A timeless classic which can be both casual and formal, dressed up or down, ideal for the variety hot summer days and nights bring!

If you have brave clients, ready to try out something new, there is no better hairdo to fit their fierce personality.

How to do it? – The sleeked back hairstyle is created by pushing the hair backward either by hand or with a comb.

NATULIQUE’s Flexible Hold Styling Gel, as well as the Medium Hold and Extreme Hold Hair Waxes are perfect to keep the hair into place and reach the fashionable result you desire!

For an extra dirty “beach look” check out with what unusual combination of NATULIQUE products you can give this classic a modern spin in our previous blog on Mixing & Matching.

Note that this hairstyle can be a success not only for male clients, but also for women ! Although it is often associated with an attractive masculine look, this sexy hairstyle can be transformed into a chic and feminine look.

Throughout time, legends and celebrities such as Elvis Presley, John Travolta, Michael Douglas, David Beckham, Scarlett Johansson and many more reenacted this classy, timeless look.

It’s no wonder that hairstylists still love it – it combines refinement and rebelliousness in the best way possible!

#2 Summer Beachy Waves

Effortless textures, for an endless summer. There is something special about the salty beach air, that makes us feel and look amazingly good – and our hair, truly radiant and natural!

Even though it may seem quite easy to achieve this perfect look, it’s not always a bed of roses. It depends on the client’s hair structure how well the rough curls are to be maintained.

For improved texture, the hair should be prepared with NATULIQUE’s Volume Shape Hair Mousse before styling, to add volume and hold, for increased manageability and defined curls!

Once the hair has been prepped, you can start curling it as carefree and unstructured as possible. Just wrap random sections of hair around the curling iron and hold them for 3-5 seconds – you can try doing that in different directions, to avoid uniformity!

Once the hair is all curled, make sure you open the waves with your fingers, while misting with hair spray. Don’t be afraid to leave the ends straight, for a more relaxed result!

NATULIQUE’s  Beach Wave Ocean Spray is a must have for this season. This hair spray is enriched with Certified Organic Seaweed, Aloe Vera and natural sea salt infusion, which helps creating full and bouncy waves, with an enhanced texture and extra volume.

After spraying it in the hair will look just like it naturally air dried after a day at the beach, we promise!

#3 Sun-kissed highlights

As the sun gradually and naturally lightens up our hair colours, summertime is the perfect time to obtain beautiful highlights!

However, clients might want to get this perfect look all year long, so why not create them right in your salon?

NATULIQUE’s Balance Sparkling Shine is an ammonia free, lauryl sulfate free, and parabens free professional permanent hair colour, perfect for creating soft highlights, instant illumination and an authentic sun-kissed effect that your clients will absolutely adore.

Even if you use a hand painting or foil technique, Balance Sparkling Shine helps you prep your clients’ hair for summer in no time!

#4 Funky Bob Style

There is nothing as chic as the bob haircut! If your clients want to try out something new and daring this summer, shorter hair may seem to be the perfect choice!

You can cut the classic bob haircut for any length and with your own modern twist on it, so your clients will feel they got a very unique yet trendy hairstyle and you can let your creativity run free.

You can never run out of ideas when it comes to bob haircuts! The longer bob aka the lob is mostly suitable for round-shaped faces, so we suggest to firstly make sure the hairstyle you’re creating fits your clients’ features.

As far as styling is concerned, you can opt either for a curly or slicked style.

Read on to get some inspiration on how to effortlessly add texture!

For a smooth and silky end-result, apply some drops of our Moroccan Oil on the hair strands before styling it with a round brush. It will smoothen split ends and frizz, and it’s extremely beneficial for dry or damaged hair.

Before blow drying or using the flat iron, make sure you apply the Heat Protector. It will protect the hair strands and increase shine, while allowing you to heat-style the clients’ hair without concerns!

Probably the most important aspect you should consider when styling a bob haircut is definition. If you haven’t tried NATULIQUE’s new Hygge Hair Spray Wax yet now’s the time to do so! Its lightweight formula will keep the hairstyle in place and add texture for a natural easy-going look.
