Who wants to waste time fixing their hair when you could be having fun in the sun? Looking effortless doesn’t have to be a process. If you are searching for hair inspo for the hottest days of the year, look no further. These hairstyles will have you ready in no-time and set to beat the heat. From ponytails tied with a scarf to simple top knots, here are eight easy summer hairstyles everyone should try this season.
The Low Single Braid
Not only does a braid look sleek, but it also controls your hair throughout the day to keep you cool. This low braid also pairs well with a headband for extra oomph. You could even try starting with a french or dutch braid depending on the desired look.
Classic High Pony with a Statement Scarf
A classic ponytail gets accessorized with a patterned scarf. In order to keep heavy, hot hair off of your neck, pull your hair up into a hair band and then decorate with your accessory of choice.
Simple Top Knot with Twist Pins
Buns are warm-weather staples because they control and conceal the humidity frizz while leaving our neck cool. If you have trouble trusting typical hairbands, try using bun pins to support your top knot. Just gather your hair into your desired style and twist in three or four pins to lock the look.
Pulled Half-Back with Bobby Pins
Bobby pins work double duty in this summer hairstyle. They hold hair away from your face and add some personality to the look. Just take a front section of your hair and pin it back with a few bobby pins of your choice (the more the merrier).
Half-Up Scrunchie Pigtails
This playful ‘do may remind you of childhood summers, but we’re bringing pigtails back for this grown-up version. Section off two front portions of your hair and tie each up with a scrunchie for extra flair. Your hair will look fresh and funky while keeping it out of your face on hot days.
Scarf Headband with Loose Curls
The most adorable hair accessory this summer is a fun scarf. Keep it simple by tying it in the middle of your head and pulling a few pieces forward to make the scarf seamlessly blend with your hair.
Half-Up, Half-Down, Shades Out
Colorful Tips in Playful Pigtails
Switch things up and add color to your summer hairstyle. You can sport your favorite shade without the commitment by using a semi-permanent dye. Style this look with low pigtails and a fisherman hat to beat the heat and shield your face from the sun.
