Summer’s heat and humidity can make styling your hair at the least, frustrating, at most, impossible. Staying cool while staying trendy doesn’t have to be tough because these summer hairstyles for 2018 will make a scorching summer day a breeze to get through.

One of the most popular hair trends right now is a bob haircut with beachy waves throughout. It’s beautiful and appears effortless while keeping your hair off your neck and shoulders. If you do not want your hair in your face, you can create a wispy updo by putting your beach curls up in a bun and letting the loose hair naturally frame your face.

Braids are easy to fashion and are very versatile to any hairstyle. To keep your hair out of your face and off your neck, you can create an effortless side braid and gather it into a wispy top knot. Just let the stray pieces do their thing because messy looks are the trend this year.

It’s so easy to throw your hair into a simple ponytail and go on about your day, but you can effortlessly style your ponytail to look adorable. Tie your hair into a high ponytail, then take a section of your hair and wrap it around a hair tie and secure it with a bobby pin. You can also use the same ponytail and tie off portions of your hair with statement elastics and fluff out those portions for the full balloon look.

You never feel more free and beautiful than when you step right out of the ocean, but you can get that wet hair look without going to the beach. The wet hair trend is in this year, and it appears beautiful and fresh. Just take your natural, partially dried hair and use a level 5 mousse to give your hair natural looking waves. You can also lightly spritz sea salt spray in your hair to add more texture.

Beauty can be a pain, but it doesn’t have to. There are many cute and creative ways to style your hair in the summer without melting in the scorching sun or giving up and letting your hair win. The best part is, effortless and messy looks are the trend for this year, so staying cool while looking great doesn’t have to mean spending hours in front of the mirror.
