For summer, you need hairstyles that can withstand hot and humid weather — and it's time to crank up the heat with these looks. You'll be wanting to make a chop after seeing these pretty cuts.


Natural Afro

Curly hair naturally wants to be voluminous, and 2020 is all about embracing and enhancing that.Natural curls and coils are taking the world by storm and the shape of the hair is what helps make the best impact.The rounded afro is one of the most popular looks.It's cutting or trimming hair to shape the natural curls into the roundest form possible.


Wavy Bob

A wavy bob is one of the most versatile hairstyles you can get.


The New Pixie

There's a reason the pixie is named a summer haircut trend every year: who doesn't want to deal with less hair in the heat? It might seem like going shorter would leave you less styling options, but it's actually the opposite. Take Zoë Kravitz's signature cut for example. Her choppy layers look cool tousled or super slicked back.

Or you may want to take it to another level -  a sexy curly pixie cut! An all-time trend that first blew up in the '60s, this universally flattering curly short hairstyle that we love for its volume, definition, and high fashion appeal.


'70s Bangs

Instead of doing a full-on bang, we opted for more of a curtain bang that sweeps to both sides. The vibe is very '70s and a perfect way to switch up her look. With bangs parted in the middle and cut to curve the cheekbones, it’s soft and effortless. We love how the bangs are long and just graze the tops of her eyelashes, while her face-framing layers accentuate the style.


Layers All The Way

No cut defined the late ‘90s and early ’00s like "The Rachel," - the nostalgia is real.This cut looks best when it's blown-out to perfection. Sienna Miller channeled "The Rachel," proving it's still one of the most infamous haircuts of all time.

Choppy Shag

A shag is the perfect complement for an oval shape face because of its softness. With lots lots of short layers around the face and sides—along with a longer back—the diffused layers throughout this style gets rid of extra weight and creates an airy effect all over. This shag cut is just enough to spruce up any long or mid-length cut for summer.



One Length

The most obvious version of this is a bob — but you do not have to chop off a ton of hair to get the blunt effect. The 2020 trend is all about structure.It's perfect for the girls who want to leave their hair long without the fuss of layers.Work with your current length, adding subtle long layers to your existing cut will take out some of the weight that's making your hair look bulky and boring. Kim Kardashian is the queen of the one-length style, whether it's long as it is here or snipped into a short bob.


Mid-Length Lob

If you're looking for a cut that's not too long, but definitely not short, consider a mid-length lob. Dusting a few inches off the ends of long hair revives hair, because you're getting rid of all of those raggedy split ends.A shoulder-length razored lob can make even the thickest, waviest hair look neat and easily managed. Part it the way you like and get a perfect face-framing style. If you have naturally curly hair, you might want to blowdry it straight to achieve some extra length. Highlight your auburn hair with glints of copper and bronze to make the color even more gorgeous.


Chin Length Bob

If you need a little kick in the rear, this layerless stunner should convince you to make the chop. Beauty lovers around the globe have their eyes on French girl hair, and we can understand why! Parisian-inspired hair is as low-maintenance and effortless as any hair trend can be. If you’re looking for a chin-length hairstyle with a French-girl twist, ask your stylist for a classic French bob with choppy layers and full bangs.


Asymmetrical Bob

This might just be the cut of the year. An asymmetrical bob seems to transcend texture and face shape every time. The asymmetry is cool enough to revamp a classic hairstyle, the bob; and definitely hip enough to make you feel totally fresh for summer.



Face Framing Curls

When in doubt, ask for face-framing layers. It's the fast track to your most flattering cut ever, especially when rocking ringlets.


Tight Crop

While the Big Chop is hardly a “trend,” 2020 has been a particularly big year for women transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. Start fresh with a cropped cut—or even a buzz cut—so your curls grow in with all their natural glory.Women may take the opportunity to embrace their natural texture more than ever now since they don’t have as much access to the salons as they previously did. A short, cropped cut like Lupita Nyong’o’s is a beautiful way to embrace your texture.


Baby Bangs

Must for 2020. This short statement fringe typically follows the hairline temple to temple, to create a dramatic, short, open feel.These work great for petite features to open up your face.


Polished Bob

The polished trend comes at all lengths—like this longer bob.To get the look ask for a blunt, heavy line, with no texture, and trade in your matte texturizers for shine sprays. In other words, more blunt, thick lines in haircuts instead of shattered, piecey texture.



Invisible Layers

Invisible layers are the secret for adding that whole cool-without-trying thing to your haircut in a totally modern way, no harsh layers in sight. The most modern variation of layering is a slight angle around your face, usually starting around your chin and working its way down to the length. Blending the layers is very important—they have to be cut properly to look seamless.
