4 SIMPLE SUMMER HAIRSTYLES

Summer’s still going strong, and from braids to waves to ponytails, there are so many gorgeous hairstyles that are perfect for warm weather. Read on to see four of our favorites that you can easily recreate at home!

Side Braid

Wake up with a bad hair day? The side braid is the perfect way to turn less-than-stellar hair texture into a look that will get you compliments left and right, like Zoe Saldana. First, loosely pull all of your hair to one side. Then separate into three parts and braid as you normally would (right over middle, left over middle, repeat.) Secure with an elastic and you’re set!

Beachy Waves

Nothing screams summer more than effortless beachy waves. To get the laid-back look, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, spritz your hair with a sea salt spray (like the classic Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray), sleep with your hair braided into three sections, and wake up with perfect waves in the morning!

Textured Half-Up

For something that looks like you put a lot of effort into, try a textured half-up, like Rachel Bilson’s. Start by teasing your roots with a comb and spritzing heat protectant all over. Then curl small sections with a curling iron. Pull a section from each side and pull back. Secure with an elastic and voilà!

Sleek Ponytail

A sleek pony, like Blake Lively’s, is the perfect style to rock on hot summer days when you want your hair off your neck…just make sure to use a lot of anti-frizz cream! Begin by flat ironing your hair, then applying a generous amount of Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine or any other anti-frizz product. Brush your hair up into a high ponytail, making sure it stays smooth. If you want to hide the elastic, wrap a small piece of hair around it, then secure with a bobby pin.
