Beauty Trends Heating up the Summer

Beauty Trends Heating Up the Summer 

If your hair and makeup could use a little summer switch up, look no further. Pack away your sweaters, and read on for the latest beauty trends in hair and makeup. Get ready to stun in the summer sun!

Octopus Cut

The Octopus Cut is the latest iteration of the shag cut (or if you’re a Friends fan: The Rachel). This versatile cut has a rounded top layer for volume and body, and then the back and sides of the hair drop down hugging the neckline (like tentacles, but not as gross). This is a no-muss, no-fuss cut that is great for summer. Bonus: it even looks great if you air dry!

Claw Clips and Barrettes

Ah, let us return to the 90’s, when we could quickly do a half-up style with one squeeze of a claw clip. Barrettes are back too – to add a little sparkle and shine. The trendy way to wear them is to use a few of them going down a long, low ponytail. Or you can use them to keep those bangs you are growing away from your face.

Silver and Gold

While gold highlights are always popular, this year we’re seeing a lot of silver highlights too. Many people decided to embrace their silver strands during the pandemic, and now it’s become popular among the younger set as well. Mixing silver and gold highlights give you a modern look that includes both warm and cool hues that will sparkle in the summer sun.

Euphoria Makeup

The popular TV show, Euphoria, is setting beauty trends left and right. Check out the floating eyeliner – often in neon colors, white or even red. Delight in the stick-on gemstones, tears (or stars) made of glitter, and patent leather looking lips. Do a search on Euphoria makeup to see the hottest trends and then get creative!

Playful Colors

While natural hair and makeup is always a popular look, this summer is all about experimenting with color. For hair, consider a bright pop of peek-a-boo color – like purple – on a layer of hair that is normally hidden. Or lighten up with an all-over pastel like pale pink or rose-gold. For makeup, anything goes – play with a rainbow palette of colors and put those neutrals away for a while. Summer is all about fun.
