3 simple summer hairstyles

I am always after new, fun hairstyles that are practical, chic and simple to achieve. Since we are in the season of warmer weather, trips to the beach, weekends at the lake or hot summer nights in the city. If you are like me, then finding an alternative to look summer chic with your 'do beyond the normal curls, braid or ponytail, then keep scrolling down. I have rounded up 3 simple summer styles for your hair.
3 simple summer hairstyles
 French Pony // This is perfect for medium to long hair. A simple side french braid or two, into a ponytail will keep your hair out of your face and off of your neck. Make sure to throw in some curls first or sleep with a low regular braid for some extra added texture.

Top Knot // this is perfect for those of you with short hair. It is like doing a messy bun but with less hair. I love this look even with my long hair. Spray in a little texture/beach spray and scrunch for that fun beachy look. 
3 simple summer hairstyles
Hair Scarf // Ok I am obsessed with this thanks to my sis. Perfect with hair down or up in a bun and looks effortlessly chic! Bring out those gorgeous silk scarves or hit up a cool vintage shop to find some hidden gems.

Tools for Styling:

These Clear Plastic Rubber Bands are perfect for braiding and ponytails.

This Dry Shampoo is ah-mazing and helps braids, buns and anything pulled up to stick better than clean hair. (Clean hair is just too slippery.) Also comes in this dark hair option.

For added texture and wave I love this Beach Spray which smells incredible and for the price is outstanding. This one is another fave if you're willing to spend a little more and also smells fab!

black & white

Happy Monday morning! I am so excited it is finally 4th of July week. It feels like our weekends just fly by these days, so it will be wonderful to have a couple extra days off with the hubs to enjoy some longer family time. We had an awesome weekend with gorgeous weather allowing us to break in the pool with a fun little BBQ and good friends. I hope you all had a great weekend too!
I am obsessed with vintage Levis and have acquired quite a collection as of late. Vintage ones are amazingly soft, broken in and just plain comfy. #heaven Have a great week.
