The mercury’s rising and we’re all having that sticky feeling—these two occurrences could mean one thing, it’s already summer. The changing of the season calls for an update on how we look—an update, such as hairstyle, which is more practical and easy to manage as we course through this fun, albeit scorching, weather.
Here are five easy and chic hairstyles women can sport in summer.
This hair trend that’s been sweeping salons for over three years now remains a chic choice of cut that looks universally flattering on all hair types. Lob, or long bob, strikes the balance between long and short hair, and perfect for those who can’t let go of their long locks but don’t want to go all-out short.
Opt for shoulder length chop which you could tie up in a ponytail should you prefer. Layers, meanwhile, add dimension and laid-back appeal to your summer hairstyle.
Girls with long locks may french braid their hair all the way down to the tips while keeping it loose and a bit messy, for a boho appeal. Short-haired women, don’t fret, as you may sport this style by braiding a section of your hair on each side and pinning them. Use a curling iron to make soft tousles.
This look is perfect for keeping hair out of your face.
Half-up top knot
After guys had their fair share of the man-bun trend, it is now girls’ turn to have fun with the easy to do and versatile half-up style. This style looks effortlessly chic when done right. Instead of simply putting the upper half portion of your hair in a bun, make it more feminine (or make it look like you actually put in a lot of effort) by adding soft, beach-y waves with the use of curling iron or by simply air drying it.
Add wisps of hair on both sides for an unpolished look.
Low side updo
This universally flattering style works best on hair with medium to long length. Grab your tresses on one side and secure them with bobby pins and hairspray. For a lived-in feel, keep it unpolished-looking by making the bun messier. Pull a small portion of hair on both sides for an undone appeal, and pin a cute clip near the bun for a feminine touch.
This style works best in a sizzling weather as it keeps hair from sticking to your neck.
But speaking of keeping hair out of your face, nothing still beats the classic ponytail. It’s sleek, it’s versatile, and it’s easy to do. To make this look more put-together, cover the elastic with one-inch section of your hair, which is pulled from the underside, and wrap it around the base of the tail.
Straight-haired women may curl their stiff ponytail to achieve a softer look.
