June 16, 2021

2 Min read

Here’s the deal. Summer is right around the corner, and you’ve got your looks planned out down to what socks match what sneakers and what color nails go with what purse. But what about your hair? Simply switching from ponytail to “down” depending on how hot it is outside might have cut it in the past, but not anymore. This year, why not shake things up? No drastic changes needed. 

There are so many ways to brighten up your hair looks that don’t require hundreds of dollars in your colorists’ chair, or sacrificing all of your precious winter growth. When it comes to summer hairstyles, it’s all about creating looks with what you have and approaching classic styles with a fresh eye. Add in some on-trend hair accessories, and you’ve got everything you need to make sure your summer hair is complimenting all those amazing outfits you’ve been planning. Check out some inspiration, below.

Braids but better

We have nothing against regular double or single braids, BUT why not shake things up this summer by using braids as a fun accent? Smaller braids are a fun way to frame your face or add texture when you’re wearing it down. They keep hair out of your eyes, and are conveniently super on-trend this summer.



This ‘90s trend is back and better than ever.  Barrettes come in all shapes and sizes and can be used to create a whole lot of different styles. From the classic butterfly clips to some updated colorful and textural versions, barrettes are a “Clueless-chic” go to this summer.


Slicked back

Nothing elevates a bun or ponytail more than pairing them with  slicked back hair. One of the more elegant trends for summer, slicked back hair is perfect for a fancy dinner date with the ladies or just grabbing tacos on the street. This style is  so versatile but no matter what outfit you pair it with, always super classy.


Claw clips

One of the great things about hair claws is that they do all of the styling work for you. Insanely perfect for hot summer days when you want your hair off your back with zero effort AND for it to still look stylish and intentional.


Accessories galore

Ribbons, feathers, and flowers—oh my! If you watched 1000 YouTube hair tutorials during quarantine, it’s time to finally put all of that extraneous knowledge to good use. Now is the time to break out the feather extensions, extravagant ribbon updo styles, and load up on shiny accessories. Everyone is dressing to impress this summer, and our hair is one of the most major accessories.
