If summer hair is defined by sun-streaked highlights, shine, and mermaid-y strands – the epitome of strength and health – then summer tresses can feel like the complete opposite: dull and drab. It’s hard to imagine anything else when the weather outside looks as draining as you feel. We got tips. The easiest solution is to swap out your regular shampoo and conditioner for ones formulated with super hydrating, deep-conditioning ingredients (shea butter, vitamin E, and argan oil are a few examples). Or, if anything, experts recommend shampooing less to encourage producing natural oils. Above all, the most prominent way to freshen up tired strands is to adopt one of the below buzziest cuts.

The Shag

A lot of people who have been wearing very simple styles are bored with their one-length bob. They’re looking for a change; they want more layers, something funky, something edgy – which is the shag. A shag has tons of short layers at the crown and sides, which creates a lot of volume.

But, to modernise the popular ‘90s style, it is advised to avoid blow-drying it unless you have straight hair. Instead, use curl creams for a cooler, more fierce look. The cool thing about shags with curly hair is that it gives a lot of volume–you can wake up and go!

Mid-length with a chance of soft layers

Most people cut their hair off during the summer. By winter, it’s usually grown into a mid-length long bob and at that point, you’ll want to add shape to it. Cutting soft layers into it will give it shape and some life, so it doesn’t look so blah. Keeping the ends blunt can feel heavy, make the ends softer and give the look face-framing layers to open it up.

Soft Blunt Bob

Similar to the softly layered mid-length style, a soft blunt bob takes out the heaviness from a super-sharp line, which can be achieved by cutting into it (when you snip vertically versus straight across). And it will grow out nice and not into a heavy, bulky haircut.

Natural hair with Subtle Highlights

Most people brighten their hair in the summer, so for winter, more natural hues become a trend-and it’s good to give your hair a bit of a break. But you can consider adding very subtle, toned – down highlights to give your look some dimension – just a little bit of something so that it has shape.
