33 Best Summer Hairstyles We’re Completely in Love With

ACCESSORIZED PONY: BLAKE LIVELY

High ponies are great, but dress them up with a braid that has a sparkly ribbon intertwined. It’ll look like you spent hours getting your hair styled, when it really took you less than 10 minutes! If Blake can be her own stylist for the red carpet, you can, too but make sure you have these celeb stylist tips handy.

BED HEAD CHIC: PRIYANKA CHOPRA

Is there any look that says summer more than beachy waves? Nope! Get them by spraying on some dry shampoo, running your hands through your hair, then walking out the door.

BRAID HEADBAND: TYRA BANKS

Tyra’s style looks so intricate, but it’s actually incredibly easy to pull off. Just create two braids on one side of your head (your choice), then carefully place them across the top of your head. Pin them down with bobby pins (use the same color as your hair to hide them!), and you’ll have a “natural” headband in no time.

SLEEK AND STRAIGHT: KIM KARDASHIAN WEST

Kim’s look makes her mornings pretty effortless. The key is a reliable, high-powered straightener. Bonus tip: A 1-inch flat iron allows you to get closer to your roots to achieve a pin-straight look. Make sure to spray on some heat protective spray, so your hair is safe from damage.

ALL NATURAL: VIOLA DAVIS

Summertime is the perfect time to show off your natural hair! Viola Davis rocks her bouncy curls in the best way. To achieve a look like hers, make sure to use a cleanserthat contains nourishing ingredients to smooth curls and help bind them together.

PINNED BACK: GIGI HADID

If you’re tired of dealing with flyaways or sweaty hair falling in your face this summer, just grab a few 90s-inspired clips and pin back your hair. Colorful clips are fun for the weekend, while neutral silver or gold pinsare more subdued for work.

CHOPPED PIXIE: ZOE KRAVITZ

Thinking about rocking the pixie look this summer? Don’t be afraid to get a little messy. Ask your hairstylist to cut some layers into your hair, and style it by running some wax through your tresses with your fingers for a textured look.

THE EDGY PONY: LUCY HALE

It looks like Lucy Hale is wearing a sleek pony from the front, but when she turns around, there’s a party going on in the back. If you’re sick of regular ponytails, try braiding a mohawk down the center of your head, then tightly secure everything with a hair tie.

BOUNCY CURLS: KAT GRAHAM

Don’t be afraid to rock a more natural style this summer by taking full advantage of your natural curls. To keep the heat from ruining your look, work some mousse into your hair, scrunching your curls as you go.

THE WAVY PONY: SHAY MITCHELL

Ready for a simple style that will only take a few minutes to do? Pull your hair back into a low ponytail, then create some soft waves with a 1½-inch curling wand à la Shay Mitchell.

SLICKED-BACK WAVES: MANDY MOORE

Let your hair air-dry into beachy waves, then pull it back behind your ears — it’s the ultimate beat-the-summer-heat style.

THE TWISTED HALF-UP: CAMILA CABELLO

It’s easy to add a little texture to a half-up ‘do: Just twist some hair back on each side of your head and secure with a few bobby pins.

THE LOOPED BUN: CIARA

Leave it to Ciara to make everyone’s favorite lazy-day hairstyle look flawless. This looped low bun is easy to recreate — and will only take you seconds to do.

THE PUSHED-BACK PIXIE: SCARLETT JOHANSSON

If you have a shorter cut, steal Scarlett’s lazy-girl look by simply giving your hair a little texture with some wax like Quai Matte Pomade and pushing it back with your fingers. It’s that easy!

THE TOP KNOT: KARRUECHE TRAN

Perhaps one of the easiest summer hairstyles ever, a top knot like Karrueche’s will keep your hair out of your face all day long.

THE BRAIDED PONY: JESSICA ALBA

Love braids? Then Jessica’s style might become your new go-to. Just braid the portion of your hair at the back of your neck, then wrap it into a side pony. Make it look more polished by wrapping a chunk of hair around the base.

