Summer hairstyles

Summer is a great time to try a new hairstyle whether it is short, medium, or long. Try wearing a timeless classic cut, something fun and funky by adding a touch of sun kissed color with new highlights, or just wearing your current hairstyle in a new and different way. Break out a fresh, confident you with new summer hairstyles. Here are a few ideas for summer hairstyles to help you break out of the winter shell.

Long Hairstyles

If you have very long hair, no doubt you have worked hard to achieve that look and you may be very attached to it… and that is okay. You can still liven up your look for the summer while keeping your luscious length just with a few simple modifications. Consider lightening up your look for summer with some highlights; a few small strands for a subtle look or large chunks for something a little more dramatic. You can also add body and texture to long summer hairstyles by simply layering it a bit, which also offers greater versatility in the many ways in which long hairstyles can be worn.

Medium-Length Hairstyles

While many of us would love to be able to maintain a long hairstyle, it is not always practical or flattering for everyone. Medium-length hairstyles offer a similar look and feel as long hairstyles do, while simultaneously being a little easier to manage and a little more versatile to style. You can achieve a similar effect with highlights and layering while wearing your hair up when you like. Medium-length hairstyles typically offer more volume potential and body than longer hairstyles, which many women find preferable and more comfortable.

Short Hairstyles

If you are accustomed to wearing your hair short or you currently have a medium or long length hair and are thinking of going for a big change in your summer hairstyle, short styles offer tons of fun and a huge amount of versatility when it comes to changing your look. They can be worn in so many ways; from fresh and fun to sleek and sassy. Short hairstyles are not for everyone, but most women can pull them off successfully by choosing a style that accents their most desirable facial features.

Up-Dos

With long or medium-length hairstyles, sometimes no dramatic action is needed to completely change a look. A dramatic, sweeping up-do are great summer hairstyles for women that add class to any long or medium-length style; while a loose, casual bun can add a flirty touch to the hair. And, honestly, some days it is great to be able to throw it all up into a ponytail and forget about it!

There are so many ways you can liven up your look for summer, no matter what current hairstyle you have or what new hairstyle you might choose. Just make sure you stick with a look that you will be comfortable with in the long run; something that you will feel good about all summer long. When you know your hair looks great, it is easy to show off that fresh, confident, summertime goddess within!
