"In case the steamy weather didn’t give things away, summer is still here. The good news is you can be sure that there are plenty more backyard barbeques and beach days to look forward to. The bad news is that summer events call for summer hairstyles. Between the record high temperatures and serious humidity, it’s probably safe to assume you’re not looking to spend an hour attached to a curling iron. So, what to do?
Meet Leo Manetti, master stylist and co-owner of New York City salon ION Studio. He’s Italian, so he’s got the whole easygoing, summer chic thing down to a science. Plus, ION just partnered with cult favorite (and fellow Italian) hair care brand Davines to become its flagship U.S. salon, so, he also has serious arsenal of standout products to work with too.
On the eve of the grand re-opening of Ion’s newly renovated space we quizzed the laidback Italian about his favorite quick (we’re talking five minutes or less) summer hairstyles for every occasion. Luckily, he obliged and offered some product tips too (but don’t expect braids – he’s really over those). Read on for major hair-spiration and know this: humidity’s got nothing on you." - text Victoria Lewis
