Summer Hair for Brunettes

As a brunette, you may sometimes feel overshadowed by those who rock lighter hair colors. But there’s no reason to feel that way this summer because, with the right style, you’ll stand out in a huge way. In this article, we’ll reveal some of the best summer hairstyles for brunettes.

Fun Bob with Piecey Layers

If you’re feeling bored with your current style, consider upping the fun factor with a funky bob with piecey layers. The cut radiates personality and can be personalized to frame your face perfectly. In addition, the style is short, light, and airy, which will help to keep you cool in the summer.

For the hair DIYers out there, you may be tempted to try achieving this cut at home. And while we recommend leaving cuts like these to the professionals, you can certainly break out your hair shears and give it a try. We suggest you cut your hair off gradually and play around with the length of the bob and layers until you discover the perfect length for your face and personal preferences.

Asymmetrical Cut with Embellishments

For anyone who’s never tried an asymmetrical bob, the time to do it is now. It’s forever stylish and edgy – so much so that it can help to unlock confidence that you never knew you had. Take your typical asymmetrical bob to the next level with some face-framing curls and a middle or side part for added movement and dimension. The flower is optional but can be used to add some angelic flair to your overall look.

This style is a bit bulkier around the neckline than some bobs, but it will not make you feel hot in the summer. What’s more, is that it wears well; if the wind or water threatens to ruin your style as you enjoy summer outings, you won’t have to worry. A little more texture will make this style look even better.

Edgy Pixie

Are you more of a rebel than an angel? This blunt, side-swept pixie cut is exactly what you need. It’s got a boyish quality that fashion experts and everyday folks love.

This style is a hit for the summer because of its extremely short length. You won’t have any hair on your neck to make you feel hot while you’re out and about.

We strongly recommend that you consult a professional to achieve this look. It’s very easy to mess up this cut and end up with a different style entirely.

The Wet Look

We love a good wet look, and literally everyone else does too. And there’s no question why. The style slenderizes and frames the face, adds dimension to one-note color jobs, and can work for daytime and nighttime excursions.

We’ll just say it outright; this style is undeniably sexy. If that’s your jam, this is definitely the style for you. Whether you’re out at a pool party or enjoying the waves at the beach, your hair won’t be a concern. Frizz and messiness work well with this look. And the best part is that if you begin to overheat, you can throw these loose curls into a ponytail to get them out of the way.

We hope that this article has been helpful to you as you sort out which styles you want to try on your brunette hair this summer. No matter what hairstyle you try, don’t forget to have fun with it!
