Summer is one of the best times to change to a new look. It is a time to try out the latest trends. When it comes to hairstyles, there are countless options to choose from to match your personality. Whether you want to go short, medium or long, summer hairstyles offer a relaxing and cool look that will work well in the sizzling summer heat.
Sweepy Bangs Pixie Cut
Shortening your hair is ideal for summer to help cool you down. Besides, shorter hair means less upkeep is needed. Cut your hair ultra short to create a pixie cut by thinning the back of your hair using razor or pinking shears. Trimming around the ears will expose them. Leave enough fringes to create bangs that you sweep to one side over your forehead. Applying styling mousse and firm-hold hairspray will help tame your sweepy bangs and hold them in place
Modern Bob Cut
A modern bob cut is a variation of the classic bob cut first introduced in 1915. With a modern bob cut, you can go medium or short, angled or asymmetrical. The angled bob cut is a type of bob that has one side sleek and long while the other side is still sleek, but a little shorter. The asymmetrical bob cut, on the other hand, has a short back and longer front. Adding layers to the back adds visual interest to an asymmetrical bob cut.
Messy Medium Hairstyle
Since the 1980s, the messy hairdo has made a huge comeback. The goal is to have a messy appearance that still looks appealing. The messy medium hairstyle is appropriate for casual occasions.
To create the look, cut your hair at shoulder length and create fringes that you can sweep to one side. Create layers and spikes that you can “mess” up. Keep your hair straight or add little waves using rollers or a 1-inch barrel curling iron. Apply styling mousse or wax to help create a messy look. Make sure to lift the spikes and mess up the layers by using your fingers. Pull the spikes as you tousle your hair. Avoid using a comb or brush so that the result is messy. Sweep your bangs to one side and apply firm-hold hairspray to keep the spikes up. The final look should result in a windblown appearance as if you just drove a top-down car on a windy day.
Super Wavy Long Hairstyle
Cutting layers through your long locks will make the waves flow better when added. Add highlights and lowlights to your hair to add depth to it. Blow dry hair after washing; use a large paddle brush to remove knots and tangles. Part your hair a little to one side so you can sweep your hair in that direction. Separate your hair into six sections and use heated rollers or 2-inch barrel curling iron to create waves. Apply hairspray so the waves will last all day.
