Six summer hairstyles inspired by celebrities

Summer is very different from any other season when it comes to keeping our hair looking perfect. Especially here in the Ottawa region, the weather always has a big say in what hairstyle we choose on any given day. People who have hair that gets frizzy at the slightest hint of humidity sometimes feel like they’re stuck with a simple ponytail. People who spend a lot of time in the sun sometimes cut their hair short to avoid excessive sweating. If we look at some of the most famous women in Hollywood, we can get ideas for hairstyles that can stand up to the heat and humidity that come with summer. Find out about these celebrity hairstyles for summer – and say goodbye to the simple ponytails and pixie cuts you’ve grown used to using.

The long bob The long lob, which first became popular in the 1990s, has proven to be a popular summer haircut for some of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood including pop princess Katy Perry, who has the style. This collarbone grazing hairstyle is simple maintenance, but it looks faultless on virtually all face shapes (especially oval faces). The length also means it can still be worn up in a ponytail or down without generating excessive perspiration, which is another benefit.

Low buns

For those who wish to keep their haircut the same for the summer, there are plenty of style options which celebrities are sporting. The low bun, which has become the distinctive look of fashion queen Meghan Markle, is very popular. Instead of forming the bun at the top of the head, as has been seen in previous years, this style forms a bun at the nape of the neck, with a few loose tendrils left to frame the face in the front. This appearance is easy to wear in transition from the workplace to an after-hours pool party, making it a popular pick for individuals who have both a hectic work and social schedule.

Beachy waves As they have been for many years, beachy waves are once again the most popular hairdo among Hollywood bombshells such as Blake Lively, who wear them in the summer. It’s possible to get this mermaid-inspired style with hair of any length; however, it is most stunning when done with long locks. It’s possible to achieve this look in many ways, including loose overnight braids using a curling iron, or simply spritzing wet hair with sea salt or texturizing spray.

Scrunchy adorned ponytail

Scrunchies have lately made their way back into popular fashion, and celebrities are flocking to them for the summer season. A high ponytail held in place with a velvet scrunchie is perhaps the simplest of all hairstyles. Miley Cyrus and other celebrities have shown that it involves no work, remains in place despite the heat, and looks great on everyone.

Space buns Some believe there’s no better way to combat the heat than with the space bun trend, which is both fashionable and practical. To get the bubbly effect, separate your hair straight down the center and form two loose buns (high and with one on each side). Several of Hollywood’s most prominent figures, including Kendall Jenner, have been seen wearing this style in summer. Because of its simplicity and adaptability, this is a go-to style for outdoor activities such as trekking or sitting poolside in the sun.

The wet look

Like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian, several celebrities have embraced the wet style for the upcoming season. This is an excellent method of combating frizz and creating the appearance that you’ve just gotten out of the shower or swimming pool, regardless of the occasion. This simple style requires only a high-gloss pomade or gel; you can even let it air dry to give your strands a breather from the blow-dryer (and for a more natural appearance).
