Tousled Beach Waves
Tousled waves are one of the easiest hairstyles to master, especially if your hair already has a natural wave. Most women love this hairstyle because it’s versatile and universally flattering. Beach waves can be created with or without heat, depending on your hair type. Beauty gurus have made countless tutorials if you need a little extra help mastering this summery look.
If you have short hair or are wanting a change, try rocking a short bob. This hairstyle can be blunt or it can be layered, it’s entirely up to you. No matter what you choose, it will be perfect for summer. It keeps your hair looking light and breezy, which is just what you want when the weather begins to warm up.
There’s no question that braids are one of the most popular summer hairstyles. As a child, you may remember your mother braiding your hair prior to long days at the pool or beach. As an adult, you can still do the same thing. But instead of pulling your hair into a tight braid, allow yourself to look a little messier than normal. Loose braids are a laid back alternative to your regular hairstyle.
If you haven’t accepted the low-bun trend yet, what are you waiting for? It’s perfect for those with long, lengthy locks. And, it’s something other than a repetitive ponytail. The low bun transitions perfectly from the office, to happy hour with friends, to movie night at home with your S.O. So, no matter where you’re at or what you’re doing, it’s always a good time to rock a low bun.
While traditional braids are fun for the summer months, so are braided ponytails. If you need inspiration, look no further than Blake Lively. She wears this hairstyle on a regular basis—and you should too. All you have to do is slick your hair into a high ponytail and then loosely braid your hair down your back. Once finished, tie it off at the end.
This hairstyle is for women with curls. Everyone knows curly hair can be unruly and unpredictable. Because of this, it’s nice to have a go-to curly updo you can wear if needed. And because the summer months are hot and humid, it’s the ideal time to find your signature curly updo. Experiment your hair and find what works best for your hair. Once you figure it out, keep a hair tie with you at all times.
Yes, summer weather can be unbearable—especially if you live somewhere with extremely hot temperatures. During this type of heat, you’ll want to get your hair off the nape of your neck. One of the easiest ways to do this is to put your hair into a high ponytail. If you have thin hair and want to fake volume and body, use the bobbi pin trick. All you have to do is place two bobbi pins vertically into the underside of your ponytail. You’ll instantly notice more height and volume.
This summer is all about statement hair accessories. What celebrities and beauty influencers are loving most at the moment are headbands and hair clips. Thick, velvet headbands and patterned, linen headbands are extremely trendy right now. If you aren’t sure about headbands, try easing into the hair accessory trend by wearing a pearl or rhinestone hair clip.
This is a diverse and individualized hairstyle. Non-conventional braids can be done countless ways. If you’re wanting to give yourself texture, create small, thin braids in your hair. They can be at the crown of your head, at the part of your hair, or braided all the way to the ends of your hair. Find what works best for you and go for it!
Curled Baby Hairs
This hairstyle is inspired by lots of celebrities and beauty influencers. Although it requires more time and effort to create than the majority of these summer styles, it looks so chic. To do this, it’s likely that you’ll want to first put your hair into a slicked-back style—like a low bun or high ponytail. You’ll leave a few baby hairs down near your face and secure them using a hair gel or hairspray with hold.
Your stereotypical ponytails start looking tired after a while, which is why it’s so important to change it up every now and then. An effortless ponytail is even easier than a regular ponytail. All you have to do is loosely tie your hair back, leavy a few strands framing your face. It truly looks (and is) effortless!
It’s likely you’ll remember shag haircuts from the 1970s—and if you don’t remember them, it’s time you find out why they’re making a comeback. These layered cuts are so summery. They add texture, depth, and volume to hair, giving you exactly what you want and need during the warm summer months. And the best part about this hairstyle, it looks perfect on both short and long hair.
If you’re wanting waves that look different from your curling iron curls, or if you aren’t satisfied with your natural waves, use your flatiron to get the hair of your dreams. I know, it sounds counterintuitive, but it works. Your flatiron can do so much more than just straighten your hair. All you have to do is take a section of your hair at a time and twist your wrist away from your face as you straighten to create bouncy, beachy waves.
While not all bangs are universally flattering, curtain bangs are. They look lovely on everyone—literally. If you think you can’t pull them off, you’re wrong. These shaggy bangs frame your face and leave you looking like a ‘70s celebrity. And what’s so great about them is that they’re long enough to pin back if you want them out of your face. Whether your hair is short, long, curly, wavy, or straight, you can totally rock these bangs.
Just like low buns, low ponytails are also in for summer. If you wear them low, slicked back, and parted down the middle, you’ll look so glam. This hairstyle will save the day on mornings when you’re running late or in dire need of dry shampoo. If you want to dress this hairstyle up, take a strand of hair from your ponytail, wrap it around your hair tie to hide it, and fasten it with pins.
