Looking for a change to your summer beauty look? Try some of the hottest trends for summer with blonde highlights, braids, natural looks and bright nails. Michael Boychuck, who has Color Salon at Caesars Palace and is a partner in LifeSpa + Salon at Life Time Fitness in Summerlin, shares his tips for refreshing to summer look.
Boychuck says the start of summer is the perfect time to lighten hair and bring out one's natural color. So why not try Boychuck's signature blonde color with hints of honey blonde highlights? To keep hair looking shiny and healthy all summer long, try a Kѐratase Ritual Treatment to protect hair from drying out and becoming too frizzy.
To enhance your natural beauty and keep your hair simple, yet stylish, braids are all the rage this season. A messy, side braid by day or a braided bun to dress up the night. In addition to the laid-back braid, the hair guru to the stars claims that beach waves will make a statement this season. Adding a hair accessory or just letting those long, luscious waves dangle freely creates a perfect by-the-pool look.
"Spring was full of flowery accessories and undone hairdos," Boychuck says. "This summer, we can expect easygoing, beach-style hair and braids that can be worn by the pool or on an evening out with friends. These styles seem simple, yet they look sexy and chic."

Another way to bring out natural beauty is through makeup. He says that to create glowing and dewy skin, try using a peach blush that will leave skin looking soft and fresh.
Nails, on the other hand, full of bright colors are one of the hottest trends for this summer. Using shades such as a hot pink or teal will make a pop, complementing the natural and carefree makeup palette for this summer.
