The 10 Best Summer Hairstyles

These quick, low-maintenance looks are perfect for the summer. When you're spending most of your day outside in the hot sun, you'll need a 'do that will keep you cool.

  1. 1

    1. The New Pixie

    The hot summer is the perfect time to chop off your long, heavy hair.

  2. 2

    Try this longer, textured look:

    Lilly Collins' pixie cut is both edgy and glamorous. If you're the type of girl who wants to go short, but still loves her locks, this style is for you! It's feminine and fabulous!

  3. 3

    Or a chic, boyish cut

    This very short haircut is incredibly cool with the side-swept fringe adding a sweet vibe to the final look. It's simple, effortless, and totally awesome. Plus, dyeing your ash blonde is light and lovely for the summer months.

    2. The Lob (Long Bob)

    Emma Stone is the queen of lobs. Her collarbone grazing waves are flirty and cute. To get this look, flip hair over and blast roots with a texturizing spray. You'll have undone waves in minutes!

  5. 5

    3. Sleek Bangs

    Bangs are back and better than ever! This style is pretty and polished, plus it adds volume to your hair. You can opt for a side swept look or sleek and straight, like Taylor. They are blunt and beautiful.

    4. Choppy Layers

    For a tousled, beachy texture, try this style. The very choppy layered look, with ragged tips and jagged outlines, gives straight hair an edgy feel.

  7. 7

    Lots and lots of layers:

    If you have medium-short hair, you must do this 'do. To style your hair, simply spritz damp hair with some sea-salt spray, pull into two loose buns and sleep in overnight. When you wake up, shake out your waves and you're ready to go. See, the summer is way too hot for a curling iron.

    5. Ponytails

    When it's sticky and sweaty outside, the best 'do is a ponytail. Make your pony look more sophisticated by wrapping the elastic with your hair or adding some fun braids.

  9. 9

    Try this super textured low-tail:

    If you're not feeling the sporty, high pony look, go for a low-tail. With a little lift and texture, this 'do is anything but basic. Mist on a volumizing spray while hair is damp and rough-dry it with your fingers while scrunching your hair throughout.

  10. 10

    6. Braids

    Loose side braids are perfect for long afternoons at the beach. Try doing a braid into the braid to give your hair more detail.

    Be one with the ocean with a fishtail braid

    7. Buns

    A tight top knot will keep you cool in the summer heat, plus it has a serious elegant feel. Get this slicked-back ballerina bun by pulling hair into a high pony, twisting the tail around the base, and securing with bobby pins.

  14. 14

    Give this half-up bun a try, too:

    Make a girly half-up style look modern with easy waves, volume at the roots (you can use some dry shampoo for that) and a twisty bun to top it off.

  15. 15

    8. Blonde Hair

    The summer is all about light and bright hair, and this platinum ash blonde color is totally in.

  16. 16

    9. Asymmetrical Hair

    Do something daring this summer, like a short haircut with long side swept layers. These cheekbone-skimming layers lend femininity to a boyish crop.

  17. 17

    10. The long flip

    Give your hair a dramatic side part. With Cara, this hairstyle shows off her angled length. Her long strands are snipped on the diagonal right at the ends.

  18. 18

    If you can, do the total flip:

    If putting your hair up is absolutely out of the question, sweep your hair completely to one side for a striking, but relaxed look.
