5 Natural Summer Hairstyles Perfect for You

The heat is finally upon us… and our hair! Summer is the season where everyone is looking for fun and unique trends to style their hair. However, this can be a painstakingly long process because even when you have found a style you want to try, the humidity and frizz won’t always cooperate.

But that all changes with this blog – we have composed a list of 5 Natural Summer Hairstyles Perfect for You. We have pulled together various hairstyle options regardless of whether your hair is short, medium, or long!

Before you begin: Prepare Your Hair

To get the best possible look for each style, it will depend on whether your hair is freshly washed or a few days old. Some techniques are easier if your hair has been cleaned on the day, whereas others will hold form much better if they are day-old hair.

If you opt for a fresher style that requires freshly washed hair, make sure you use natural, sulfate-free, silicon-free, and paraben-free solutions like the Iles Formula Shampoo and Conditioner. These products contain ingredients that instantly detangle knots and provide a voluptuous effect on the hair. They will deliver sumptuous, lustrous hair textures with natural volume and never weigh any hair type down.

Iles Formula Conditioner

If you have especially coarse hair, hairstyles can be more challenging to re-create as the dried-out strands are more prone to frizz. To conquer this, we recommend using the Iles Formula Hair Mask that instantly strengthens and nourishes hair with its cocktail of high-quality ingredients such as Australian nut oils, vitamin E, and Tucuma butter. As it’s vitamin-infused place it on the scalp too. Scalp health is as important as hair health, especially in the summer months.

1. Classic High Pony



A ponytail is one of the most well-known and quickest styles in the book. No matter the hair’s thickness a classic ponytail always looks good. But sometimes, the most straightforward look is the hardest to do if you are not using the right products.

A tip to ensure your hair doesn’t look flat on the front part of the pony is by blow-drying all roots in the opposite direction. Then apply the Iles Formula Finishing Serum on the mid-length and ends. If you decide to style your hair naturally without applying any heat, this product still works wonders! This serum will prevent your hair from being weighed down, in contrast to typical hairsprays and wax gels that can create buildup, which will clog hair follicles. The Iles serum works seamlessly with all hair types so you have the guarantee that any style you choose, is possible. The beauty of this serum is not just the exceptional luster its all the protection it delivers against heated tools + UV Color fade +humditity

2.  Keep It Braided

There are plenty of braid variations to try, so why not give it a go this summer? This style is bound to keep your hair nicely tucked, and it always looks classy.

For ladies with shorter haircuts, we recommended going for a box and micro braid, as they will be easier to tie up, and you won’t have to care about loose strands coming out. To explore different types of braids, you can find more inspirational pictures like the ones below on our Iles Formula Pinterest Board or, otherwise, perfect your braiding skills by watching the hundreds of available tutorials on YouTube!

3. Beachy Waves on all lengths

You don’t have to wait for a trip to the beach to get that sun-kissed, free-flowing wave. This is a very natural and quick style even when you have extremely straight hair.

For any hair with natural movement best to prepare the curl by wrapping it in the Iles Formula Turban and then release and spray with  Iles Curl Revive. Don’t touch until hair is dry.

Our secret key tip for straight hair is to apply the Iles Formula Curl Revive right after your wash, leave it to air-dry slightly, and plait it into a loose braid. Leave your braid for a few hours or, even better, overnight to create soft, heatless waves. This trick also works for women with short hair too – you can make smaller braids, which will give you those effortless curls.
