GET THE LOOK To subtly brighten pieces of hair around your face, try L'Oreal's new 10-minute Excellence To-Go kit for easy at-home lightening, or ask your colorist for delicate highlights around your face. Focus on the midshaft down for a sun-kissed look, says L.A. stylist Adir Abergel.

  • GET THE LOOK Make your bangs more versatile this summer by growing them out a bit: "This way you can push them off to the side or pin them off of the face," says hairstylist Patrick Melville, owner of the Patrick Melville Salon and Spa in New York. Before you blow dry, prep hair with a styling aid to give them a little hold and flexibility. Aim the nozzle of your blow-dryer down and away from your face, and mist fringe with hairspray to keep it in place.

GET THE LOOK First, enhance your hair's natural wave by gently scrunching while blow-drying with a diffuser. Then "grab a small section of hair-using your fingers, not a brush!-from the middle of one brow to the other, securing it with a small hair clip or hair pins," says hairstylist Jerome Lordet from the Pierre Michel Salon. "Make sure to loosely clip it back to give it slight height in the front," he adds.
