Who cares if it’s still only spring? We’re already thinking about our first summer swim—and we want our readers to be prepared. So when you’re in and out of the pool, use these surprising tips from celebrity hairstylist Kristan Serafino to protect your hair.

Now that your hair is taken care of, get on with the summer planning, starting with our guide to hosting a pool party.
