Summer Hair

I'm trying to grow my hair out and its very frustrating at times. Right now its just stuck, like it has not moved in over two months...at least that's the what it feels to me.

Anywho- I have been searching for fun, easy and quick ways to do my hair in the morning to get it out of my face and also look cute and summery. I've never been great with doing my own hair so I was very excited when all these casual styles were showing up on the celebrities.

I cant quite do a french braid like Jen has here- I just do a simple braid- takes about 3 min and off I go.


A version of the braid is just an easy twist- total time, about 1 min


I have not tried this yet, but I like all the little braids


This one is my favorite but my hair is just not long enough yet- hopefully it gets there soon, I'm loving this chic summer hair.


So, what is your favorite summer hairstyle that does not require lots of fussing?

I've been trying to J.Anniston version...Hubster digs it ;) That updo, though is simply gorgeous!

I wish I could say something stylish like sweet braids or beachy waves, but my go-to summer (and winter and spring and fall) style is either a ponytail or a bun! i have pretty long hair but almost never wear it down--it gets in the way and is very very straight so it just hangs.

But oh to have waves like Jen!

I love Jens..always have, always will! Mine used to be her color for my wedding last year...but since we traveled for so long I had to stop coloring, and recently I had it chopped off to a, gasp, BOB! Ek! I get a lot of compliments on it, but it's frustrating, I am a pony tail girl when I'm running around, and my pony is about an inch long these days!!! Good luck!! I heard eating Quinoa helps with hair growth, all that protein! Luckily mine grows at a freakishly fast rate! :)

I don't have a favorite hairstyle for the summer, I have a favorite product that's great. It's called "surf spray" by bumble and bumble.

I've been wearing my hair like Jen Aniston in the first picture all summer! It's perfect for keeping your bangs out of your face without having to use bobby pins or a headband - and it's adorable! Great pics :)

During the summer. I try to let my hair air dry and while I would love to say it ends up looking Jen's that would a lie. My hair frizzes very quickly. So most times I just end up blowing it out with a round brush.

Headed on vacation next week and this might be my staple hairstyle every day!

Love Jen's hair... Mine ends up in a ponytail just about every day. Summer and winter. Sometimes I wear it in a low bun like the last photo- but mine doesn't look near as pretty!
