It’s officially summer and we couldn’t be happier! For months we’ve been counting down and it’s finally time to flaunt our stylishly curated summer looks and hairstyles. To inspire our summer outfit and hairstyle arsenal for the summer months, we took inspiration from the street style set. Here are five totally cute, easy and chic hairstyle ideas for BBQ season.
5 Fashionable Hairstyle Ideas for BBQ Season
1. Tucked Hair
There’s always that one girl that attends a BBQ just to sit around and look cute. Hey, no judgement here! But if you’re going to sit around to show your outfit off from head-to-toe, make sure everything is on point. For instance, if your goal is to make your details stand out (like your statement earrings), opt for a hairstyle that allows you to do just that. This chic ear tuck look is very simple to do and all you need is a hidden bobby pin to make sure you keep it in place.
2. Side Ponytail
Not only is it BBQ season, it’s also off the shoulder tops, dresses and jumpsuit season too. Master the bare shoulder trend by wearing a sleek side ponytail. This way you’re not hiding the details of your top and the handwork you put into the gym all winter long. To up the ante on your hairstyle, use bobby pins to dress it up just a bit or to keep your growing bangs from popping out.
3. Gelled Low Bun
If you’re going for a super laid-back and chill look, we feel you. BBQs are mostly about kicking back with your friends, having a jolly time without worrying too much about your hairstyle or outfit. An easy hairstyle for this would be a simple gelled back low bun. After parting your hair how you prefer, run a dollop of gel through your hair and use a brush to smoothen and distribute. Our gel of choice is Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel because it’s perfect for sleek styles like this and has a great hold. Gather your hair into a low ponytail and wrap your ends into a bun and that’s all there is to it! If you want to elevate the look just a bit, throw a fun hair accessory into the mix.
There’s nothing worse than heading out into the summer heat with bangs. Here’s what you should do before heading out: Prep your hair with a dry shampoo like TRESemmé Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo. Even if you don’t necessarily need it at the moment, dry shampoo can be also used to prevent what we all know is going to happen—sweaty and oily bangs. Spritz it in, work it through, enjoy your BBQ and thank us later!
5. Long Wavy Undone Locks
Going for an easy-breezy look? Opt for this overnight style! The night before your festivities spray your hair with a salt spray like Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Sea Salt Texturizing Spray until it’s slightly damp and then create a French braid. Allow your hair to set overnight and release after you’re fully dressed. Comb through your hair with your fingers and set with a hairspray.
