Nothing says “I’m ready for summer!” like a short, trendy new haircut. But with all the focus on long, wavy hair recently, you might be stumped to find the best summer styles for short hair. Short hair just makes sense in the summertime. Hot and humid weather makes the ease of maintaining short hair a big selling point. So without further ado, here’s our favorite 3 short cuts to rock this summer.
1. The Sleek Summer Bob
We’ve all heard about the wavy bob that’s taken summer hair salons by storm the last two summers. But this year, it’s all about the sleek look and sharp lines that the long bob offer. The front layers of the sleek summer bob touch just above the shoulders, and the back is high enough that it provides a cooler option than a long ‘do. The best part about this cut, though, is that it’s super easy to style. Leave it down, pull it half up, or even throw it back in a ponytail when you need a more casual look.
2. The Tousled Pixie
Forget the straight-laced pixie cuts of last summer, this summer it’s all about getting a little wild with those layers. The tousled pixie takes the basic pixie cut and uses gel and styling products to give it a little more umph. The best part about this look is that all you need is a little styling gel and a quick run of your fingers through your hair, and you’re ready to head out with almost no prep time needed. Now that’s a perfect cut for the lazy days of summer.
3. The Short and Blunt
Similar to a bob, but way bolder, the short and blunt cut takes all the style of a bob and gives it a stronger statement with blunt cuts along the bottom. This cut can be worn both straight or wavy, which makes it incredibly versatile. You can transition from hanging out at the beach with a cocktail to a sleek dinner date in no time.
