It’s summer, which means it’s hot and the last thing we want to do is take a straightening iron to our hair. It’s hardly worth going for the straight look during summer anyway, because before you know it your freshly straightened hair starts frizzing from all the heat.
But lucky for us, we can get some summer hairstyle ideas from our favourite celebrities.
Whether you are rocking a pixie cut or you love your long golden locks, take a tip from these celebrities and get inspired by their summer hairstyles for some great heat-proof looks.
American model Karlie went for the chop last year and has a gorgeous yet low-maintenance style perfect for summer. If you have naturally wavy hair, this length is perfect. It’s light, which is great for summer and the natural curl is hassle-free. No need to worry about the humidity frizz. Just make sure you use a good conditioner and treatment and your hair will be smooth and looking gorgeous.
Just because you want a cute summer hairstyle doesn’t mean you have to go the long beachbum look. Anne Hathaway rocks the pixie cut and you can, too! If you’ve got short hair, just rub some product in and go for the messy look. Anne Hathaway has been sporting this new look since filming for Les Miserables. “I love the short-haired lifestyle,” Anne said in an interview . “I’m turning 30, and — I hope this isn’t obnoxious to say — I feel prettier, and much more myself. I guess I just feel much more satisfied with less now.”
