Hi everyone! Hope your weekend was gorgeous. It has been in the 80’s all weekend where I live. For me, with that wonderful heat usually comes the beginning of endless ponytail season. Cute summer hairstyles are much needed. I have long hair. I have had long hair about 80% of my entire life. I love it and it’s what I am used to but in an effort to not just pull it back and call it good every day, I have a list of my go-to sites that give me all the hair inspiration I could ever need. I’ll show you those and a few of my fav. styles, cuts and colors.
Summer Hairstyles Inspiration
Let’s start with 2 of my favorite go-to’s.
I am obsessed with braids. In any and every form. Long or short hair, curly or straight….braids are simple and beautiful.I’ve been rockin’ the bang braid a lot lately. I also am in love with THIS one, THIS one, and THAT one! (Great tutorials)
Next, THE TOP KNOT!!
This is such an easy fix for unruly or messy hair. Top Knots are cute and they are easily worn with a casual look or a more dressed up look.
OK, to be honest with you all….I desperately want bangs.
I know, there everywhere right now. But when I see cute ones like THIS one and THIS one, I want run to my phone and book an appt. for today! **Tip for you… you can buy real hair clip-in bangs at Sally’s for a pretty good deal and they look fantastic if you can match your color. Plus, no permanent cutting is involved. Win/Win.
I have played with my hair color since high school. I have done highlights, been blond, chestnut brown, and even a sad and depressing 2 days when I accidentally turned my highlights grey.
Oh what I would do to give this shade of red a try…
LOVING ombre as well.
But I always find my way back to my basic brunette with highlights. It’s comfy.
I have grown attached to my long locks for now. But when the time comes I am thinking about a cut like this one.
I challenge you ladies to take a few extra minutes on your lovely locks and test out some new curls or a braid or two. OH, and here are the links to my favorite sites I use when I am feeling sick of the same ol’ same old. Have fun!!
Now It’s Your Turn!
