Simple Summer Hair Styles

Summertime is a mixed blessing. Sure, it’s all fun in the sun most days, but every now and again you need to kick it up a notch or two for a special event or just to get yourself out of hairstyle rut. Whether you’re headed out for a big night or just an office meeting, these ideas can help you keep your summer hair in style.

For long hair, why not try a loose side braid? It’s really the best of both worlds – it looks relaxed and carefree, yet it’s also quite stylish. Better yet, it’s a simple fix for a bad hair day. After you’ve completed the braid, pull loose a few strands to gently frame your face.

The classic bun is always in style, and in summer it can be a great way to keep warm hair off your neck. Whether you opt for a finished or a loose style, you can easily dress it up with a fancy headband or a flashy clip. The same holds true for a high pony, too.

If you have shorter hair, you can’t go wrong with a bob. Make it loose and wavy or sleek and classic. For natural looking waves, use a vertical angle with your curling iron, or just let naturally wavy hair air-dry with a spritz of beach spray. There are lots of bob options for bangs, too. Baby bangs – just an inch or so long – pieced and textured bangs, or none at all. It’s your choice.
