Summer is the season for breezy dresses, icy treats, and, more often than not, ponytails—simply because they’re easy and keep your neck cool. But this is the time to step outside your comfort zone. From emerging Instagram trends to runway and red carpet styles that are bound to take off in real life, we’re predicting these seven looks will be everywhere for summer 2020.

1. Over-the-Top Flowers
There were a number of kitschy hair accessories on the Marc Jacobs runway, but the ‘70s-inspired faux orchids were among the most wearable and fun.
2. Over-the-Top Flowers
As long as there continue to be new and different ways to wear flowers in our hair, we’ll keep sharing them. At Missoni’s Spring ‘20 show, for instance, hair was wrapped and pinned around the stem to create a floral French twist that would be stunning for a summer wedding.
To create the two-strand plaits seen at the Ulla Johnson Spring ‘20 show, secure hair in a ponytail, section it off in two, twist each section into long ropes, wrap them around each other, then secure again at the bottom.
Even better, you don’t need crazy-long hair to wear the look, as this model on the Jonathan Simkhai runway demonstrates.
5. All Tied Up
Simply by replacing one of the sections in your braid with the scarf of your choice, you’ll get a cool new look—plus, the scarf adds major volume.
6. All Tied Up
Hairstylist Lacy Redway proves that you don’t need more than a few strips of black ribbon to make a basic ponytail look like a million bucks.
7. All Tied Up
For scarf hair 2.0, turn that braid into a topknot, like the style hairstylist Justine Marjan created for Jasmine Sanders.

8. Undone Updos
When you show up to all your summer barbecues in a messy topknot and giant sunglasses, just say you were inspired by Gigi Hadid in the Fendi Spring ’20 show.
9. Undone Updos
For an evening-ready take on the trend, try a swirly and sophisticated—but still nonchalant—bun like Selena Gomez’s.
10. Braided Pigtails
The models at Dior could have walked straight off the runway to Coachella Valley in their boho braids.
11. Braided Pigtails
In contrast, the pigtails at Max Mara were pulled tight and topped off with Breton hats for a sleek, utilitarian feel.
12. High Contrast Hair Color
From ‘90s-inspired highlights to Megan Rapinoe’s mix-and-match pastels, contrasting shades will be huge this season, according to Matrix Celebrity Hair Colorist George Papanikolas.
13. High Contrast Hair Color
“To keep the look modern, the highlights should be soft and delicate at the root, and gradually get thicker and heavier toward the ends,” says Papanikolas.
14. Shaggy Bobs
The classic cut isn’t going anywhere, but it is evolving. “Instead of clean lines, we’ll see more jagged edges with a roughed-up texture,” predicts Papanikolas. Lucy Boynton‘s crop is right on the money.
15. Shaggy Bobs
Maya Hawke‘s shoulder-length shag was one of 2019’s most covetable haircuts, so it’s no surprise she’s ahead of the trend with her slightly shorter version.
