It’s cool, Blake Lively, something about the summer makes us want to emulate our favorite Disney characters, too. We totally get where you’re going with this Little Mermaid-esque side braid that you accessorized with a “thingamabob” from your treasure trove. Just remember that this hairstyle only works when we’re all a little woozy from the summer heat.

Looking like you just walked into a glitter tornado à la Ke$ha is never okay; however, come summertime, we grant you permission to play around with a little more eye glitz than you would in the colder months. Instead of a glitter face mask like Miss $, though, some gold eyeliner with small flecks of sparkle will totally stand out when you’re on the dance floor during these last few weeks of summer.

It may be Nicki Minaj’s signature lip color, but for the rest of us, bubblebum pink lipstick must sadly remain a halcyon summer memory. Flaunt this Pepto pink hue all you want through July and August, but get ready to trade it in for a sensible fall red come September.

It may not be the Summer of Love, but you can still rock a headband made of flowers when the occasion calls for it (i.e. concerts, music festivals, a random Tuesday, etc.). Here, Mischa Barton demonstrates the right and wrong way to wear this summer trend. Learn from Barton’s bungle: If you’re doing a floral headband, go light on your makeup so as to avoid looking like a crazy parrot.

Lady Gaga’s ever-changing hairstyles and hair colors are nothing new–in the past year alone she’s sported blonde, lavender, turquoise and yellow locks. In July and the beginning of August, the singer was in a Blue Period (perhaps inspired by Picasso or the upcoming Smurfs movie) that included wearing her teal hair in long waves or a short bob. If you want to look extra fierce in warm weather, rainbow-colored hair is the way to go.
