Spring is here and Summer is so close that we can feel it (especially in our hair), which means it’s time to change up our hairstyles for the season.

Roman Kusayev, one of NYC’s top stylists and owner of Roman K Salon, knows all the perfect tips, trends, and products to keep your hair on-point this season. He shares the hottest styles for any type of weather, quick styles during a weekend getaway, tips on how to protect your hair from the sun, and exactly which product(s) will help maintain each look throughout the warm-weathered days and nights.
