Summer Haircuts That’ll Make You Want to Go Shorter ASAP
Nothing says summer like a slightly impulsive yet incredibly stylish new haircut. It’s a decision made in the heat of the moment, literally, at a scorching hundred degrees. This summer, skip the same-old trim—because that’s just no fun. You know what is fun? Bobs. From the cool asymmetrical bob to the spunky blunt bob, the versatile A-line bob to the ultra-chic French bob, this classic cut is trending in a serious way this season. That’s not all, either. You’ll find cool summer haircuts of all persuasions and personalities, just waiting to be snipped and styled. It’s time to spend more time basking in the summer season, not styling your hair. These fresh and easy summer haircuts will help make that happen.
What makes a simple lob hairstyle even more summer-ready? Rich strokes of golden balayage focused around the face and towards the ends. It’s the grown-up big sister of sun-kissed beachy balayage. Not to mention, the face framing makes for a flattering dose of cheekbones.
If you need a little kick in the rear, this layerless stunner should convince you to make the chop. It hits the perfect balance for a trendy summer cut with its chin-grazing length, effortless waves, and golden touches of balayage.
This year, it’s all about the bob á la francaise. The length? Above the chin, highlighting that bone structure. The bangs? Baby short, hitting above the brows. The finishing touch? Slightly barrel-curled ends, giving a retro vibe.
Take your lob to stylish new heights with a set of killer curtained bangs. These work best when paired with some layering, similar to when cutting a shaggy hairstyle. To freshen it up even more, lighten up your base color with balayage around the face.
This might just be the cut of the year. An asymmetrical bob seems to transcend texture and face shape every time. The asymmetry is cool enough to revamp a classic hairstyle, the bob; and definitely hip enough to make you feel totally fresh for summer.
This cut is blunter than your over-served uncle at the Christmas party. We’re seeing this trendy hairstyle everywhere, and it’s way more versatile than you think. Bring it up to a bob, or make it asymmetrical. Any way you snip it, the style looks killer with relaxed flat-iron waves and sun-kissed balayage.
French bob? Say hello to your new friend, the shaggy bob. This feisty short cut looks especially bold on curly-haired ladies who are looking to make a chop for the warm weather. Heavily curtained fringe gives just the right amount of mystique to make this style a sultry statement for summer.
Side-swept fringe offers an almost too-easy stylish update to a classic pixie. This textured finish still looks traditional and sophisticated, but with a little extra charm.
Because let's be honest: You aren't really going for a totally neutral, medium-length cut when you waltz into that pre-summer salon visit. You want a lob. No, you need a lob. But you chickened out at the last minute, ending up with this longer version. Those subtle golden highlights will get us through the regret.
Nothing says cool for the summer like a fresh set of bangs á la Jane Birkin. When it’s just too hot to commit to full-on styling, bangs are a happy medium. Embrace natural texture by air-drying a trendy lob-length cut, and blow-dry the bangs if needed.
It’s hard to get any chicer (yet still low maintenance) than a chin-grazing A-line bob. The cut is slightly shorter in the back, but without layers, making it perfect for fine and thin hair. The middle part adds a little trendiness to this classic length.
Shape up those curls just in time for summer. This curly shag lets loose all of the layers, bangs, and spirals we could ever wish for. Lighten up with some perfectly placed hazelnut and caramel highlights to keep things fresh and bright.
Summer is not the prime time for a slick crop cut. Rather, it calls for a layered, full-of-life pixie that you can muss and style however you’d like, be it wild or sophisticated. Play around with the direction, from asymmetrically swept to the side to boldly facing the front, like seen here.
A stacked bob will always be there when you want to go from ho-hum to wham-bam. The shorter back layers are just begging to be packed with volume and texture. Touches of rose gold and caramel balayage add a warm finish that'll last beyond the season.
