Golden tones are a girl's best friend. "It looks beautiful with natural dewy bronzed skin," says hairstylist Karim Odoms, who has created stellar looks for Tia Mowry, Tika Sumpter, and Queen Latifah. "It's also a popular hair color transformation that softens and sweetens any look."

"A beautiful blowout or silky flat-ironed hair exudes shine and movement," says Odoms. "It's clean, with less volume at top, but still has a sophisticated attitude. A centered part or hair tucked behind the ear is how it should be done."

The low ponytail is sure to be a hit this season because it's hassle free and works from day to night. "Spice it up with a hair accessory, or take a piece of hair and wrap twist or braid it around the ponytail for a detailed statement," says Odoms.

Malinda Williams' classic pixie crop is soft with lots of texture. "Rub your fingers through it to give it a messy and choppy feel," says Odoms.

Large braids are a great style for any warm weather season. "Braids are the perfect way to give your hair a break from the heat, constant styling, or when you have exhausted yourself out of ideas," says Odoms. "Not to mention it's a great way to let your hair grow while applying coconut oil on the roots from time to time."

"Big hair makes a statement and says a lot about a woman's attitude," says Odoms.

"The bob is a powerful haircut that screams sexy chic and rebel while complimenting a woman's beautiful bone structure," says Odoms. "You can approach this style with clean blunt lines (graduated with layers), a deep side part, or thick heavy bangs."

Nothing shines brighter than a natural beauty. "Natural hair is at an all time high right now, not only because women are finding harsh chemicals unnecessary, but there's a freeing and versatile feeling that a woman can achieve," says Odoms.

To get the "I woke up like this" look, Odoms suggests braiding damp hair at night. In the morning, finger comb your hair, and a dab of Oribe Gold Lust Oil, and then blend in your edges.
