If you’ve been growing out your hair since the last time summer rolled around, it’s time for a change. Schedule a haircut or simply switch-up your current length by trying out a new texture or cool accessory. It doesn’t matter if you have waves, curls, or straight hair—just get ready to screenshot. These are the haircut trends you’ll see everywhere this summer.

1. Curtain Bangs

Sophie Turner debuted a super-convincing set of fake bangs while on her press tour for the latest X Men film. We love how the bangs are long and just graze the tops of her eyelashes, while her face-framing layers accentuate the style.

2. ’90s Long Lob

The ’90s trend isn’t going anywhere. Kim Kardashian West just debuted a longer shoulder-grazing lob that she’s been styling curled-under at the ends. This retro-inspired style is equal parts prim and trendy—just be sure to invest in a good round brush.

3. Barrettes Crazy

Both stylish and functional, use barrettes to pin hair back and elevate a side-swept look.

4. Romantic Details

  1. If you’re opting for an updo, leave front pieces down for something less formal and more effortless looking. Pair with a beaded headband to add an element of polish.

5. Wavy Lob

The universally flattering lob cut can be worn so many ways, but we love it wavy and loose for those hot summer days.

6. High Pony

The higher the temperature, the higher the ponytail. For those with ultra-long hair, gather it at the crown of your head in a sleek (and face-smoothing) half-up ponytail.

7. Loose Waves

Part bed head, part beachy texture, give your hair some body by curling just a few face-framing sections with a large curling iron.

8. Wet Hair, Don’t Care

Will the I-just-got-out-of-the-shower look ever get old? We hope not. Get this look by slathering on as much hair oil or styling cream you desire on dry hair (you hair should look wet–not actually be wet).

9. Top Bun

A top bun is perfect for when it’s too hot to deal with something that requires anything more than minimal effort. Take a cue from Lupita Nyong’o and dress up a bun with metallic accessories.

10. Sleek N’ Shine

When it’s hot and sticky outside, the last thing you want is hair sticking to your face. Slick it back in a center-parted half-up style for something a little less basic than a ponytail.

11. Straightened Out

The key to pin-straight hair in midst of all the humidity is a good anti-frizz spray (and a flat iron, of course).

Let your hair down with long braid: it’ll keep you cool and makes for a style that anyone can pull off.
