SUMMER STORY

As you think of summer, you can feel the warmth of the sun on your face, the soft sand on your feet and the smell of the ocean air. Summer means fun in the sun: lazy beach days, backyard BBQ's, graduations, weddings – long days and hot nights.

The summer is all about lightening up – from sun-kissed highlights for bright blondes, to redheads for a copper glow and brunettes exude a feel similar to that of a bronze goddess. Try some of the Inspirational Formulas below and you'll wish that summer could always be here.
