Summer is around the corner and this year it’s your time to shine.   I asked renowned hairstylist, Penny Doster of Hollywood And Mane Salon,  to provide a few easy steps for a sexy summer makeover.  Here’s what she had to say:

• Bangs are still around and very stylish! While angled fringe Bangs still tops the list, change it up a bit. Try different angles, blunt or solid. Make them thicker or thinner, if long enough part them down the center. Whatever it is, a slight change, bangs are always noticed – even if you don’t change anything else. It’s a great way to change up your look without too much commitment.

• The haircut craze that is still hot and going strong is the Bob, a timeless and classic haircut .  Lately we have started seeing some added length to this cut, with some exaggerated pieces falling below the jaw line on one or both sides with stacked layers.

• Get a brow wax.  Brows can subtract 10 years from our appearance- eyebrows make a difference.

• Clarify – Everyone needs to clarify from time to time and wash hair from the inside to help remove chlorine and impurities.  A great product to use is Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo.

• Protect – spray on hydrating daily UV protector to protect hair from discoloration, fading and all harmful sun rays. It also neutralizes chlorine & metals.  Try Lanza Healing Haircare Swim & Sun.

• Moisturize – Nothing is worse than dehydrated hair especially in the winter.  A good moisturizer is a must for everyone.  Get Euforas Urgent Care (which is also great for sun -burnt skin) or Humectin Extreme Moisture Conditioner by Nexxus Organics.

• GO GREEN!– free yourself of harmful chemicals with the gentle earth-friendly Onesta Haircare shampoo and conditioner.  Always free of parabens and sodium sulfate, your hair will look and feel great when you use pure natural hair care products.

Acknowledge by top stylists for her hair coloring techniques, Penny Doster has 18 years of experience and specializes  in hair coloring, weaves, perms, conditioning treatments as well as prom, wedding and party hair up-dos.

Ahhh….just when I was all set to let my bangs grow out again…

Let the bangs go if you want… its all about customizing your style!

Thanks for the hints! I actually started most of this yesterday. Nothing better than an at home facial, hair color, and wax. Going fresh and light red!
