This hairstyle is casual enough for beach-goers and summer walks and formal enough for weddings, graduation parties and picnics. Add a headband to accessorize or a flower. There are plenty of options with this look so play around with it and find the look that works for you.
Sticking with he braid theme, because they are the essential summer hairstyle, a braided ponytail. Pull all of your hair back and create some volume around the back of your crown and create a high ponytail. Then simply braid the ponytail in a traditional 3-strand braid of a fishtail braid.
Headband Hairstyles for Teens
When you are choosing a hairstyle for your summertime events, one of the best options is to create a simple hairstyle with a headband. Headbands are tremendously versatile so you should choose one that matches your face shape. Oval faces look great with big headbands, round faces look best with flat headbands or one that creates volume and heart-shaped faces look best with a thin headband.

Tousled Beach Waves
Nothing says summertime like beach waves. Whether they are from the actual beach or some purchased sea salt spray, beach waves are the simplest hairstyle. These work well for every length of hair but they’re best for longer hair. The best thing about beach waves is that they don’t have to be flawless, the can be messy, tousled and even knotty and they look super.
