Hairstyles can be tricky to keep interesting on a regular day let alone a summer day. To overcome the heat, sweat, and strenuous activities that come with the luxury of summer, here are 10 summer hairstyle hacks that everyone is trying.
Braids for days! Braid crowns, dutch braids, french braids, braids make life so much easier. They’re simple enough that they can be incorporated into a quick morning routine, but they also keep your hair away from the back of your neck and face preventing that sticky look that comes with the heat of summer.
2. No Heat Curls
Curls are to die for in the summer but most of the time that stubborn humidity just won’t let them live. One of my favourite summer hairstyle hacks is the no heat curls. They take almost no time at all so even if they don’t last, you won’t have to feel bad about wasting all that time in the morning getting that perfect curl.
3. DIY Ombre
Ombre has been popular for a couple years now but I still think its the perfect way to get that unique summer hairstyle. Adding pastels and bright colours to your hair can help distract from the inevitable hair that’s plastered against your skin. Plus it’s cute when you can use summer hairstyle hacks to match your bomb summer wardrobe.
4. Wet Hairstyles

Everyone dreams of that perfect beach hair we grew up seeing on TV. The girls walking along the beach, sand in their toes, and perfect curls flowing behind them. What if I could tell you can do that with your own hair right in the comfort of your own home. Check out this beachy wave tutorial!
Headbands can seem a little fifth grade sometimes, but with the right size and pattern, you can rock that modern 1950’s look with your favourite pair of high waisted shorts. Headbands are also one of the convenient summer hairstyle hacks that keeps the hair out of your face.

Messy hair, don’t care. A motto every girl wishes they could live by. That perfect hairstyle that looks like you put no effort in but you also spent hours in the mirror trying to get that one strand of hair to stand up in the right direction. The messy top knot is the time constraining hairstyle on the summer hairstyle hacks list. It’s also perfect for that perfect tanning day at the beach or your local pool.
