Short Hairstyles For Summer

Thornton Heath

Short Summer Crops

If you're looking for a fun new look that makes a statement, why not go for a sexy short crop this summer? This style is perfect for the warmer months and, dependant on the length, can be a versatile look for women. 

This style is perfect for women with relaxed hair who are looking to transition to their natural hair. Your Karen Wright stylist can leave height on the top of your head or even add fashionable fades for a fashionable, edgy look. The latest 007, Lashana Lynch, shows off her stunning features with her super short crop.

The Heartthrob Haircut

One of the most popular men's hair trends of the past few years has been adopted by fashion, and heat, conscious ladies for this summer. This 90s inspired heartthrob style is a choppy, layered bob that is cropped closer to the neck and longer towards the front. Taking the weight of your hair from your neck will help you to look and feel cool in the heat!

This style works well with most hair textures and the laid-back look means less styling time, you can wash, tousle and go!

Chic French Bobs

Give your style a little "je ne sais quoi" with a chic, French inspired bob this summer. Emma Watson has been spotted at Paris Fashion Week with her hair chopped into a super chic French girl bob, complete with lots of choppy layers for volume and texture. Her relaxed bob also has subtle curtain bangs which are blended into the layers, which give the 60s-inspired hairstyle a modern update.

Your Karen Wright stylist will create a cute bob that emulates the chic nonchalance that French women are renowned for, with tousled layers and waves lending themselves to this undone look.

The "Lob"

If you don't want to go too short this summer, why not ask your Karen Wright stylist for a relaxed collarbone grazing lob (long bob)? The face flattering length of this cut is perfect for all seasons and can be tied up to take weight off your neck in the warm weather.

The collarbone length bob hasn’t met a texture that it didn’t love, the length helps to maintain volume and thickness in fine, straight hair, and is long enough that natural curls won't puff out as they sometimes can with a traditional length bob. Speak to your Karen Wright stylist about how the long bob would work for you!
