Growing tired of your go-to hairstyles? With summer around the corner, it’s time to try something new with your locks. Take a peek at three fun and flirty styles we’re loving at the moment.
Hair too dirty to rescue with dry shampoo? Opt for some cool-girl boxer braids. They instantly hide greasy, stuck-to-your-forehead strands, and actually hold better on Day 2 (or even Day 3) hair. To create the trendy style, split hair into two sections, then grab a small section around your forehead and Dutch braid (or inverse French braid) the strands. Repeat on the other side, then use a tiny bit of styling putty to smooth down any flyaways.

Romantic Half Updo
The Ariana Grande ponytails of last year have been replaced by softer, more romantic-looking half updos. To achieve the effortless, boho look, apply a sea salt spray to strands, then scrunch the ends of your hair to activate your natural texture. Tease roots if desired, then loosely pull back two sections from the front of your head and tie them in a loose braid or bun at the back of your head. Use a hair elastic or bobby pins to secure the style, then finish with hairspray.
Braided Double Buns
Think of this look as the more playful version of your tried-and-true messy bun. To achieve the look, apply dry shampoo or a volume-boosting powder to your roots before styling to add extra grit and texture. Then, divide hair into two sections and French or Dutch braid two small sections of hair. Pull the rest of your hair up into two messy buns on the top of your head. Use bobby pins to secure any flyaways, and finish with hairspray if desired.
