8 Ways to Style Summer's ‘It’ Haircut
Sleek And Straight
The most classic way to style the bob: pin straight and center parted. Invest in a good flatiron and some humidity protectant for the sleekest strands possible.

Beachy waves aren’t just for the long-haired ladies. This look is super easy to pull off: just curl thick sections away from your face and finish with a sea salt spray.
Product Pick: Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($27)
Instead of gathering everything from your ears up, just grab the hair from your temples back and secure it at the crown for a more sophisticated look.
A blunt bob is great on its own, but take it to mod territory by cutting bangs that fall right below your eyebrows. Instantly cool.
We’re not talking '80s crimps, but bigger, looser waves. Center part it for an equal amount of volume on either side and finish with a texturizing spray.
Product Pick: moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray ($25)
Not quite slicked back, this more voluminous approach keeps strands out of your face. Tease it at the roots, lightly brush it back and set with hairspray or pomade.

Center Braided Ponytail
This low pony-mohawk hybrid is edgy, chic and perfect for hot summer days. Braid a two-inch section in the middle of your head, then gather everything at the nape of your neck.
Behind The Ears
The easiest way to keep hair from blowing into your face: slick it down and swoop behind your ears.
