Super Summer Hairstyles
That's a Wrap!
Nothing tames long hair in hot, humid and windy conditions like winding it up into a bun. A bun is a summer look that goes with shorts, a summer dress or swimwear. It can be dressed up or down and can be undone at any point in the day to release long, curly locks. A side benefit of wrapping up your hair is that it also protects much of it from the sun's harmful rays and prevents it from drying out.
As long as you manage your curls with the right product and avoid overheating your hair with hot irons and blow dryers, putting cute curls throughout the back and sides of your hair can be a great summer hairstyle if you have a bob or longer hair. It's also a versatile look that you can wear from the office to the beach and out to dinner.
Ride the Wave
Summer is often a more laid-back time of the year, and there are times when your hair can match. Use less heat and fewer products and go for a more natural, tousled look that makes it look like you just came from the beach, even if you have been hard at work all day. Wrap wet hair in a bun and release layers of curls to fall freely once they have dried. Many hair care companies have caught on to the trend and created products that allow you to style your hair into carefree waves.
