Recently I just couldn’t help studying, closely, a blog post about the latest swimsuit trends from the catwalk; and in an attempt to put the information to good use (rather than just ogling it) I thought it would be a good idea to make some comments about great swimsuit hairstyles. As usual, celebrities are the best source of inspiration, so if you’re enjoying the warmer months and you’re after a fresh ‘do to complement your brand-spanking-new swimsuit, check out these celebrity swimsuit hairstyles.

Ashlee Simpson’s Sleek and Sexy Swimsuit Hairstyle

Ashlee Simpson hairstylesIt seems, according to fashion websites like, that a current trend in swimsuits this season is the cut-away swimsuit. Basically they’re bikinis or one-piece swimsuits with sections removed, creating a strap-like patterned effect. Now these swimsuits are quite busy-looking, so it’s best to stick with a relatively simple haircut: perhaps a sleek medium-length look that just skims the shoulders, like Ashlee Simpson’s.

Holly Kiser’s Short Bangs Hairstyle

Often these swimsuits (like the cut-away swimsuits) commonly appear in muted colors, like black, cream or shades of peach, so as to not draw attention away from the detail of the swimsuits themselves. A short hairstyle like Holly Kiser’s is a good idea for the same reason, and to accentuate the swimsuit’s contrasting shoulder design. Bangs are in too, so Holly’s hair is a perfect choice all round. 

Jessica Harp’s Long Curly Hairstyle

If that’s the case then grab a big and sexy hairstyle too because sometimes it feels great to not do things by halves. Jessica Harp’s certainly got the hairstyle for the gig: it’s long with plenty of body and bounce and a definite hint of class.
