Easy Up-Do: Our ideal look for a summer wedding or cocktail party. If you have very fine or soft hair, make sure to use a texturizing spray or dry shampoo before styling to give your hair a bit more hold. Source: The Beauty Department
Knotted Pony: When you’re ‘knot’ in the mood to wash your hair, this is the pony for you. The knotted detail is both chic and edgy, making it a staple hairstyle to complement all your summer looks. Source: Byrdie

Double-Volume Pony: The best beauty hack there is! The double pony instantly adds length and body, no matter how long your hair is to begin with. This is perfect for the girl who loves a voluminous look but doesn’t want to use a blow-dryer. Source: StyleCaster

Beach Waves: A summer classic. If your hair is naturally curly or textured, add a little sea salt spray to damp hair and scrunch before it dries. If your hair is stick straight, spritz with the spray and braid it while it’s still damp. This will add the kinks and curls you’re looking for! Source Barefoot Blonde

Half Up With a Clip: When in doubt, just add accessories! A gold statement clip adds a touch of elegance to any natural style. It can also be used to keep unruly strands up off your face. Source: Treasures & Travels

Boho Braids: The more braids the merrier. If you have long hair or use clip-in extensions, this multi-braid style will be your summer go-to. Just add a flowy dress and some jewelry and your boho-chic look is complete. Source: The Freckled Fox
