Easy hairstyles for hot summer days

Have you found yourself falling into the same trap every day? Yes, we’re talking about our hairstyles. While it might be tempting to cut your hair short, or just opt for the same look day after day, these easy hairstyles for hot summer days will be sure to mix things up without adding extra time to your morning routine.

Wrapped ponytail

If you want to add a twist on an old classic then have no fear; we’ve got you covered. All you need to do is tie your hair up into a ponytail as you usually would. As soon as it’s secured with a small hair tie then take a section of your ponytail and start to wrap it around the tie until you’ve used the entire section and the tie is covered. Finish the look by using a bobby pin to hide the end of your hair under the ponytail and keep it in place.

French braids

French braid might sound scary to some, but they don’t have to be as daunting as they first seem. Practicing on someone else and using plenty of mirrors to see all angles of your own head are sure to help even the most confused of us get to grips with the braids. The best bit? Once you’ve got them down, it shouldn’t be long before you can add all kinds of spins on the classic look. One braid, two braids, back to front braids – the choice will all soon be yours!


Do you ever have those days where you want to roll out of bed, grab a hair tie, and throw your hair up without putting a second thought into your look? Good news; a topknot could be all you need. These are buns that are tied pretty much as high as you can get them on your head. Want a messy look? Merely wrap the tie around your matted three-day-old hair. Want a sleek look? Tame those flyaways with a little hairspray or wax. Want a half-up-half-down look? Simply tie the top of your hair up into a topknot and let the rest of your hair flow down.

French braid with bun

This style is great for people for a little bit more time. One way to pull off this look is to French braid from the nape of your neck until you reach the height that you want your bun. Then, simply tie the ends into any style of bun that you’d like. Another way to pull off this style is to French braid from the front of your head before, once again, securing the rest of your hair into a bun.

Messy ponytail

Those rising temperatures could mean that the frizz starts to show, and our styles start to change. So why not start with a messy style in the first place? All you need to do is pull your hair back into a high ponytail. From here, pull out sections at the front of your head to frame your face before loosening certain parts of your hair going into the hair tie. Then, adding some curls to your ponytail, spraying it with sea salt spray, and a little teasing can all give it that professional messy look.
