Celeb-Approved Summer Hairstyles 2021
1. Long Layers with Sheer Bangs
For anyone who doesn't want to chop some major length off, take some weight off your locks with some long layers instead. Bangs are definitely on-trend for the season, too, but to make it a little more weather-friendly, opt for the see-through kind. We've spotted this combo on Bela Padilla and Andrea Brillantes, and their photos speak for themselves.
2. Boyfriend Bob
The great thing about a bob is you can just let it do its own thing for a few months. And if that sounds good to you, a blunt, jaw-length boyfriend bob is your best bet this summer. In case you need some inspo, Leila Alcasid and Sarah Lahbati's fresh cuts have you covered.
3. Warm Ash Beige
Colors in the light brown spectrum are foolproof for giving your tresses a low-key lift. Our pick for the season? A warm ash beige (take your cue from Jessy Mendiola below) for a soft balance of gold and gray that looks amazing under natural light.
4. Chestnut Brown Highlights
But for those who aren't ready to commit to a full head of dye, highlights are the way to go. Shades like chestnut brown, mahogany, or golden ash look gorgeous against a dark base and on any skin tone! Don't believe us? Gabbi Garcia's latest 'do is proof!
5. Ash Blonde
You can't really go wrong with ash dye job regardless of the season. A dark ash balayage like Maggie Wilson's will save you from frequent touch-ups, but Sue Ramirez's take on a light ash blonde is definitely worth a shot if you want a full-on transformation.
Blondes will be having more fun this summer, so you don't want to miss out. Janella Salvador and Kyline Alcantara are already one step ahead, flaunting their caramel and honey blonde locks on the 'gram. (Want more blonde color options? Click here!)
7. Split Hair Color
Mover over, chunky highlights. Hidden and half-and-half hair colors are the experimental dye job of choice for the season. The beauty of this technique is there's a ton of ways to wear it, but you can't go wrong with something like Mimiyuuuh's half-pink locks.
