Hairstyles That Are Perfect For Summer

This summer, hair trends are leaning towards the free-spirited, boho vibe, meaning that there is so much room for experimentation. From different types of braids to a curly bob, here are some hairstyles that are absolutely perfect for this summer.

Braids
Braids are one of the hottest hair trends for this summer, and, when it comes to braids, there is so much to choose from. Whether you opt for a French braid, small and subtle accent braids, Dutch braids, or even a simple messy thick braid, you cannot really go wrong here.

Low Ponytail
The low ponytail is a low-maintenance hairstyle, making it perfect for busy summer days. This is a style that can be easily dressed both up and down, depending on what you wear it with. To mix this look up a bit, try adding in a few braids to your low ponytail, or even knotting your hair around your hair-tie to add some extra texture and interest.

The Curly Bob
The curly bob is a wonderfully carefree summer style that is so easy to maintain, meaning that it will look just as fabulous each and every day. This style needs plenty of short, vertical layers in the hair, as this prevents the curls from forming an outwards triangle. To make this look even more show-stopping, add in some wispy bangs as well, but keep them quite minimal, as you do not want too much extra hair on your face during the summer months.

The Wet Look
For those spending their summer by a beach or a pool, then the wet look is a hairstyle that may be perfect for you. Simply keep your locks slicked down with some gel, deciding whether you want to leave it loose and sleek or tightly tied back. To add to the look, try creating a sleek, wet look side fringe, as this will help to really frame your face.

Deep, Side Part
The deep side part is a hairstyle that was all over the major fashion runways for this summer, and this is a perfect one to try, as it works with every hair type and cut. From long and loose with a 70s vibe to a sleek, slicked back side ponytail, the deep side part works in so many different ways.

The Modern Pixie Cut
Pixie cuts are back this summer, and are a great option for those with short hair, as they can be styled in a number of interesting ways. Each of the styles mentioned above would work with a pixie cut, be it bouncy curls or sleek and slicked back, and this is because the pixie cut is one of the most timeless styles out there.

While there are certain hairstyles that are very much in trend for this summer, these are all quite broad, meaning that they can be interpreted in so many different ways. So, whether your hair is short and straight or long and curly, give some of these hairstyles a try this summer.

Stand-Out Celeb Haircuts of 2015

Celebrity haircuts are always evolving, from styles that we desperately want to recreate to others that we can’t quite understand and would be happy to see the end of. While there have been a huge number celebrity hair transformations over the past year, there are some that have really made their mark, so read on for some of OROGOLD’s picks of the stand-out celebrity haircuts of 2015.

For years, supermodel Naomi Campbell has had luscious long hair, but this changed in November 2015. At the British Fashion Awards that month, Campbell showcased her new look – a short, layered bob that is fun, flirty and extremely stylish.

Lauren Conrad
Fashion and style icon Lauren Conrad has rocked her blonde locks for so long that we almost didn’t recognize her with her new hair color. 2015 saw Conrad say goodbye to her signature golden color and opt for a romantic strawberry shade instead. For those of you who have been wanting to experiment with a new hair color, let 2016 be the year that you do so!

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez is another star that swapped her long locks for a textured bob in 2015. Jlo’s was first seen showcasing her new cut in May, with the shoulder-length texture giving her a sophisticated vibe.

Fashion model Kendall Jenner’s new haircut was debuted at the AMA’s in November 2015, and featured long, sleek bangs. Her new fringe gave her quite an edgy vibe, and, due to its length, can be styled in quite a few different ways. While Jenner may have had a number of different cuts and styles over the year, this is one that OROGOLD thinks will really catch on in 2016.

Kerry Washington was another celebrity that showed off some new bangs in 2015. While it can sometimes be off-putting when the same style is frequently seen, each of these gorgeous ladies have shown us that bangs can be so flattering when done properly, for just about any face shape.

Donatella Versace
Donatella Versace’s signature hairstyle for the past decade has been long and platinum blonde, but she decided to change that in June 2015, and her decision definitely paid off. Instead of her long, straight strands, Versace now rocks a textured bob, still in her signature platinum color. Her new bob is shoulder-length and extremely stylish, giving her a trendy and youthful vibe without going over the top.

Charlize Theron
In September 2015, Charlize Theron shed her shoulder-length locks for a pixie cut, a move that many of us would certainly consider to be very daring. However, Theron’s stunning bone structure works with just about any look, and OROGOLD thinks that she definitely suits her new style.

From flirty, textured bobs to sleek, long bangs to vibrant new colors, 2015 saw a variety of different haircuts on our favorite celebrities. If you have been inspired by any of these stars to switch up your own style, OROGOLD suggests doing it soon, so that you can begin 2016 with your fresh new look.
