José Eber has styled everyone from Farrah Fawcett to Elizabeth Taylor throughout his 40-plus years in the business, so you could say he knows a thing or two about hair. The founder of José Eber Salon in Beverly Hills, Eber says, "There is nothing more attractive than a woman who knows who she is. I believe beauty comes from inside." But when it comes to the outside, Eber has a few tips for achieving your best summertime hair yet. Learn more on warm-weather hair "dos" now.
"I love braids and buns; there are so many variations, too, so play around and have fun with it," he explains. Of course, you can never go wrong with beachy waves. "They are so easy to do and they give you a very sexy and carefree look," says Eber, who recommends using his Trio multibarrel curling iron ($169) for easy-to-form curls that alternate in size.
Pool- and beach-worthy hairstyles:
"Again, braids, buns, and ponytails are all quick and easy hairstyles to wear to the pool or the beach," Eber says. And don't forget those headbands and scarves, which not only look chic, but also help keep hair away from your face.
Summer hair care:
Say goodbye to dry hair, split ends, and/or faded color this season. Eber suggests protecting your strands by doing deep conditioning treatments more frequently and by using a sun protector to keep your style in tip-top shape.
