Summer days call for easy things and simple styles. After all, when the sun is shining you don’t want to waste half your day doing your hair, so something quick is a must. Likewise, heat is also a factor. Hot weather makes heat styling a pain, so why not avoid blow-drying, straightening and curling when possible? Whether your hair is long, short, curly or straight, there is a hairstyle for you. From gorgeous updos to chic, loose locks, these summer hairstyles will take you from the beach to brunch in style.

This casual side braid is great for adding shape to straight locks. Simply use a three strand braid to braid the hair very loosely to one side.

Boxer braids are created by braiding two French braids from the hairline, at the back of the head, and down to the ends of the strands. This is one of the most popular hairstyles of the year and it is perfect for hot weather.
4. Straight and elegant

How to deal with long hair in summer?
Tips for dealing with long hair in the summer include dry shampoo for sweaty days and using a leave-in conditioner to combat humidity frizz. A layered cut is a great way to get rid of excess bulk and weight. If you just want your hair to be parted, try a number of ponytail or bun styles, or distribute the weight more in the evening with a braided style. Finally, while it may be tempting to wash more often, try to stick to your regular two or three washes per week and embrace the natural texture in between.
