Summer hair is hot. Unfortunately, both figuratively and literally. Scorching temperatures, humidity and long hair just aren’t an equation for comfort. So what’s the easiest way for longer-haired ladies to stay cool in the summer while still looking hot? Check out more summer styles below.
1. Half up-half down
Summer wedding? Throw it up half way to get a crazy cute frame while taking some of the hair off your neck.
2. Braid/Fishtail/Side Braid/Bang Braid
Pull a Katniss Everdeen and put your long hair in a styled braid, like this fishtail. Or braid back one side for a cool Greek look. Or go all Lauren Conrad and style a braid within a larger one for braids on braids on braids. So many options, so much hair.
3. A Big Sweep
Sweep your hair all over to one side and style a pony, leaving the top nice and fluffy. This keeps the hair off your neck and it won’t be matted to your forehead.
4. Hot Buns
Buns are my specialty, though they’re never as cool as this. Twist the front of your hair back and into a braid that sits lower on your head so the attention is on the styling, not the mess behind.
5. Top Knot
The top knot is another new favorite of mine, though usually it’s a bit lower back from my forehead. This style is so classic, like a little ballerina getting ready to dance. Plus, it gets all of your hair off your skin, which is always a bonus.
Since I coach high school hockey during the summer, my hairstyles are less about comfort and more about convenience. But the outdoors is always calling, as is my desire to travel, so easy, sexy summer hair is the key to any look I’ll want.
Lovelies, what’s your favorite summer hairstyle? Is there any other way you dress it up?
