Long bangs teased into a casual centre parting or swept into a season-savvy side part can make for the perfect finishing touch to any style or summer outfit. However here at Supercuts we know all too well the perils of dealing with a fringe and maintaining your style during the warmer months. Summer means warm nights, scorching sun and a gorgeous golden glow but it also brings with it perspiration, humidity and water, which certainly aren’t great for your bangs. Here are our tips on how to best style your fringe to keep you cool, calm and collected no matter what the weather.
Styling is key when it comes to taming your fringe in the heat. The last thing you want to be thinking about is how to fight flyaways and frizz when there’s cocktails to be sipped and rays to be soaked up, right? Perfecting the handy tuck-and-roll technique is essential as this will allow you to create an array of beautiful looks that will get your fringe off your face and out of humidity’s way.
Simply roll the lengths of your bangs and tuck them in along the hairline before securing with a few subtle hair grips and spritz of Fudge Skyscraper to keep your style in place. Make tight rolls for a sleek controlled finish or leave looser for a more casual, undone, boho vibe. The same technique can be applied using plaits instead of rolls if you fancy shaking it up a bit!
Choosing the right products to suit the season is also key to keeping your fringe looking fabulous as temperatures rise. We recommend the Mizani Thermasmooth Shine Extend Anti-Humidity (£12.90, Supercuts) for adding lustre to your locks while shielding your hair from the effects of humidity and moisture. This brilliant formula is fortified with C3 Smoothing Complex which will protect and nourish your hair leaving it shiny, soft and super sleek.
While you’re out in the sun enjoying your new fringe control techniques, don’t forget your heat protection. Condition is key to keeping your bangs looking beautiful so get your hands on EIMI Perfect Me BB cream for your hair, which helps protect your locks while smoothing frizz. Simply drop into your nearest Supercuts salon and we will be more than happy to guide you through some more brilliant products.
