How To Create Fun Summer Hair Styles and My Week in a Nutshell

 | 29 Comments  | Blog, Fashion & Beauty


The highlight of the past week was when my friend Jesse German came over to give me a cut, colored my hair and showed me 2 really cute hairstyles for the summer. I was really excited for the faux bangs look, because sometimes you just want a change but you don’t feel like committing. Once you cut your banks, it’s done. If you don’t like it anymore, too bad, you have to wait until it grows out. In my case 2 years! This way you change it up as much as you want without having to do any permanent changes, and that’s fun to me. It’s just as exciting as learning the Faux Bob. Remember that? It’s so easy to make a short hair out of long. Thanks to Jesse of course…

    Hi Zuzka and WarriorZ,

    I have a question (didn’t find an answer on the blog): how (often) and when do you wash your hair with shampoo, especially the curly ones among you? I have long and curly hair, and i don’t want (nor have the time) to wash it every day after a workout. Also, i’m trying (successfully until now) to wash less often and only wiht non-harming, environment-friendly products, so now i’m washing them once/wk. Dry shampoo is not an option, as one should brush her hair afterwards, which is not possible with curly hair.. Any ideas or routines for long, curly and sweaty hair which doesn’t like to be shampooed every day?

    Thanks ladies,

      Hello Jennifer,

      I had thick, wurly long hair (between wavy and curly, mid-thigh length) and Zuzka’s workouts got it very sweaty, but mostly only the hair near my scalp was sweaty because I kept my hair in a bun during the workout. So, I would do a “scalp only” wash over the sink or tub, with the rest of my hair in a braid, held out of the way. I would then do my regular hair washing once or twice per week. That kept the length from becoming damaged from over-washing. Also, there were some days when I just didn’t have the time to mess with my hair after a workout. The sweat just dried and wasn’t noticeable even on my dark hair (but I always wore my hair up because I hate the feeling of hair touching my face, so I don’t know how it would look if it was down).

      I tried conditioner only washing, which works great for my daughter & typically gives good results for curly hair, but didn’t work for me due to my scalp not liking it. She does it with Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut conditioner, especially after swimming, with good results. She had gorgeous knee length hair (cut it to waist now but it is still thick and healthy).

      I learned hair care from a forum called The Long Hair Community. They have a large body of knowledge & you may consider reading there to get more ideas for your curly long hair.

    Zuzka, I love the braided style! That style works with a lot of braid types. I’ve done it with fishtail braids, twist braids, multi-strand rope braids, and 3, 4, and 5 stranded braids, and it always looks nice.

    If one has really long hair, instead of pulling the hair straight up and over, the braids can be crossed in the back and brought up and around the head, which gives a neater appearance in the back and has a full circle of braids look. This also allows really long braids to have the ends tucked in wherever they end up. The hair might need to be pinned in the back a bit to keep it in place and avoid bulging, though, if doing this method.
