Insanely Cute Hairstyles You Can Achieve in Minutes This Summer
Mother Nature is cranking up the heat and just like we’re changing up our wardrobe, we’re going to need some fresh ways to switch up our hair routine. Time is always tight and a drastic cut might be, well… too drastic. Might we recommend trying a quick and near-effortless hairstyle that gives you that extra oomph to your look? Look no further- we’ve found a number of ways you can slay with a style that’s on trend and doesn’t require you to stand in front of the mirror for hours. Take 10 minutes and try any of these hairstyles to elevate your look.
Exposed Bobby Pins
Un-hide those bobby pins! Whether you stack them on the side of your favourite updo, crisscross over braids or simply stack them on the side of your mane, the exposed bobby pin trend is here to stay! What we love about this trend is that there are no rules to follow. You can go messy or perfectly placed. Either way, you’ll look runway-ready.
Curly-haired girls rejoice! This sky-high ponytail with cascading curls is as effortless and gorgeous as it gets. All it takes is an ultra-high pony towards the crown and pinning the curls forward. Try loosening up a few curls to frame the face or add a head wrap for some extra fun!
We absolutely loved when Margot Robbie recently paid homage to Sharon Tate at the Cannes film festival with these loose, effortless braids. Leave the ends loose without elastics and spritz some texturizing spray before heading out for lasting hold without the crunchiness.
Barrettes x Bangs
Summer sweat and bangs do not mix well so why not take care of that little problem with some chunky barrettes? There are a ton of 90’s inspired, designer logo, tortoise shell and pearl clips on trend to keep you sporting this look in different ways all season long.
Long Adorned Braids
Long Rapunzel braids are back in season but with a vengeance. At this year’s Coachella, Kendall Jenner adorned hers with seashells, gold hoops and clear crosses and it was an epic way to elevate her sleek long braid. If your look is tight and sleek, we suggest wrapping your braid(s) with metallic string now.
No longer reserved for cowboys and pirates, the bandana is the hair hair-cessory you need to complete an easy but insanely cute hairstyle in a cinch. Wrap one around your low (or high) messy bun until there’s about 2-3 inches left on each side before tying at the base. Yeehaw!
Pulled Back, Super Teased
Zendaya completely nailed this look. Even though your hair is parted right down the middle and pulled into a tight, low pony, your curly or straight hair can be teased to perfection. This gives a new definition of business in the front, party in the back.
We are SO glad this wet, out-of-the-shower look is back. But it will take a little more than just stepping out of the shower to achieve this look. Part your hair in the middle or slightly to the side, grab your hair oil or styling cream and go to town scrunching your mane until desired.

Double Top Knot
If you’ve got short to medium length hair, you’ve got to try this grown-up take on your little cousin’s space buns. This look on Kate Mara is super effortless and a little bit sporty but still classy and cool. Add some shine spray for a more polished finish.

Tousled Scrunchie Pony
Pony up and turn this average go-to into a statement look with a 90’s-inspired fabric scrunchie. Simply gather your hair in a loose, high pony and let your natural waves fall free. Hailey Beiber is showing us how it’s done!
If you’ve got super-short hair, adding glitter is a perfect way to make your cut fancier. Longer hair? A lot of trend-setters are adding bright colour and glitter to their roots.
Parted Top Knot
Lately, this has been my go-to when I can’t be bothered, but must look pulled together. This take on the top knot adds a little more dimension to your do with the part down the middle. Chic AF.
