7 Hairstyles That Make A Case For Going Dark In The Summer

I’m all about an unpopular opinion. I may not agree with it, but I love the controversy of one. You don’t watch “Game of Thrones”? Think essential oils are pointless? Don’t listen to Beyoncé? OK, you can leave. Totally kidding! (But not really…) Anyways, you get the point.

Another unpopular opinion is to have dark hair in the summertime. I know they say blondes have more fun, but sometimes being unique is even more fun than being blonde, so scroll on for some of the coolest hairstyles that will make you want to ditch the bleach this summer!
