Five New Summer Hairstyles To Try

Jun 10, 2013

Summer is the season for fun beach holidays, hanging out by the pool and enjoying the sunshine. A bright new season means it's the perfect time to think about a new hairstyle! Even if you don't want a drastic hair cut or color change, you still want to change things up a bit and have a host of new hairstyles under your belt to suit any occasion. And where better to look for inspiration than from your favorite celebrities? Kidzworld have selected our favorite Hollywood hairstyles to inspire you! 

Textured Bob

Go for the chop and opt for an on-trend bob like Jennifer Lawrence's stylish hair! This works best on hair with a bit of natural wave or texture to it - go for a super-short cropped bob or go for a mid-length like Jennifer's. A simple look to recreate at home, all you need to do is apply some mousse to your hair when it's damp and rough dry it while blow-drying it. Scrunch to make it look really messy. Finish with a light mist of hairspray and voila - a messy bob that's perfect for the hot summer days ahead! 

New Bangs

Make an instant style statement with some new bangs! It will add instant oomph to both long and short hairstyles and will give a playful, retro vibe to updos and ponytails - it's a great way to show off some on-trend 1960s style. Not only does it frame your face, cutting some bangs into your hair also draws attention to your eyes and lets them take center stage. We love Lily Allen's thick and glossy bangs - talk about some serious style! Add a bit of choppy texture to your bangs for more of a rock chic cool. 

Pastel Streaks

Summer is the time of year to let your hair down so why not color it with fun and fleeting pastel streaks? Most hair trends start on the catwalk and this season it's all about combing in the pastels for summer! Designers combined tones of violet, blue and pink to add that extra bit of oomph to summer hair. Get the look yourself by simply picking up some on-trend comb-in color and streaking your hair like Rachel McAdams. Not only does it look totally cool but it's temporary so it just washes out! 

Statement Headband

Get on the fast track to cool summer hair and get creative with hair accessories! A statement headband is our favorite way to work this pretty trend and Sienna Miller's floral headband makes her outfit go from simple to gorgeous - this style is perfect for parties, festivals and weddings. The best part is that it works no matter what length your hair and you can swap it out for something more casual and wear it with jeans too! 

Bouffant Bow

Channel Bella Thorne's pretty bouffant bow for a special occasion! Inspired by the 1960s old Hollywood glamour bouffant, this standout hairdo is sure to get you noticed! This modern interpretation is easy to pull off and looks great on both shorter hair and long hair. Simply add mousse to damp hair to add volume and blowdry your hair while scrunching it for texture. Once it's dry, tease and backcomb the top section to get some major height. Pin back the front section with bobby pins and finish with hairspray. Pull out some wispy bits to frame your face. Then all you have to do is add the finishing touch - a cute bow or any other pretty accessory!

The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there. that's a good point.
