In this warm weather, you don’t want your hair all over your face. And the ponytail look becomes too boring to try out every day. Cheer up! With the following beauty tips, you can spice up your summer days with innovative and cool hairstyles.

A perfect and easy summer hairstyle that is also currently in vogue as it is being sported by international celebrities is the side braid. Comb your hair to one side and braid it long over your shoulder. You can secure the ends with a hair tie or leave them loose. Women with shorter hair can try the same style with a side ponytail.

Another one to try is the bandana look. All you need to do is tie your hair in a bun and knot it high up. Wear your choice of a preppy bright bandana, or a large hairband. Another variant of this style is the turban look. You can buy a readymade turban from a hair accessories store or make one out of a scarf. Tie your hair in a bun and knot your turban either at the back of your head or at the front. The turban style is great to protect your hair from sun damage, and is a glamorous option for a bad hair day.

The tuck and roll style is a take on the everyday hair bun. For this, you need a strong, stretched hairband. Wear it like a tiara around your head. Now tuck your loose hair into the headband as though you are looping it inside. Begin from the hair around one of your ears and slowly move to the other ear.

With these styles, you can glam up your summer days with ease.
