Four Ultimate Summer Hair Trends We’re loving right now

Summer hair is here! Here are the summer hair trends we’re loving right now PLUS tips to #GetTheLook with our award-winning organic hair care products.


Curly hair with barrettes

Up The Ante with Accessories

Accessories are making a summer hair splash, especially in multiples. We love this summer hair trend because it’s applicable to any hair texture. Even better, you don’t need rockstar hair stylist skills to pull it off!

Get The Look: Use barrettes, clips and pins to draw focus to the hair and add hold and structure to braids, updos and pull backs. To style these natural curls, Innersense Organic Beauty educator Loni LaFinier used I Create Hold, I Create Lift and I Create Finish.

Long, shaggy hair

Summer Hair With Tempting Modern Texture

The “modern shag” is the summer hair of the season! Don’t believe us? Search #shag on Instagram and you’ll find more than 171,000 posts. This touchable summer hair trend works best with a little natural texture. So those with curly hair and wavy hair will love the movement this cut provides.

Get The Look: Opt for organic hair care styling products that tame frizz but don’t restrict movement of the hair, like Inner Peace Whipped Creme Texturizer and I Create Lift Volumizing Foam. This mermaid hair shag by Tiffany Faircloth at Edo Salon and Gallery in San Francisco is one of our favorite examples of the modern shag haircut. Add a touch of light, airy hold with I Create Waves Salt Spray.

Messy braid

The Lazy Day Messy Braid

Your days are carefree and fun, and in summer, hair should reflect it. Also, the messy braid is perfect for dirty or slept in hair when you don’t have a second to spare. At Volume Salon in Austin, Texas, Carly Elizabeth nails the messy braid in three minutes flat.

Get The Look: Messy braids and buns work best with second and third day hair. If you don’t have second day hair, fake it with Refresh Dry Shampoo before braiding. Adding dry shampoo will add grip and grit to hold bobby pins and bands. After braiding, randomly “pull out” braid sections throughout the tail to create lived in texture. Finish off flyaways with Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioner or I Create Finish Finishing Spray on a spoolie. Then comb through where needed for instant summer hair!

Curly short hair

Baby Bang Out Summer Hair

Julia Patton at Edo Salon in San Francisco, California gives us all the organic hair care feels with two of our favorite summer hair trends, baby bangs and the curly bob. Proving bangs aren’t just for straight hair, Julia secured this style with both I Create Volume and I Create Hold to tame her natural curls and add structure.

Get The Look: Bangs are tricky in summer humidity, so opt for organic hair care products that deliver weightless hold, like I Create Lift and I Create Finish for finer textures of hair. Do you have curly/thicker hair? Then I Create Volume and I Create Hold will be perfect for you.
