I teamed up with Pure Blowout Bar in Encinitas, California to bring you all the hottest summer hair trends. Whether you share this with your stylist, or it gives you a little inspiration to try something fun at home, or you immediately book an appointment at Pure or your nearest blow out bar, I thought it would be fun to share a little hair inspo. Enjoy! Summer hairstyles are fun because they are full of braids and up-do’s to keep that hair off of your neck on those hot humid days. 🙂 No frizz in these hairstyles.
Tayler – who teaches everyone at Pure how to give a blow out, and is a rockstar at styling hair was kind enough to spend a Sunday sharing her tips and tricks and not gonna lie pampering me. 😛 You can follow her on Instagram here.
5 Summer Hairstyles for this Summer
First the Blow Out Bar Experience and How to Get a Proper Blow Out
A proper head massage when getting your hair shampooed. Have you ever gotten your hair highlighted or cut, but the hairstylist just does not give you a proper head massage? Ugh. I know. It’s the worst, and when they do and it’s good, dayum. It’s like it changes your life for the day. Right? Tayler crushed it. Holy moly. I was almost out like a light.
Tayler then showed me how to give myself a proper blow out. I have fine hair and not a lot of it, so it’s important to use a brush that has bristles that won’t pull out my tiny hairs. lol.
Step 1: Start with a soft dry – meaning just take your hair from sopping wet to partially dry – blowing from the roots to the ends.
Step 3: Section out your hair – that way you get a nice smooth effect, and you can give yourself more volume 🙂
Step 3: Use a round brush and no matter which side of your hair you are rolling – make sure the blow dryer is always blowing in the direction of your hair follicles (i.e down) not against them (i.e up).
Step 4: To get that fun pop in the front – blow dry that front section up and round your brush towards the back of your head rather than down that way you get the bounce and volume that you so desire like in a magazine.

You need a 1-1 1/2 inch curling iron (or you can use a flat iron but in the demo below Tayler used a curling iron).
Step 1: Section your hair, and then point the curling iron down, and start wrapping the section of hair around the curling iron starting at the root – hold for 3-5sec and then release. Work your way around your head in the first section, and then undo the 2nd section of hair and work your way around again.
Want a video version? We will have to make one in the future, but in the meantime Tone It Up made a great one that you can watch below.
Make a very lose side braid after you gave yourself some beach waves, pulling each top section of hair all the way through vs. continuing the braid. Start with three sections, and as you pull one section through, pick a new piece of hair to start braiding with, then pull the next section all the way through.

Section off a side of hair and then start creating a fishtail along the side of your head. Once you have finished the fishtail, put a ponytail holder in but pull it down a bit, and then slowly pull out the fishtail so that it’s a bit looser, that way it has a thicker look to it. Then pull the rest of your hair into the ponytail but leave out a small section that you can wrap around the ponytail holder to hide it. Secure the loop of hair with a bobby pin.

The Chic Rocker
Part your hair down the middle and create two sections. You can either do two fishtails or two french braids into a high ponytail. And then wrap hair around to create a bun and secure with bobby pins.
Want help in making your bun. Watch this video below by Carli Bybel.
