Summer is a time for fun, but also a time to experiment with your hair and look fashionable and irresistible. Your hair frames your face and makes it look more attractive, that’s why you shouldn’t neglect your hair’s appearance. The best thing about summer hairstyles is that you don’t have to spend too much time or effort in front of the mirror to create the perfect summer hairstyle.
Here are 5 super-easy summer hairstyles you should try, some of which that you can create in couple of minutes and you’ll have a hairstyle that goes well with any summery outfit.
Summer hairstyles you should try – Romantic waves
If you are looking for an innocent and romantic look, this is the summer hairstyle for you. For this hairstyle, if you have curly or wavy hair, it’s great, if not, you can use a curling iron to create soft waves.
Apply heat protectant, separate your hair into sections and curl them with a curling iron or curling wand (wide barrel curling iron will create more loose and romantic curls). When you’re done, untangle your curls with your fingers and apply a small amount of hair spray.
This is where the fun begins. To add more summery look to your hairstyle, use flowery hairbands, hair clips or just twist two sections of your hair around the top or the back of your head to create a hairband. For more casual look, it’s good to choose simple hairband that doesn’t have big flowers or details. For more elegant look, you can choose hairband or hair clip with big sparkly stones.
Summer hairstyles you should try – Elegant bun
If you have a long hair and it makes you feel too warm in the summer heat, then you can create an elegant bun that looks great with any outfit and makes your neck and shoulders feel cooler.
Untangle your hair and comb it backwards into a tight ponytail. Create a high ponytail if you want a more modern bun or a low ponytail if you want that classic ballerina bun. You can also decide if you want your side part to be visible or not. When you’re done creating your ponytail, use a little hair wax or hair spray and tame the flyaways.
At this point, you can just twist your ponytail in tight or loose bun and secure it with hairpins. Or you can do this for a more fun look: Braid your ponytail into a simple braid and twist the braid into a bun. Secure with hairpins. You can also add some decorative hair clips or hairband to create more elegant look.
Summer hairstyles you should try – Slick back hair
Slick back hair looks great on short and medium long hair, but if you have long hair you can also rock it. This summer hairstyle is sophisticated, sexy and edgy in the same time and it looks great if you’re wearing heavier makeup, like smoky eyes. It’s great to wear it during the day and it’s also great if you’re going out.
This summer hairstyle can’t be any easier to create. All you need to do is to apply some hair mousse, hair spray or hair gel on a damp hair, comb your hair backwards with a comb and let it dry. When you apply the product, make sure that you apply more product on the sides of your head, because this is the place where your hair moves the most. You can also do this on a dry hair, use some product that will give you a ‘wet’ look, or tease the top of your hair for more volume.
Summer hairstyles you should try – Sleek ponytail
Don’t underestimate the power of a ponytail. A sleek high ponytail will make you look sexy and confident and it goes great with everyday, elegant or edgy outfit. This summer hairstyle is also perfect for the beach and going out with your friends.
If you have wavy hair, it’s best to straighten it because the sleek ponytail looks better with ultra straight hair. Using a hair brush, brush your hair backwards and create a high ponytail. If you like, you can also leave your side part visible for more elegant look. Using a hair wax or hair spray, make your hair really sleek and tame the flyaways and your sleek ponytail is done.
Summer hairstyles you should try – Short and messy
If you have short hair, especially short and layered hair, the messy look is perfect for you. It’s also really easy to make and in couple of minutes you can have great messy hairstyle, perfect for summer. This summer hairstyle will also look great if you have medium length layered hair.
Start with a damp hair and apply a little bit of hair mousse or a sea salt texturizing hair spray. Dry your hair with a hair dryer without using a hair brush or combing your hair. Take a little bit of hair wax and apply it on the ends and your messy summer hairstyle is done.
