Sizzling Summer Hair
Summer brings a wild vibe that makes us want to put the top down and let our locks dance in the breeze, whether we’re driving along the river or making our way to the Pacific shore. It’s a time to have fun, let go and take it a little easy. And all the while still look fantastic.
Unleash the wild child inside and let your untamed natural curl have its day. Going native with your curls doesn’t mean crunchy kinks or an unruly backcombed look — remember 80s frizz? Keeping it modern is a must with fluff and shine.
To stave off summer heat and humidity, you need to hydrate both inside and out. Water will help your hair stay healthier since the hair shaft is comprised of about 25% water, so drink up. H2O is also great for your skin.
Fighting off frizz, especially in curly hair, doesn’t have to phase you. Paramount carries a wide array of products to add shape and definition to your curls without any of the crunch.
Untamed curls don’t have to mean unruly. Kérastase’s Discipline Curly Hair Set is specifically designed for wild curls. Oléo-Curl Hair Cream promotes relaxed, frizz-free curls with hydration and shine, and enhances curl shape and definition without rigidity.

Want to can keep wisps out of your face or just add a little elegance on a hot day? Try crystal or pearl bobby pins. Need a more playful touch? Bobby pins in a variety of bright summer hues with and without florals amp up the cute factor to 10!
Slip on a headband for a full off-the-face or hint of bangs look. Whether it’s active you’re going for, a nod to retro chic or romantic, you can’t go wrong.
Remember to keep your accessories clean by hand-washing headbands and rinsing residue from barrettes to keep them in tip-top condition and kind to your hair.
And tighter isn’t better with headbands. A tight headband can bring about headaches and breakage along the hairline.
Blonde hues call during the summer months. But do you want your blonde to scream, talk, or whisper? There are many hues of blonde to choose from so a good question to ask is … What is your style intention?
Do you want to turn heads and feel a bit edgy with a bold iced-out change? Or are you OK blending in with more of a pedestrian blonde tone, something more buttery and safe? There’s no right or wrong, it solely depends on your personal style.
Though summer traditions may lean toward blonde and bright, brunette tones from inky black to coppery hues, turn just as many heads. Paramount colorists can help you choose the right shade for your skin tone and lifestyle.
