Summer’s intense humidity can really play a number on your hair. One minute it’s shiny and straight - the next minute it resembles a Brillo pad on steroids. BOOM! It’s frizzed out to the size of a cotton candy ball. (Think Cameron Diaz in “Being John Malkovich”)

Celebrity Stylist Ward Stegerhoek, who works with clients such as Rebecca Romijn, Eliza Dushku and Ashley Judd recommends the following products for frizz-free, perfectly tamed Summer tresses.

SLEEK AND STRAIGHT:

MEDIUM TO THICK HAIR
Ward recommends Living Proof Straight Making No Frizz Styling Cream for medium to thick hair. Developed by MIT scientists, No Frizz contains the first new frizz-taming technology in over 30 years. “The idea behind it is that you create an invisible, super lightweight coating on each strand of hair evenly. The cream formula provides optimum frizz-reduction, as well as added conditioning benefits, yet doesn’t leave hair feeling greasy or heavy.”

HOW TO GET THE LOOK:
-Apply at least a quarter-sized dollop of Straight Making No Frizz Styling Cream evenly from roots to ends, more for longer hair. (Make sure your hair is fully saturated with the product.)
-Comb through and style with a blow dryer and round brush.
-Flat iron for longer lasting results.

SLEEK AND STRAIGHT:

THIN HAIR
Ward recommends Fekkai Marine Summer Hair Beachcomber Leave-in Conditioner. “It instantly detangles and boosts moisture, softness and shine.”

HOW TO GET THE LOOK:
-Comb Marine Summer Hair Beachcomber Leave-in Conditioner through hair with a flat brush.
-Blow dry straight.
-Flat iron for extra straightness.
-Use a diffuser at the roots to add a bit of volume.

PERFECT BEACH WAVES:

THIN HAIR
Ward recommends Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo to add a bit of volume and prevent frizz. “Frizz is caused by humidity, so it is important to take the excess grease and moisture out of your hair. Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo effectively soaks up oil, removes product build-up, and boosts volume. Hair looks, feels, and smells freshly shampooed with a clean, lemon verbena scent.”

HOW TO GET THE LOOK:
-Blow dry the hair on a smaller sized round brush.
-Take large sections and blow dry in an upwards direction until the entire section is dry and hot, then while the hair is still hot roll it up on two fingers and clip it in place for 15 to 25 minutes, you repeat this process until all your hair is clipped up in different sections. For beginners, this might take a little practice.
-For tighter waves once hair is dry you can very well use curling irons of your choice, the product doesn’t stick to hot tools, so works very easily.

PERFECT BEACH WAVES:

FINE TO MEDIUM HAIR
Ward used Living Proof Wave Shaping Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Spray on Eliza Dushku. “The lightweight spray is an extremely versatile formula that dries fast and leaves hair with incredible shine… and holds the perfect curl.”

HOW TO GET THE LOOK:
-10 to 15 sprays of the Living Proof Wave Shaping Curl Defining No Frizz Styling Spray; the amount of product used depends on the length of the hair. Brush Living Proof No Frizz through the hair evenly and make sure your hair is fully saturated with product.
-Use a big round brush to blow dry the hair with a bit of bounce. Roll the hair like you would a hair roller around the brush and then apply heat to both the root and the lengths on the brush.
-Use a curling iron to finish the ends. This will give you a more defined curl.
