1. Mermaid Updo
XoMerlissa is my favorite mermadian influencer, so this hairstyle idea comes from her. There are several different “mermaid updo” ideas to choose from, but I think the double crown braids are a perfect fit!
SweetHearts Hair has an awesome tutorial that shows you how to create the same look.
2. Boxer Braids
3. Bubble Ponytail
The bubbled-out ponytail is one of my favorite mohawk hairstyles for women, and a perfect hairstyle for summer!
4. A Simple Waterfall Braid
5. The Perfect Messy Bun
Summer is ultimately about being lazy. You should do everything you can to enjoy life and not worry about the little things. That’s what makes the messy bun a perfect fit for summer. Look ultra-cute while focusing your time on having fun.
💡TIP: Use a sock bun for extra bunnage!
6. A Twisted Half-Updo
7. Side Fishtail Braid
8. Side-Wrapped Ponytail
9. Pinned To Perfection
10. Boho-Chic Updo
11. Chunky Pull-Through Braid
12. Voluptuous High Ponytail
13. Timeless Beach Waves
What would an article about summer hairstyles be without beach waves? I mean…. this style is the epitome of summer, right?
Brad Mondo (one of my absolute favorite hair gurus on YouTube) has a fabulous tutorial that teaches you multiple ways to create different beach wavy looks.
14. Blinged-Out Festival Braids
With huge events like Burning Man and Coachella picking up traction, party-worthy hairstyles are becoming more and more creative and fun.
It’s a common trend to see girls cornrowing their hair, or putting them in boxer-braids at these events (I mean… do you want to deal with hair in your face on the playa?) But to be festival-ready, you need to take it a bit further than just that.
A fun and easy way to spruce up your braids is to feed in fake hair of all different colors. It will make your braids look so much thicker and longer, and it’s really not that hard to do. If you can French braid, you can probably do this look by yourself.
Here is a fabulous tutorial by Lana Summer that shows you how simple it is.
If French braiding isn’t your jam, here’s a crazy easy way to do the same thing with a pull-through braid. This tutorial by LOZNITSA is in Russian, but it still gets the point across.
To take things a bit further, sprinkle glitter all around your hairline, mix-match different braids and put clips, jewels or flowers throughout the braids.
I think this is a perfect summer hairstyle as it keeps your hair out of your face, and also makes you look majestic AF.
15. Infinity Braids
Since the dawn of Pinterest, braids have been slowly evolving into complex Daenerys Targaryen-type styles. With that, comes creative new ways to weave the hair together to produce different looks.
One of the more popular types of braids this summer is the infinity braid (named because of its resemblance to the infinity symbol).
Don’t be deceived by its super intimidating look… it’s actually quite easy to do. Here is a super helpful tutorial by Another Braid.
The difference between the diamond shape and normal braid has to do with how much hair you bring in to the braid. HAU2 has a nice tutorial that shows you how to do a normal-proportioned braid.
How’s that for an incredibly cute summer hairstyle?
Summer is a seriously fun time of year, but it won’t last forever, so enjoy it while you can.
Embrace the season by adding a little spice to your hair. Follow these simple summer hairstyle tutorials, and I promise you can’t go wrong.
