Hair Cuts To Rock This Summer (And Beyond)

Hair Cuts To Rock This Summer (And Beyond)

Sun-hot and sea-cool styles you might want to wear all year round

 

 

Because it’s getting hotter by the day and it’s probably been months since you last got your hair cut. Here, styles to choose from and how to wear ‘em:

 

The Long

So you don’t want a cut, but rather style options for your long, mermaid hair

Tie it Braid it Wear it all the way up

Get the look:

Upgrade the basic ponytail and wear it sleek and high. Apply smoothening hair product and gather hair up towards the back of your crown. Keep it in place with elastics or a scrunchie. Then flat iron the tail and secure the look with hairspray. Hair accessories optional

Get the look:

Prep hair with hair oil, part at the center and then divide into two equal parts. Work on one side first starting with small sections and divide that into three. Begin your Dutch braid* and add hair to the outside strands as you braid all the way down to the nape of neck (or all the way to the ends for boxer braids**). Tie with elastic to secure then repeat on the other side. Pro tip: Tame flyaways with styling balm

Get the look: Pull hair into a high ponytail (tip: whip hair down so it’s easier to gather close to the top of your head). Divide the tail in two sections, add styling product for flyaways then wrap sections around each other. Finally, wrap hair around hair tie and secure with bobby pins. Polish with hairspray

*Basically an inverted French braid, wherein you cross the two outside strands under the middle instead of over

**To Boxer braid: Work on one of the two sections from your Dutch braid and do an inverted Fishtail braid. Repeat on the other side

 

For more topknot variations, we looked no further than hairstylist Jen Atkin’s tutorials (clientele includes: Kardashian-Jenners, Christy Turlington, Kaia Gerber and her mom Cindy, Hailey Baldwin, Emily Ratajkowski, the Hadid sisters, etc.)

 

The Short Of It

There’s no other easier, not to mention chic-er style to pull off than the classic bob. Case in point, Selena Gomez’s new, (post-Bieber) hair:

And of course, new mom Lizz Uy’s shorter bob:

Get the look: Seriously, don’t fuss about it, and just wash and wear. Rake through wet hair with serum and let it air dry. For dry hair, limit washing to every other day to bring out hair’s natural shine (even Queer Eye’s Jonathan says so!) Tip: use dry shampoo to soak up excess grease and dirt, and to keep hair smelling terrific Get the look: Style the look straight from washing, add product (Pro tip: use something like L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Glue and not setting product) and smooth hair from front to back. Use a comb if you want to part hair at the center or side. Lastly, smooth out comb lines with fingers

 

 

 

Just Take It All Off

We heard someone say, “it’s a liberating experience to not have to hide behind your hair.” So if you have the guts for it, go ahead. Meanwhile, here are some of the girls who’ve rocked this look:
