Best Hairstyles For Women- 11 Gorgeous and Effortless Looks!

Best Hairstyles For Women- 11 Gorgeous and Effortless Looks!

Hello Everyone!

Today I will be talking about some quick, simple, and cute hairstyles for women to wear this summer! Hot weather makes it hard to really do full makeup and wear your hair in complex hairstyles so I will be sharing some styles to keep you feeling cool and cute in the hot sun.

It is important that we always take care of our hair- especially in the summer. Intense heat from the sun can further damage our hair! Make sure your hair is staying moisturized and you avoid long durations in direct sun as best as you can. When you take a dip in a nice, cold pool make sure you are washing your hair afterwards! Wearing swimming caps may not be the most stylish option so take care of your hair after chlorine exposure.

So let’s get into it!


  1. 2-Front Braids

The first style is the very simplest of the 11 hairstyles on this list! This can be worn at any time of time and is a quick and casual everyday look. All you have to do is part your hair in the middle and take to medium-size triangular pieces next to the part. You can braid these two pieces or you can leave them and put your hair in a bun or ponytail. This adds a bit of dimension to your face and spices up a basic hairstyle. All you need to complete this look is a comb, braiding ability, and hair elastics.

2. Middle-part slick back

If you have been following Audacia for a while, you know I love to mention a middle part slick back look. It is so timeless! This look can be daytime, night-time, causal, dressy, classy, and sexy! Most of all, it can be done in 5 minutes. All you need for this look is a comb, brush, styling gel or pomade, and a hair tie. You can put the hair in a ponytail, braid, or bun. Keep in mind that this is not necessarily an everyday style as a result of the styling gel and brush on the edges of your hair can cause damage but you can preserve your hairstyle by using a silk scarf when you go to bed and a shower cap!

3. Faux locs

This is a very cute and lightweight style! Committing to locs is not something that can be done lightly but this does not mean you can’t try out this style! Faux locs have been recently very popular and for a great reason. They are very versatile in length, style, and colour. If you have done your hair at home, you can take on the challenge of doing your own faux locs! For this style, you’ll need a rat-tail comb, clean pre-stretched hair, braiding hair, crochet hair, and hair clips. If you are inexperienced with doing hair, I recommend going to an accredited stylist near you.

4. Passion twists

Passion twists are an oldie but a goodie. This style is very natural, simple, and is perfect for summer! This style is slightly different from regular twists because of the use of curly crochet hair. Using this type of hair allows for a subtle curl to be added to each twist giving the hair more body and personality. This is a simple style that can even be done at home by beginners. All you need for this look is a rat-tail comb, clean pre-stretched hair, curly crochet hair, hair ties, and some styling gel.

5. Big curls

This is a very recent TikTok trend. I love this style because it is so in line with the 70s inspired fashion trends we are seeing this summer. If you want to do something super fun and new with your hair- try this out! You’ll need some clean straightened hair, hair rollers, a round brush, and a touch of hair spray. This look is great as a daytime beach look with a cute sundress and stylish accessories.

6. Knotless braids

Knotless braids have been booming in the natural hair community and for good reason. This new technique of braiding allows the braids to be smaller, lay flatter on your head and decreases tension on your roots. What could you want? This look is great for the summer because the style can be easily manipulated into a ponytail or bun. For this style, a rat-tail comb, braiding hair, hair ties, and styling gel are needed. These braids may take longer than usual because each braid is done in a “fed-in” technique in which more pieces are added as the braid continues. Try it out at home or go to a hairstylist near you!

7. Headbands

I love this preppy/ sporty look! The large headband gives off the country club look. This can be done with any type of hair at any length! Just slide on a thick headband and dress in a classic preppy outfit. Very cute and trendy!

8. Alligator/ crocodile hair clips

This is a super simple style that is still very stylish. All you need is a clip and some medium-length hair. This style is great for getting your hair out of the way in the hot sun. Not the best for any sports activities but is very casual and practical for everyday wear.

9. Headscarf

The silk headscarf is a timeless look that goes all the way back to the 50s and beyond. It is very simple and cute and is great for keeping your hair under control. All you need is a silk scarf and some bobby pins! You’ll be tying the scarf at the base of your neck and bobby pins can be used to secure it at the back if necessary. You can leave some pieces of hair out at the front to frame your face or you can wear them in more of a cap style!

10. Goddess braids

This style is similar to knotless braids but with a twist. With goddess braids, you’ll be leaving out a considerable length of the hair unbraided at the bottom to curl/wave it in a specific way. You can also add curly pieces of hair along the length of the braid to give off that Lisa Bonet or Zoe Kravitz look! For this style, you’ll need a rat-tail comb, clean pre-stretched hair, braiding hair, curly crochet hair or curly human hair, hair ties, and styling gels. This style can be very versatile and is not harsh on your hair at all- get into it!

11. Natural hair

This one may seem lame but remember your natural has always and will always be a look! Don’t feel pressured to dive into all the new, trendy hairstyles. Taking care of your natural hair will always be most important. This is done not only through products but by maintaining a healthy lifestyle overall. Exercise, eat healthily, and reduce your stress and watch your hair flourish. The summer is a perfect time to let your natural locs free- have fun and be confident!

