6 Summer hairstyles that will make your life easier

Quick and easy tresses

Summer beauty is easy. With all of that sunlight, you can choose to show a little of your newly-bronzed skin while lightening up on makeup. But as those temperatures rise, long, heavy hairstyles become a burden. You just want to get your hair off your neck! Get a few summer hairstyle ideas from the stars with these six styles.

Perrie Edwards’
ethereal updo

Nothing says summer like gorgeous bohemian braids and here, Perrie Edwards of British girl group, Little Mix, does it right. This hairstyle is great for naturally wavy hair. Edwards starts by twisting a small section of her hair on the upper left portion of her head into a small braid. Then, being very careful, she starts to tease out each section with her fingers, making the braid appear larger. Once she’s done, she pins the braid back with bobby pins the same color as her golden hair. She looks chic, cute and ready for brunch or the beach.

Keisha Buchanan’s super-high bun

The bun will never go out of style. But because it can go grandma or high fashion, it’s all about how you rock it. Here, Keisha Buchanan does it right. Paired with her blunt, straight across bangs, she sweeps her long black hair into this tight bun at the top of her head. It’s a comfortable, yet perky, look that can be worn from day to night.

Katie Holmes'
messy bun

Sure, a messy bun could look like you’re ready to take a trip to the gym, but paired with the right outfit, this sporty look can be taken from the beach to the club. Start with uncombed hair, push it back and secure with bobby pins. Make sure to tease some pieces out for that unkempt bed-head look.

Josephine De La Baume’s sleek pony

Ponytails can go more than one way. They can make you look like you’re a little girl, ready for the gym or preparing for a night out on the town. Josephine De La Baume does it right with this ultra-chic ponytail, complete with dangling bangs in front for a sexy, sassy look to an otherwise "been there, done that" hairstyle.

Leslie Mann’s
effortless pony

There’s nothing sexier than showing a little shoulder and here, Leslie Mann does it without looking too sultry or vulgar. The comedic actress shows off her face and shoulders with this simple, slightly messy ponytail that can be created in less than three minutes. Simply gather your hair, prop it to the top of your head and secure with your favorite holder. Then, once it’s secure, push out a few hairs on top for an imperfect look.
