Pulled Back vs. Let Down
If you love the versatility of length, but can’t stand the summer sun, sometimes pulling your back into a cute ponytail is the way to go. Take note from Kelly Rowland. She has a great look when her hair is down, but she still maintains the sexy when it’s pulled back as well. It’s great way to stay cool, without cutting your hair.

Light vs. Dark
Naturally, people go lighter in the summer. Rihanna switched it up and took her edgier ‘do to another level when she lightened it up. Her golden hue is a great look for her. Remember: If you’re going lighter, maintain the color and keep those roots hidden. If you have lighter hair and want to switch it up for the season, go dark. Hair tends to look healthier when it’s darker and it’s much more unexpected in the summertime.

Curly vs. Straight
To switch up your everyday look, there’s nothing like adding some curl to it. Hair always draws attention to it when you add volume to it. Curls also tend to make you look younger and softer. As you can see, Beyonce looks much more soft and subtle with her curls as opposed to her fierce, sleek straight look. Keep in mind, straight hair can give you a sleek and polished look which is great for summer nights

Long vs. Short
Any smoldering day in the middle of July will make you consider chopping your locks off. And maybe that’s not such a bad thing. If you’ve got strong facial features and pretty eyes like Eva Marcelle, then short hair is for you. So many times we hide behind our hair when it’s actually supposed to enhance our look. If you long hair works for your type of face, then embrace. Play with different hairstyles and make the most out of the length of your hair.

Bangs vs. No Bangs
If you look at it this way, hair is really just an outfit for head. Bangs can really make a difference and frame your face. If you’ve got a longer face (particularly your forehead) then bangs can flatter your look. But be careful and don’t make them too long or too short. If bangs aren’t your cup of tea, switch up your part and find what works best for your face.
