Foolproof Summer Hairstyles and Trendy Sunglasses Combinations

Lock in your summer look from the neck up. 

Summer is a time when accessories really make or break an outfit. Summer hairstyles and trendy sunglasses (when expertly combined) can have you looking put-together and intentional in seconds. The secret to getting that high fashion, street style energy is in pairing the right styles with the right shades. Read on for some summer hairstyles and trendy sunglasses combinations that will inspire you to test this theory. We know we’ll be wearing some variation of these combinations all summer long:

1. Sleek Bob

Some days call for a two-piece suit and confidence-boosting pair of sunglasses. After all, the clothes make the woman, right? We love the combination of a sleek hairstyle and tortoiseshell shades. To us, it’s the epitome of a classy style that will have you feeling ready to take on the world.

2. The Shag

As far as of ease of styling goes, the shag will be your best friend. Photo credit:

Wash and wear styles are a girl’s best friend. The shag is the latest in easy-to-wear hairstyles that require absolutely no styling. Pair your air-dried strands with a slight cat-eyed pair of sunglasses to really make a statement.

3. Never-Ending Beach Waves

The secret to air-dried waves that don’t get frizzy is growing your hair long enough to have it weigh itself down. Hold off until the end of the summer to make any moves in the haircut department and wear your hair long for the duration of the summer. A few spritzes of Bed Head by TIGI Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray will give your waves a touch of definition.

4. The ’90s Called

This ’90s-inspired summer hairstyles and trendy sunglasses combo is one of our faves. Thin retro sunglasses are the throwback you need to pair with your half-up messy style. A plaid shirt and a wristlet wallet are the perfect finishing touches to this throwback style!

5. Vampy Vibes

We love a high contrast look and we can’t get enough of vampy vibes paired with a sleek bombshell blonde hairstyle. Comb your hair back into a sleek low ponytail and mist it with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Smooth Hold Level 2. This will ensure your style stays sleek and frizz-free. Make sure to include a pair of oversized shades to tie the look together.

6. Road Trip-Ready

Summer is for using up some of those vacation days you’ve been saving for a rainy day and hitting the road. Whether you’re road-tripping across the States or traveling a bit farther, you’ll need trendy shades, a cross-body bag, and a wash and wear style. Let your hair do its thing while you’re on vacation and give your strands a break, too. This summer hairstyles and trendy sunglasses combination is one of our favorites—nothing says summer like easy waves and sparkly shades.
