For those who like their summer hair to have a little movement, try a hairstyle which adds plenty of interest by piecing some hair wax through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair to create a funky, texture filled daytime look. You can then build on that texture by showing off backcombed nighttime hair that has been set in place with a good dose of hairspray.

For most, summer starts at the beach and beachy daytime curls are what summer hair is all about! If you've got natural curls then show them off by spritzing sea salt spray into your locks and scrunching your hair with your hands. If your curls need some help then use a large barrel curling iron in wide sections of your hair to create the curls instead. You could also try plaiting damp hair, leaving it overnight and then shaking out some loose curls in the morning. As for your nighttime look, curls create some very soft and feminine texture in the hair and there's no better way to take advantage of that by sweeping your hair up into a pretty updo.
