Summer is here and you are ready to embrace the sun-kissed, cloudless, care-free days, but what about your hair? Still have the same shoulder length straight cut you did two years ago? Looking for a fresh and effortless way to update your look this season? We give you the top two simple yet totally hot hairstyles for you to try this summer.
1. The Lob
The lob is essentially a long-bob style with the tips of the strands slightly above, or just grazing the shoulder bones. This hairstyle can be worn sleek and straight for a more classy look, or wavy and textured for a more casual yet equally chic look. The best part of the lob is that it looks great with all hair textures!
Super long tresses
This one is pretty simple; long, healthy natural hair is in again! Grow out your hair and wear it down to the beach, and totally nail the boho beachy waves look. For a more formal event, wear it in a simple elegant high ponytail. If you are feeling exceptionally fearless, add some choppy bangs to your long hair for a unique look.
Sometimes the best way to refresh your look is to try out a new hairstyle. Roberta Constantino, writer for swide.com, tells us about some trendy hairstyles that can inspire a new look for this Winter season.
First on the list is the sexy short hair bob. If you’re tired of your long hair and you want a look that’s more manageable, the short hair bob could be the perfect solution. Try it with bangs, and if you’re looking for a more glamorous effect, Constantino suggests gelling the bangs back for an ultra-sleek look.
If you’re ready to be a little more daring and change up your look completely, perhaps its time to try out the short boyish haircut. Constantino mentions that this boyish haircut can give you the opportunity to bring out your femininity in a different way, such as through your makeup choice.
If you love your long hair and you want to know the best way to style it this winter season, it’s all about adding soft volume to your unstructured cut. Try using a large medium sized curling iron to get the perfect, luscious, and wavy curls. Another tip is if you tease your hair at the roots you get an extra burst of volume.
Last but not least, if your hair is really long try adding different length layers to make it a bit more intriguing. My favorite thing about having long hair is experimenting with different styles. If you’re in an ultra feminine mood, curl your hair and let it hang past your shoulders.
If you want a slick look, straighten your hair to perfection. If you want a more casual, effortless look you can opt for a high ponytail, a side braid, or a messy bun. The options are endless when you’ve got long hair. Try putting on a headband for some extra flair.
