Haircuts you’ll be asking for this summer

Are you counting down the days until summer? Each year, we look to June 21, the first — and longest — day of the year’s warmest season, and wonder what kind of weather we’ll get.
According to Farmers’ Almanac and their “time-tested, 200-year-old weather formula,” we can expect a hotter-than-normal summer for 2018. While the northwest region of the United States may get some cool breezes, the rest of the country will feel the sun’s wrath. This is especially true if you live in the middle or western areas of the U.S. — the forecast shows some sizzling temperatures headed your way. Those in the southeast will feel the heat too, but they’ll also have to deal with harsh humidity.
No matter where you live, summer weather has a reputation for wreaking havoc on your hair. So, you have a couple options. You can either fight against the temps or you can roll with the punches. The List chatted with hair experts, salon owners, and stylists to get their opinions on the hottest haircuts of the summer season and — good news, ladies! — they’ll also keep you cool. Here are some options for your next hair appointment.
While reclaiming the mullet may be a little too fashion-forward for most of us, Shaun Surething, stylist and owner of Seagull Hair Salon in New York City, knows just the thing we should try. “The most anticipated haircut for summer is the choppy, bed-head bob,” he told The List, “The length is above the shoulders not much shorter than the chin. It’s more texturized and less layered.” Humidity can’t even wreck this look. According to Surething, it can actually even help by “amplify[ing] natural texture.”
If you’re sick of having your hair in your face, Surething says you can just tuck your beachy hair behind your ears. It’ll still look great. What’s even better about this look is that you literally have to do nothing to it. “Since the wet look is coming back in anyway, just leave the house with damp hair and let the sun and heat do the work.” Deal!
