Hot weather hair can sometimes be a challenge, but with so many celeb-inspired styles out there, you can rock any look this summer by following these expert tips.

“I love doing ponytails on LaLa because she’s one of the few that can wear a ponytail and feel confident and sexy. But sometimes the same ponytail can get boring — we wanted to add a little something to spice it up this time. So we collaborated on a piece of “hair jewelry”.

Sarah Hyland‘s gorgeous look is just like the crown braid on the menu at Dream Dry, a blow dry bar in New York and Chicago. Here’s how to get a similar look at home from lead stylist Sonia David:
“Bianca is the ultimate crown braid, that goes from day to night. Easily achieve this look by separating your hair into two parts. Create a braid on each side and secure them in place with hair ties. Wrap one braid around the front of your crown securing in place with bobby pins. Then, wrap the second braids in the opposite direction securing with bobby pins as well. Finish your look by gently separating pieces of the braid for a relaxed, bohemian chic vibe.”

To keep your hair healthy in the summer sun, éprouvage Global Stylist Anna Lyles recommends wearing a hat. “Protect your scalp from harsh UV rays by covering up. Breathable hat materials are ideal to keep your scalp dry and happy.” Also, “Drink lots of water — maintain optimum scalp health by keeping your body hydrated from the inside out.”
Anna continues: “Don’t be rough on knots and tangles from a day at the beach — use a leave-in conditioner such as éprouvage Replenishing Leave-In Conditioner and wide-toothed comb to gently detangle hair.”
