Simple Summer Hairstyles

Summer time is practically my favorite season.

My hair changes with each season, and to be quite honest summer styles are my favorite because they are the easiest, and most summer styles never go out of style.

During summer months, where I am from, humidity takes a toll on my hair. As awful as humidity for the hair is, it is really not that bad because most styles for cute summer looks include hair being pulled back, so humidity does not really become a huge problem.

Of course one simple easy to do timeless look is to pull your hair back into a ponytail. You can pull hair up way high at the top of your head and let the pony talk fall down contouring your face. You can pull hair back into a mid high ponytail, or you can leave a low ponytail.

Creating other simple summer looks require nothing more than a brush, and a hair tie. A high loosely pulled bun will keep hair off of your face, and allow the air's breeze to cool you off on hotter days.

Another summer look that has yet to go out of style is simply going to a nearby salon and having highlights added to your hair. This results in sun kissed hair, and is an easy way to summerfy your look.

Adding highlights can also be done at home, but to make 100% sure your results are perfect and natural looking, you will definitely want to consider a salon. Highlights don't usually come to more than $35.00, and a tip.

There are other ways you can spiff up your hair for the summer season. I personally like adding flower rhinestone clips, or thin metal headbands that include a metal flower pushed to the side. The flowers, of course, are perfect for adding cute, effortless flair, and the rhinestones will allow the sunshine to hit them, making your hair even more glamorous and summer ready.

An all time favorite summer look that I sport from time to time is the low tied pigtails. Even older women look fabulous with this style. In order to allow the look to work though, do NOT pull the pigtails up high. You will end up looking like a call girl. Let the pigtails fall low to the sides like Jessica Simpson does from time to time. An off centered part is also a nice way to wear the pigtails.

I personally like this style because it not only makes you look a few years younger, but it also keeps hair out of my face on hot summer days. Hair in the face can actually create acne, especially on more humid days of summer.

French braids are also classical. They are elegant, neat, and once again hair won't be left in your face.

 You can add a rhinestone flower clip to the side to finish off the look (that is if you like pizazz).

Finally you can buy a pair of barrette's to create the next summery style. Any barrettes will do. It's your choice really. I tend to use ones that are either flowers, or small metal butterflies.

Next you simply part your hair directly down the middle and take a barrette and clip it into each side of your part. This lifts up hair and adds the illusion of volume and layer, and will also keep hair out of your face.

All in all, summer styles tend to be styles that require less effort; besides, who wants to sit inside spending hours working on their hair, when they could be outside soaking up the sun?
