Bookmark These Hairstyles For The Hot Days Ahead

Get ready, sun worshippers, because summer is a-coming — and it couldn't be here fast enough. It was a long, rough, and cold winter in New York and if you're on the East Coast, the last thing that you probably want to see is your big, puffy parka. Of course, it's not all popsicles and long weekends ahead, we still have to worry about humidity and excessive heat.

That means you probably don't want your hair hanging in your face while laying out on your picnic blanket in the park come June. New season, new hair inspo, right? Forget your go-to messy bun or thrown-together ponytail, because there are plenty of cute ways to put your hair up in a hurry. For my fellow 4c guys and gals, we're able to save our twist-outs from sucky shrinkage (yay!) with my favorite look ahead. Or, if you're loving your on-trend lob, there are tons of flattering ways to show off your length, too.

Scroll on to see some of our favorite half-back hairstyles to have ready for summer.

Twist-outs take forever to finish, so why shouldn't you make your curls last as long as possible? You can wear this style after you take your twists down, or utilize it for day three hair — or beyond.
If you've ever envied Khloé Kardashian's half-up bun (or her access to Justine Marjan), here's your chance to DIY. Have plenty of bobby pins and texture spray handy.
Who needs a pair of Louboutins when you can simply feign height with your hair? This half-back gives you all of the volume.
Another half-bun, this time on shorter hair (we gotchu).
This variation of the 'do leaves the front of your hair loose, with a braided back that we love.
