    5 Sizzling Summer Hair Styles!

    Isn’t the weather just gorgeous at this time of year? Whilst the hot August heat feels gorgeous on your skin, it isn’t always that great for your hair. When the weather’s hot most of us are trying to stay cool (literally) and want hair styles that are easy, effortless and that look great!

    But why worry about picking great hair styles when we’ve done the work for you!

    We’ve handpicked 5 amazing summer hair styles that are bound to get you noticed but also happen to be relatively easy to do. Furthermore, these hair styles won’t have you breaking out in sweat or searching frantically for hair straighteners.

    The first sizzling summer style is the French braid. This hair style has been a go-to style for women for centuries because it enables your hair to look great irregardless of what condition it’s in. We happen to love this style because it allows your hair to be worn down without being in your face.

    Another great summer hair style is the bun. What’s great about the bun is that it can be altered to suit virtually anyone. For example if you’re more into sporting an elegant hair style, brushing your hair all back and then securing it into a bun would be perfect. If on the other hand, you prefer more edgy hair styles you could have bangs at the front of your hair and a bun at the back just like Zoe Saldana in the picture below.

    The third sizzling summer hair style is the ‘short bob.’ The bob has been a girl’s best hair-friend since . . . forever! What makes it so iconic is that it frames the face and highlights one’s facial features. The bob has been loved and adorned by celebrities such as Rihanna, Vanessa Hudgens (pictured below, Hayden Panettiere and Eva Longoria because of its simplicity. It’s a classic style that makes daily styling really, really easy.

    If you’re not in the mood to have your hair worn completely down, a simple but excellent alternative is to wear it half up and half down. Whilst there’s no fancy name for this hair style, it can certainly be fancy if you want it to be. For instance, if you’re going somewhere formal you could accessorize this style by adding flowery hair pins. If however, you’re in need of a casual look, simply pin half of your hair (the front part) into a bun or ponytail and leave the bottom out. You could also have bangs at the front.

    There are literally dozens, if not hundreds of ways in which you could wear a ponytail-that’s why we’ve chosen it as the fifth sizzling summer hair style. Ponytails are brilliant because they allow the hair line to rest and can actually be a protective hair style. Furthermore, ponytails can be worn for just about any and every occasion and are probably the most versatile of all hair styles.

    What’s great about all of these summer hair styles is that they don’t require much time to do and are perfect for those of us who are short on time. Also, hair styles like the ponytail, French braid and bun are brilliant when you’re experiencing a not-so great hair day!
