Quick & Easy Summer Hairstyles!

Hey cupcakes! To prepare myself for the hotter summer months, I recently got a haircut... And I'm talking like 6 inches. :) My hair now is at my collarbone when it used to fall just below my boobs; I absolutely love my new shorter hair! My lovely locks get tangly in a matter of seconds, so shorter hair has allowed me to really branch out in terms of hairstyles (something I have never really done before!). I wanted to share some quick and easy hairstyles that I have been wearing often, so let's jump right into it!

1. Half Up, Half Down Space/"Mini" Bun

A space bun with longer hair just never worked out for me, so I was super excited to rock this style! All you have to do is put up half of your hair into a ponytail and then turn it into a bun (either at the top of your head or behind your head like in this picture)... I only have to secure my bun with one bobby pin, and it will stay in place all day! Keep the rest of your hair natural or style with a curler, etc.

2. Braided Bang

When I part my hair to the side (which I often do when I wear it natural), some pieces in the front are shorter layers. To keep them out of my eyes all day, I like to make a small braid and pin it behind my ear. If you are more talented than me in the hair department, a french braid would look even cuter!

3. Beach Waves

I am lucky enough to have naturally wavy hair, and beach waves are always a trendy look for the summer :) There are a bunch of products out there that can help you achieve this look (salt sprays, etc.), but you can also sleep in a bunch of mini braids for an effortless style the next morning!

  1. I'm letting my hair grow out and I'm THIS CLOSE to being able to tie it back. So for now I don't do much since it's not quite long enough, but I'm looking forward to being able to do more with it.

    1. Yesss I remember when I cut off a lot of my hair years and years ago that feeling of almost being able to put it up was so great! :)

  2. That is a huge change but I am so glad you are loving your new 'do! These styles are gorgeous, especially the braided bang one. I love that!

  3. The first hairstyle was actually on my list of hairstyles I hate haha - 6 hairstyles I don't like I get it, it's really practical and easy to do, but just not my style :)
    I just love wearing it in a ponytail or making some bun to keep it out of the face :)
