Summer calls for effortless styles that will require little maintenance to keep looking their best. Many long summer haircuts now available are low-maintenance versions of popular cuts with lots of texture for effortless style.
Celebrity hairstylist Joseph Maine’s advice
Joseph Maine advises clients with thin textures prone to frizz in humid climates to opt for flowing layers, an effective solution for adding definition and dynamics. Sweeping curtain bangs are also recommended to add dimension and refresh an existing look.
A chin-length bob is a low-maintenance style option for wavy or curly locks. It offers plenty of texture, while short bangs frame your face to soften the look and keep it from being too structured. Use Unite’s Leave-In Conditioning Spray for best results.
A stacked chin-length bob with choppy layers adds edge and character to any look. The full yet deconstructed silhouette frames your face perfectly while maintaining a professional look. Deep side parts and swooping bangs add the finishing touches to this sweet, angled bob cut. A textured finish gives it a modern feel and removes extra weight from thin locks, making it ideal for acceptable hair types. To add drama, incorporate highlights on top for light-and-dark contrast.
Medium-Length Cut with Textured Ends
This medium haircut is ideal for a long bob and pixie cuts. It features long layers that feather at the ends, adding volume and movement. It’s easy to style and maintain sleekness with a frizz-fighting leave-in conditioner on damp hair before blow-drying.
Layers can help frame your face and make thin hair appear fuller, like this chic layered bob style with subtle balayage highlights and face-framing layers. Strong and defined natural waves can be emphasized with angled layers. To achieve beachy texture, use a curling iron for loose, tousled waves and finish with Davines Texture Mist for hold and definition. This style works equally well without bangs.
U-shaped haircut with Soft Waves
U-shaped haircuts work particularly well for long, wavy, or curly textures as they add movement and volume. This style features shorter sides that frame your face, while the longer top softens over your shoulders, creating movement and volume. The U-shape also helps relieve pressure at the base and sides, making short hair appear fuller. Regular trim appointments for base trimming and maintaining shape are recommended.
An elegant long bob is ideal for adding fullness without bulk. Opt for a low chin length or below and create dimension through subtle highlights for a sleek silhouette. Regular base trims and blow-dry/flatten sessions are essential for maintaining U-shape and layered cuts.
Messy Shoulder-Length Bob
This short, messy bob is perfect for casual and trendy looks that are easy to maintain for any special event. The rosy-red dye adds dimension, making it suitable for beach and office attire. Achieve an elegant, messy bob with wavy locks using hair gel or texturizing foam for a tousled finish. Adding highlights enhances the style.
For fine hair, a chin-length bob is an ideal haircut. Volumetric layers add volume, while subtle balayage highlights lengthen the strands.
