Beat the heat: cool ways to add wave or curl to your hair

Using a curling iron or straightener in the summer can feel like torture, especially when it's already scorching hot outside. How can you style your hair without breaking a sweat? Keep scrolling!

Braids

Wash your hair just before going to sleep. Apply a styling product like Bouncy and Tender Dual Stylers from L'Oréal Professionnel and then braid it. If you want well-defined waves, create a few mini braids; for looser waves, bring all of your hair into one big loose braid. In the morning take the braid(s) out, and smooth some Mythic Oil Original Oil over your locks. Your mane will positively shine in the sunlight!

Mini buns

90s mini buns are still popular, and perfect to wear during the day while you're out shopping or at the beach. Wash your hair and then apply 1 to 2 hazelnut-size drops of Liss Control from Tecni.ART by L'Oréal Professionnel. Twist hair into mini buns all over your head, securing them with bobby pins. By the time you're ready to go out at night, just remove the bobby pins – your locks will be wavy and gorgeous, no heat required! If you think that the waves or curls are too tight, lightly brush them out.
