ummers almost always bring brand-new haircut trends for you to get excited about. If you’ve been waiting for the change of seasons to get a fresh ‘do and (dread those hour-long styling sessions) then it is about time to get a mane makeover. The best part is that this season, hair trends are all about easy-to-style haircuts. To be honest, we are absolutely rooting for such roll-out-of-bed-and-go hair styles.

The sky is the limit when it comes to hair trends, but one thing that we know for sure is how nearly everyone adores a fresh haircut. With layered haircuts that cut down on styling time to the revival of ‘90s styles, the top looks can be defined as simple and easy to achieve.

If you are feeling scissor-happy, we have you covered. Curious to see which haircuts will be the rage this summer? Read on...

’90s bob

Effortlessly cool and easy ’90s style has seeped into the fashion industry and it’s taking over hair trends as well. Just like last year, this summer the ‘90s feel with more lived-in looks is all the rage. There are different variations of bobs that are trending, but the jawline-grazer is surely reminiscent of the ultimate ‘90s hair trend. Also referred to as a box or square bob it means that the hair should be the same length all the way round. According to celebrity hairstylists, this striking haircut can be worn in an ultra-sleek or naturally undone manner.

Curtain bangs

Seems like curtain bangs will continue to reign supreme this season as well. They’re super versatile as well as require low-maintenance. Thanks to the long sides and wispy ends, this haircut will beautifully frame your face. They’re long enough to grow out or pin back if you want, but they can also be cut into a shorter look. Another reason why curtain bangs are so popular is because they work with all sorts of hair textures. No matter what your hair type is, the key is getting the shape right and keeping those edges longer than the middle.

Baby-soft layers

Love your hair length and don’t feel like cutting them all the way? Hair experts suggest that you can add movement to your hair without losing length by going for baby-soft layers. In fact, it is a great way to spice up your long hair and give it some shape. Whatever the length, baby-soft, long layers will give direction to your hair so it sweeps and swirls exactly the way you like. They’re an easy yet chic way to lighten up heavy hair, flowing seamlessly alongside the contour of your face.

Modern shag

Shag haircuts are still in vogue, so if you are looking for an effortless look you can go for a modern shag cut. This cut can be worn seamlessly straight or extremely messy - it all depends on your hair texture. However, it is important to use a product that enhances your natural texture so that you can either let it air dry or blow dry it. What is great is that it works with every hair length. For those who have curly or wavy hair, the shag cut is a perfect choice as it creates a soft shape. This cut is versatile and looks terrific with just about any hair texture.
