7 Easy Summer Hairstyles for 2022


Are you looking for cute summer hairstyles to try that require zero skill to create? We’re here to help!

Below are seven chic and easy-to-create summer hairstyles that you need to try.  

  1. Hair Cover

A great easy summer hairstyle for hot weather is using hair coverings. Whether a scarf or bandana, hair accessories look put-together with minimal effort. 

You can use a bandana as a full cover or twist a scarf around as a headband. We recommend using silk or satin to protect your hair from frizz and friction.

  1. Beach Waves

Beach waves are an easy summer hairstyle for medium hair lengths and look like you came back from the beach. They are also perfect for either day or night looks.

You can create classic beach waves using a large curling iron wand. If you want to skip the heat, you can use heatless hair ribbons while sleeping. In the morning, you should have perfect tousled waves.

  1. Braided Pigtails

Braids in pigtails are a trendy hairstyle for 2022. They’re a cute summer hairstyle that looks polished while requiring little effort. 

Get this look with simple braids or double French braids for an edgier feel. The advantage of creating French braids is they tend to last all day long. However, sometimes French braids can draw attention to a thinning scalp. If you choose French braids, use Toppik Hair Building Fibers. They blend undetectably with existing hair strands to instantly create the appearance of thicker, fuller hair.

  1. Loose Baby Braids

Baby braids are an easy summer hairstyle perfect for short hair. Instead of thick, full braids, you make small, loose braids that frame your face. It’s a casual, beachy look that works for most hair lengths, making it a very versatile style.

Start with a middle part and take a section on either side of your face. Braid one side in a loose braid no larger than ½ inch in width and repeat on the other side. Feel free to add small braids around the crown of your head for added texture.

  1. Wispy Top Knot

If you’re looking to keep your hair out of your face this summer, a fun and messy top knot is for you. This messy bun is effortless to create and is easier on your hair and scalp than tight styles. 

You can use a large scrunchie or a few hairpins to tie a bun together for a more polished look. The key is not to worry about making it look perfect and allow some loose wisps to come through. 

  1. 90s Hair Flip

We recommend trying a 90s-style hair flip for a stylish and easy summer hairstyle. The hair is straight on the top with large curls that flip at the ends. It’s a chic style perfect for a summer date night or strolling around on a less humid day. 

You can use a hair straightener or hair rollers to achieve this look. If you use a straightener, iron your hair and flip the straightener upward when you get to your ends to create large curls. If you want to use a heatless option, take large hair rollers and roll your hair up while it’s damp. Once your hair dries, remove the rollers and use a volumizing spray around your crown.

  1. Curtain Bangs

Curtain bangs are a fun summer cut to frame your face. If you don’t want full curtain bangs, ask your stylist for long layers in the front. This will give you shorter pieces to frame your face while keeping your length. 

You can add curtain bangs to a ponytail or bun or keep them as subtle face-framing detail with your hair down. We recommend styling with a middle part for the best face-framing effects.
