10 Hairstyles to try this Summer 2017

Nicole Couch

Here are 10 trendy hairstyles you should try this summer! @colorbyashley @colorbyashley

1.) Balayage

Who hasn't heard of Balayage. This hair trend is all over the internet from Instagram to Pinterest. Some celebs rocking this 'do include Halle Berry, Chrissy Teigen, Jessica Biel, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ciara. 

Ombré OUT, Balayage IN.

2.) Holographic Hair

As the unicorn and mermaid craze rages on, it was only a matter of time before rainbow hair took center stage. And so now the question is, why have boring hair when you can dye it to look like cotton candy?

3.) Big Braids

Braids are always a summer favorite. They keep the hair out of your face while also looking super cute and sporty! Whether you try them in pigtails, one braid to the side or as a braided crown make sure to get creative with this hot summer hair-do.

4.) Accent Braids

While on the topic of braids, why not throw in a couple small accent braids to spice up your hairstyles this summer?

90's throwback? Maybe...but this hot trend was recently spotted on the runways of Roberto Cavalli & Missoni, not to mention all over Coachella.

5.) The Tousled Bob

Summer's hot! But this haircut is hotter. If you're tired of dealing with your long mane in the summer heat than definitely go for this chopped look.

Need inspiration? Some celebs who recently took scissors to their luscious locks include Vanessa Hudgens, Lucy Hale, Julianne Hough, Lily Collins and Emma Watson.

6.) The Top Knot

This look has been around since last summer and I have a feeling it's not going anywhere anytime soon. It's casual, it's cute, but most importantly it's easy to do! It's basically the half-up/half-down hairstyle reinvented.

7.) The Modern Pixie

Pixie cuts aren't for everyone but if you're feeling a little adventurous, summer is the perfect time to test out one of these cuts. And just because it's called a Pixie doesn't mean you have to look like a fairy. Take some styling advice from celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Shailene Woodley, Scarlette Johansson & Rihanna.

8.) LONGER Long Hair

For those who dread the thought of even getting their hair trimmed...this ones for you! Extra long hair is a thing this summer. And if you don't mind putting up with the length in the summer heat it's definitely do-able. You just might want to brush up on your braiding skills and stock up on the pony tail holders.

9.) Bold Color

People are reaching some pretty ambitious hair coloring goals these days. Whether they dye their hair entirely one bright color, make an ombré creation or add subtle pops here-and-there, this trend is all over the place. Some celebs spearheading this movement include Kylie Jenner, Kelly Osbourne, Ariana Grande, Katy Parry & Rihanna.

10.) Pigtail Buns

Pigtails are no longer just for little girls. These fun buns are perfect to get your sweat on, go to music festivals or just hang out! Unsure about it? Try using only the top layer of your hair or putting the pigtails into braids first. Pinterest has tons of cute ways to pull of this look.




Good luck and we wish you many Great Hair Days in the summer of 2017!
