I don’t know about you, but on hot summer days, the last thing I want to be doing is spending the better half of an hour in front of the mirror trying to style my hair into the perfect coif. Maybe it’s all the time I’ve spent indoors over the last few months, but I’ve been craving anything low-maintenance with much of my beauty routine (but especially my hair routine). Not only does an elaborate, multi-step styling process feel irrelevant to me, but now that we’re getting into summer, I hardly want to waste one more minute than I need to not soaking up the sun, which is why I’ve been getting inspired by a number of easy summer hairstyles.
Luckily, the fashion girls I already follow on the ‘gram have been providing a plethora of cool hair ideas that couldn’t be easier to execute, as long as the right styling tools and accessories are involved. Ahead, I’m sharing six summer hairstyle trends I’m particularly keen on as well as the items you’ll need to re-create each look.
It can’t just be me—these charming micro braids are flooding my Instagram feed at the moment. I’ve noticed how fashion girls are embracing their natural textures with this one (yes, it even works with bed-head hair) and are braiding in several tiny strands, either two to frame the face or several throughout.
