Here at Hair.com, there’s nothing we love more than an easy hairstyle. During the summer months, the urge to spend all your time soaking up the sun instead of styling your hair becomes even stronger.

If you’re looking to boost your on-the-go styling skills before your next getaway, we’ve got you covered. Below, we’ve gathered our absolute favorite easy summer hairstyles you can create with five items or less.

Beachy Texture

A few days spent on the beach may be all it takes to get naturally gorgeous textured waves. If you need some extra help perfecting your lived-in beach hair, use a few spritzes of the L'Oréal Professionnel Techni.Art Wild Stylers Beach Waves spray on damp hair. Once the hair is dry, complete the look with a finishing spray such as the Techni.Art Wild Stylers Next Day Hair.

Half Up Bun

Begin by separating a section of hair at the crown of your head (leaving the strands framing your face loose) and create a basic ponytail. Secure the ponytail with a clear elastic and pin the hair from the ponytail around the elastic to create a bun. Hold the style in place and tame flyaways with a light spritz of hairspray.

Accent Side Braid

Start by parting your hair to the side. Using a curling iron, wrap thick sections of hair around the barrel to form loose waves.Take a small section of hair from the crown of your head and style a simple headband braid. Once you’ve reached the end of the section, pin it to the back of your head using a bobby pin. For the final step, spray on a small amount of medium hold hairspray.

Spiked Pixie

Looking to shake up your short cut on your next trip? Starting with damp hair, apply a hair paste like the Redken Shape Factor 22 Sculpting Cream Paste and sculpt to achieve the perfect textured pixie.

Textured Ponytail

A textured ponytail is the ultimate no effort hairstyle. To master this look, start by applying the Kérastase V.I.P Volume In Powder Spray to dry hair to instantly provide body, volume, and grip. Lightly scrunch hair to create texture. Gather your strands into a high ponytail, leaving volume at the root. Secure the ponytail with a hair tie and complete the look with a light spritz of hairspray.

Curly Messy Bun

Curly girls, we know the struggle of trying to tame your mane into any type of updo. Luckily, we have a few tips and tricks up our sleeve to create the perfect vacation-worthy messy bun.

Start by distributing an even amount of Mizani’s True Textures Twist And Coil Jelly through damp hair. This formula is ideal for enhancing natural curls and styling coils and curls without frizz. Once hair is dry, gather it into a high, tight ponytail. Split the hair in the ponytail into two even sections. Take one section and wrap it around the base of the hair tie. Use bobby pins to hold the section in place, then wrap the remaining section around the first section repeat the same steps. For an extra messy finish, lightly tug on the top of the bun to loosen it up a bit.

If you’re looking for a touch of glam, swap out your regular hair tie for a ponytail cuff.

Half Up Rope Braid Twist

Begin by brushing through your hair to remove any snarls and part your hair down the middle. Take a small section of hair from each side. Starting with either side, create a rope braid going toward the back of your head and pin it in place using a bobby pin. Repeat this step on the opposite side and pin the second braid on top of the first. Complete the look with a splash of light hold hairspray.
