We caught up with four of the Philly area’s top stylists for tips on how to beat the heat and give your locks a lot of love this summer.
"For an easy, classic summer trend, a pixie cut is a great choice. For a more classic look, think Mia Farrow or Audrey Hepburn, or for a modern update, channel Katy Perry or Ruth Negga. It’s a versatile cut that can be styled in various ways with ease." —Alexey Kats, owner & creative director at Architeqt Salons
"I love using braids as an accent in summer hair! It's not easy for many of us to style French or Dutch braids on ourselves, but classic braids and fishtails are much easier to achieve when you have to use your own two hands. They can be added in addition to any style of hair to amp up a day on the beach, a summer concert, or just a night out with friends!" —Amanda D'Andrea, owner & stylist at Amanda D'Andrea Hair
"Lived-in hair color is created by color melting. It starts with a dark root and amplifies it with both a combination of balayage (on the ends of your hair) and baby lights (fine highlights at the root) to create a slight dimension. Little to no maintenance is required, and clients can wait up to six months for their next visit." —Edmondo Blando, owner of Salon Vanity
"Summer color from Kaaral of Italy is loud and makes the ultimate statement! Medium-length hair with a strong personality or cuts that highlight shape and texture, are perfect for those who love to dare." —Caitlin Cerny, creative director at Salon Ziza
