Stylish Sunglass Style with Sophie Elkus

Joico has teamed up with fashion blogger Sophie Elkus of Angel Food Style to share three of her favorite hairstyles and how to best wear them with different sunglasses this summer! Sophie chose three looks: classic beachy waves, a simple but fun braided style, and a killer ponytail.



Sophie says: Beachy waves call for a good pair of aviators. The clean frames perfectly compliment the loose, imperfect waves, and create a casual chic look for any occasion. Pair with a fun floral top and white jeans, and you’ve got a staple summer look. I’d wear this look all day and throw on a neutral sandal for an outdoor dinner in Malibu.


Sophie says: I love to add a couple small braids to each side of my head, and then tuck and pin them for a unique look. It takes no more than five minutes, but adds a little something extra to my everyday style. I’ll pair this hairstyle with quirky shaped tortoise shades. A crochet top and flowy printed skirt creates a comfortable bohemian vibe – perfect for an afternoon stroll in Venice Beach.


Sophie says: Nothing’s more classic than a kicked up ponytail in the summer. It pairs beautifully with a feminine cat-eye, showing off the stylish sunglass frames while accentuating the cheekbones when the hair is pulled back. I love a loose pony about mid-height on my head – even better if my hair is already braided or wavy! A black and white outfit is understated yet stunning, and pops of silver create the perfect finishing touch.

I love to change up my hairstyles, but there’s nothing more important than maintaining healthy, shiny hair. As someone who uses a curling iron at least half of the week, I make sure to protect my hair by using high quality products. Joico’s K-PAK Reconstructor makes it super easy to maintain healthy hair while transitioning hairstyles – inside is the best repairing shampoo and conditioner plus an intense hydrating treatment. How cute is this limited edition package? Each comes with a complimentary sunglass case! Which pair of sunnies will you be wearing with your favorite summer hairstyle?
