    Maithal's thread got me thinking, do you guys style/color your hair completely differently when we're out for the summer as opposed to how you have your hair for work?

    I like to let my hair breathe in the summer, so I try not to flat iron it nearly as much. I may let it air dry when it's wet & just put gel in it. It's certainly hot enough. I may also put it in a bun more. It's definitely time to be a little crazy if you want to!

    I have put pink in my hair for the last few summers. I don't think I will this year, but I do love the look.

    I love the pink hair!

    I have curly hair, but I never straighten it. During the school year, I'm usually a little more careful about pinning back my hair to keep it out of my face and using a few products to keep my hair from acting all crazy. In the summer: all bets are off. Messy updos, headbands (which I don't wear to school), free-flowing hair--it's much nicer that way, and I'm also willing to leave the house with damp hair.

    My short, wash-and-wear hair is the same year 'round.

    Jem what do you use for the pink? Do you do it yourself?

    Jem-You look just like your icon! I love it pink.


    I always wear my hair the same.

    Well, with summers that are usually well into the 90s and quite humid, summer usually means ponytails, braids, pigtails, or anything else to get my thick hair off my neck! I do the same as Ms. I, though, and blow-dry/flat-iron it less.

    Thanks, guys! I have it done at the salon now. In college, I would do it myself. But I like the 'highlight' look-I like my blond to show through and I need a stylist to use the foils. If I do it myself, it's ALL pink.

    The only thing I do for a school day is blow dry my hair, but in the summer I don't often do that. I shower, tie it into the knot of a mess on top of my head, and be happy. :)

    I typically don't put a lot of products in my hair. I more or less go for the "beachy look". In the summer, I guess I probably wear my hair more up in ponytails or braids. Otherwise, I tend to wear it the same, down and in a messy curly mess. :)

    Since I moved to Okinawa, I find myself using my sunglasses as a headband every single day.

    I don't blow dry mine in the summer - ever. I have pretty curly hair so I do the beachy natural look.

    I am thinking about getting some hair tinsel this year. I think some gold in my hair would look cool in the sun at the beach.

    My hair is easy but always looks great..I wear a lighter blond in the summer, but my style is essentially classic and carefree year round.

    I have a tendency to grow my beard out during the summer months. Does that count? ;)

    I've always changed styles and/or colors often, but it never had anything to do with summer vs. work.

    In the summer, I try not to use my blow dryer or flat iron; just wash & wear; and wear in a ponytail.
