Five Atlanta salons tell us the best ways to re-do your hair for ease and beauty this season.
Salon Skanda says: Variations of the bob are all the rage this season, thanks to their ease and versatility. If you are running out the door, you can simply tie it back or put in some Redken Curvaceous Waveahead Mousse to bring out wave and control frizz. However you wear it, this hairstyle gives you the option of looking great with little effort.
Sunny’s Hair recommends: Extensions are a fun way to flirt with longer tresses without damaging your hair or committing to the upkeep, because you can easily sweep your long hair into a low-slung bun. This low maintenance style can work for day or night and is easy to do. Not only does it keep hair out of your face and off your neck during the warm summer months, but it also works with wet or dry hair, letting you go from the pool to dinner with friends and still look chic.
Richie Arpino Salon suggests: Transform the basic bob to a more disheveled, layered look that is a carefree style for the summer. Layers give your hair some volume for the humid Atlanta days that would deflate other styles. You can even add some caramel and warm auburn colors to enhance the cut and keep you looking cool all summer long.
Van Michael Salon says: Summer is all about being sporty and easy, and nothing is easier than a short wash-and-go haircut. In the summer, long tresses can make you hot—and not in the good way. Instead, try short hair, which is a great natural air conditioner for the body! You can also run your hands through it, shake it around, and still look great. This short haircut is graduated to accent the head shape and jaw line, and the top is layered to be flexible so it can move side to side.

Carter Barnes on Paces suggests: Push the boundaries this summer by going short—and make sure that it’s short enough, because medium short is not eye catching and can look dowdy or matronly. Add varied degrees of layering, unstructured wispy bangs, or change things up with an off-center part to make your summer style simple and sexy.
