By this point in the summer, if you haven’t already thrown caution to the wind and abandoned your high maintenance hair styling routines, then you’re missing out! What’s the point in having every hair in place when you’re just going to drive around with the windows down or end up wind-blown on the beach? These three simple hairstyles are great go-to’s for summer hair that’s relaxed yet gorgeous, and so low maintenance.
- Beachy Waves: This look is super sexy any time of the year, not just summer. Luckily, it’s very simple to create too. All you need for a great beachy waves hairstyle is a little salt spray! You can buy pre-packaged stuff at the drug store, or just fill a spray bottle with water, sea salt, and a couple dollups of your favorite conditioner. Spray into the lengths of your wet hair and scrunch the ends up toward the roots. Allow the hair to dry naturally, and voila!
- Braids: Beachy waves are great for everyday, but when you want something a little more quirky or fun, braids are a great option. There are so many different ways to braid your hair and so many types of braids. A side braid is a classic that you can’t go wrong with, but we also love braided updo’s and braided half-back styles. Classic braids are simple enough that anyone can create them, but if you have the time and patience to learn to fishtail braid, it’s the look to get this summer!
- Headband: When all else fails, have a few cute headbands lying around to pop into your hair in an emergency. Sometimes all that wind, salt water, and heat can really take a toll on your hair. A brightly colored or patterned headband will help distract away from whatever’s going on with your hair and keep you looking chic. Headbands are a definite necessity to keep in your desk at work!
