What’s your go-to summer hairstyle? If you don’t have one yet, don’t sweat it because we are here to help you out with these easy summer hairstyles that you can recreate yourself!
These looks will instantly make you feel lighter and more relaxed during the summertime. Your hair will be away from your face and body, while still looking super cute. That’s definitely a double win. Read on to find your go-to summer hairstyle!
- A Pineapple Ponytail
The higher, the looser, and the curlier the pony, the better. Gently scoop up all your curls at the crown of your head and secure them with a scrunchie or claw clip, letting your hair spill forward, almost like bangs. Use this method while your curls air-dry, or just wear it like the cool style it is.
- A Hat and Pigtails
Yes, you’re a little limited on hairstyles when it comes to wearing hats, but a low bun isn’t your only option. For the pigtails shown here, divide your hair in half down the middle and bring the sections in front of your shoulders. To add the poufs, space tiny elastics down the tails in equal distances, then gently tug the hair in each section to add the volume and a bubble effect.
- Pinned Back
Curls and humidity can be the best of friends with a few cute accessories…and a few fewer f*cks. Crisscross your pins in a cool pattern, as seen here, to keep what you need to out of your face while letting the rest of your hair do its thing.
- A Bandanna Bun
Just the thought of a handkerchief around my neck makes me all hot and bothered (and not in a good way), but one tied around a half-bun? Pretty and practical.
- Lots of Braids
Sure, braids aren’t the easiest to perfect and definitely not the quickest to get done, but once your hair is set, you’ve pretty much got a no-maintenance hairstyle for a full month. Wear your braids down, tie them back, or pull them into a half-up bun.
- A Messy Topknot
We’ve all done a messy bun before, but it doesn’t mean the style isn’t still cute (especially if you pull out a few wispy, face-framing layers to hang around your face). Bonus: You don’t have to worry about getting a sunburned part because your hair will be pulled back in the sun.
- Barrettes with Bangs
You know what’s not conducive to cute bangs? Forehead sweat. Part your hair down the middle and pin your fringe to each side, as shown here. Make the style feel elevated, not childlike, by using metal barrettes instead of plain bobby pins.
- A Soft Twist
If you’re already a big fan of the messy bun, try amping it up with a French-twist-topknot hybrid. To keep it fresh and not too stiff, leave the ends of your hair loose and pull out some pieces around your face.
- Bubble Ponytail
If you want a creative twist to your regular ponytail, the bubble ponytail is the hairstyle for you. It is perfect for the busy bee who doesn’t have a lot of time. This look is super simple yet so stylish.
- Twist-Back Hairstyle
Ever wanted princess-like hair? Well, this twist-back hairstyle will do the trick. A charming hairdo that will ensure the picture perfect look for your special summer occasion. The best part is it only takes a few minutes to do! You can style this with straight or curly hair.
