In this instance it's best to work with you've got and use these factors to your best advantage. We've picked out five hairstyles, including tousled waves, braids and a topknot using celebrity red carpet looks as inspiration. These easy-to-recreate trends will take you from the the beach to the bar with minimal effort — a product or two, a few bobby pins and a hair tie!
A few months ago we were all about the international Spring ’11 runways, and while we’ll be dreaming forever about the clothes, at least the hair and makeup is something we can incorporate into our own realities.

If you want to protect your hair from the effects of the sun, you can always try on a trendy fedora or silky scarf. But if covering your hair with a stylish accessory isn't an option, a hair product containing SPF is the way to go.
Effects of sun damage on the hair can include split ends, faded colour, frizziness and dryness. Luckily, there are heaps of products available to shield your style from the hydration-zapping power of the sunâ€”from hair protectants like Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil ($49.95) to shampoos and conditioners found in Redken's Color Extend line. But it's confession time, are you as protective of your hair as you are your skin? Do you use SPF products on your hair?
