Summer Hair Styles + #MotionsStyleBar In NOLA

It is officially the summer!  Even though its already been unbearable most days in Atlanta so far, I am prepping for a very hot and humid summer. This leads me to summer hair! The braids are out, my hair free flowing and I am back to be able to do all of the styles I have been looking forward to.

Flexirod Roller Sets

I haven’t quite mastered these yet but I love flexirod roller sets. They create cute curls that last awhile. It reminds me of back in the day when I was relaxed and got roller sets. They got cuter and cuter as the days went on. Take a product like Motions Foaming Wrap Lotion and use whatever sized flexirods you are looking for. (I love the Gray and the orange sized flexirods) The smaller the rod, the tighter the curl. The tighter the curl, the better longevity the style has too!!


It’s hot!! Sometimes I want my hair OFF my face and neck! Updos are perfect and totally retro! You can take an old wash & go or twist out, take a pomade to gently mold your hair up and make it shiny! Get a ton of bobby pins to keep your hair secure. You don’t want it to fall down when you are dancing the night away! There is nothing worse than your updo falling down while you are out! Ugghh! It’s such a hassle trying to get back up with a mirror compact!

French Braids


Yes, you may think this is old school, but some of my favorite curly haired celebrities make this hot!!! You can take freshly washed hair, part your hair down the middle, and create two French braids towards the perimeter of your head. Overlap the braids in the back and secure with a bobby pin! Nice simple, cute bohemian summer hairstyle. (Don’t mind my edges- I should’ve used a pomade to slick them down)

To top off the summer solstice and some cute hair styles I am looking forward to rockin’, I’m headed to New Orleans for the annual music festival soon! You know what that means??? Parties!!!
