Recreate Our Fave Transition Styles With Sexy Hair


This feature is in conjunction with paid inclusion in the Hello Salon Pro by The Tease August Box.

Believe it or not, fall is on its way. And even if you’re hard pressed to get rid of your beachy blonde or fruity creative color, you can still transition into the new season with a trendy style, no cut required! To prove it, we took to Instagram with our pals at SexyHair to choose our favorite hair trends for the summer-to-fall season.

After drooling over the #pullthroughbraid and #butterflyhair, we also noticed two all-star products were getting some hype from styling pros:

Sexy Hair ArtistryPro Avant-Guard Heat Protection & Finishing Spray 

First, let’s just say it’s getting hot in here. Luckily, the Avant-Guard Heat Protection & Finishing Spray can take the heat (up to 450 degrees). To prep clients with hold and protection, apply this lightweight formula as a shield to strands and style. Also, Avant-Guard’s hair-strengthening amino acids fuel your look through any heated situation. Watch hair shine under pressure when you use this product. 

Sexy Hair ArtistryPro Tactile Dry Texture Spray

Next is Sexy Hair’s Tactile Dry Texture Spray, a lightweight, buildable formula that amps up volume and texture for up to 24 hours. With this lifesaving product, you don’t have to sacrifice shine or hydration like with a typical dry spray. The vital amino acids enrich strands and strengthen hair’s proteins. To apply, hold 6-8 inches away from the scalp and spray to the underside of each section. Tousle and tease for reawakened, sexy results.

Keep reading to see six styles we love, crafted with these stellar staples:

Perfectly Coiffed Curls

After washing with the Clean Palette Shampoo + Base Coat Conditioner from SexyHair’s Artistry Pro collection, @tiffanymhair prepped this client’s curls with the Cutting Edge Leave-in Spray. Then, it was Avant-Guard to the rescue to create hold and protect from the heat as she created these spirals, while Tactile added volume + texture to really make this look wow-worthy.

Butterfly Hair

This is definitely my fave trend for any season (don’t @ me). While #butterflyhair is obviously named after its accessories, the key to elevating this style above its ‘90s roots is using texture and volume to create an almost-editorial look. The top renditions are often accompanied with full-bodies curls or braids, and the key to recreating this next-level style on any hair type is Tactile — which @beautymarkedbysarah used to get this perfect texture and separation.

Undone Bun

As if all of us long hair wearers aren’t wearing messy buns at home right now (guilty). At least this sleek option by @jessicadomoney makes the style look pristine.The secret? Avant-Guard keeps this style smoothed and lifted, with zero effort — perfect for our lazy #wfh days. Plus, the amino acids keep second (or third or fourth) day hair moisturized and lively.


Braids are, admittedly, a go-to style for my fine and pin-straight hair. Although a standard down-the-middle rendition can be a bit boring, combining multiple techniques in one is a great twist on this classic style. @samirasjewelry applied Avant-Guard to protect hair before curling, as well as hold in her braids and amplify shine.

Throwback Texture

This is another style I can’t get over. Without a doubt, stylists everywhere have seen the shag pop up on their Instagrams. This equally chic throwback comes straight from the ‘80s with big BIG volume, created with a mastery of SexyHair’s Avant-Guard, Tactile combo. @tiffanymhair created yet another hair masterpiece with amped up texture and hold to protect these big, rocker curls. We’re ready to jam the night away.
