The best summer hairstyles are easy to manage, fun, and sexy. No matter what your hair type you can find a great summer hairstyle that plays up your best features. Men and women alike need a great summer hairstyle and there are many different types of fun styles to take advantage of.
Short and Light
One fun hairstyle for summer, for either men or women, is a short and light style. Men can cut the hair short all over while leaving the top layers a bit longer and shaggy. Women can cut a below the ear bob with many different layers that create a shaggy yet sexy summer look. Both men and women can add light blond highlights, strategically placed, that give a sun kissed look to the hairstyle.
For men and women with longer hair the ponytail is the best summer hairstyle. There are several reasons why. First, it keeps the hair pulled back, out of your face, and off your neck. This translates into a cool hairstyle with minimal work. Also, ponytails are easy for women and can go from casual to classy with just a little bit of styling gel and a pretty clip or pin. The same goes for men who can gel the hair before putting it in a ponytail for a classier look. Overall, ponytails are a fun summer hairstyle that work really well for men and women, are versatile, and don’t require a major change in hairstyle. Some strategically placed highlights can further enhance the cool summer style of the ponytail.
Half Up, Half Down
A fun summer style for women is the half up, half down style. Lots of women like to wear their hair down, but in the summer this is more of a challenge thanks to the heat and wind. But, a half up, half down style allows for a “down” look while keeping the hair out of the face and the woman cool. This look is achieved by pulling the top portion of the hair into a ponytail, clip, or barrette and securing it. The bottom portion of the hair should be left loose. This look is fun, flirty, and above all cool for the summertime.
Another great summer style for women is the braided look. This works for women with medium to long hair styles. The hair can easily be pulled into a low ponytail and braided, French braided, corn rowed, and more. There are so many different ways to braid hair that women can experience with different types of braids and styles. It’s a fun and flirty style and really keeps the hair out of one’s face and keeps hair maintenance to a minimum.
A great look for men during the summer is a shaved head, or else a really short cut. The benefit of this cut is that it is very cool, dries super fast, and requires no effort. Men who have a busy summer schedule or who just can’t be bothered with styling their hair will really love the shaved look. It’s a cool summer style that is fun for the hot months and can easily be grown out for the winter months.
