15 Cute Summer Hairstyles
Welcome! If you are visiting from Pinterest - thanks for stopping by! I encourage you to look through some of my other posts on style and beauty – theres tons more tips and style photos to look through! I know the Pin says 11 – BUT since there the original post with this pin I have gotten so many lovely comments! I added even more fun ways to style your hair this summer!
Once summer starts in with it’s heat and humidity, all best are off with fancy schmancy hair. That is of course if it’s not date night and I go straight from the car to the restaurant. Then the curling iron may make an appearance. But most often, when it get warm and sticky, I like to keep my hair off my back and neck.
I came up with a few cute summer hairstyles that I regularly use when the sunshine and warm summers start up! The above Pinned picture has 11 - since then I have added a few to up the total to 15. A mama can’t have too many styles to turn to, especially ones that don’t take very long to do!
Oh and here’s the kicker…I am also over at my lovely bloggy friend Carrie’s blog, Making Lemonade, today as well with even more ways to style your hair….Here you’ll find both the ones I wrote for her guest post and some more I threw in last minute to come up with 15 total Cute summer Hairstyles!
Cute Summer Hairstyles
The Simple Half up/Half Down
This requires a hair tie. But only as a guest appearance. Pull hair into a half up pony using a hair tie. Pull the pony loose a bit and separate hair, making a hole, at the crown above the hair tie into 2 sections. Put pony through the hole. Secure pony under the hair tie with colored bobby pins, criss crossing from both sides. Pull hair tie out. Creates an “effortless” looking interesting half up hairstyle!
Side Fishtail Bun
Braid hair into side fishtail braid. Take braid and wrap into bun. Secure using pins. Add a little extra prettiness with the Golden Leaf Pin from Bijoux by Allison.
Front Fishtail Braid
Braid hair into fishtail braid starting from side crown and working back inserting new pieces as you go until you get close to your opposite side ear. Secure with pins.
Fun with Bobby Pins
Part hair where you normally would. Secure hair with multiple (3-5) pins. This showcases the cool pin art you may have created and pulls those pesky over grown bang off your face. Great style for quick, after beach, salty water hair!
Criss Cross Half up/Half down
Take air only from front section (not close to ears) and pull back teasing a bit at the top, then secure with pins, with pins inserted horizontally. Take one section from one side of head near ears, pull across the already inserted horizontal pins, and insert bobby pin cross wise covering the original pins. Take a section from the opposite side and repeat.
Criss Cross Half Up/Half Down with Low Bun
Same as above but twist remainder of hair then wrap all of it into a low bun. Secure with many bobby’s until confident. (usually takes me about 5-10).
Simple Side Pull Back
Pull hair from deep part to opposite side and secure with fun bobby’s. (I used Bijoux by Allison – Golden Leaf)
Side Twisted Pull back
Twist a section of hair from a deep part back incorporating new tiny sections along the way until you are above the opposite ear.

The Hat Day
Yes, this totally counts, and in my book, is one of my go to’s on rainy days! So easy and can even suffice when you are in a hurry (as most mommies are) and can’t dry your hair all the way! Course this may only work for you on non-work days!
The Side Fishtail Braid
Pull hair to one side and fishtail braid. Secure with an elastic at the end. Pull hair on each side of braid to create a purposefully messy look! Perfect for those humid days when your hair gets out of control anyways!
The Side Rope Braid
Separate your hair into 2 sections and twist each in the same direction. Take both sections and twist them together in the opposite direction as you twisted each of the sections.
The Half up Hair Bow
Pull hair into a half up pony, but do not pull hair all the way through, leaving a “tail”. Separate the top, (non tail) into 2 sections, and pin them with bobby pins at the back part, concealing the pins. Take the tail and fold over the middle, pin in place. Viola, a bow without being to Minnie Mousey!
The Messy bun with side Braid
Part hair on a deep part. braid normally, with out adding pieces, over to the opposite side of hair. Secure with pin. Take remainder of hair into a low, messy bun. Pull bun until pieces start to fall out a bit. Secure some of the loose pieces until satisfied with messy bun.
