ATLANTA (June 27, 2018) — A season of fun in the sun is upon us and that means warm temps and lots of sunshine! From tropical vacations, fun festivals and poolside days it always seems to make our days a little brighter and our hair a little crazier. When the humidity kicks in the struggle are real no matter what kind of hair you have so why not get creative with styles to keep you and your hair cool. From ponytails to braids and buns, we’ve got insight on all the hottest summer hairstyles.

“The secret to re-creating the hottest styles for summer is actually pretty easy, it’s all about one key hair accessory and that’s ultra-seamless hair extensions like Barely Xtensions.  You want to add length and volume but keep it discreet, lightweight and natural,“ says Jennifer Hutchens, Brand and Product Development Director with Barely Xtensions.

Here are the hottest styles for summer that are fun and easy to do:

The Power Pony 

Celebrities like Ariana Grande, JLO, and Kim Kardashian never cease to amaze us with the power of a ponytail. This look is a modern spin on your basic ponytail pulling it super high on top of the head and wrapping a piece of hair around the base to conceal the hair tie. It’s chic, powerful and most of all super playful! Clip in extensions for extra lift, keep it sleek and smooth or give it tousled volume, either way, you will feel pretty and powerful.

The Bubble Pony

I want a boring ponytail – said no one ever! Bubble Ponies are playful and a creative revived twist on a standard ponytail that has been seen all over the runways of fashion week. It’s a style that is far from boring, yet simple to do, and oh so stylish for summer. You can even change it up by trading the poufy round sections for sections of poufy fishtail braids. For added length and volumetry clipping in extensions!

Space Buns

What’s better than one topknot? TWO! This Star Wars Princess Leia inspired style is here to stay all summer long! It has taken the festival season by storm and has been spotted on celebrities like Kendal Jenner and Mille Bobby Brown who are definitely influential when it comes to style. The cool thing is the look can be styled a variety of different ways, as two high buns on top of the head, as two low buns on the back of the head, or half up half down. Whichever way you decide to rock this style, it will be young and fun all summer long!

Boxer Braids

These braids are also known as the braids with a million names. They are a staple among the Kardashian sisters and often referred to as boxer braids, but also known as inverted French braids, Dutch braids, pigtail braids, cornrows —whatever you call them, they are in. It’s a versatile style from your childhood that can be a powerful hairstyle for any summer day, from a casual day out shopping at a festival or evening out on the town. Wear two, three or four, sleek and sculpted or full and romantic, either way, it’s a sure way to look hot, but stay cool this summer! For added length try clipping in extensions!


Faux Braids

Not a master braider? No worries! You can actually create a lot of stylish braids by using elastics to produce a series of small ponytails. This pull-through braid simulates the look of a braid with zero braiding skills required. It’s chic yet effortless and can be styled a variety of different ways — as a single braid, pigtail braid, French braid, crown braid, and the list goes on and on. No matter how you wear it, no one will ever know your secret! For ultimate volume simply add extensions!