12 Hot Summer Fashion Trends- Sexy And Simple!

12 Hot Summer Fashion Trends- Sexy And Simple!

Hello Everyone!

Today I will be discussing 12 summer fashion trends that you should try out this year! These trends can be customized to your personal style, dressed up or down, and are ageless! Summer is the best time to come out of your comfort zone (fashion-wise) and spice up what you’re wearing. Don’t feel pressured to follow the crowd or wear what everyone else is wearing on Instagram. Try to identify your personal look and style and have fun with some new trends! Creating a Pinterest board is an efficient way to keep track of some of the looks you like.

The summer trends have been heavily influenced by ’70s, 2000s, and y2k fashion and it’s great! This is a testament to buying quality pieces and keeping them over the years. I’m sure many older people have vintage pieces that can be worn this summer! The vibe is relaxed, colourful, artsy, decorated, and individualistic. No more carbon copy fashion- this summer is about taking inspiration from the trends and making them uniquely your own! Also, I recommend learning your skin undertones and colour type to find what colours make your eyes, skin, and hair pop! Please avoid purchasing from fast fashion stores. Here is a great documentary explaining fast fashion and its detrimental effects. Buy quality, preserve, and thrift!

Let’s get into it!


  1. Clear colours

This is a trend that I am particularly excited about! Although I love wearing all black, it is not the most hot-weather-friendly. I have seen an amazing resurgence in colour! So long to the boring beiges, cream whites, and sandy browns, and welcome in some colour in your outfits. When I say “clear colours”, I mean wearing clothing in which the colour is purer than it is an off “shade” of that colour. This trend can be executed in multiple ways. You can wear one colour all in the same shade, wear one colour in different shades, have a statement piece with a clear colour, or mix clear colours in your outfits, etc. Bring out that old loud green t-shirt and wear it with some relaxed greens and sneakers!

2. Eternity and enamel rings

If you are a jewelry lover then this trend is for you! Eternity diamond rings or enamels rings are in season! I’ve been eternity rings with gold or silver bands and colourful diamonds stacked on one finger or enamels rings on all of your fingers. Play around and see what’s comfortable for yourself!

3. Square-toed heels

Bottega Veneta has been dominating shoes at the moment. Their square-toed heels have taken the spotlight from the classic pointed shape. These are super cute and can be styled with jeans, dresses, or shorts. I have also observed a revival in smaller, chunkier heels and sandal heels. We love comfort at Audacia! Square-toed heels or heels, in general, may not be your thing and that’s okay, a bonus trend is chunky sneakers and low Jordans. Try both out and find out what you love!

4. Blazers

The oversized blazer has not necessarily made a comeback but it definitely a moment that is sticking around this summer. The oversized blazer (which can be worn in a “clear” colour) is a cute way to warm up or class up your nighttime outfit. It can be worn casually with a pair of jeans and sneakers or dressed up with a dress and some square-toed heels.

5. Boxy- relaxed silhouette

This is a general trend but is one the has circulated all the way from the 1920s. The relaxed silhouette is very popular not only in the summer but this year! Baggy sweaters, jeans, and t-shirts are the way to go. Get comfortable in your clothes and wear things a size-up. This look is very men’s 2000s as well but can be fashioned to still be cute or sexy. Try on some larger-sized clothing and see if you like it!

6. French tips and designs

French tips are always a classy nail style to go with but it does not have to be so plain anymore! Playing around with the colour of the tips and adding intricate designs is in! You can try different shades of the same colour as the tips, different colours for all the tips, or designs on each tip. This trend can make your nails uniquely YOU and show off your amazing personality with such small details!

7. Frameless or rectangle sunglasses

Frameless and/ or large sunglasses are a 2000s favourite that is back in! Glasses with a gradient are super cute and can be paired with a variety of outfits (and can be used when you’re not feeling cute).

8. Shoulder bags and small clutches

Shoulder bags and small clutches have been kicking around for a while. Smaller bags, purses, clutches are staying around for the summer and it’s great! I have never personally been a fan of huge handbags so I love this trend. You don’t have to buy a YSL or Christian Dior bag, check out your local thrift shop, affordable (non-fast fashion) online shops, eBay, and Depop for great options. Don’t be afraid of branching out from the classic black or brown bags!

9. Heavily stacked accessories

In line with enamel rings and eternity rings, jewelry, in general, is being heavily stacked everywhere! Lots of bracelets, rings, earrings, anklets, and necklaces are a huge trend. Adornment is circulating so don’t be afraid to wear 10 different rings or 5 necklaces- minimalism is not necessary!

10. Relaxed jeans

Say goodbye to skinny jeans (for now) and welcome some relaxed or oversize jeans in your life. This one is also very 2000s and is very versatile. Jeans can be dressed up with a nice blouse, a corset, or even an oversize blazer! On the other hand, you can execute the relaxed silhouette by pairing relaxed jeans with a baggy, clear-coloured t-shirt or hoodie.

