5 Hairstyles to Try This Summer

If you’re looking to change up your look this summer, you don’t need to replace your entire wardrobe, in fact, you don’t need to spend much money at all. The way you style your hair can make a world of a difference. Here are five easy hairstyles that are perfectly versatile for any type of look this summer. All you need are some bobby pins and hair ties and you’re good to go!

1—The Half-up Bun. The first style is super effortless and looks it too. Instead of a normal half-up/half-down style, mix it up by tying the top half into a simple bun.  You can curl/wave your hair and enhance these waves with a texturizing spray for a more boho look.


2—Half-up Waterfall Braids. Continuing with the half-up/half-down style, you can waterfall braid the sides to add a more intricate detail along the sides. You can even secure your hair in the back with a detailed hair pin.


3—Low Braided Side Bun. It’s summer and it’s hot out, so sometimes you just need to get it all out of the way. To give your bun this look, braid your hair to side first, and then twist it into the bun. Then, slightly pull out some parts of the braid to give it more body. Leave some wisps of hair out in the front so that it doesn’t look too formal.


4—Side Braid. Sounds simple enough, right? It is, but, try to make it more interesting by adding some extra braids into your hairstyle. Before braiding your hair, braid one of the three parts and work that into your side braid. You can also braid a piece from the other side of your hair so that a braid wraps around your head into the side braid. Try tying the braid with a bow hair tie.


5—Deep Hair Part. As easy as it is to part your hair differently, it can tremendously change your look. A deep hair part can give you an edgier vibe. Twist your hair behind your ear on one side and add a bold ear cuff to take it to another level.


These hairstyles only take minutes to recreate, so grab some hair ties and bobby pins and get going!

How to Dress for Adventure This Summer

I’m going to be honest with you, the most adventurous I’ve been this summer is getting out of bed and spontaneously whipping up a snack in the middle of the night. However, summer’s just begun, and ‘tis the season of travel and adventure. When you live in Jersey, frequent trips to the beach or boardwalk are common. The problem I’ve always had with making these trips is wanting to be comfortable, but at the same time wanting to look cute for all the pictures you might take along the way and there. You know it’s going to be hot all day, especially in a cramped car with all your friends. Although a dress would be easy and cute, you’re not going to get the freedom of movement that you would in a pair of shorts.

My favorite summer staple this year is this pair of mom shorts. What makes mom shorts different from regular shorts? They’re slightly roomier all around, high-waisted, and look great when paired with practically anything. I paired these shorts with a jade green ribbed halter bodysuit. The bodysuit adds a pop of color to the black ensemble—for those of us who love black too much to give it up in the summer.

Complete adventure outfit

Of course, every Fashionista needs a cute purse, even on an adventure. This compact crossbody has a snakeskin design along the sides and is the perfect size for travel. I paired the outfit with these simple black block heel sandals that are super comfortable and extremely versatile.

I kept it fairly simple with any other accessorizing. Although the basic tattoo chokers are still cute, they’re starting to get a little tired. Trade it in for a dainty chain choker like the one I’m wearing. It’s simple and you won’t be fidgeting with it all day. All you need to finish it off is your favorite pair of shades and you’re good to go!
