Our biggest show hangover this 2022 has left us with crumbs of giddy heartfelt moments that reach the tickles of our scalp. Talking about the scalp, have you seen the amazing, and get it –attainable, hairstyles from the show?
Besides the love triangle that has gotten us pulling our hair strands out of a whirlwind of emotions, The Summer I Turned Pretty has served us different looks from clean cuts, party-ready hairstyles, and majestic curls.
Let’s cut to the chase and dissect the hairdos of our favorite characters from The Summer I Turned Pretty (TSITP)!
If it’s not the show's main star, Belly Conklin, who finally got the glow-up of the century! Showing up at the Debutante ball with a regal hairstyle and a matching pearl headband has had our summer boys turning their heads in her direction.
Achieving this regal tight low bun can make you look refined and classy, and it doesn’t take more than the Davines This is a Strong Hold Cream Gel: For Firm Polished Looks, P1,200, to help achieve it. This has a stronghold that can dry out quickly and define your strands, and because it’s a creamy gel, you can easily control its style in the direction you want.
For that extra firm hold, use the AVEDA Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray, P600, to keep your hair fixed despite the humid weather. With a calming aroma of essential oils, you’ll feel relaxed and maybe get your “That’s the Way I Loved You” dance of your lifetime.
It’s not summer without the mysterious fisher brother, Conrad, and his silky medium-length haircut. With that right side parting and styled bangs, it frames his face in an attention-grabbing way. No wonder Belly has been crushing on him for a decade!
If you want to look like the hot main character the girl falls for, try using the American Crew Cream Pomade 85g, P1,290, which tames frizz, adds moisture, and gives your hair that Conrad look. This defining hair pomade is perfect for defining your hair waves.
If you want to get a glimpse of class, sophistication, and elegance, then Shayla’s debut character is one to follow. Showing up to the debutante ball practice with her voluminous curly hair and deep red headband hat, she makes her entrance look dramatic and attention-grabbing.
Another character that made her debut in Cousins beach, Nicole, is the standard of chic and versatility. Rocking her afro curls confidently and styling them into braids leaves her looking like “that summer girl crush.”
From numerous braiding techniques to try, like micro braids, fishtails, french braids, etc., copying Nicole’s style could make use of the holy grail –Olaplex No.7: Bonding Oil, P2,300. It dramatically increases the shine of your hair and can be used effectively for styling. This will easily tame your curls and make braiding faster.
Not a fan of oils? Try the Davines DEDE Hair Mist: Delicate Leave-in Conditioner 250mL, P1,550, as a braid pep. This prevents the tightness in your scalp and easily untangles the locks of your hair.
Maybe you're going to the Deb Ball or visiting the Cousins Beach Country Club, but behind every summer story is a unique hairstyle that speaks about YOU and your character.
