Choices of Hair Styles for Summer

This summer, go cool! This summer, cut short. Go easy. Go stylish. With the heat of the summer fast approaching, one wants to make sure that she or he has a good and comfortable hair style that they can maintain through the long, sunny and sweaty months of the blazing summer.  Summer time is a time of year, in India, where women like to dress minimal and where there is no scope for very long hair styles or rather, there is little scope to walk around sporting or opening hair that is long and styled. Yet, there are many a hair style and cut that are comfortable and wonderful for the months of summer and these are styles that are to aid comfort and feasibility of wear of hair over summer!

Hair Styles for SummerThe choices of hairstyles for summer should be styles that are suit your personality, that being number one and that are comfortable! Choosing a hairstyle that does not suit your personality, face structure or is un comfortable is a completely bad choice of hairstyle and will not look sporty or nice for summer or any other time as it is not either of the former stated attributes.

Choices for summer could be short and fun haircuts or styles. Haircuts like the Pixie cut which leans towards short hair, or short cropped or tiny layered hair that is short is also wonderfully well-manageable for summer. Choices for summer to go with the above mentioned hairdo’s or haircuts is to try and be as hydrated as possible.

Drink up- Drink water, drink fruit juices, drink coconut water out of the shell, feeling like a real beach body and if you tan, do not forget to carry a sun block with proper uv rays filters and a good hat (cool look for summer- big hats with or without bows and accessorizing)

Choices of Hair Styles For Winter

Winter comes and it brings with it openness for hair style choices, there can be so many one can choose from. Winter time is the best time to grow out your hair, to wear your hair (layered, razored or not) open and loose, and it is an amazing time to wear your hair in different styles. Winter in India is when the women do not hesistate a minute before opening their tresses of hair, as this is a time of year when there is no concern about humidity factors or heat elements or the need to tie up and bun up hair as there is less exposure to sunlight and the sun shines milder than in summer. This makes it feasible to try out many a cut freely over winter time.

Hair Styles For WinterWinter hairdo’s are hairstyles that are good for winter. For instance, a hairstyle that is long, layered and left open, with the presence of a pretty looking hair clip on the side of the hair (with or without a few bangs to add effect) is a great look for winter.

Winter time brings with it the possibility to wear a nice hooded top, which covers your head, which can previously be tied up in a pony-tail or bun.

Pony tails with a nice hair band over jeans is a great option to go out for a casual lunch or coffee. Sporting a jacket look with a hair band over slightly blow dried hair (make sure that you use a protective spray before heat treatment to your hair-any kind of heat treatment, may it be a hair spray or a hair serum- this helps to protect hair from breakage and it helps to maintain a good texture of hair as well, which tends to dry up in winter months).

Oiling Hair – Recommended or Not

Oiling hair is an age old recommendation, but as time went by, the recommendation took a deviation. Today, there are a percentage of hair experts who believe hat oiling is good for hair and there are a percentage of hair experts who believe that oiling is not necessary for hair.

Oiling Hair

My personal suggestion is that it is alright to use hair oil (trusted companies like Marico have the eternally popular Parachute range of coconut oil which is superb) once in a while, say once every fortnight or once every two-to-three weeks. It is also a suggestion to not leave oil on overnight as this could make the roots of your hair oily or over absorbent. Keep oil on for an hour or two, at most and then wash it off with a good shampoo that is effective. This time, use less conditioner as oil itself acts as a good, conditioning agent and softener. When you use oil, the hair gets greasy, and to remove the oil, you would use extra shampoo and this, at times, can rob your hair of its essential natural oils/secretions.

This time, use less conditioner as oil itself acts as a good, conditioning agent and softener. When you use oil, the hair gets greasy, and to remove the oil, you would use extra shampoo and this, at times, can rob your hair of its essential natural oils/secretions.

So, there is a conflict of interests when it comes to whether or not oil is recommended in today’s day and age. For those who want a definitive advice, read the above and indulge in oil sessions, but only once in a way! This way, you will be providing your hair with the needed supplement or nourishment, as one may like to refer to it as, and hair does not get robbed excessively of secretions because oil is applied sparsely as opposed to frequently.

Criterion for a Good Hairstyle

What is the main criterion for a good hair style / hair do?

As easygoing is a hairstyle, the better is the comfort. And the better the comfort, the higher it gets on the list of good hair styles or hair do’s. The main criterion for a good hair style, as you may have already guessed by now, is comfort. If a hair style is not comfortable, then no matter how many products or blow-dry’s one gets done to keep to being stylish, the effect will be worn out easily. If a person is not comfortable with her hair style, then it is not a good or approved one. The comfort also arises from having an easy as well as a maintainable hair do or hair style. The comfort helps a woman to be in sync with her haircut.

Criterion for a Good Hairstyle Besides comfort, a good hairstyle is definitely one that suits a person’s face and a person’s personality. A round face with a short crop of a haircut will look rounder and this is not rocket science, this is common knowledge regarding haircuts.

