35 Model-Approved Hairstyle Ideas to Copy This Summer

StyleCaster | Ruby Buddemeyer

After purchasing the most efficient, top-notch sunscreens we could get our hands on and buying sweat-proof, makeup-setting sprays in bulk, we were finally, finally starting to look forward to summer. And then we remembered the frizzy, sweaty, disgusting mess that was our hair last summer, and our warm-weather anxiety came back in full force. But because we can’t exactly skip summer this year, we’ve decided to look at the masters of perpetually tousled bedhead hair for a quick lesson in hair inspo: models.

Sure, models are just like us, and blah, blah, blah, but for whatever reason, their hair somehow always looks awesome. So after getting lost in the Instagram abyss, we found you the prettiest cuts, colors, and styles to experiment with this summer, like loose, bouncy waves, à la Stella Maxwell, and a wet, crimped bob, like Sofia Richie’s. And the best part is that these looks are so incredibly easy to recreate, even your lazy ass will manage to do them on the most hot and humid mornings. See the pics ahead, and good luck deciding on which looks to try first.
