Summer is quickly approaching! That means its time to uncover your summer dresses, jean shorts and tanks from behind those winter sweaters in your closet. While you’re dressing a little lighter to beat the summer heat you may also want to find a hairstyle that shows off your tresses but doesn’t become a sweaty knotted mess. Check out these summer hairstyles that will help you beat the heat.
The Sock Bun
This trendy simple bun hairstyle can be your best friend during summer heat waves. It keeps your hair completely off your neck and face but is super cute. The best part about the sock bun is how easy it is to recreate and we also love that you can accessorize it with scarves and headbands for a super cute look that matches any summer outfit – or swim suit.
A High Volume Ponytail
Most days you are probably just going to put your hair back in a ponytail and that’s fabulous but for the evenings for summer picnics and celebrations you want a hairstyle that stands out a little more. Simply spice up your ponytail by polishing it off and added lots of volume. It’s that perfect day-to-night transitional look. Style it up high, down low or right in the middle. We love the Kim K sleek voluminous ponytail. Check out how to recreate the look with this tutorial from Casey Holmes.
The Braided Halo
You know you weren’t going to see a summer-style list without the crown braid. When the heat is high then there is no better hairstyle that will keep the frizz and sweat away like the crown braid. This will tame your luscious locks while keeping you as cool as possible. It will also hold up well if you plan on doing some summer sports like volleyball, biking or swimming and then you can take it down for a naturally wavy hairstyle for the evening or next day. You can make this hairstyle simpler by creating the halo braid in the front but with the rest of your hair simply tie it up on a bun. Take a look at the Halo braid tutorial:
A Simple Low-Knotted Bun
Perhaps you’re not one for high hairstyles like the topknot sock bun. Lower positioned knots are perfect for women who have shorter hair or round faces or simply prefer a more relaxed look. Spruce up your low bun by creating a knot. As every hairstyle, there are a lot of variations but we love a low-knotted bun with a sweep. Check out the tutorial and recreate this simple summer look.
Beautiful Side-Swept Waves
We can’t wear updo’s all summer long and after swimming in the pool, ocean or sea – long hair is naturally wavy so this is your chance to embrace the look. However, long waves and heat can be disastrous. Use some styling products or Moroccan argan oil to tame potential frizz and sweep those heat waves to one side to stay cool. If you live inland and don’t make it swimming very often then check out this great tutorial for creating heatless beach waves or make some DIY sea salt spray.
