4 Easy Hairstyles for the Summer

As the days warm up, styling hair, especially with heat tools, can seem like a chore. This is why I tend to lean towards easy hairstyles in the summer. They effectively keep my hair out of the way, and there are so many interesting and fun styles! Read on to see which fresh and fun hairstyles you can try this season! 

Easy Braided Ponytail

This is such an easy hairstyle to pull off, and the best thing about it is that it works best for hair that’s unwashed for two or even three days. The braided ponytail keeps hair from sticking to your face and neck, making it perfect for warmer days. Plus, the volume gives this hairstyle a whimsical quality and keeps it from looking too rigid.

When you’re really short on time, a high ponytail is definitely a great way to keep your hair from getting in the way. To spice things up, try adding a scarf to the look—it instantly elevates the whole hairstyle!

If you’re opting for a more elegant or refined look for work or school, try a low ponytail. To help it stand out more, you can always tie a small ribbon around the base of the ponytail. 

Half Up with a Braid

One of my favorites is this half updo with a braid. It’s super easy to pull off, and the braids make it look like you spent a lot of time on your hair, when in reality, this look probably only takes five minutes.
