7 Cute Summer Hairstyles for Short Hair

Having long hair may not be everyone’s cup of tea, especially during the hot summer months when the heat can make having long hair unbearable. So if you’re thinking of chopping it all off, worry not as there are many ways to easily style your short locks without much effort. Here are my favorite summer hairstyles for short hair that you can try out for yourself to spice up your hairstyles.

1. Sleek Back Hair

Try out this swept-back hairstyle and steal the show. You may have seen this popular style on many celebs on the red carpet, and it looks edgy and sophisticated. It’s a great way to have your hair out of your face for those super hot days. You may need to keep some extra hold hairspray with you to keep your short tresses in check for a longer time. I recommend the L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Lock It Bold Control Hairspray or TIGI Bed Hard Head Extra Strong Hold Hair Spray.

2. Braids

Braiding your hair can easily add some elegance to your look. You can opt for a thin braid at one side of your hair and pin it to the side with a bobby pin or hair tie. Or, opt for multiple braids and release your creativity with your hairstyle.

3. Top Knot

This is a very stylish hairstyle and one of the best summer hairstyles for short hair. Start by combing through your hair and then pulling all of the hair into a tight bun on the top of your head.

For an alternate look, try putting up only half of your hair into a bun, letting the rest fall down, into a half-up half-down hairstyle.

4. Volumized Pony

This classic pony look is a look you can wear year-round. It’s perfect if you’re going for a polished or more sophisticated look, or even for every day if you want your hair out of your face.

5. Space Buns

A cute twist on the classic updo look. Comb through your hair and make two small buns on either side of your head and secure with a hair tie to get this cute look. Great hairstyle to try if you are feeling funky or want to try  a unique look.

6. Curls

Curls are always trendy and will probably never go out of style. They’re a great way to spice up short hair as they give the hair more volume. Use a good curler to curl your hair and make sure to use a heat protectant beforehand. If you want the beachy waves look, try a texturizing spray on your hair to give it some natural waves. I recommend the Got2b Beach Trippin’ Salt Spray or the Sun Bum Sea Spray.

7. Headbands

Incorporating headbands into your hairstyle can easily dazzle your appearance. These days there are so many headbands to choose from, you can go for dainty elegant ones that can soften your look, or go for the bold chunky headbands for a more retro look.

My favorite headbands include:
