Summer hairstyles ideas

Its summer time and it can get quite hot here in Hong Kong. As I have long hair, it sometimes can be quite unbearable under the extreme heat. Therefore, I always like to try out new hairstyles so I can cool down myself and look nice at the same time. Below are some hairstyles I have tried and found it super easy and quick and can perfectly finish a casual summer look.

Side French Braid

This is such an easy hairstyle, no matter you are a beginner or a pro, you can still master this. This hairstyle is also great to get all your bangs or bits and pieces at the front away from your face.

You can also do this with dutch braid. Simply place the strands of hair under each other instead of over for a more popping braid.

Instead of braiding all your hair, you can leave some out for a messier look.

You can also do half regular braid and half fishtail.

DIY salt spray

I love to add volume to my hair using salt spray. With how often I use it, I prefer to make my own as it is cheap and simple. All you need is a spray bottle, warm water, some salt, hair gel and conditioner (optional). You basically mix everything together in the spray bottle and you’ll have your very own salt spray! The exact measurements vary to how you like but for a small-medium sized bottle, I usually put 1-1.5 teaspoon of salt to it. For the gel and conditioner, you only need a little. You can also add some essence oil to make it smell better. This is great if you are a everyday user of salt spray as it can sometimes be quite expensive or if you suddenly ran out of the one you are using.

Faux Braids

Faux braids are great if you have layered/shorter hair or if you are not as confident with your braiding skills. Most faux braids are using the technique pull through which requires a few more elastics. There are loads of tutorial on the internet, you can always search for different styles and experiment with it!
