Summer's here and, with it, we get the opportunity to put down our blow-dryers and let our locks dry naturally in the sun (if we want to). Do you prefer the sleek smooth finish of blow-dried long hair, or the tousled surfer vibe of air-dried hair? Vote here!
Smooth long hair
The hairstyle: sleek and smooth long hair is the ultimate in chic hairstyles, and looks perfectly at home whether for a business meeting or greeting on the red carpet.
Styling: A paddle brush is good for detangling hair without damage or static. When out and about, keep the anti-frizz and pro-shine Glow Stick by Tecni.ART in your purse for quick touch-ups.
What the editors say: Smooth, long hair is made for swishing! It may look simple, but can often be the key to an entire look.
The hairstyle: The happy, hippie surfer girl can be summed up in one look – long air-dried hair with a tousled texture to it.
Styling: While you do want the hair to look a little mussed, you don't want to completely lose control. Apply some Crêpage de Chignon hairspray by Wild Stylers to the lengths and ends for a deliberately matte and messy finish!
What the editors say: It's often a good idea to let your hair air-dry naturally as opposed to blow-drying, which can cause heat damage. Don't forget to apply a UV protecting spray when out in the sun – we love the Solar Sublime spray by Serie Expert.
What's your decision? Smooth and chic or tousled au naturel?
