The weather is hot and humid and you’re finding yourself throwing your hair up in the same top knot over and over again. Sure, that “look” is comfortable – but why not *spice up your life* and try something new?! Take a cue from the ~silver screen~, and try out these inspirational hairstyles for DA SUMMER (it’s not over yet!!).
Sofia Coppola’s rendition of Marie Antoinette is visually stunning, and this is the look that stands out the most (and can be replicated without looking freeeaky). An alternative to taking the plunge and actually dying your hair pink is using hair chalk! It works on most hair types and colours (even on black hair like mine), giving you a summer look in the style of Marie Antoinette AKA Kirsten Dunst herself.
Julia Roberts’ hair in this movie is amazing. If I didn’t have pin straight hair I would want voluptuous natural curls like hers – but alas, all I have are curling irons. This look is great for the summer because it looks very nonchalant and natural (better than a ponytail everyday)!
Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Penelope Cruz is a classic babe with the hair to prove it. Imagine yourself wearing this hairstyle, walking on the beach in Barcelona with your lover… looks good right?
The Great Gatsby
Maybe you’ve wanted to cut your hair short for a while or you already have a cropped do, Carey Mulligan’s hair in The Great Gatsby is the perfect inspiration for a summer style. This bob looks super chic on it’s own or you can dress it up with some cute hair accessories like embellished hair pins!
Elsa’s braid in the film is beautiful and can translate IRL for your summer hair. Let go of your top knot and put your hair into a messy, embellished, and long side braid.
