Quick Beauty Fixes: Summer Hair Edition!

June 26, 2013  |  BEAUTY  |  , , , , , , , , , , , ,  |  Comments Off on Quick Beauty Fixes: Summer Hair Edition!

Two things we really love about summer: the warm sunny temps and cute sundresses and shorts. Two things we hate about the summer: what the sun does to our colored hair and constant shaving and waxing to be able to rock our fav summer get-up. Luckily beauty guru Stacy Cox came through with some tips to eliminate these two big summer bummers.


First, to protect that beautiful, vibrant hair (that you just colored) from sun, water, and heat, Stacy calls on Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Color Protect Spray. “It’s a lightweight, leave-in conditioner that helps preserve and protect your color through the summer and all year long,” says Stacy. We love Vidal Sassoon’s Repair Finish Spray to combat the heat and humidity. Both just under $5 a pop!


For sexy smooth legs, Stacy says to get Sally Hansen Ouch-Relief Wax Strip Kit on your radar! The kit’s pre-wax wipes are pre-treated with benzocaine to reduce pain while waxing (“no pain no gain” needeth not apply here!). And we love how it lasts up to 8 weeks! Grab the whole kit for just $9.99 at drugstores. Voila-hair problems solved!

We got what you need to beat the heat this summer (and look super stylish while doing it!). Bicoastal beauty editor, Ning Chao shared with us a page out of her summer survival guide. Here are two of Ning’s fab finds to keep us cool!


Starbucks Bottled Iced Coffee (hitting your local Starbucks, grocery, convenient and drug stores just in time for summer) is not only delicious but a perfect grab-and-go boost to get through the dog days of summer and keep cool.

It comes in three flavors: Coffee and Milk, Vanilla, and Low Calorie Coffee and Milk (our fav for just 50 calories). At only $1.99 a bottle, we can’t find an iced coffee cheaper!

And the go-to hair style for the summer is the bun! Not only does it look sleek but it also keeps you cool. Ning says to get the perfect summer bun try Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin. We are WOWed by these two pins that do the work of 20 bobby pins!
