Low Maintenance Hairstyles for Summer

Spend less time worrying about your hair this summer and more time enjoying the warm weather. These looks not only come together in a matter of minutes, but look as gorgeous as they are effortless.

Bed Head Chic

No other look says summer like loose waves. Whether you are heading to the beach or for a night out with friends, messy undone curls are the perfect hairstyle for any occasion. You can achieve this look by simply spraying on some dry shampoo and running your hands through your hair. Tip: avoid using a curling iron to keep your hair from drying out from the heat.

The Wet Look

The wet hair look is one of this year’s biggest trends. Plus, you don’t actually need to leave the house with sopping wet hair. It’s simply achieved with gel!  For added texture, we recommend scrunching and working the gel into your ends with your fingers. To avoid looking greasy, just start with a small amount of gel and add more as needed.

The Wavy Pony

A wavy ponytail is a gorgeous look that is as effortless as it is cool. Great for the summer, this look pulls your hair out of your face and takes less than five minutes to achieve. Just pull your hair back into a low ponytail then create some soft waves with a curling iron. For added sophistication, part your hair down the middle to create sleek lines.

The Top Knot

Not only is a top knot one of this year’s easiest hairs trends to achieve, it’s also one of the funnest. Begin making the look by pulling your hair into a high ponytail, then wrap your hair around the base and secure it with a hair tie. That’s it!

Half Up Half Down

Want a hairstyle that is both classic and laid back? The half up half down look is the best of both worlds; making your hair on top look sleek and sophisticated and showing off effortless waves on the bottom. This style is a real head turner and is perfect for any occasion from special events to more subdued for the office.
