For many women, with the changing of the seasons comes a renewed desire to give hair a refresh. Whether you are tired of your current look or are just looking for a quick update, there is no denying that changing up your cut or color can significantly transform how you feel about your day-to-day look.
Generally, in the summer, you want your hairstyle and color to be as low maintenance and effortless as possible, so that you can make the most of each day and not have to be worried about fixing your hair constantly.
If you need some inspiration before you head to the salon, read on for three summer haircuts to keep you looking and feeling fresh.
1. Collarbone Lob
For those who aren’t ready to cut off too much hair, the collarbone lob may be the perfect cut.
This cut works for all hair types as it is universally flattering and straightforward to style and manage, which translates into less time wasted getting ready, and more time to spend on summer adventures!
That being said, this cut is particularly wonderful for those with thicker hair because the movement and volume will be just right for that much-loved but hard to imitate, effortless texture.
If you are interested in getting a collarbone lob, make sure to ask your stylist (who, hopefully, is the best hairdresser in Dubai) to keep the ends blunter, with no layering, which will keep its needed maintenance minimal. Alternatively, if you don’t mind spending a little bit of time styling it because you want some movement, then ask your stylist for minimal layering around the face.
2. Seventies Bangs
There’s no denying that celebrities around the world are loving having blunt bangs again.
From Miley Cyrus to Yara Shahidi, Hilary Duff to Camila Cabello, there are a lot of new fringes in the world this season. Luckily, there are a wide variety of fringe styles which pretty much ensures that you’ll find one that perfectly suits your face. For example, some ladies may want to go all out with a blunt, eye-grazing cut, while others would prefer to rock curly baby bangs.
However, for those who want to pay homage to the past but still be on-trend, seventies-inspired curtain bangs are the way to go.
This style doesn’t require much maintenance and will have you looking cool and refreshed all summer long. What is more, the long, soft bangs that make up this classic vintage look are suitable for those who are trying bangs for the first time.
3. Blunt Bob
Did you know that the bob originated in the 1920s as a symbol of rebellion?
Since then, it has come and gone out of style with women switching up their take on the trend. This year, the bob is back in action, particularly with an extremely blunt cut which means that your hair is the same length all the way around. By cutting your hair and leaving it above your shoulders, you are already signifying to yourself that this year is going to include a carefree summer.
What’s more, a blunt bob is fantastic for those who are suffering from damaged hair as it gives you the chance to remove dead ends while also not requiring any layers. This, in turn, will keep your hair looking full and staying strong over the next few months.
If you are looking to give your hair a refresh, this is a good option for most hair types apart from curly. For those of you blessed with curly hair, you can opt for thoughtfully arranged layers done at salons that specialize in curly hair.
Are you considering switching up your hair cut for summer? If so, what are you thinking of doing? What styles do you find work best in the warmer months? If you aren’t, what’s stopping you from transforming your look?
