8 Hairstyles French Girls Will Be Wearing On Rotation This Summer

Summer may bring joy to our lives (in the form of vitamin D, lighter evenings, and warmer temperatures), but it also creates more obstacles when it comes to our beauty routines. For hair, in particular, heat and humidity can mean you need to switch up your go-to hair style (or even hair cut) for something that can withstand the effects of hot weather.

So, how exactly does one style their hair for summer in a way that is both practical and looks good? The trick, as always, is to look to French women for inspiration. Scroll down for eight achievable ways to style your hair this summer.

1. Micro Bob

Okay, you could style your hair in an up-do if you want to keep it off your shoulders during hot weather, but if you’ve already been considering ‘the chop’, now’s the time. A micro-bob is not only effortless to style but about as heatproof as a hairstyle can be.

2. Bun with Oversized Scrunchie

A bun is an obvious go-to for summer—keeping hair away from your face and reducing any potential for frizz and fluffiness to occur. Add an oversized scrunchie for a summer 2024 upgrade.

3. Twisted Undo

4. Low Pony with Baseball Cap

Baseball caps can hide all manner of haircare sins if hot weather means you’re likely to experience greasy roots or unwanted flyaways. Plus, they provide sun protection to both the scalp and the face. Win, win.

5. Layered Curls

If you simply want to try something new and freshen up your hair style for summer, but don’t want to go for a drastic cut—consider adding in some layers. If your hair is curly, they’ll totally transform the shape and add movement.
