Summer 2012 Hair trends

Here are the hottest hair trends for summer 2012:

Milkmaid Braids
Pinning braids up for a milkmaid effect like Dianna Agron is practical for summer, but it's also a great way to add some playfulness to a dressy outfit. For a textured appearance and more grip when braiding, apply a dry shampoo beforehand. 

Side-twists and long locks like Jessica Chastain's are whimsical and romantic.

Top Knot
A high-placed topknot like Nicole Richie's is the hottest hair trend this summer and it goes well with bangs and bold patterns.

Elastic headband
An elastic headband is useful but chic, as the Louis Vuitton spring 2012 show proved. Take the trend from day to night like Evan Rachel Wood with a black version of the accessory.

Beach waves
Beach waves are one of summer’s most popular styles. For a curlier, less tousled iteration of the look like my muse Kristen Bell, wrap two-inch sections of hair around a curling rod and mist with a lightweight hairspray

When worn loose and matte, beach waves have an edgier appearance; go for the unexpected by adding a fishtail braid like Ciara.

The Side Sweep
Update classic side-swept curls for summer by imparting volume and roughed-up texture like Kristen Stewart.

Bone Straight
Super-straight strands aren’t just for work. Julianne Hough proves that this sleek style is sexy, and can be low-maintenance too

Bun Galore
Instead of doing a traditional ballerina bun, take a que from Alison Brie and go for volume; height at the crown and a bigger, slightly mussed bun is fun-loving and flattering.

Fuss-free ponytails and summer go hand in hand. Make the look glamorous by sweeping hair back and adding statement earrings and trendy winged eyeliner like Diane Kruger

Braids are great
Instead of doing a side-braid, weave hair into a low back-braid like Nina Dobrev; if it happens to fall over your shoulder, it will be spontaneously sexy.

Knotted Scarves
Even without a bow on top, knotted head scarves are a must-wear for summer. Rihanna pulls this off perfectly

Short - Cut
A shorter cut like Olivia Munn's can enhance your natural beauty and make you look younger.

Parted Chignons
Simple yet sophisticated, Charlize Theron's side-parted low chignons are a no-brainer

Deep Curls
Summer is the perfect excuse for curly-haired beauties, so put down the flatiron. Hally Berry has done just that

Blunt Bangs
Straight-across fringe adds an edge to hairstyles at Marni, Antonio Berardi, Versace, and Elie Saab.

Retro Bouffants
Teased tresses had ’60s flair at Moschino, Oscar de la Renta, DSquared2, and Carolina Herrera. Get to teasing.....
