Give your hair a moisture kick!

With summer, your skin not only tans but the hair becomes dull and brittle too. Adding to the woes, chemical treatments or hair colour can make your tresses an easy prey to the UV rays.

With interesting names to choose from,
here are my WoW picks that you must try as well 🙂

♡ NEW-AGE CAT EYES FRAME: The negative space around each frame adds the element of grunge to the designs. They complement an edgy, boho-chic attire for the day.

♡ BEJEWELLED EMBELLISHMENTS: The subtle hint of bling with clip-on metalic embellishments or studded jewels add that uber glam quotient to each frame. It makes a classy statement with a formal as well as semi-formal attire.

♡ COLOURFUL STATEMENTS: Of course summer is the season to have fun and splash into the pool. Playing up neon hues in sunglasses can make that effortlessly cool style statement without going OTT. There are blues, reds, greens, oranges and even yellows to take your pick from!
Make sure to choose a pair of fun shades that go well with your pool party ensemble.
