10 sexy summer hair inspiration
Summer’s got your hair tied up in a ponytail? Take your hairstyle to the next level with these sexy summer hair inspiration.
We get it. It’s going to get so hot and humid out there that you can’t help but get sucked into the mundanity of that ponytail routine. But before you hastily gather your hair up and surrender to the dog days of summer… stop, the season’s too short for a boring pony.
Resist the temptation and stay (and look) cool in the summer heat with these 10 hair inspiration.
Low, sleek ponys
Oh look, a ponytail with a twist. Transform your traditional ponytail from casual to chic with a sleek, sharp parting (centre or side, you decide). Swap out your regular black hair tie and amp up with a classy hairpiece for that summer bash.
French braids, crown braids, side braids, fishtail braids — braids keep your tresses all locked in and away from the sweltering heat. Lauren Conrad (left) keeps her fringe out of her face while Selena Gomez (right) keeps her hairdo summer sexy.
This look requires a bit of product but delivers a whole lot of cool. Slicked back from your forehead and let down loose at the back — no partings needed — this super-sleek hairstyle complements a strong make-up look.
A cheat style for naturally frizzy hair, these layered, tousled care-free waves make you look like you’ve been frolicking by the beach. Here’s a tip: fake the texture with a spritz of sea-salt spray.
Keep your strands securely in place with bobby pins and don’t bother hiding them anymore. Ditch the boring blacks and flaunt the boldly coloured ones fit for summer.
High top knots
Top knots are absolute low-maintenance solutions, perfect for when you’re having the worst of bad hair days. This modern timeless style not only keeps you cool in the heat, it also adds casual-chic points to your summer get-up.
Knotted half buns
Can’t decide between getting your hair out of the way because it’s too hot and letting it down completely because you like it better like that? Come to a compromise with the knotted half bun.
The blunt bob just might be this year’s most iconic hairstyle, with stars like Karlie Kloss, Dakota Johnson and Kim Kardashian taking the chop for the bob. Blunt and choppy with no layers, get into the style crowd with this summer-proof cut.
Too hot to bother? Go short — real short. Audrey Hepburn had it, Twiggy had it, now you can have it too. The pixie cut is so easy to maintain that you barely need any time to prep it in the morning.
Jazz up your summer outfits (or hide your greasy roots) with a pretty, patterned scarf. Opt for silk ones to stay cool and look gorgeous with its natural, breathable properties.
