Hairstyles We Love for Summer 2015

Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner, ushering in South Carolina’s favorite season–summer! Therefore, here are some of our favorite summer styles of which we can’t get enough:

1. The voluminous bob











Seen here on Julianne Hough performing on Lip Sync Battle (this show is awesome if you don’t watch, by the way), this bob has tons of volume and bend to give it a fresh, youthful look. We love it for summer: because it’s easy to maintain and will look great with strapless dresses!

2. The grown-out pixie











This has been popular for a few years now and is still a summertime favorite of ours. Why we love it for summer: you can dry it quickly (or let it air dry), and run your fingers through it with some wax to make it piecey. If you’re going for a more elegant look, try curling a few pieces near your face or adding a pretty headband. 

3. Braids











Braids are ultra cool-girl summer staple. Why we love it for summer: it’s casual, pulls your hair off of your gorgeous, sun-kissed face and you can dress them up or down for night and day shenanigans. 

4. Go Pink











Stars have been dying their hair all shades of green, purple and blue, but we actually think pink looks great on a variety of skin tones and hair textures. Why we love it for summer: Because when is there a better time to go pink?

Lowcountry Live Spotlights Maya Chia

Untitled design (38)

Maya Chia is a wonderful oil that, unlike other moisturizers, soaks into your skin quickly. Made from Chia, the most nutrient-rich plant on Earth, it penetrates deeply and nourishes your skin. That’s why all of our Charleston locations are currently carrying Maya Chia–and why we think you should look into them, too!

Lowcountry Live spotlights the product line beautifully, so we’ll leave it to them:

Upcoming Days to Celebrate with Urban Nirvana

There are some important dates coming up on your calendar, and Urban Nirvana has great ideas on how to celebrate!


The first is Administrative Professionals Day, which is April 22nd. Don’t forget about the people who make you look good. Say “thank you” by giving them the gift of rejuvenation at Urban Nirvana. You can purchase our gift cards online and print or email instantly, making it the perfect, hassle-free gift.

The second is Mother’s Day, which is just a couple of weeks away. It’s no secrets that Urban Nirvana loves Mamas. We offer prenatal massages specialized for pregnant women’s comfort, and for those ladies that have already given the gift of life, we’ve got lots of retail goodies (like these products we love for spring) and a host of relaxing services–massages, facials and hair.

The third is for the man in your life: Father’s Day. Dads need pampering too! Whether it’s a gift for a great haircut from the kids, or a massage from you, he will appreciate a little “me time” on his big day. Spas are not just for the ladies. We have a variety of day spa services catered to men. (Psst.. if he’s getting a massage, we suggest having him add on the Amber treatment, which focuses on the head and feet).

Administrative Professionals Day – April 22

Mother’s Day – May 10th

Father’s Day – June 21st
