From great hairstyle tricks to versatile cuts and the latest product must-haves, these ideas will get you the best hair you've ever had this summer.
Do The Blogger-Approved Topknot
Less ballerina, more model-off-duty, the point of this look is its offhand execution—don’t strive for perfection. To replicate blogger Susie Bubble’s signature topknot, just flip your hair upside down, gather and twist it into a bun at the crown of your head and secure it with an elastic. If a few haphazard strands stick out, so be it.
Apply Amazing Hair Oils for Next-Level Shine
A few drops of these new oils transform your hair from dry and dull to sleek and glossy. Use as a heat-styling protector or to smooth frizz in one step. (Plus, they’re infused with incredibly hydrating botanicals to strengthen as well as hydrate.)
Add One (Or A Few!) of The Prettiest Bobby Pins
Make a side part or updo instantly more elegant and charming with one—or several—of these.
Use This Life-Changing New Way to DIY Color Your Hair
This new DIY haircolor doesn’t need mixing—and you can use it over and over again. A dual chamber inside the bottle mixes the color inside, dispensing a permanent haircoloring mousse. Once you’re done, put it back in the medicine cabinet: When you need to touch up your roots a few weeks later, just spray it in.
Go For The Pixie Cut
Crisp, clean and modern, this look is pure confidence and femininity. For model Saskia de Brauw’s gamine style here, comb through your hair with a finishing product (oil, anti-frizz, dry shampoo, etc.).
Add a Glittery, Glamorous Touch
Tucked at the sides or used to pin back flyaways, these jewel-encrusted combs and bobby pins are an ideal combination of dainty and Gatsby-esque glitz: They dress up a casual look and go beautifully with something a little more polished.
Get A Personalized At-Home Color Experience
Silicon Valley’s newest start-up aims to recreate the salon experience at home—for real. At Madison-Reed​.com, experts help you pick your shade from formulas developed with help from hair guru Sally Hershberger. At the click of the “send” button, they’re delivered to your door, along with color-enhancing shampoo and conditioner, barrier cream to keep your hairline clean and detailed instructions. Bonus: In some cities, you can order up a colorist along with the color—like Tekserve but infinitely prettier.
Spray On The Perfect Waves
A bob is the ultimate length for playing with texture. These new sprays create body, thicken hair all over, help create curl and keep your style in place. Plus, they leave hair feeling airy, light and soft and soak up excess oil, making them great for perking up second- (or third-) day hair.
Get The Wind-Swept Bob
Think slightly mussed, blown about, strewn with flyaways—so romantic. Fashion consultant Yasmin Sewell pulls off wavy volume with her super-blunt cut effortlessly.
Experiment With The New Ponytail
The classic style was reinvented this year at shows like Valentino and Chanel, but it’s as easy as ever. Model Jen Dau shows off the reimagined ponytail. Rolando gave it texture with John Frieda Luxurious Volume Root Booster ($7, JohnFrieda.com). “You don’t want the ends too perfect,” he says.

Add Something Unexpected
Backstage at Chanel, über-stylist Sam McKnight crimped and/or braided extensions into models’ hair, then wove in multicolored Chanel tweeds and pearls. The look is a little bit boho, totally glamorous and easily replicated: Pull hair back into a ponytail, make a few random braids in it and then tie colorful ribbons to your elastic. Spray in volumizer and tease any remaining sections to make it super-abundant.
Spritz Perfume—On Your Hair
A few spritzes of this stunning scent (it's a true, complex fragrance, just like you’d wear on, say, your wrist, but formulated for hair) leaves behind the sexiest, most uplifting scent trail—and gorgeous shine. Miraculously, it lingers for hours.
