Thankfully, if you have the right hairstyle ideas/tips in your back pocket, you can enjoy the season without the bad hair days. And that’s what we’ll help with in this article. Keep reading for the top 2024 summer hairstyles for long hair.

Middle Part Chignon

Do you work in an office? It doesn’t matter. Whether you’re a corporate girlie or not, the middle part chignon could just be your go-to summer style. It’s a classic that never loses its appeal, and it’ll keep your long tresses off your shoulders. We love it for its relaxed-yet-put-together aesthetic that goes with literally every wardrobe or style profile.

Part your hair down the middle from your hairline to the top of your head, then gather your hair to the back and secure it into a chignon. Pull a few wispy strands out of the bun for some personality. 

A Big Curly Wash N’ Go

You might want to keep your long curls pulled back to stay cool, but sometimes, the situation calls for a style that’s a full-blown mood. And the wash n’ go is it! It sets your long curls free and puts them on blast for a stare-inducing impact.

Since the style is all about volume and might make you a little hot, reserve this style for cooler summer days.

To get the look, wash and condition your hair as normal, add your leave-in and curl-enhancer, and air dry or diffuse. Then, grab a pick and lift your roots to volumize. That’s it—you’re good to go!

Jasmine Braid

The Jasmine Braid, also known as the “bubble braid”, is a prime summertime pick. It’s equal parts cute and sexy, and the longer your hair is, the better it looks! Plus, you can dress it up or down as you please.

Here’s how to create this style at home:

  • Pull all your hair into a ponytail and secure it with a rubber band. Make the ponytail as high or low as you want, but make sure your roots are smooth.

  • Starting about two inches from the base of the ponytail, wrap small rubberbands at even intervals down the length of your ponytail. This will create the bubbles. Pull at the sides of each new section (or bubble) to add volume.

  • After you get to the end, closely examine the bubble braid and do any final zhuzhing to perfect it.

Carefree Messy Updo

If you’re looking for a chic look that’ll give you all the confidence, go with a carefree, messy updo, AKA the messy bun. The fun thing about the messy bun is that you have the creative freedom to make it as messy or un-messy as you want. Pull your hair into a ponytail before forming your bun for a structured yet messy look. If you’re going full-on messy, skip the ponytail and use pins to secure the bun.

So, there you have it - 4 awesome 2024 summer styles for long hair. We hope you found the inspiration you were looking for. We’d be remiss if we didn’t remind you how important it is to keep your mane healthy when summer rolls around. You can do so with Daily Dose Leave-in Conditioner and Deep Conditioner. If you haven’t tried them out yet, we urge you to do so. We wish you the best with your hair!
