Change up your look this season by trying a new summer hairstyle. If you don’t know where to start, we have plenty of inspiration for you. Keep reading to find out the best summer hairstyles for men and women.
Top Summer 2018 Hairstyles for Women
Summer’s best hairstyles for women are all about keeping things simple and looking effortlessly cool. Put down the hot tools and embrace your natural texture with these on-trend looks. These are the best women’s hairstyle trends of 2018:
Bangs are one of the biggest hairstyle trends of 2018. While there’s a ton of variations of the classic fringe, curtain bangs are great because they work for every hair type and texture – even curly hair!
Curtain bangs are more versatile than their blunt cousins, since they can be worn to the side, parted down the middle, or pinned out of the way. Plus, they make even a simple ponytail look fun and fresh. Ask your hairstylist for long, textured bangs.
Long bobs have been trending for a few years, so we’re excited to see a return of shorter-length bobs. Jaw-length bobs are a great summer hairstyle for women because they’re easy to style, keep long hair off your neck, and look très chic.
Texture is the name of the game here, so you’ll want to apply a body-boosting treatment like Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir to wet hair before air drying.
If you love to pull up your hair in the summer, this is a great trend for you! High-drama hair accessories are a great way to play with your look without committing to a new hairstyle. Try an updo secured with a pearl barrette, or a ponytail tied with a velvet bow.
Scrunchies are also back in a big way. We love scrunchies because they put less strain on hair than traditional hair ties, so they’re perfect if you’re trying to prevent breakage while growing out your hair.
Top Summer 2018 Hairstyles for Men
Whether you like to live on the edge and play with hair color, or prefer a more low-maintenance look, we have a summer hair trend for you. These are the best men’s hairstyle trends of summer 2018:
The Buzz Cut
This summer hair trend couldn’t be easier! A buzz cut puts the emphasis on your clothes and face. And it has the added benefit of keeping you cool on hot summer days. Plus, this look is great for camouflaging thinning hair. Just be sure to wear sunscreen or a hat if you plan to be out in the sun!
Bonus points if you bleach your hair and try a fun color for the season. Silver and lavender are both big this year. Just be sure you don’t overdo it on the bleach to avoid hair damage.
The Man Bob
Bobs are just as big for men as they are for women this summer! Take a break from your barber and let your hair grow out. This look feels fresh after years of uber-groomed barber cuts. We’re seeing these layered, center-parted, mid-length cuts everywhere.
Need a little help in the hair growth department? Viviscal Man is loaded with nutrients that support healthy hair growth to help you grow out your mane this season.*
The Modern Caesar
Bangs are back for men as well. George Clooney made the Caesar famous in the 90’s, but 2018’s update is worn messier with a short beard.
To get the look, ask your barber for a short crop with bangs. Or just ask for the Caesar! They’ll know exactly what you’re talking about.
