• There are only so many times we can put our hair in a top knot before we get bored, which is why we're always on the hunt for easy summer hairstyles. Don't let these gorgeous hair ideas fool you—they are super easy to recreate. 

    Half-Up Hairstyle
    To get this Brigitte Bardot-inspired look, you need two things: beachy waves and plenty of volume. To get the latter, just use a teasing comb before pulling hair back. And if you have side-swept bangs like Candice Swanepoel, jus leave them out.

  • Center-Part Ponytail
    This low ponytail is a great option for those with shorter hairstyles, like Sophia Bush. Part hair down the center, then gather your ponytail at the nape of your neck. Apply a small amount of hairspray to keep flyaways at bay.

  • Side Braid
    Katie Lowe's braid may look complicated, but it's actual pretty simple. Pull all of your hair to the side, then create a braid. Once you've secured it, pull small pieces out to get it a messy texture.

  • Side Chignon
    Pull your hair to the side and create a loose, low bun, then pull out face-framing pieces. It can be a casual everyday style or something you pull out for nicer events, like Kate Beckinsale did.

  • 3-Step Pony

  • ...but from the side, you can see how it's a fun twist on the traditional style. To copy America Ferrera's look, tease hair at the crown of the head, make a half-up ponytail, then gather hair again at the nape of the neck into another ponytail.

  • Small Braid
    To get Jennifer Morrison's small braid, create a deep side part, then make a small French braid at the front of your head. Not only is it pretty, but it will help keep hair out of your face on hot days.

  • Beachy Texture
    For carefree texture like Kristen Bell's, dampen hair with a sea salt spray, put hair into three braids while you sleep, then take them out in the morning.
