The summertime presents plenty of opportunities for us to experiment more with our appearance. Many women in the natural hair community can agree that they wait all winter long to take advantage of wash and go days in the summer season. Why so long? Quite frankly, some of us are just a bit lazier during the winter and prefer not to deal with certain hairstyles at all. After all, wash and go styles are popular summer natural hairstyles, as you get the benefit of air-drying your hair on the go, which is something you cannot do during the winter season.
If you’re thinking of joining the bandwagon and trying your hand at some simple hairstyles that are suitable for the summer season, read on for our top three natural hairstyle picks:
Popular Summer Natural Hairstyles: 3 Easy Styles
1. The Wash and Go
Yes, we are starting with the wash and go hairstyle. This is one of the easiest and most fuss-free styles you can do with your hair during the summer season. Having the opportunity to air-dry your hair frees up so much time on your hands which we all want. To nail this look though, your styling game has to be on point. We advise using hairstyling products that will give you hold and definition to ensure your wash and go style will last throughout the week. Our go-to product at the moment is Bed Head by TIGI Foxy Curls Contour Cream. Rake it through damp strands section by section then allow your hair to dry completely on its own. If needed, you can use the plopping method to speed things up a bit as well.
2. The Half-Up
This style above is not your ordinary half-up style, which is why we love it for the summer season. Opt for this look for festivals or beach vacations this season. Split your curly strands into two sections to create space buns and pin in place. Add shine to your style using, TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum.
3. The TWA
Having a head full of curly hair during the hazy summer season for some is just too much to handle. The Teeny Weeny Afro (TWA) is one of the most popular summer natural hairstyles. Some women prefer to go really short during the summer as its less hassle and you don’t have to worry about feeling extra hot when having your hair graze against your skin on a humid day. Go for a tapered cut, or an all-around even ’fro. Style with a hair gel that defines your curls like TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel.
