Live that easy life with these low-maintenance haircuts for the summer

Live that easy life with these low-maintenance haircuts for the summer

Summer is here! And with it brings the usual hair worries about being too hot, curls that don’t last, and everlasting struggles with frizz. No matter what your particular hair dilemma is, summer seems bring out the worst hair in all of us.

If you want this summer to be monumental, one you remember because you were able to sit back and enjoy every moment and not worry about your hair, then we’ve got the cuts for you.

Not only do these fab cuts give you an enviable look, but we’ve got some tips to keep your haircut fresh and your hair healthy all summer long.

The blunt bob

The blunt bob is now the coolest haircut around mostly because it’s easy, and being a little bit messy only makes the haircut look better. A blunt haircut can be perfect for any length or thickness of hair. It works with curly or straight hair, and a blunt bob can be managed with hair that does everything but obey.

Today’s blunt cut trends toward a shorter bob, but it can be lengthened if you simply cannot give up the easy ponytail. If you do need that ponytail, don’t forget to use damage-free hair ties. These are a girl’s best friend, as they give you the style you want without pulling too hard and causing breakage.

The shag

The shag is back and with a vengeance. This unisex hairstyle was a huge hit in the 1970s and many different celebrities, from Brady Bunch mom actress Florence Henderson to rock ‘n roll icon Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones, rocked this look.

Today, the shag haircut features fewer feathers and more natural wave and healthy body. It’s a perfect low-maintenance cut for most hair lengths, but it’s especially fun on medium length hair because you get more variety in the layering.

Adding more layers around your face gives it more movement and frames you better. If you have a natural wave or combination hair, this is perfect to wear as a wash-and-go style.

Speaking of washing your hair, we’ve got a great tip for you that will help you keep those natural curls soft and lush. A smoothing hair wrap is just the trick to help wick out the moisture, and then air dry your hair for natural curls without the frizz.

Long layers

If you prefer long or medium length hair, then long layers can be your summer savior. A skilled hairstylist can create a cut that’s full of volume and body but doesn’t need a lot of product and work.

The goal of this haircut is to keep your length, so you have the versatility you love for ponytails, messy buns, long and sexy date looks, and wash-and-go ease.

For people with thick hair, your stylist is going to remove a lot of the hair weight to get the right look. If you’ve never had your hair thinned before, this will feel strange at first. Your hair will feel lighter, and the first time you wash it you’ll be surprised how little is there, yet it will look more full than ever. That’s the beauty of long layers, they make you look amazing.

The best part of each of these haircuts is that you still have some versatility. Going with a natural air-dried look is the trend today, but it’s not always easy to pull off, and most people need to get a little extra help from styling products and a blow dryer or curling iron.

With the right cut, you can limit the amount of work you have to do to get the natural look you’re going for. With proprietary vitamins to build strength, growth, and moisture from the inside out and handy tools like damage-free hair ties and a smoothing hair wrap to protect your hair, the Hair La Vie Clinical Formula Journey Box is the perfect companion to your cut.
