We love summer and that awesome feeling it brings and wouldn’t mind having it all year long. But every season has its challenges, and for curly-haired girls, managing their wild hair during the hot months is a big one. Are you dreaming of pulling your curls out of the way while still showing them off and looking stylish and cute? Well, this is totally possible! Here are the 21 prettiest summer curly hairstyles that will make the heat more bearable!

1. Large Headband Hairstyle

Anytime I see a large headband, it puts a smile on my face because it reminds me of my childhood days when every girl wore this hair accessory. Yes, big headbands are back, and they will help you achieve the easiest summer style for your curly hair. Just put it on your forehead and let your curls effortlessly fall over it. It takes less than a minute to get this hairstyle that will make you feel young again!

2. Bubble Braids

I just love the bubble braid trend because it combines an ordinary braid and a ponytail into a much more fun hairstyle. All you need is a bunch of elastics to create two bubble braids from your long curly hair, and voilà, you have a cute summer style in no time!

3. High Messy Bun With A Headband

A cute headband and a high messy bun won’t give the impression that you tried too hard, but at the same time, you’ll still look so pretty and ready to endure even the hottest summer day with style and a smile on your face!

4. Low Ponytail With A Cute Scarf

Sure, there’s nothing wrong with a basic low ponytail, but sometimes it feels like something’s missing. Is there a way to make this simple style a bit more fun? Absolutely! Just see how a pretty scarf can transform this plain hairstyle into a far more stunning one. You’ll love this trick for those hot summer nights ahead.

5. Side-Part High Ponytail

For those occasions when you need a more dramatic, glamorous look with your curls, choose this side-part high ponytail. It looks elegant and bold, and it’s just too gorgeous not to try, especially if you’re in your long hair phase right now.

6. Slicked-Back Half Updo

When you’re not in the mood for having all your curls flying around your head, but also don’t want to completely tame them into a high updo, go with a slicked-back half updo. It’s always a cool and pretty option for your curly hair.

7. Cornrows With Beads

Cornrows are one of the best protective styles for your natural hair, allowing you to avoid styling your curls daily. Additionally, they look so flattering, especially when you add decorations like these adorable beads, transforming your cornrows into an even cooler summer look.

8. Claw Clip Updo

When we talk about easy and quick summer hairstyles, it doesn’t get easier and quicker than using a claw clip. This simple tool will be your favorite thing during summer, allowing you to get ready in a few seconds and leave the house with a pretty, effortless updo that’s just ideal for hot days.

9. French Braids

French braids are another classic you need as your go-to style on rushed summer days when you don’t want to think about your hair at all!

10. Mid-Height Bun With Face-Framing Pieces

Instead of always choosing a strictly low or high bun, try this mid-height option next time. Leave some face-framing pieces and slick back the rest of your hair, and you’ve got yourself an elegant and graceful summer hairstyle.

I hope your summer will be full of festivals, parties, and fun—basically everything we think of when the word “summer” crosses our minds! When you need an easy festival hairstyle, here’s a great idea for long curly hair you must try. Guaranteed, you won’t go unnoticed at the festival!
