Summer is the perfect time to try out a fun, new look, whether it’s going shorter to keep your hair off your neck in the hot summer heat or just mixing things up. Here are our top picks for the best new summer hairstyles trends for 2017.
1. The “Lob”
Aka the long bob. A long bob is a great medium between chopping all your hair off and keeping the heavy long hair. A nice trendy bob can be lightly tousled or straightened for a different look and is still long enough to pull into a ponytail or a topknot on really hot days.
2. The Pixie Cut
If you’re looking for a dramatic shift, going full pixie cut like Scarlett Johansson is a great way to make a statement and stay cool in the heat and humidity. It can also take minutes off your morning routine, no hair dryer necessary! You can even take some gel and slick it back to mix it up for a night out on the town.
3. Beachy Waves
If you’re not ready to get rid of the length, leaning into the heat and humidity with beachy waves, a la Blake Lively, is a great style that’s fun, low-maintenance and manageable even in the hottest of heat waves. A little bit of mousse, a mid-size curling iron and some texturizer is the perfect recipe for this look.
4. Add Accessories
For those days when your hair just has to be up, including some fun hair accessories is a great way to dress it up. Adding some metal barrettes or a nice ribbon can smarten up even the drabbest topknot and make it your own style. Who knows, maybe butterfly clips are on the way back in? (Then again, maybe not.)
5. Round, Tousled Look
For those with thicker or curly hair, a round cut with shaggy bangs can help thin out the hair for summer and get rid of some of the weight. It’s also super easy to style, not generally requiring heat. The key here is lots of different layers, some rising above the ear, and staying short at the neckline. If you’re looking for fresh summer hairstyles, these are some great, trendy looks to try out.
