It can be a difficult decision: Better to sport a long ponytail for summer beach fun, or go with a short, sassy style for a hassle-free vacation? We asked two Garden State hair pros for their hottest tips under the sun.
“Each summer, heat and humidity inspire decision making,” says hairdresser Steven Bollo of Bollo Salon in Montville. “Try a new style with long layers, or lighten up with hair painting for a fresh but subtle look that can last three to six months. Some clients like a short summer bob tucked behind the ear, and others want it all cut for a 1960s Joey Heatherton look.”
“For July and August, we like a simple, side-swept ponytail, a high pony or a braid. Or just twist it up with fun clips. Around your face, consider a few highlights or subtle babylights in light pink, rose-gold or beige-blond,” says Kim Kelly of Suzi’s Salon in Morristown. She adds, “If you plan to swim in a pool, mix a solution of half conditioner and half water. Then spritz it all over dry hair before jumping into the water. Better to have your hair absorb conditioner rather than pool chemicals.”
And that’s the long and the short of it.Click here to leave a comment
