Summer’s Prettiest Cropped Locks
Published Jun 9, 2012
Beachy waves, braids, big messy buns—why should long hair get to have all the fun? There are plenty of ways you can style short locks, and they don’t have to be boring. As always, we sought inspiration from the Beautylish community, and they didn’t disappoint. Here are three short hair looks to try this summer.
Shorter tresses mean more playtime with texture, color, and shape. For a feminine twist, curl the front of your locks back into an ocean-inspired wave like Chenda N. This could work just as well on the beach or for a summer wedding.
Make us mod! We’re slightly obsessed with Maryam M.’s choppy, boyish, bob (and her Twiggy-esque eyes!). Pixie cuts are easy to style in many different ways, allowing for plenty of creativity and experimentation. Create a side part and comb over for a sleek-chic look, or rough up your ‘do with some wax for flare.
Don’t have tresses long enough to achieve Victoria’s Secret Angel-worthy waves? Never fear, the same style works equally as well on long bobs. For natural kinks like Bec W., apply a leave-in surf spray (we love Bumble & Bumble’s) to wet hair and scrunch the ends of your strands while blow-drying.
