As temperatures continue to climb and summer just seven weeks away, a lot of women (including myself) are searching for what may become our signature summer look. And if you’re a woman who is looking for fun ways to incorporate summer into her daily life, starting with a brand new look may be exactly what you need!
In the summertime, women tend to opt for shorter hairstyles due to the heat, which prompted me to gather a short hair appreciation post. Whether you’re into braids, bundles, bobs or pixie cuts, this post features short hairstyles to accommodate everyone. I believe we can all agree that there has always been a certain level of fierceness and confidence associated with shorter hairstyles and these gorgeous women prove that you can slay all of these looks and do so effortlessly!
Tapered cuts are perfect for women who are looking for natural hairstyles with a bit of edge and versatility.
Bantu knots are a great example of rocking a short and fun hairstyle without having to cut your natural hair. It also makes the summertime heat and humidity easier to deal with. You can keep it simple with Bantu knots all over (right) or you can create a fun and flirty look like the one seen on YouTube beauty vlogger Missy Lynn (left) by creating Bantu knots in the front and leaving the back curly and free.
A pixie cut, which requires minimal maintenance, is only for the bold, fearless, and confident woman. There is a different level of self-confidence seen in a woman who can rock a classic pixie cut and I think we can agree that both of these women slayed this look!
The asymmetical bob has to be one of my favorite short hairstyles. This versatile cut not only frames the face, but can be worn with a middle part, side part, straight, curly, and has so much body!
It’s no secret that black women use braids as a way to escape from all of the maintence that we have to perform daily on our natural hair, not to mention it is also a protective style yet very creative. The braided bob is a look that has grown on me over the last couple of years and like any braided style, would be ideal for the upcoming summer months!
