You can perfect any fashion trend in the book, but trendy hair always completes the look. There are several simple in dos that will add a hint of girly, flirty, fun or sophistication to your look this summer.
Due to fashion trends of 2008, shorter haircuts are now growing out. Trends are now going even shorter. The pixie cut is the way to go if you are a stick-out-of the-crowd kind of girl. Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes are famous for this cut, but I just
L-O-V-E Elisha Cuthbert’s.
If you aren’t as daring, or are letting your hair grow out from your last hair excursion, do not fear, the bob is here. The cut sits at the nape of the neck, and is perfect for the hot summer days and is an easy to style cut, especially since messy out-of-bed-short-hair is in. Longhaired girl and afraid of the scissors? You can still enjoy this trend! Grab bobby pins that match your hair and pin it up and under to the nape of the neck.

Not looking for a cut, but still want to try something new? Braids are possibly the quickest way to do so. Starting above one eyebrow, French braid towards the other side of your head and bobby pin behind the ear and under some hair. This brings an instant innocence, yet glamour, to any look. As seen below on Lauren Conrad.
Also, new braided hairpieces help those with shorter hair or the inability to braid (its ok, some people just can’t seem to get it down!) Finding one that matched your hair perfectly may be hard, but once you do, just slip it in and go! We love that this style can be worn casual or dressed up. Sienna Miller pulls off this look beautifully.
Mermaid and beachy waves are an obvious summer do. Perfect again for any occasion, these waves are sexy and sophisticated. When you aren’t at the beach, but want to catch these waves, take 1-2 inch pieces of hair and wrap them around hot curlers, pin them and let ‘em cool. Take them out and pull a large-tooth comb through your hair. You’ll end up with big soft waves. Use a soft hairspray for hold.
