Summer, a.k.a. the perfect season to air-dry your hair is here. Whether you’re a pro or are just starting on your air-dry journey, there are plenty of excellent ways to enhance your texture pattern to make the most of your style this season. Read on to see our favorite ways to style wavy and curly hair this season.

The Top Hairstyles for Summer

Maximum Volume Disco Curls 

Disco Curls are like the 90s supermodel blowout for natural texture. It enhances your curls with maximum volume and creates an insanely elegant finish. The look can be created on all hair types with the use of a curling iron, but we love utilizing natural texture to easily create this look. For best results, cleanse and condition your hair with a curl enhancing formula like All Soft Mega Curls Shampoo & Conditioner. From here, prep hair for air-drying by applying a leave-in conditioner like All Soft Mega Curls Hydramelt. Using this system together will provide nourishment, definition and frizz control for dry or brittle hair to reveal softer, shinier results. If you want extra volume, apply Root Lifter Volumizing Spray at the roots and flip your head upside down and diffuse dry.


Bohemian Waves

Lived-in, imperfect finishes are our favorite way to wear waves this season. The look has plenty of texture without looking too orchestrated. To get the imperfect wave look, utilizing products designed to enhance wavy texture are essential. By using products instead of only hot tools, it allows your hair to take on its own individualized look. For this look, we love prepping damp hair with a mist of Beach Spray and allowing it to dry or using a diffuser to add more hold. Beach Spray is a salt-free spray that will help you achieve perfectly imperfect beach waves without drying out your hair or creating a crunch feel.


Curly Upstyle or Half Up

For days when you want your hair out of your face, or maybe your curls or waves just aren’t quite right — we love an up style or a half-upstyle to enhance your look. To prep strands, add Redken Deep Clean Dry Shampoo to your roots and tousling to give a little extra volume. Then, work Redken Oil For All throughout your mids and ends to add softness and shine. To create a casual look, pull out a few face-framing pieces and then pull your hair up into a high bun or half-up looped bun for a fun, flirty feel. Choosing a full or half-upstyle gives you a chance to show off your natural texture while adding a bit of drama to your day-to-day style.
