Steamy summer days can make you cranky rather than inspired, so Beautylish put together five inspiring summer looks to help you refresh your hairstyle and put a new spin on your summer look—and attitude!
Blake Lively's messy side plait with miniature fishtail braid is a great way to style your hair for a summer party or wedding. And the good news is, messier this style is, the better it looks! For an extra bit of sparkle, add a brooch or hair pin to dress up the braid.
Joy Bryant looks fresh and cool with this ballerina bun. The sleek updo keeps your hair off your face and neck so you stay cool while looking extremely sophisticated and classic. Add a pop of pink lipstick to achieve Joy's summer look.
A simple wavy, loose hairstyle is a great summer basic. To achieve Elizabeth Olsen's soft curves, simply part hair to the side and use a large barrel curling iron to create your loose waves.
Olivia Palermo's messy center part and low bun are perfect for a day at the beach, running errands or even a laid-back summer soirée. After creating your center part, gently pull hair back into a loose bun at the nape of your neck. Let a few shorter pieces of hair fall out of the bun or pull strands out around your face to soften the edges and add a casual flair.
Penelope Cruz looks stunning with her high braided ponytail, and this classic coif is so easy to achieve—just pull hair back into a high ponytail and start plaiting!. The trick is to make sure there is some volume near your hairline and keep the braid loose. Spritz your palms with hairspray and run your hands down the length of the braid to smooth frizzies and tame flyaways.
