When you’re heading to the beach or getting ready for a summer pool party, the last thing you want to do is spend hours on your hair, but you still want it to look great. That’s where these 3 easy summer hairstyles come in!

But first, here are a couple of tips for keeping your hair in tip-top shape so it’s ready for any style:

thumbnail2Use our Deep Cleansing Shampoo 00 after swimming to remove chlorine and keep your hair healthy even when spending a lot of time in the pool.

1. The Alternative Bun

This look from Kate at The Small Things Blog is great for those really hot days when you need to keep your hair off your neck. Called the “Alternative Bun,” it’s a piecy look that has some character that a traditional bun may lack.

2. Basic Boho Braids

The second easy summer hairstyle we love is called Basic Boho Braids from Emily over at The Freckled Fox. Add a stylish hat like Emily does and you’re ready for that pool party or concert in the park!