The above stated qualifies as being two very important criteria for a good hair cut or a good hair style. Hair stylists today realize the innate need and importance to work towards giving a person a hair cut that is cool, suave and comfortable. Fashion meters keep changing but comfort is a quaint-essential in any hair situation.

Style that is comfortable is what is the most important; style that is un-comfortable defeats the very purpose of having any kind of stylish haircut or hairdo.

Hair Accessories

Hair accessories are a boon to hair! Having a bad hair day? Don’t style, just accessorize! If your hair looks out of place, put on a few hair pins and there you go, problem solved! Similarly, hair bands that are big will hold your hair in place and give a sporty look to you.

A hair pin that is studded with stones will look wonderful when placed on the side of your head or even near the side of your forehead (just around there); this matched or teamed up with a lovely dress or pants and a formal top will make a wonderful ensemble. You ladies are dressed to the tee, maybe also neat for the derby that is a common phenomenon at summer time.

Other hair accessories that involve pins to put inside braids are a pretty sight. Hair pins look dainty and lady like and take feminine to a different level. If one is dressed in jeans and a tee, then one may think of wearing a nice cap (in summer) or a nice srunchie for the tied up hair look that is eternally popular on women of all ages. Yes, the height of the tied up hair differs from age to age. An older woman (above age 60) may be more well-suited with a lower tied pony-tail, whilst women who are younger can be casual by tying up long ponytails.

Hair accessorizing is a definite and a sure boon, making hair that is dull look vibrant, hair that is un-ruly look in place and far more!!!

Types of Hair do’s and Hair Styles

Over centuries, there have been so many hair do’s, hair styles and haircuts that have come in vogue and gone out of vogue (the word vogue refers to something that is considered to be ‘in fashion’ or ‘in style’) and styles regarding hair that have kept changing over time, and few which kept getting variations, that today, it’s safe to say that there have been hundreds and thousands of hairdo’s that have taken precedence at different times/ages.


The most generally sought after hairdo’s or hairstyles are the below listed. They qualify as styles that are most often taken to. They also qualify as styles and dos that are sported by people for comfort as well as to keep up with the fashion meter scale:

  • Layered hair cut/hair style. Any length of hair, when cut with layers is a good option for a hair style. Layers add refinement and style to a haircut.
  • Bangs and razor cut hair are a new age hairdo or a hairstyle. Bangs allow the forehead to be covered when one wishes, and can be worn on the side with hair-pins/clips when desired.
  • Razor sharp cut takes away the thickness of hair, making it look light and flow around the face.
  • Short hair can be worn in recent times- shaggily, in recent and previous times (with a few variations done of recent)- short cropped or bob hair cut/style. The variations of recent times to a bob hair-cut is the possible addition of a stylish half-fringe or few strands of hair, cut-together as bangs. Otherwise the bob-hair look is a common one and is a roundish haircut which is up till the ears.
  • Pony-tailed hair or tied up hair is a very classic look to sport and is one that portrays a look that is neat and semi-formal.
  • Hair do’s that involve back-combing is a recent and a very popularized trend to wear on or sport. The key is to comb your hair from behind the strands of hair in front, giving the hair a big or a mega look, and tying the hair up from behind. This look is super cool and resembles a true originated rock star look!
  • The other hairdo that is a good one for the summer months approaching is to bunch up hair in a bun or a hairclip that is binding, making hair comfortable and giving it a tied together feel.

Hair Style Predictions for 2010

Hair styles can change and differ as per a person’s choice, mood or most importantly depending on what suits the person. There are some predictions for hair styles for the year 2010 and they are as shown below:

Hair Style Predictions

1. The Pixie cut is predicted to be an in-cut or an in-style (meaning a fashionable and trendy cut or style) in the year 2010. A Pixie cut is a haircut for women; which generally means the hair at the sides and the back would be cut short and the top would be long or slightly layered.

2. Cute haircuts and short hair do’s are going to be popular in the year 2010. With the likes of singer Rihaana (one of the biggest music iconic figures Internationally) going experimental with her hair, at times with a Pixie cut and at times with a short hair do at times; and with Indian actor (actress) Priyanka Chopra chopping off her hair to promote her recent film, Pyaar Impossible; making her hair popular, which is more than one can say for the movie’s performance at the box office.

3. While some think that diverse haircuts will be in, a personal prediction form this website for 2010 is that though diversity in hairstyles is a good thing and a very safe assumption for recent times, with people being comfortable with experimentation with their hair, there is going to be the layered hair variations that are going to be top in the list of most popular trends for 2010.

4. Highlights for hair is going to be as popular as it has been in the last few years.. The concept of highlights just on few strands of hair, or even dark or funky shades of colour for highlights is going to be visible as a trend of popularity for 2010.

These are some of the hairstyle predictions that are predicted to be apparent and an integral part of the year 2010 in it’s fashionable hair scenario!
