Summer is the season of lazy days in hot weather. Aim for easy summer hairstyles to keep your morning routine light.

No matter whether your hair is long or short, maximize your style with an effortless hairdo. Here are 7 great hairstyles for hot days.

1. Top Knot

Want an easy way to get long hair off your neck? Try a messy top knot the next time you wear a maxi dress.

Top knots upgrade just about any loungewear and help dress down semi-formal dresses. If you’re trying to make a top-knot work for the office, add mousse to your hair before setting your bun.

2. Bantu Knots

Bantu knots look great on natural hair of all textures. To create this look, section the hair into 10 small parts.

Twist each section into a tiny bun. The longer your hair, the larger the knots will be.

If you have short hair, you can create larger Bantu knots by diving your hair into fewer sections.

3. Side Pony

Looking for a casual cute look? A side ponytail is a fast, easy option for medium and long hair.

Add mousse to increase the volume of your side-swept look, but avoid gel in order to create an effortless style. Strands may escape the ponytail, but it’ll give your hair a sexy tousled look especially if you have natural curls or waves.

4. Beach Waves

Style your hair overnight by braiding it and releasing it into beach waves the next day. Waves are easy to create with a setting lotion if you prefer to style your hair right out of the shower.

Simply apply the setting lotion, braid your hair and blow dry it until it no longer feels damp. When you undo the braids, you’ll have beautiful beach waves.

If you’re looking to style your hair the night before, braid your hair and add one of the best durags you can find to tie your hair down without losing moisture.

5. Fishtail Braid

Fishtail braids are slightly more advanced than beach waves or side ponytails, but this trendy look is worth the effort.

Fishtail braids are the perfect solution to bringing more personality to your office attire. Experiment by braiding your fishtail into a bun or down the side of your head.

6. Tousled Pixie

Short hair needs love, too. Pump up the volume of your hair with a light gel mixed with your favorite mousse for the tousled pixie look.

Shampoo and lightly blow dry your hair before applying the product. Add a side part and play with your tousle until it falls forward in large waves creating a gorgeous face frame.

7. Knotless Braids

Another trendy, yet easy summer hairstyle is knotless braids. These braids were made popular by Zoe Kravitz because of their long flowing texture.

Knotless braids are a protective style that can last for months with the right maintenance.

How to Choose Your Easy Summer Hairstyles

The best thing about easy summer hairstyles is that there are options available no matter your hair texture, length, or lifestyle. You can get your hair braided today and not worry about styling your hair in the mornings for months on end.

Or, you can rely on your favorite products to shape your hair into a sexy coif each morning before work. The possibilities are only limited to the amount of time you have available to prep.
