Flowers are blooming, temperatures are rising, sundresses are making their debut—yep, all signs point to our favorite time of year: summer! The warmer months ahead are something we all probably look forward to all year long. And when it comes to your hair, there are plenty of super-cute styles to try out this season—even if you have a short mane. Keep reading for five of our favorite short hairstyles for the summer. Grab your brush and follow along!
Summer is a time to let your hair down (figuratively). Basically, it’s the perfect occasion to rock a new messy ‘do. Instead of going with your traditional messy bun, we love the look of a messy braided ponytail. Equal parts intricate design and relaxed flair, this look is gorgeous when paired with everything from sundresses at brunch to skinny jeans and a blazer at the office. All you have to do is pull your hair back loosely, secure it with a hair tie, and braid it to the ends. Pull a few wisps out to frame your face and you have yourself a super-simple, totally chic new look just in time for the warmer weather.
As the heat rises this season, getting your hair off your neck can offer some sweet relief. And what better way to get that done than by sporting a braided updo? Simply create a Dutch braid along your hairline from your side part down just past your ear. Then, weave another Dutch braid directly behind it before tying both into a whimsical messy bun. Secure it in place with a few bobby pins and a spritz of the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold before taking off on a magical summer adventure.
Braids and waves go together like sand and the beach come summertime. The look incorporates just enough detail while maintaining a beautiful beach babe vibe that’s not overpowering. To get the look, spray your towel-dried hair with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray before braiding a small section of hair on each side of your head and combining them together behind your crown with a clear mini elastic. Voila! Picture-perfect and pretty easy to boot!
Forever a classic, a halo braid can help you achieve an angelic look that pairs nicely with just about any wardrobe choice. To create it, part your hair on the side and begin braiding on the side with more hair. French braid along your hairline, incorporating more hair as you go, all the way down to the nape of your neck. Once you reach your neck, braid your strands all the way to the end. Repeat this same process on the other side of your head. Next, to really nail the halo look, pin each braid up and around to the other side of your head. For added romantic charm, pull out a few face-framing strands before finishing the rest of your beauty routine.
While we’re suckers for braids all year long, we especially love wearing them come summer. There’s just something about the tiny intricacies of braids that take a laidback messy ‘do to the next level. To get this particular look, divide your hair into four sections. For the two side sections, create Dutch braids from your hairline all the way down to your ends. Next, create a fishtail braid and rope braid with the remaining sections. With all four braids in hand, pin them however you like into a bun at the nape of your neck. Be sure to pancake each braid in order to give your Boho braided updo as much volume and style as possible. Once everything is pinned in place, spray it with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
