This summer, it’s all about expressing your individuality and playing up your best traits. And no style is off-limits! Still, a little hairstyle inspo never hurt anybody. So, sit back and relax while we share our favorite summer hairstyles for 2022.
Big, Bold Texture
Topping our list of 2022 summer hairstyles is any style that’s big, bold, and full of texture - think a giant mane of curls, coils, or kinks. This look is for any dame or dude who wants to make an entrance and an exit everywhere they go.
The best part about this style is that it’s practically weather-proof and acts as a sunshade on the sunniest summer days.
If you already have textured hair, all you’ve got to do is fluff out your roots with a pick. If you don’t have textured hair, add some artificial texture with a curling iron or wand, comb out your hair from ends to roots, fluff your roots, and you’re all done!
The quintessential lob has captured the hearts of many, but when you add some defined curls to it, it’s elevated to a whole new level. Rock this style wherever you go. Pair it with some cute loungewear for a quick errand to the store or don it with a slinky dress for a formal affair. Style it with a deep side part, a middle part, or just let your strands fall wherever they may. This style is just that versatile.
The curly lob looks great on just about everyone, but it’s especially good for softening angular faces. So, if this style is speaking to you, we say “go for it!”
When it comes to flaunt-worthy tresses, sometimes less is more – literally. This barely-there crop puts your lovely facial features on full display. But that’s not the best thing about this style. It’s also totally hands-off; since there’s not much hair to style, you get to roll out of bed and go.
We strongly recommend seeing a professional hairstylist to get this style because one wayward snip can ruin the entire look.
Straight and Tousled
Do straight styles tickle your fancy? Well, check this one out! It’s an overt departure from straight, sleek styles that you see every day. It has a tousled, shaggy quality that we absolutely love for the summer. With this style, you can go out and live life without worrying about the wind ruining your locks. What’s more, is that disheveled hair is 100% in for the summer.
Did one of the hairstyles in this article speak to you? We hope so! Regardless, remember that you are free to wear your hair however you’d like. What’s important is that you feel beautiful. Here’s to an entire summer of great hair days!
