Summer Spontaneity: 10 Styles to Switch to for the Season

The 'Summer you' is begging for a new style

Summer has finally arrived and the sun and warm weather have us all feelin’ some type of way. Now that you can finally commit to summer style and fashion, perhaps you’re feeling a bit spontaneous. Summertime always has a way of bringing out the impulsive side of us, we call it ‘summer spontaneity.’ If you’ve been considering changing up your look for a fresh start this season, we encourage you to use your summer spontaneity and go for that style you’ve always dreamed of, but were too nervous to see through. We’ve gathered 10 of our favorite looks that might just take a leap of faith to decide on. We know you’re going to love the outcome, so just say yes!

summer spontaneity dark roots
Go blonde, but stay connected to your roots.

1. Blonde with Dark Roots

If you want to change up your hair color but don’t have the time to go in for multiple appointments to change your entire color, keep your roots dark and dye the rest a shade of golden blonde! This look is great because it adds a dramatic change but is lower maintenance than dyeing your hair completely blonde. Use the Bed Head by TIGI New Dumb Blonde Shampoo to keep your blonde color as brilliant as the day you got it dyed.

A bright color is sure to turn heads this summer.

2. Bright and Bold

A bright and exaggerated hair color is the perfect way to turn heads this summer and lighten up your entire look. This look is great when you choose a natural hair color and bump it up until it’s its brightest form. We suggest taking auburn all the way to a bright orange, or a dark black to a wearable blue, and even blonde to a bright yellow.

summer spontaneity natural
Be unapologetically you, natural hair and all.

3. Natural

If you spend your year constantly changing up your hairstyles and trying new colors and treatments to modify your ‘do, perhaps this is the best time to give your hair a rest and wear your natural hair. ‘Summer spontaneity’ doesn’t have to be a complete 180 of a hairstyle, it can be as easy and checking in on your natural locks and finding ways to enhance its health and shine. Introduce Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner into your routine to help get your hair back to its damage-free self.

Get a blunt cut on your bangs for a fun way to change up the framing of your face!

4. Blunt Bangs

These blunt bangs are so bold and edgy, who wouldn’t want to rock them all summer long? Whether they’re completely blunt or have a slight arch to add more shape, bangs are great to create a new way to frame your face.

summer spontaneity bob
Chop it all off!

5. Cute Bob

Just chop it all off, we dare you. If your locks have gotten long, tired, and damaged, say goodbye to all of your long Winter hair problems and get yourself a light and effortless bob. This style is great for Summer because it will keep you cool and it’s almost too easy to maintain.

summer spontaneity pixie cut
The summer heat will be no match for your pixie cut.

6. Pixie Cut

Okay, if you didn’t think the bob was a short enough style, then you need to take the leap and get yourself a pixie cut. This short hairstyle is perfect if you live in a particularly hot climate and despite its very short length, there is a lot of texture to be created by using Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel and haphazardly moving your hair around until it looks the way you desire.

summer spontaneity perm
Enhance your curls with a perm.

7. Curly Perm

Commit to your curl by getting a perm. This style is coming back on the scene and is a great way to enhance your natural hairstyle. If you aren’t naturally curly then this would also seem like the opportune style to finally have that head of luscious curls you’ve always been craving! Once you’re all permed up, use Dove Style+Care Defining Mousse to emphasize your new style.

summer spontaneity pop of pastel
Pastels are the perfect soft touch of color for summer.

8. Pop of Pastel

Does this photo not sell you on the idea of smothering your hair in a soft shade of pastel? If a vibrant color isn’t your cup of tea, then pastels are a beautiful alternative. This style will work best on blondes, platinums or those who are committed to the lengthy bleaching process this may require.

summer spontaneity hair extensions
Get instantly longer and luscious hair with semi-permanent hair extensions.

9. Hair Extensions

So you cut your hair for fun and are now realizing you want long, sexy hair back, we get it. Just because you can’t snap your fingers and make your hair instantly grow doesn’t mean there isn’t an incredibly easy solution. Pick up some hair extensions or look into tape-ins to create a completely new hairstyle centered around long locks.

summer spontaneity two toned
Lighten up just the top layer of your hair for this edgy two-toned style.

10. Two-Toned

For those who simply can’t make up their mind, a two-toned style is best. Two-toned styles can take on many different forms, but we think this layered look is totally fashion forward and is a cool spin on blending blonde and brunette shades. This style screams summer spontaneity!