THE HALF-UP, HALF-DOWN: BLAKE LIVELY

This classic, easy look is back. Blake made the half-up, half-down ‘do chic again by keeping her hair nice and sleek on top and showing off some effortless waves on the bottom.

DEEP SIDE PART: ANNE HATHAWAY

For medium length hair, a slightly slanted side part is super soft and sexy. Use a texturizing balm to slick back the hair on one side to create a dramatic effect.

TEXTURED MODERN BANGS: DAKOTA JOHNSON

Dakota’s casual fringe is chunky yet wispy; to keep yours looking its best, control the oil transfer between your face and hair with a dry shampoo (like Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk) so your bangs look messy.

THE MODERN 60S BUN: KERRY WASHINGTON

Modern, but oh-so-relaxed, Kerry’s sky-high bun is a cinch to pull together. To create this style, blow dry your hair first with a volumizing spray, recommends hairstylist Tasha Brown. Then she says to pull all the hair back into a tight ponytail, which you’ll then wrap around the base of the pony tightly, securing your bun with a bungee style ponytail holder. “You need a really solid base to hold this hairstyle together,” Brown emphasizes, adding that regular holders won’t do the trick. Once finished, you can pull a few pieces of hair out of the bun to create the modern, undone look.

THE BREEZY LOB: COURTENEY COX

Fine hair is much more manageable when chopped to a shoulder-skimming style, and it makes crafting beachy waves a breeze. Use a volmunizing spray for some texture without any stiffness.

THE SOFTENED CENTER PART: ALISON BRIE

Center parts are everywhere right now, and they can look great if done right. Always try out a new part at home first, advises Brown, and have a flat iron handy in case your hair needs to be quickly tamed and smoothed; you don’t want any ripples coming up in your hair. Use a little pomadeto train a stubborn new part.

IMPERFECT BOB: RIHANNA

To create the piece-y, punkish vibe Rihanna rocks with her bob, Brown says: “Start with an anti-humidity treatment. Then use a flat iron until you get to the bottom 1/3 of your hair and then at the ends, flip and turn the iron, alternating a little out and in to create the texture.”

ACCENT BRAIDS: BRIE LARSON

Brie’s French braid is a great way to keep unwanted hair out of the face on hot, sticky days. If you’re not confident about your braiding abilities, you can always do a 2-strand twist and lock it into place with 2 bobby pins in an X-formation. Never just use one pin, because it’ll slide off, says Brown.

THE LOOSE LOB: ROSE BYRNE

For Rose’s loose curls, Brown says to wrap random pieces of hair around a curling iron starting at your cheek level and making sure you alternate the direction of the wrap with each piece. As you wrap remember to leave the ends out for a truly piece-y, messy look. Finish by flipping your hair upside down and shaking it to break up curls. Finish with hairspray to hold, then flip back over.

THE PRINCESS PONY: KATE MIDDLETON

Give your classic pony royal status by setting it semi-loosely at mid-height (aim for the center of the back of your head). For instant polish, pull out a wide section of hair — your looser setting makes this a breeze — and wrap around the base of the pony. Secure with bobby pins to hide your hair elastic.

THE ROMANTIC BUN: LINDSEY VONN

Pull wavy hair into a low bun (make a fishtail braid first if your hair is long enough), but leave a few loose strands in the front for a wispy effect. A pretty barrette completes the look.

THE SOFT PONY: GINA RODRIGUEZ

When the temps skyrocket, put down the tools and work with your natural hair texture. Pull wavy hair into a high ponytail — and don’t worry about slicking down the sides. The extra movement makes the look more relaxed.

THE NEW PIXIE: JENNIFER HUDSON

Jennifer’s bang-heavy pixie cut is great for those ready to commit to an all-about-your-face look.

THE WRAPAROUND PONY: MINDY KALING

You worked hard for that healthy, shiny hair, so show it off this season. Make a deep side part, then pull hair into a ponytail over the opposite shoulder for a balanced look.

THE CALIFORNIA BEDHEAD: BETH BEHRS

Higher temps call for fun-in-the-sun texture and the best “I woke up like this” look. Get it with a bit of texturizing spray and bangs that sweep across one brow.
