Julien Farel's Tips to Stay Trendy This Summer

Summer will be here quicker than you can find last year's bikini at the bottom of your dresser, so it's time to start preparing for months of barbecues and pool days. Click through the slideshow below to learn what trends Julien Farel stylists think will be hotter than a rooftop picnic in July.

  • Natural Hair

    Summer calls for natural hair! Embrace your natural texture, use Julien Farel’s Restore as your shampoo, conditioner and treatment and let your hair air dry for gorgeous movement. Use Julien Farel’s Smooth Crème for any unwanted frizz.

  • Beachy Blonde

    Jasmine Raineri, a senior colorist, thinks that come summer, blonde is the only way to be.

    "Blondes have more fun!" she said. "This summer, it’s all about the sandy blonde look, it includes different shades of light butter to beige tones. The way a day on the beach gives you those natural shades of blondes. Balayage is the painting technique of “feathering” by adding thick to thin strokes of blonde, mixing in two to three shades of blondes."

  • Bold Lips

    Makeup Artist Marylisa Diaz has another idea: go all in on lips.

    She said, "Eyes are bare and lips are bold! For a refreshed look, lose the mascara but use a bold lip for a pop. If you’re not a bright lip kind of gal, focus on a subtle blush; we’re seeing blush also being used as matching eyeshadow across the runways!
