When it's too hot to move, let alone blow-dry, curl, or straighten your hair, it's time to let the creativity flow! With a few twists, bobby pins, and very little skills, you can take your hair strands to next-level of chicness. I don't know about you, but in the summer nothing feels better than having my hair up and out of the way so here are my top 5 favourite trends. They all look doable, so switch things up a little and have fun with your beautiful summer hair!
Boho Crown Braid
Braids never go out of style, they were big in spring and they are here to stay this summer. Whilst this looks a bit complicated to accomplish, you will all agree with me that these are gorgeous and perfect for that festival, wedding or even that bbq you're attending. These work better with medium-length to long hair, so if you separate your hair in two ponytails, braid each section and pull them across your head, this is totally achievable. And, if you are looking for something a little more French (get it?), check out this tutorial (here) by Little Miss Momma for the perfect French braided crown; I love the result!
Messy Top Knot
It should be no surprise that this hairstyle made its way to this list. We all have our lazy days (aka bad hair days) where our hair just doesn't seem to want to help us out. Pushing back all hair to the top of my head and rolling it into a knot couldn't be easier and I can probably get it done with my eyes closed. I love how it instantly makes you look more polished and how it brightens up your face. Wear it with a bold lipstick for an outing or with killer long lashes for work, and of course pick your favourite earrings to top it all of.
Beach Wavy Hair
This is how we all wish to look on holiday. Plenty of sea salt spray and the sun provide beautiful carefree waves. Whether you want to leave your hair down, with a braid, or in a high bun, wavy hair can do you no wrong. And how great does the short wavy bob look?! Make like these beauties and work nonchalant hair and beauty look beach-side. Team this hairstyle with a flowy maxi dress or skirt and over-sized shades and you are sure to look like a million bucks!
This is as simple as 1, 2, 3 and all you will need is a few bobby pins. Twist your hair, and slip your bobby pin underneath to secretly pin back your strands. Pretty girly hair is what you are left with, and I personally love wearing this type of hairstyle with a cute summer dress and for work!
And last but certainly not least, these amazing accessories we should all be reaching for this summer. Flower crowns scream festivals and summer parties, whilst chains are boho chic, perfect for that dreamed beach wedding! I would wear these with my favourite off-shoulder dress and that's two trends in one go! I knooooow these may be a little out there for some, but don't they look incredibly beautiful? I bought a few on Asos recently (see here) and I can't wait to wear them on my upcoming holiday!
Tell me, how will you be wearing your hair this summer?
Thanks for reading beauties, and until next time!
