GOOD HAIR FOR (CANADA) DAYS
Three easy dos to take you from celebration to celebration in style
Picnic in the park A casual day on the grass calls for easy, flowing locks, but a single tiny braid on one side adds a playful nod to hippie summers past. For maximum shine, apply a smoothing, protecting heat-styling serum and blow- dry with a wide paddle brush. Run your flat iron over it if you have time. Braid a sliver of hair at your temple to complete the look.

Evening barbeque This style is breezy and sexy— perfect for sipping rosé cava on the back deck at dusk—but the height up front gives it elevated elegance. Create body and texture by working a volumizing mousse into roots and throughout lengths, and rough-dry, directing the air flow in the direction you want the hair to go. Rake the front part up and back with your fingers and mist with strong-hold hairspray.
GOT2B VOLUMANIAC BODIFYING MOUSSE, $8, SHOPPERS DRUG MART Fun fireworks Let your hair mimic the fireworks with this carefree, messy-on-purpose half-updo. Start with a texturizing cream, airdry or rough-dry, then gather up the hair from the crown of your head into a pony ( leaving some out to cover your ears). Twist the tail around itself and tuck the ends into the elastic, letting stray pieces fly free. Bonus: This look is a great backdrop for sparkly earrings.
