Summer is the time for trying out new looks and experimenting with hairstyles. With its notoriously high temps and humidity, it also requires quick and easy solutions to keep our locks under control. So, why not spruce up your look with a stylish, yet simple summer ‘do? We have put together three easy hairstyles that you can do in a snap, but still look on-trend.
Half Up Messy Bun
This chic and relaxed style is sure to be a hit this summer. Combining two classic hairstyles, the half up and the messy bun, it is sure to turn heads and keep you cool, too. Start with two sections at the crown using a rat-tail comb and secure with an elastic. Take part of the remaining hair and twist it, wrapping the length of your hair around the elastic and secure with a few bobby pins. Finish with a spritz of hairspray and you are good to go.
This style is as easy to achieve as it is beautiful. Simply part your hair and gather it all at the nape of your neck, securing with an elastic. Then, separate into two sections and start a three-strand braid with each. Combine the two braids as you go, now working with four sections. When you reach the end, secure with another elastic and gently pull on sections to loosen. Spray with a bit of hairspray and you’re all set.
This style is perfect for wearing to the beach, but could easily dress up an evening look, too. Start by curling your hair with either a large barrel curling wand or a flat iron. Grab random sections of your hair and wrap either the wand or the straightener away from the face. Hold for 10-15 seconds and release. Once you have curled all your hair, use a bit of hairspray or styling paste to add texture, combing through with your fingers. For an alternative look, you can wet your hair and use a sea salt spray for a more natural, just-been-in-the-ocean look.
So there you have it, three easy hairstyles to get you through summer. Quick and fuss-free, they will leave you with plenty of time to enjoy the warmer months while still looking your best.
