12 New Hairstyles for Summer

Warning: there are some truly awesome hairstyles ahead. If you’re not careful, you will fall into the trap of wanting to try all of them at once … and that might result in one of these celebrity hairstyle disasters. Yikes.

If you can control yourself, the upside is you won’t have a shortage of new hairstyles this summer — exciting, right? All of these hairstyles are perfect for warm weather, and there’s really no better time to try something new than summertime. It’s gorgeous outside, and you deserve to look as pretty as possible while you enjoy your freedom for the next three months.

And the cool thing about these hairstyles is that we didn’t just pull them out of our a–, uh, I mean, make them up on our own. We actually asked celebrity hairstylists Kevin Ryan, Jeffrey Martinez and Kara Silverman to re-create celebrity looks and provide their tips on how to get each of this summer’s hottest hairstyle trends.
