Style Guide: Four Easy Hairstyling Tips For Summer

Summer can be quite tricky in pulling off the hairstyle of your dreams, mainly because it can get pretty hot and humid. This leaves us wanting to settle for a ponytail most days, but luckily we've got you covered with these simple tips and breezy styles that will be the cherry on top of your summer-ready outfits!

Here are four easy hairstyling tips to get you through the summer...

Classic Summer Beach Waves

Regardless if it’s spring, summer, or even winter or fall, beach waves are always a low maintenance option and a modern hairstyle that’s very flattering for all. 

Fortunately, achieving beach waves is much easier than you may think. The trick is in the products, so be sure to seek out the best that will hold the waves and add the texture needed for you specific hair type.

Tie It Up With A Scarf

Looking for that perfect summer hair accessory? All you need to do is dig in your dresser for those scarves that you barely use. Instead of tying up them around your neck, use them as a headband to complement your hairstyle, whether it’s a pony, top knot, or even having it all down.

Using a scarf as a hairstyling accessory gives off boho-chic vibes with a hint of retro as well. Go all out and mix and match the patterns and colors in your scarf with your ensemble for the day!

Invest In A Wet Brush 

If you're wondering what the heck a "wet brush" is, this will be a game changer for you! A wet brush not only does a great job of detangling your hair without that painful pulling or tugging feel, but it also prevents your fragile wet hair from breaking. It’s a must-have accessory on your dresser, especially for days when your hair gets a heavy dose of extra frizz thanks to the humidity.

A quality wet brush does have a slightly higher price tag compared to your regular brush or comb, but trust us when we say that your hair will benefit from this worthy investment!

Learn To Love The Top-Knot

When all else fails, just pull it all up! Yes, we’re talking about the good old classic top-knot, which gives you that instant carefree and edgy look. Don’t believe us? Just check out how your favorite celebs look on their “days off” and you’ll see a lot of them sporting this go-to hairstyle.

There are two ways that you can pull off this off-duty look. You can either opt to go sleek and clean without a hanging tendril in sight, or you can let loose and have some hair or bangs effortlessly fall on the sides of your beautiful face.