11. Slick back middle part hairstyles

I personally refer to this as the Bella Hadid bun! On the other hand, I don’t recommend pulling your hair tight and adding a lot of styling products too often but if you’re looking for a special and simple hairstyle- try this out! This hairstyle is great for parties or if you’re wearing an outfit that shows off your back! Get out your comb, brush, pomade, hair ties, and hairspray and try this out!

12. Loud prints, patterns, and cuts

Lastly, loud prints, patterns, and extravagant cuts are in! Although this look is heavily influenced by vintage Jean Paul Gaultier- it doesn’t have to be at that price. The thrift is a great option for finding some unique, trendy, and affordable clothing!

How to Maximize Your Self-Care- Are You a Self-Care Cliché?

How to Maximize Your Self-Care- Are You a Self-Care Cliché?

Hello Everyone! Today I will be talking about what self-care really means! Over the years, the definition of self-care has been deluded into over-spending, over-indulgence, procrastination. Self-care is formally defined as, “the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one’s own health” (Oxford Languages). 

Feeling Down? Here Are 7 Ways to Instantly Upgrade Your Look!

Feeling Down? Here Are 7 Ways to Instantly Upgrade Your Look!

Hello Everyone!

Today I will be sharing a couple ways for you to instantly upgrade your look!

It can be very easy to get into your own head and you can forget to take care of yourself! Have you found yourself not showering everyday? Have you stayed in your pyjamas all day…even in your zoom meetings? I will be giving you some tips to upgrade your look with ease.

These easy tips will instantly make you look more put together on those days you’re feeling down and out!

So let’s get into it!


  1. Monochromatic Matching Loungewear and Outfits

Let’s be real- loungewear is just acceptable pyjamas, but they are super cute! Wearing one colour can make you look more put-together and classy without having to spend half an hour picking out an outfit. They can also be just as comfortable as those pyjamas you love so don’t hesitate to pick up a pair! Loungewear can come in a sweater/joggers pair, cami/shorts pair, cardigan/cami/shorts pair, and many more- so choose what looks best and feels best for you! Popular loungewear are super cute and tend to have a soft texture (silk, faux fur, fuzzy) and fit in a relaxed way. Here is an example:

2. Filed and Polish Nails

Nails that are filed, shaped, and polished can make you 10x more put together and easily upgrade your appearance! It is not necessary to get a full bio-gel $110 set but you can simply shape your natural nails at home and throw on some clear polish. I love clear polish because it goes with every outfit and makes your nails look very healthy!

If clear polish is too boring for you, choose any colour that suits your style. I love pale pinks, bright reds, and the classic french tip. Bonus points if you match your manicure to your pedicure as well! This makes you look like you take pride in your appearance and is super cute (especially paired with that monochromatic loungewear you’ve picked out). It is a very simple step that make you look fashionable!

3. Slick Low Bun

We all have those bad hair days! But what if i told you I have a certified hair style to combat any unruly and uncooperative hair?

The SLICK (middle part) LOW BUN. Yes! This hairstyle might be the easiest thing to do! The slick low bun is very classy and gives off “boss-girl” vibes or you can add some baby hairs to frame your face and you instantly have the “cute girl next door” vibes! It is quite versatile for a simple hairstyle! If the low bun isn’t your speed, you can throw it a braid in the low ponytail instead for a very trend look. So no more, messy top buns and opt for a middle part slick low bun for a more groomed look! Here are some examples:

4. Simple Jewelry

Small Jewelry pieces upgrade your look within seconds! Wearing small earrings, thin banded rings, and a cute bracelet will take your look from 0 to 10 instantly. It is imperative to not choose tacky, in-your-face pieces (that’s not the look we are going for…today at least) because it will definitely cheapen your look! Choose more small pieces to add a delicate and model look to your appearance. Here are some examples of what I mean:

5. Groom Your Eyebrows

Bushy eyebrows are a trend but this does not mean unkempt eyebrows. If your eyebrows have a life of their own, it’s time to get them in line. Here is a great video for at home eyebrow mapping to make sure your eyebrows are as even as possible (if they are not even don’t fret- it’s normal!). Eyebrows frame your face and groomed eyebrows make a huge difference in your appearance. When you groom your eyebrows, your skin looks clear and bright and it brings harmony to your face!

6. Curl Your Eyelashes

If you love a full natural face of makeup – go ahead! But if you’re not feeling up to it, these next two steps will give you a natural makeup look with no makeup! Curling your eyelashes brings life and a little bit of drama to your eyes (you can add mascara if you dare). In my opinion, eyes and lips are the most alluring features, so focus on these to upgrade your appearance instantly (without the heavy lifting of a full makeup look)! A great tip is to heat your eyelash curler with a blow dryer for around a minute and then curl your lashes (be careful not to burn yourself)! This will ensure your lashes will stayed cute and curled all day!

7. Tinted Lipgloss

After curling your lashes, some natural or tinted lipgloss is the final step to upgrading your appearance. Adding some colour and shine to your lips can make them look healthy and add a bit of sexiness to your look!
