6 Summer Hairstyles We Can’t Wait to Try
We’ve rounded up some hairstyles we can’t wait to try out over the next few months:
Summer Hairstyles Trend #1: Blunt Bobs
Bobs are a great option for warmer months and many bob styles have been updated by adding sharper angles and textures. This style works great with these models wavy hair texture and the added blunt edge adds a more up-to-date element.

When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
