Summer Cuts for Every Type of Dallas Girl
And the killer salons to get them
With temperatures starting to hang out in the 80s (already), it’s time to abandon winter completely and take on a summer hairstyle. Whether you go for a major chop, subtle reshaping or whole new style, here are five fabulous dos to help each kind of Dallas girl cut loose for the summer.
The Blunt Bob
For: The Boss Lady
Let’s face it, short hair can be intimidating. So this look takes some lady-balls, but you’ve got ’em because you’re used to running the ship. A fierce shoulder-length cut sans layers--like Sarah Paulson's--is not only striking for your image but also keeps your shoulders cool.
THE LONG BOB (AKA THE LOB)
For: The Busy Bee
We get it: You don’t have time to style your hair every day, so you need a backup plan. Emma Stone’s cut is perfect if you’re craving a change but require the ponytail fail-safe.
Where to go: Marshall Hatley at Tangerine Salon gives fierce cuts and even better blowouts, so you’ll get the most out of your lob.
For: The New Mama
Just when you thought your lob dreams were crushed because you have zero time to pay attention to your hair, this style swooped in to save you. Often referred to as the wob (wavy lob), a cut like Kristen Bell’s ignores the rules and uses subtle waves (natural or not) and choppy layers to create magic movement on your head.
Where to go: ERA Salon is the go-to spot for perfecting your pouf when you need a little me-time.
Loose, Long Waves
For: The Festival Hippie
When you say “summer,” we say “festival chic.” Have your hairdresser part your mane down the middle before snipping. Once those split ends are taken care of, sleep in French braids and dream of Coachella because you will be rockin’ Blake Lively-esque waves in the morning, honey.
Where to go: Head to Hair by Charlie and get Charlie Price to hook your locks up with highlights that he refers to as zero-maintenance hair color (aka the most delicious color that lasts for months on end).
For: The Haute Hipster
You know, when you want to look like you rolled out of bed perfectly grungy a la Allison Williams, but secretly spent a good half hour getting each hair aligned just right.
Where to go: At L.A.R.C. Salon, the stylists definitely have the right amount of edge to accomplish the look.
