S um­mer is the time to show off you tans and su­per out­fits. But what’s a good at­tire with­out a good hairdo? We speak to Zin­granwon Shat­sang, cre­ative di­rec­tor, Zido Sa­lon, Mum­bai, to show us four hair­styles that can be teamed with the most prac­ti­cal sum­mer looks.

FLO­RAL SUM­MER DRESSES TEAMED WITH A MESSY BUN

Noth­ing works bet­ter dur­ing sum­mers than an updo. But we def­i­nitely wouldn’t rec­om­mend a bor­ing bun. In­stead, you can opt for a messy bun that is both stylish and do-able dur­ing sum­mers. With a flo­ral dress, it will add on to your girly charm.

If you have straight hair, just twist it up into a sim­ple, messy bun with a few ends pok­ing out and you’re set. Curly hair will need some more at­tan­tion. Ap­ply a hair styling gel and curl con­trol mousse on your tresses be­fore blowdry­ing it. Tie all the hair into a pony­tail and di­vide it into three parts. Twist each sec­tion be­fore you pin them around the base, form­ing a bun. Se­cure the bun us­ing bobby pins and spray a fin­ish­ing prod­uct.

JUMP­SUITS WITH MESSY SIDE BRAIDS

If a va­ca­tion is on your mind, jump­suits are an ab­so­lute must. This ver­sa­tile out­fit comes in var­i­ous styles and can be dressed up or down with ac­ces­sories such as cool bags, flip flops, light shrugs, etc. Since most jump­suits are ei­ther off-shoul­dered or spaghetti strapped, a trendy side braid will win you the ‘wows’.

Spritz a styling spray from a dis­tance onto your roots. Gather all the hair to one side and di­vide it into three equal parts to make a plait. Next, take a back­comb­ing brush and gen­tly rake the braid in an up­ward di­rec­tion, mov­ing from ends to the start­ing point of the braid. Do this till you get the per­fect de­gree of messi­ness, af­ter which you can seal the look with a fin­ish­ing spray.

WHITE PANTS AND LIGHT JACK­ETS WITH SLEEK STRAIGHT HAIR

One thing to be pushed to the back of your closet in sum­mers is your denim. In­stead, opt for airy white pants along with light shirts and cot­ton jack­ets. This look can be car­ried to work when teamed with sleek straight hair.

Spritz some anti-frizz serum on damp hair and blow-dry it. With the help of a pad­dle brush, tidy your locks and iron them with a tong, sec­tion by sec­tion. Make sure your trimmed fringe is in per­fect con­di­tion. Use a shine spray to com­plete the look. For the night look, push your fringe back with a big brooch hair­band.

SHORTS AND KNOT­TED SHIRTS WITH BEACHY WAVES

Sum­mers mean nu­mer­ous trips to the shores. Glam it up for your beach trips with knot­ted t-shirts in cool colours along with a hot pair of shorts. This look is not only a Bol­ly­wood favourite, it is also one of the most prac­ti­cal ones and can be car­ried to malls and movies too. Team it with cool beachy waves and let them know you have ar­rived.

Get the look!

Di­vide the hair into four equal sec­tions and then braid ev­ery sec­tion till the ends. The in­ten­sity of the waves will de­pend on how tight the braids are; so if you are look­ing at achiev­ing loose waves, make sure you braid the hair into a loose plait. At­tach a dif­fuser to the hairdryer and dry your hair com­pletely. Use a hair spray be­fore open­ing up the plaits. Gen­tly scrunch your open tresses and you’re ready.
