Summer days call for easy ‘dos and simple styles. After all, when the sun’s shining, you don’t want to waste half your day doing your hair, so something speedy is a must. Likewise, heat is also a factor. Warm weather makes heat styling a pain, so why not avoid blow-drying, straightening, and curling when possible? Whether your hair is long, short, curly, or straight, there’s a hairstyle here for you. From gorgeous updos to chic, loose locks, these summer hairstyles will take you from the beach to brunch in style.
Some cute, easy hairstyles include a relaxed side plait, beach bun, deep side part, slick back, imperfect pixie, schoolgirl braids, curls, buzz cut, pinned back bun, half-bun, wild waves, or simply straight.
When its hot!! Up styles are great for hot weather, getting your hair off our neck and back, and allowing the breeze to cool you down. Try a messy bun, retro ponytail, mini beehive, fishtail braid, crown braid, or straight and sleek pony. Alternatively, short hair is also great for summer. Try a buzz cut, pixie crop, or beach wave bob.
In summer you can deal with the long hair by some tricks for dealing with long hair in the summer include befriending dry shampoo for sweaty days and using leave-in conditioner to combat humidity frizz. A layered cut is a great way to get rid of excess bulk and weight. If you just want your hair out of the way, try any number of ponytail or bun styles, or distribute the weight more evening with a braided style. Lastly, while it might be tempting to wash more often, try to stick to your regular two or three washes per week and embrace the natural texture in between.
1. Relaxed Side Plait
This relaxed side plait is great for adding shape to straight locks. Simply use a three-strand braid to very loosely plait hair to one side.
2. Beach Bun
This wet look beach bun is perfect for days that are too hot for blow-drying. After washing hair, apply a wet-look gel to damp strands and sweep up into a bun. Then, allow hair to dry naturally throughout the day.
3. Boxer Braids
Boxer braids are created by braiding two French braids from the hairline, down the back of the head, and to the ends of strands. This has been one of the most popular hairstyles of the year and is perfect for hot weather.

Unless you have naturally straight hair, creating a sleek ‘do in summer can be a hot mess. Cheat the system by concentrating your efforts only from roots to mid-lengths. Then, pull hair back into a tight, low bun to fake the appearance of sleek hair all over.
5. Crown Braid
Sweaty days call for stylish updos. This chic crown braid will see you through even the hottest summer days with ease. It looks best a bit messy so don’t stress about flyway’s and frizz.
