The 9 Coolest Celebrity Hairstyles to Try This Summer

StyleCaster | Marisa Petrarca

Summer calls for a hair change, which, of course, calls for an obligatory Instagram pic. And if you’ve looked at your social media feed at least once in the last week, you already know that celebrities have gotten the memo. Sure, they’ve been blowing up our Instagram feeds with their short-hair transformations, like Kim Kardashian’s sleek, center-parted lob or Zoë Kravitz’s textured pixie cut, but they’ve also given us a zillion pretty, low-maintenance hairstyle ideas, like fishtail braids, beachy waves, and messy lobs, that we’re really, really digging.

And thanks to them, we’re feeling surprisingly inspired to ditch our normal sweaty topknots and actually – dare we say it – try to do something with our hair this summer. So whether it’s Shay Mitchell’s signature beachy waves or Lea Michelle’s messy fishtail ponytail that gets you inspired, we rounded up the nine best, prettiest celebrity hairstyles to try ASAP, before you get stuck in yet another summer hair rut. Scroll through to see our favorites, then get ready to take all of the selfies.
