Waves are an easy way to add a romantic twist to your look and to give you a softer appearance to see you through the summer. This look is easier to achieve than you might think. The foundation of this summer hairstyle is to wash your hair with a hydrating shampoo and use a styling spray or mousse for extra hold while your hair is still damp.
Braid your hair to achieve a natural curl before allowing it to dry overnight. You don’t want to braid your hair too tightly as this can irritate your scalp, but you want it to be tight enough to hold a curl. This method of using a braid will give you hair a tousled texture when you undo the braid in the morning.
If you’re in a rush and don’t have time to let your hair dry overnight, you can achieve a similar look with a curling wand. You want to divide your hair up into one-inch sections after drying it, focusing the curl on the mid-length of your hair. For this natural looking wave, you want to keep the ends of your hair curl-free for a natural look.
You can avoid adding too much volume to your roots by starting the curling iron two inches from the start of the hair shaft. If you start the curl higher than this, it can make your hair appear shorter than it is. Once the curls have formed, you can break up the waves by running your fingers through them and using a blow drying. You can add in a styling cream to smooth our any summer frizz and add definition to your curls for all day styling.
If you’re aiming for a messier and beach inspired look, you can add extra texture to your hair using a salt spray as a finishing product.
One of our go-to hairstyles for summer is a loose and low ponytail. It’s one of the easiest and most effortless looks that you can easily achieve with just a few tools. If your hair starts to suffer under the summer heat, a low ponytail is an easy solution to help you get it back under control. A sleek low ponytail works for almost any occasion, whether you’re heading out to a wedding or working from home.
You can use extra products to help enhance the natural texture of your hair for an effortless look and to boost the appearance of your curls or waves. When it comes to creating a sleek ponytail, you need to choose a parting that works for your face shape. If in doubt, a centre parting works best for most face shapes.
When you’re creating your parting, you want to put your chin down to create tension at your neck. Take your hair back into allow ponytail using your fingers, making it easier to secure the ponytail at the right spot.
While this hairstyle is one of the most understated and easiest to create, you can take it up a level by using the right accessories. You can use everything from scarves to scrunchies and bows to give your low ponytail and embellished twist. If you have thinner or finer hair, you might decide to use a clip or barrette to secure your hair instead of trying to wear an oversized accessory. An accessory can help you take this effortless summer hairstyle and make it appropriate for any special occasion.
Once you have your ponytail in place, tong the ends in large sections to add extra volume to your strands.
Braids are a go-to look every time that summer rolls around. Whether you’re heading to the beach or sipping cocktails at your local pub, braids are always a good idea. The best thing about braids is that they stop your hair tangling, especially if you’re prone to sweating in the heat. While there are hundreds of different braids for you to choose from, it’s often best to keep it simple with a minimalistic style like a simple rope braid. This style of braid works for all hair types and lengths.
You can create this easy beach braid by applying a hair oil to hydrate your hair, with a styling cream to help hold its shape. If you’re planning on heading out to spend the day in the sun, you’ll want to add a UV-filter hairspray to help protect your hair from sun damage and to ensure you can keep it looking healthy and with a natural glossy shine.
Once you’ve finished treating your hair, you want to section it into two parts and twist each section in the same direction before wrapping them around each other in the opposite direction from the original twist. You can secure your braid in place tiwh a thin hair tie or a scrunchie if you want a more elevated look.
If you’re committed to your long hair, you want to find a way to make it more manageable to take you from day to night. With the heat and humidity, it’s only natural that you want to put your hair up and out of your face. No one wants their hair sticking to them during the summer.
The top knot is a hybrid between a messy bun and the signature half-up and half-down hairstyle. It’s chicer than your classic topknot and will effortlessly take you from day to night. You want to run a smoothing cream through your curls before starting or use an anti-humidity spray to prevent frizz from forming on your hair.
Not everyone wants to pull their hair back all the way, especially as it leaves your face on full view. After you form the top knot, you can pull a few bits of hair loose to let it hang around the front of your hair. The easiest way to create the top knot is to take your hair into a ponytail and secure it to the top of your head before twisting it into a messy bun, without making it too tight. You’ll want to keep some grips in your hair to help it stay in place.
Another updo that you want to consider for summer is the minimalistic and modern look. It’s all about getting your hair out of your face and into a textured bun. This hairstyle is perfect for using on day-old hair as the grit helps give your hair extra staying power. You can use a dry shampoo or a volumizing spray to create the same effect if your hair is still looking fresh.
You can create this updo by pulling your hair into a mid-height ponytail before twisting it up into a bun. Pin the twist loosely in place, letting the ends sit freely. The trick with this hairstyle is to pull out pieces of hair from around your hairline, especially around the sides of your face and near your ears to give an effortless look.

Frizz hair can be a nightmare during the summer. The humidity, combined with your naturally frizzy hair, can be a girl’s worst nightmare when the temperatures start to rise. Frizz is when your hair doesn’t align straight and is caused by moisture that swells-up your hair. Your hair naturally becomes frizzier as the humidity around you goes above the level of moisture and water in your hair. Whether you’re indoor or outdoors, your hair naturally absorbs moisture from the air. After your hair has consumed all this moisture, it starts to swell and become frizz.
