Since you’re not applying the color directly to the roots, it grows out beautifully and much more naturally. No regrowth line = no immediate touchups. The only thing you have to worry about is protecting your color by using the right shampoo, conditioner and other hair products.

Effortlessly Beautiful

This hair trend works wonders on both light and dark hair. It’s the best way to lighten up your hair this summer, without drastically changing your overall hair color. Your Dear Clark color specialist will help you choose the perfect shade for your skin tone. The beauty of it is, balayage works for all hair color and lengths.

Based on your face shape, your color specialist will be able to artfully lighten the pieces of hair framing your face, bringing out your natural features. For a finished look, balayage looks gorgeous on lose curls, or effortless beach waves.

If balayage sounds like something you’re interested in, one of our many color specialists at Dear Clark can help you pick the perfect shade and look for you! BOOK AN APPOINTMENT | CALL: (214) 397-0700
