Easy Summer Hairstyles to Wear at the BeachJuly 01, 2021
While we love the warm weather, the feeling of heavy hair on our neck is less than desirable in the summer heat. Thankfully, there are tons of fuss-free, super easy hairstyles you can do in five minutes or less (think: fun braids, sleek buns and heatless curls). So before you head out for a walk, lay in your backyard or chill by the pool or beach this summer, keep reading, because we’re rounding up some summer hair inspo that’ll have you cooled down and looking cute, ahead.
Natural Braided Look
If you have natural hair, you’ll love this easy and conditioning style. Content creator Mini Marley washed and deep conditioned her hair and before sectioning it off into two French braids, then pinned the braids together at the back of her head. We recommend adding an extra boost of moisture with the Carol’s Daughter Monoi Repairing Leave-in Conditioner.
For an easy, polished look, sweep your hair back into a sleek low bun. Paige Lietzmann achieved her super-smooth look by using gel to slick down any flyaways. We like to reach for the Garnier Fructis Style Pure Clean Styling Gel.
Short hair cuties, rejoice! This easy braided style was made to tame shoulder-length hair or shorter. It’s also great for adding volume to fine hair — plus, you’ll be left with pretty waves after you let the braids down.
It’s hard to believe that Shonagh Scott used just the tie from her robe to achieve these bouncy, beachy curls, but that’s really all she did! Her heatless curling method is an easy way to wake up with tons of volume and defined curls. Wear them loose or tie them up for a pretty, tousled updo.
