Hot Summer Hairstyles for 2012
There are lots of hot hairstyles this summer to choose from. This year, most of the styles are focused on casual and low-maintenance looks that don’t usually look like you put a lot of effort into them. Keep in mind that you don’t need to have everything looking perfect to be in style this year.
One hairdo that looks almost like it was done by someone who wasn’t quite sure what they were trying to accomplish is the beachy look. This look is inspired by beach goers, whose hair has been dampened and dries naturally in loose waves. The beachy waves look best with longer hair, and when the bottom half of the hair is the only part that’s given waves, while the top half lays flat.
Possibly the easiest look to accomplish is the glistening locks. This style implies that your hair is still wet or damp from the shower. It gives the wearer a look of innocence and youth, but can also be rather sexy if the eyes are boldened by dark makeup. There are many different degrees that this can be done to, with hair that looks just barely wet to hair that looks dripping wet. Whatever you choose, this is a great summer hair style that can be done with any type and length of hair.
If you’re looking for a simple up-do, the ponytail is once again popular this season. Ponytails are great because they are simple and casual as well as very versatile. You can dress them with barrettes or put a twist on this classic style by only partially pulling the hair through. If done right, you can even wear the ponytail as a formal hairstyle to nice evening events. As long as your hair is long enough to be pulled back, you can rock a ponytail.
Also in the category of up-dos are braids and decorated buns. Braids this year have been seen in a number of forms this year, from tight cornrows to loose French braids. Whatever the occasion or your particular hair type, you are
sure to find a braid or twist that will work for you. Traditional buns are also in this year, but are much more decorated than traditionally. Some of the dressed up buns seen in fashion shows this year featured feathers, lots of twists, and even pearls.
However you choose to do your hair this summer, you’ll be sure to find something that works for you whether you are
going to the beach or a nice night out on the town.
