Whether it’s a flirty new chop or an inventive updo, don’t you always look to your favorite celebs to try it first? 

Here, A-list ladies showing us how summer hair is done.

THE PIXIE CUT

See the slightly rumpled texture of Jennifer Hudson’s ’do? That’s the new way to wear super-short hair--nothing too perfect.

THE LOB

Two things: First, Game of Thrones’ Khaleesi (Emilia Clarke) is a brunette IRL. Second, she just sprung for a shoulder-skimming long bob that’s making us all a bit jealous.

THE BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS

If color--not a cut--is more your speed, give balayage highlights a go, like Resident Advisors’ Jamie Chung wears here. Being dubbed “the new ombré,” the process uses a much more natural-looking painted technique.

THE PINK DYE JOB

Or go entirely un-natural (and super fun). If anyone questions it, just say Kaley Cuoco and Kelly Ripa talked you into it.

THE HEIDI BRAID

Alright, now to the styles you can whip up with your existing strands. Take this photo from a recent Valentino runway show to your stylist (but secretly watch and learn so you can re-create it over and over again).

THE THIN BRAID

This Beyoncé-approved style is all about making a simple plait look elegant. Rather than last year’s messy fishtail, you’ll want to start with a slick, high ponytail and braid super-tight all the way down.

THE HALF BUN

Without a doubt this year’s trendiest look, the half bun (like here on Julianne Hough) reinvents that whole half-up-half-down look we all had on the back burner.

THE HIGH BUN

Then again, you could just pile everything on top like model du jour Tess Holliday.
