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.
