for members of Midtown magazine’s team.
Ah, the season of sun is back. A time of outdoor fun full of sun, sand, and sweat. Okay, obviously not the last one, but it is the inevitable price of summer’s heat and humidity. And how difficult is it to appreciate a summer cookout when your hair feels all sweaty and messy? No worries: Summer styles are trending cool, even for longer locks.
You can simply strap on a few extra hair bands and then, stress not, as we’ve got some easy fixes for you. You might not even have to resort to the big chop. Let’s try three simple styles to keep you looking fresh and fashionable in the summer, without embarking on a major hair makeover:
The ponytail never goes out of style, but it is about time we make the everyday style feel updated. Try a polished, low ponytail as the staple look this summer, and add a French braid at the root or finish the sleek look with a fishtail at the end.
Another way to get every stray piece of hair tucked away is with braids. Try a double French-braided bun, with an accessory to complete the look. Leave a few loose strands in the front for a wispy effect.
And for all you naturally curly and wavy-haired beauties, a half up, half down hairstyle is an effortless look that can be paired with any cute summer dress. It’s the perfect look when you want it out of your face, but still want the length.
And remember: It’s time to send your hair straightener on vacation, because you just can’t live with those hot tools when it is this sweltering outside. Experiment with your individuality and your hair’s natural texture.
Whether you’re seeking a dramatic new look or just a tweak to freshen up your image, try one of our styles to help you beat the heat this summer!
