Friday Favourites: Summer Hairstyles

Summer Hairstyles - Retro Flame - Erika Fox

Happy Friday everyone! For the longest time, I’ve been wanting to share more hair posts here on Retro Flame and I’m so happy to be finally doing one now. A lot of you ask me about how I do my hair, what products I use, etc. so throughout the Summer, I’m going to be doing very regular hair posts & tutorials. Exciting! During the week, I posted the prettiest hair photo on my Instagram (@retroflame) and told you all that I’m promising myself that I’m going to be a little more adventurous with my Summer Hairstyles. You’ve probably guessed by now that my signature/go-to hairstyle is a loose-wave style (like above) and I very rarely change from this. As I’ve never died my hair before, my hair is quite strong and therefore holds a wave for ages -so this hairstyle is just so handy when I’m on the go. But I’m hoping to have a little more time this Summer and so I’m determined to try out some new looks. I’ve put together a look at 8 different Summer hairstyles which would be perfect for Weddings, Events, Debs, Holidays or even just a regular night-out…

8. Hair Jewels

…..and now all I have to do is figure out how to do these! I think my favourites are definitely the plait up-do’s and messy ponytails. So simple but so pretty. I also absolutely love the styles with the floral and jewel accessories. After I found these images, I went on the search for some nice hair accessories and found this beautiful pearl headchain and these daisy hair clips. See the rest of my finds below (you can scroll through them by clicking the arrow on the right)…

In the next while, I’m going to be doing a full post all about the hair products & brands I swear by. I really do believe that it all comes down to the products you use. Below is a quick look at some of the products I use at the moment…

If any of you know of any blogs/youtube channels that do good hair tutorials, I’d absolutely love to know? Oh and if you see that I’m not living up to this promise of trying out new hairstyles…please give out to me!! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Stylishly Yours,

    I love all types of braids for the summer! They looks really put together but keep your hair from making you overheat. Can’t wait to see which ones you try out! xx
