Written by: Erica Hungerford During the hottest days of the summer the last thing any of us want to do is spend more time than necessary under the hot air of a blow dryer. In all honesty, I often wonder why bother when it seems the second your freshly blow dried hair exits the comfortable confines of an air-conditioned building it instantly begins to curl and fluff in the sticky humidity. This seems to be one of the beauty curses of summer. Any attempt to beautify ourselves on a hot summer day is hindered by the unavoidable sweat and humidity. It’s a constant battle between beauty and the heat… But here are few tricks to beat the heat this summer… Sometimes melty makeup can give you raccoon eyes by midday. Waterproof eyeliner and mascara can take care of that. Urban Decay 24/7 comes in a variety of rich colors that will last all day. A thin crisp cat eye line won’t appear too heavy and looks classic with a flowy summer dress. To make your eyes pop, apply some waterproof mascara as well, like MAC’s Extended Lash Play. Just make sure you wash off all of it with makeup remove before bed. http://www.serafinosays.com/2012/06/20/how-to-beat-summer-heat/

Want a frizz-free hairstyle that doesn’t require heat? Before bed, take freshly washed hair and spray it with a de-frizzing serum and a little leave-in conditioner. Part hair down the middle and use a boar brush to straighten out the curls before twisting both sections of hair into two small buns and securing with a scrunchy. The tightness will keep strands of hair straight as you sleep. Cover your hair with a silk scarf to avoid pillow-rub frizz. In the morning, release the buns and use a wide-tooth comb to separate the waves. Use a blow dryer on the cool setting if hair is not completely dry. Now you have loose, frizz-free waves for the day!

One simple trick for staying cool… keep your hair off your neck. Of course, that doesn’t mean do the same boring ponytail everyday, it’s actually a great opportunity to try out new up-dos and hair accessories. Keep your bangs off your forehead by pinning them back with four red or blue bobby pins in a row for a cute retro look. Dress a boring messy bun up with a flower pin so it looks like you are about to head off for vacation. Have a vintage scarf lying around? Twist it into a headband, wrap it around your head, and tie it on the side. It will add color to any outfit and keep your frizz and flyways down.
