Beat the heat with The Best Summer Date Night Hairstyles!
Don't fear the heat this summer, especially when it comes to your hair
! There are many ways to create beautiful, fun hairstyles
that will keep you feeling cool and looking refreshed. Is there even a better way to feel confident on a hot summer date than with your hair looking fabulous? I don't think so. Keeping your style while still accommodating the heat can be tricky. It's all about balance and finding the right summer style that fits you! Even when focusing primarily on the hairstyle, you should still check out other articles on the PLE blog to see some of the best summer hair colors
and summer hair care tips to ensure styling goes the way you expect it too. Healthy hair and color guarantee confidant styling! Depending on your length of hair, some hairstyles can make any hot summer date night that much hotter. Usually, keeping your hair natural within the style works well with the heat. For example, if you have curly hair keep it curly. Or, if you have naturally straight hair, keep it straight. Doing so can help with any humidity
you may run into during those blazing summer lunch dates or long summer nights. The last thing you want it putting time and effort into a hairstyle just for it to disappear.
Short Hair Beauties:
You all are already halfway there! Having a short hair look
can definitely be a plus during the summer. Keeping hair off your shoulders can be especially helpful, because let's be honest, who likes hair sticking to sweaty, or better yet dewy, shoulders? Not very sexy. A great way to further accentuate your already cute cut is by adding some accessories, and maybe consider going for a half up-half down look. This way, it seems as if you put effort into your hair even though the short hairstyle is sexy enough! Find a clip that matches your personal style or outfit and go for an effortless look. Just pull back the hair that usually frames your face and clip it back towards the middle of your head. A clip is commonly loose fitting and lets the hair breath even in the pulled back position. This is perfect for warm to hot weather. Another great accessory for short hair in the summer is headbands. With the hair already off the shoulders, a headband is a great way to express style. My favorite is the fabric headbands that are perfect for keeping the baby hairs out of your face while keeping your fashion and hairstyle on trend.
Medium Hair Stunners:
With a little extra length than a short hair beauty, there is some room to play with medium hair. Medium length hair is excellent for creating hairstyles that can make your hair appear shorter or keep it from hanging down your neck. Date night is about having fun, and not sweating the heat. Pun intended! While still being able to incorporate accessories if you want to, medium length hair looks terrific in a messy bun. Messy buns
are a great way to feel fun and flirty while still staying cool in the summer heat. This is a hairstyle that is also super easy to accomplish. Throw it up in a messy high bun for that "pineapple look" if you have curly hair. Let some strands and curls hang loosely around the frame of your face or right from the bun itself. This makes the bun look super effortless and keeps it flirty. Summer months are a great time to explore your playful side and what better way than to start with your hair? Another option is to keep the bun lower. Either in the middle of the back of your head or down towards the nape of the neck (in the middle or on your best side). This can be done with curly
, or straight hair
and brings a sense of elegance to a simple hairdo. Pull the hair straight back or towards the desired side for your bun. Remember, it doesn't have to be perfectly smooth. That's why it's called a messy bun! Wrap your hair around a few times to form a bun and hold it in place with a hair tie. Now, you may have to use some additional support, i.e., bobby pins
, but this is only to ensure that your bun doesn't come spiraling out of the hair tie. Pair your elegant bun with a cute summer dress, and you'll be date night ready in no time.
Long Hair Goddesses:
Having long hair during the summer can be a pain! The most natural thing to do it throw it up in a top knot and call it a day. Of course, like the other styles, it's an excellent way to keep your hair from creating more heat, but is it the best way? Well, if top knots are your thing then go for it! They are really quick to achieve and can definitely be dressed up with accessories, jewelry, and outfits. But my favorite, yet still leisurely, hairstyle for long hair is a sleek ponytail. The great thing about a sleek pony is not having to deal with the loose hairs when you are out and about. Although those hairs are only a bit bothersome, a sleek look takes care of that for you. A sleek ponytail
can be done with pretty much any length of hair and looks fantastic! However, it's so much easier if you have long hair. You may need a few products to help you achieve this look. Hairspray
to tame the fly-away hairs or gel to keep the hair pulled back will work nicely. The positioning of the ponytail is entirely up to you. Wherever you feel the ponytail looks best, go for it! Pull the hair back and gently comb the hair into the position which you've chosen for your ponytail. Add the gel or hairspray and continue to smooth the hair back. As mentioned before, this helps keep the pony looking sleek and put together. Next, find a good sturdy hair tie that will allow you to hold the ponytail in place tightly. The last thing we need is for the pony to slip and slide all over the place! You can keep the hair tie showing or wrap a strand of hair around it to conceal the hair tie. Secure it with a bobby pin, and it's finished! Whip that sleek pony back and forth during summer date night, and he will be mesmerized by you!
