Beautiful Summer Hairstyles by Sebastian Professional Stylist Anthony Cole

Anthony Cole reveals uncontrived styles perfect for the summer season. 

Simplicity and functionality motivated Sebastian Professional lead international stylist Anthony Cole’s fresh photographic session, wherein he designed various braids and knots made for summer soirees and festival fetes. “I wanted to create twists that were beautiful but wearable,” says Cole. “They needed to look cool, but flatter each model’s unique features.”

  • Adorn Me

    For this style, Anthony Cole sought to create a braided look that acted as a kind of “headpiece.” To execute it, he crafted tight braids, then weaved an actual thread through each knot to ensure the plaits remained in place.

  • Space Cadet

    “I made the two space buns, then rope-braided them and fastened the ends,” explains Cole of this party-perfect ’do. “There’s a cool ‘z’ formation in the back of the head for an additional element of fun.”

  • Thread Babe

    Simplicity is sometimes best, and an unfussy cornrow with thread running through is both functional in maintaining the look and stylish in itself.
