Now that the weather is hot and humid, women everywhere are tossing their heat-styling tools and opting for the usual ponytail, just to beat the heat. Here are some new hair trends to try this summer – so you can look hot – not just feel hot.
Platinum Highlights: Create the ultimate sun-kissed highlights without ever visiting a salon this summer. Simply clip-in extensions like the Dancing with the Stars Starlights Extensions ($49: ULTA.com) in a sun-kissed hair shade (such as Swedish Blonde) and in an instant you have non-committal highlights.

Ballerina Bun: Instead of tying hair up into another boring ponytail, opt for a chic knotted ballerina bun instead. Simply wrap hair into a low bun, securing with bobby pins to keep hair in place. Add volume to the bun by attaching the Dancing with the Stars Glamarama Extensions ($20: ULTA.com) to complete this look.

Braids: The braid has managed to stick around for another season and we know why! It’s easier than ever to create this trend-worthy style at home –without a stylist. Wearing hair up or down, simply incorporate the Dancing with the Stars Bellissima Braid Band ($10: ULTA.com) into any look.
