Cut, color, care: the lowdown on summer hair

As you change out your wardrobe and swap the chunky sweaters and jeans for lighter fabrics, summer dresses, and tanks, it’s time to start thinking about your hair, too. For most people, summer hair trends make them think of beachy waves, sunkissed highlites, and an overall effortlessness that is conducive to lounging around in the heat. While these summer hair trends are certainly a good place to start, maintaining their association with the summer season year after year, there is so much more to summer hair than the obvious. 

Beyond summer hair trends and the cuts and colors that will help you achieve a look that is totally on trend, caring for your hair appropriately is vital. While winter is synonymous with dry hair an statics, summertime can also take a toll on your hair. In summer, just think of all that time you spend in a swimming pool containing chlorine, all the ocean salt water buildup, and the heat damage from the sun blazing down on your strands. Your hair needs will change with the seasons, so it’s important to change your hair care products accordingly.

Summer hair trends: what to ask your stylist for? 

While the summertime doesn’t necessarily require a drastic cut, it’s a good excuse to change things up a bit. Whether you just want to add some texture and layers to give your hair a more effortless, lightweight feel or are looking to make a statement with your look, there’s a summer hairstyle that’s right for you. 

Here’s a few examples:


This textured, asymmetric look is equal parts edgy and chic, and it’s a great way to keep your hair off your back when it’s hot. If you tend to prefer longer hair, the lob is much less daunting than a bob. Plus, it’s easy to grow out your hair again. Unlike with a bob, there’s no awkward in-between phase, simply ask your stylist for a layered lob with some face-framing pieces. When it comes to styling, we suggest curling your hair in alternating directions to give you a more tousled look and prevent the curls from merging together.

A retro vibe for the daring girls, baby bangs are a great summer hair trend to give you a rocker-chic vibe for the summer time. While this look isn’t for everyone, it’s certainly show-stopping. We recommend this look if your hair is already on the straight side as it can be a bit of a nuisance to style, especially on a humid day. Seen at the Prada and Miu Miu runway shows, this high fashion look is a great way to crank up the drama and show off those eyebrows!

Not to be confused with beachy waves, this “it” summer hairstyle is all about natural movement. Rather than discernable, full-bodied curls, think of natural kinks and undone movement. To achieve this look, ask your stylist for long layers that will wear well when you air dry your hair. Depending on your natural texture and desired length, your stylist should be able to customize the look to suit you.
