5 Braid Hairstyles to Try This Summer 2017

In the summer, it’s so much easier to throw your hair in a braid and not have to worry about the humidity taking it over. Put away the straightener and curling iron for now, and try out one of these braid hairstyles for the ultimate mermaid hair look this summer. Braid hairstyles are great because you can wear them to an extravagant event, at the office, girls night out, or a day outdoors. While you’re traveling this summer, or at your next music festival, rock one of these braided looks! Here are 5 braid hairstyles to try this summer.

The Fishtail Braid

The fishtail is a whole lot easier than it looks! Not to mention, this hairstyle makes you look like a gorgeous mermaid. Wear one large fishtail braid, or do a cute, small fishtail braid off to the side to spice up any look.

French Braids

We’re seeing French braids EVERYWHERE! This hairstyle is great for those early mornings in the gym, or out for happy hour. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry have been seen rocking this look lately. Mix it up and try half fishtail braids and half french braids!

The Dutch Braid

The Dutch braid is almost like a French braid, except you crisscross under while braiding. Wearing it down your back, off to the side, or into separate braids. We love these braid hairstyles because you can simply loosen the braid to give it the appearance of thicker, fuller hair.

Side Dutch Braid.

The Crown Braid

Are you ready to wear your crown, ladies? The crown braid is one of the ultimate boho-goddess hairstyles. This hairstyle can completely dress up any look, and it’s a whole lot easier than it looks!

Half-Up Braid Hairstyles

This season, we’re seeing tons of half up braid hairstyles: the Mohawk braid, mini Dutch braids, braids into buns, and the list goes on. The best part about half-up braid hairstyles is that you can wear them in a mix of tons of different ways, and they look chic and stylish every time.

If you want to try one of these braid hairstyles this summer, but aren’t sure if you can complete the look yourself, come into Dear Clark! We’ll help you transform your hair into any braid hairstyles you can dream of. BOOK AN APPOINTMENT | CALL: (214) 397-0700

5 Gorgeous Blonde Hair Color Shades to Try In 2017

Do Blondes Really Have More Fun? Let’s Find Out!

It seems that everywhere we look, we’re seeing the blonde hair trend blowing up! If you’ve always wondered if blondes really do have more fun, there’s no better time to find out than right now. We’ve gathered the top five gorgeous blonde hair color shades for every skin tone. There’s no better time to lighten up your look then spring and summer!

Platinum Blonde Hair

Last year we saw lots of platinum blonde hair looks. This year, the trend is continuing on with white hair or with more subtle versions of blonde. We love when the platinum blonde look is paired with a short haircut, giving you the healthiest-looking hair.

Bronde

Bronde – we love bronde! This may be 2017’s hottest hair trend. If you aren’t too familiar with “bronde” it’s the gorgeous medium between brown and blonde. Bronde is perfect for any skin tone because you can make it as blonde, or as brunette as you like – either way will give you a stunning, sun-kissed look.

Cool/Ashy Blonde

If you’re looking to rock cooler tones this summer, try an ashy blonde recently seen on celebs such as Rita Ora and Jennifer Lawrence. If you’re feeling daring, go for an extreme cool/ashy blonde color, and look like the ultimate ice queen.

Strawberry Blonde

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – strawberry blonde is SO in this season! Play up your blonde locks with a beautiful strawberry shade. You could even go as far as making your hair a more “rose gold shade,” which will be one of the hottest hair color trends this fall.

Golden Blonde

Be the real life Goldilocks with this blonde hair look! If you have more of an olive skin tone, and don’t think you could ever rock the blonde look, think again. Golden blonde hair offers warm shades or caramel and honey that can complement almost any skin tone. If you want to lighten up, but still don’t want to commit to blonde hair, ask your stylist to blend your natural color with a soft, golden blonde.

If you’re interested in lightening your look for this spring & summer, book an appointment with one of our stylists at Dear Clark, BOOK AN APPOINTMENT | CALL: (214) 397-0700
