HOUSTON – With more than 42,000 followers on TikTok, celebrity hairstylist Joseph Maine is always on point with the latest hair and beauty trends.

He recently shared some styling secrets for dealing with the Houston heat and humidity.

Up first, Maine recommends Color Wow Dream Coat, which is an anti-frizz treatment that lasts through three washes.

He says it also blocks out humidity like a rain coat, and adds some shine to your hair. Plus, it’s lightweight and water-based!

Another tool that’s been trending online is the Blowout Brush.

Maine suggests the Easy Blo: One-Step Dryer and Volumizer by Trademark Beauty.

It also helps fight frizz and smooths hair.

And he says with this tool, “it’s never been easier to get a salon quality blowout at home.”

Here’s some hair inspiration for summertime.

1. A new twist on the classic low bun

This style works best with “dirty hair, and is a great go-to style for any event.

To get started he recommends making a really nice sleek bun, then adding a little shine to it, using either a shine spray or some sort of serum.

“It gives you that really nice, glossy finish that gives it that red carpet look,” Maine said.

He then finishes the look by adding fun hair accessories, like jewels or rhinestone studs.

Houston Life’s Courtney Zavala gave this style a try at home.

She said it was pretty easy for her to do herself.

“I literally thought my hair was too thick for this, and I am so impressed. This is now my go-to look,” Zavala said.

2. Cheat your ponytail length

Get the perfect high ponytail by creating three separate sections, down the middle of your head.

Start with a high ponytail, then create another one below that one, and finally a low ponytail.

Then tease and adjust to make it look like one full ponytail.

3. Create your own fish tail crown

This look is perfect for a summertime party or date night look.

For this style, Maine recommends starting with two pigtail braids, then making the “fishtails” down the length of the hair, wrap it up around the top of your head and pin to finish it.

As with all of his looks, he suggests using this guide as inspiration to make these styles your own.
