Whether you’ve been growing out your hair for ages in an effort to achieve mermaid-like waves, or you’ve been slowly working your way up to a super short chop, let these trendy celebrities be your next hairstyle inspiration.
We can’t get enough of Taylor Swift’s choppy lob or the shiny, long locks of Pantene‘s new Celebrity Ambassador Selena Gomez. Styled for a high-fashion shoot or stepping out for a casual lunch, these girls’ hair always looks camera-ready, which is exactly why we’re studying up on their cuts. Check out our gallery for all of the best celebrity hairstyles for summer before you book your next salon appointment.
If you want to make the chop for summer (or go a little shorter with your lob), the hair-inspo is endless. Everyone from Demi Lovato to Emma Stone has been rocking some kind of bob or lob hairstyle. If your hair is on the longer side, take baby steps and start off with a longer lob style like Emma’s one-length look or Taylor’s layered cut with bangs.
If you really want to make a bold hair statement, copy Kate Mara’s new pixie cut. Just be mindful of your hair type, as anyone with coarse, curly hair may have a hard time styling a bob or pixie cut. Redken Styling and Grooming Expert Jenny Balding says it’s also important to remember that “With short cuts, you need to create attitude, whether it’s rock-and-roll or romantic. By choosing the right styling products, you can create definition, shine or volume to achieve the specific look you’re going for.” For a sleek pixie like Kate’s or a texturized rock ‘n roll look, Jenny likes Redken Short Sculpt 19 Touchable Texturizing Gel for its styling versatility.
10 Celebrity Hairstyles To Copy For Summer 2015
If you’ve successfully grown your hair to shoulder-length or longer, consider whether you want to leave it all one length a la model Gigi Hadid or add soft layers like Kendall Jenner. For a more statement-making look, copy Selena’s blunt cut or Lea Michele’s choppy bangs and tons of face-framing layers. Matrix Celebrity Stylist Nick Stenson says, “This is a classic look that never fades. Just make sure you want the commitment that comes with fringe,” he says of taking the time to style your bangs and using a cream like Matrix Style Link Smooth Setter to tame them.
Which haircut is your favorite look, HollywoodLifers? Will you be taking a cue from any of these celebrity styles this summer?
