Zendaya rocked a super cute short wig to the BET Awards and got some serious heat for her new (temporary) look! She handled the heat well and was confident in her look, tweeting funny faces while rocking the super cute short wig. We love this look and love that she has the confidence to rock it! After all, what fun is hair if we can't play around with it?!
The Tortoise Shell haircolor trend seems to have taken off and trumped your old fashioned Ombre! It has been seen most recently on some of our biggest hair inspirations in hollywood such as Jessica Alba, Khloe Kardashian, Gisele Bundchen, and Blake Lively. This hair color trend, although very similar technique to ombre, really mixes beautiful warm colors to come up with a completely sun kissed and sun faded look by blending multiple shades in the same color family to come up with the perfectly blended ombre look without making the ends appear completely washed out. WE LOVE THIS LOOK! What do you think of this new color trend?
Check out these natural remedies to promote healthy scalp and hair growth -- from your kitchen! We're a bit skeptical, but it definitely couldn't hurt to try!
1.) Coconut Milk Rinse: Due to it's high electrolyte and essential fat content, coconut milk is said to infuse the hair and scalp with many nutrients we lose during shampooing. And coconut smells pretty awesome, so this, I would definitely try! It's pretty simple - mix together your coconut milk from a fresh coconut, a squeeze of fresh lemon and any essential oils you would like to add and apply it generously to the hair and scalp. Let sit on hair for 3-4 hours in a shampoo cap while you do all of your usual housework!
2.) Our Favorite: pH Balancing Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse: Now this, we have tried and LOVE! Apple cider vinegar is the easiest of these treatments to do AND it delivers complete results, every time. Apple Cider Vinegar helps to restore the scalps natural pH and keep it in it's most healthy condition which in turn promotes hair growth. Apply a 1:2 diluted solution to your hair and scalp after shampooing in the shower. Leave on for 5-10 then rinse. Condition as usual.
3.) Juice Of a Fresh Onion: Now, this one, we aren't so sure about, however the reasons for doing it make sense. Onions have a high sulfur content, which helps to promote collagen formation and in turn, is said to help hair growth. How to use it? Cut or grate a fresh onion and use the juices of the onion to apply a treatment directly to your scalp. Leave on for 10-15 minutes then shampoo.

During the summer, we all tend to forget how important it is to protect our hair from the sun while we are busy vigorously applying sunscreen to our skin -- but, keep in mind, your hair IS part of you skin, and could be treated as such to maintain healthiness and of course, bright vibrant colors! So, in order to make summer hair a breeze for you, we've rounded up our favorite hair care tips for you again!
1.) Always use sun protecting products! Even if you aren't one to typically use a lot of hair products, we recommend picking up a light weight leave-in with UVA-UVB protection and spray generously from root to tip if you're going to be having heavy sun exposure. Not only will this protect the integrity of your hair but it will maintain your hair color without excessive sun fade!
2.) Take advantage of the radiant heat! Well, if you're just relaxing on the beach enjoying the sunshine, you might as well let your hair enjoy it too. Grab your favorite conditioner or masque, lather it on and throw your hair up into a messy bun. Let the heat from the sun help the conditioner penetrate your hair strands. This will guarantee soft, manageable post-beach hair!
3.) Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! The rule of thumb is, any extra measures that you take for your body in the summer - you should take for your hair, too. So, since you are always grabbing extra water to hydrate your body, it's important to take the extra time to make sure your hair is hydrated. Whether you are doing the deep conditioner treatment in the sun as recommended above, or if you're doing treatments in your shower -- it's extremely important to bump up your conditioning to a minimum of twice weekly and switch to a hydrating shampoo or conditioner.
4.) Protect your length from summer fade, in a cute way! If you're someone who spends a ton of time in the sun, it might be time to try a new style to wrap up your ends and protect your hair as much as possible from sun exposure without having to completely cover up your gorgeous locks. Our favorite suggestions? Braids, of course! This wraps the majority of your hair up securely while allowing you to look adorable at the same time!
5.) Follow up with your stylist for regular maintenance! This is MOST important in the summer. If you're the type of person -- as we all are -- to slack off on your regular trim appointments, summer is not the time to forget! While we are all running around enjoying the beautiful weather and our on-the-go lifestyles, it's very easy to go an entire summer without ANY salon maintenance if we let ourselves cancel just one appointment. Be vigilant in scheduling and reminding yourself to keep your appointments! Regular trims will help make all of this maintenance easier and help prevent excessive breakage!

We love the uplifting, colorful styles! What do you think?!
Here at StyleBell, we know that when it comes to curls -- the struggle is REAL. We also know that the summer only adds to this problem. This is why we've decided to round up our favorite summer hair tips for curls that are easy enough for everyone to do and we are sure that you will see a difference in your hair!
1.) Skip Harsh Towels! Scrunching your hair with towels roughs up your cuticle and causes curls to lay unequally leading to frizz and less bouncy curls. We recommend investing in a curl towel or using an old t-shirt to pat hair dry.
2.) Comb with Your Fingers. Skipping combs and brushes allows curls to start forming the second you get out of the shower. Using a light leave-in conditioner spray helps detangle hair with your fingers and allows curls to form naturally, beautifully, and as full and frizz-free as possible!
3.) Use Cream or Oil Based Products. We love cream and oil based products simply for their hydrating properties and in the summer heat, they tend to warm up as your hair does in the humidity and reactivate themselves, unlike drying foams or mousses.
4.) Skip Heavy Hairsprays. In the summer, heavy hold hair sprays have the same stiff and drying affect as mousses and foams. If you can't live without hairspray (which we recommend for summer curls to leave them loose, natural and beachy) then we recommend using a light hold hairspray and only use enough to keep fly-away's at bay. You'd be surprised how much your natural curls will hold up without it!
5.) AVOID Sea Salt Sprays. Although sea salt sprays have the tendency to make those ladies with straight or wavy hair achieve gorgeous beach waves without consequences, too much sea salt can wreak havoc on curly hair. Curly hair tends to be more fragile therefore making it less capable of handling the drying effects of sea salt on a daily basis. If, like me, you've already become addicted to this spray on product, try cutting the solution in half. Grab a cheap spray bottle and divide the contents of the product bottle in two then dilute it with water. This will give you the same benefits with MUCH less drying.
