One of the perks of summertime is getting to experiment with your curly look while you're on vacation. The oh so bright sun offers us the creativity to find new hairstyles to prevent heat damage and the boldness to rock a new look. Here are some of our favorite hairstyles curly girls are sporting through the sunshine months that we're loving.

Pineapple

This is one style every curly girl can do no matter the season. Whether rocking it high, low or to the side, this is a manageable, frizz free look that showcases the beauty of your curls. Hot summer nights make this an ideal hairstyle to keep your hair off your neck and accent with a fun head wrap or accessory.

Color

My oh my can we get a hip hip hooray for all the bold, vibrant curls this summer? Summer is the perfect time to experiment with bright hues of bold, deep purples, highlights, and everything in between. You can go for a drastic look and color your entire head or have subtle traces of color on your tips. The key with color is proper conditioning and maintenance so you don’t leave your hair damaged afterward. The perfect thing about this season is that whether on vacation or heading to a festival there is no such thing as too much color.

Braids

We’ve been preaching all summer about protective styles and they are truly the best way to keep your curls protected while you're on the go plus help with hair growth. Box braids, feed in braids, crown braids, and can all give a regal style that transforms your day-to-day look. They allow you some versatility with your hair and effectively hide your ends from potentially harmful effects of regular styling, manipulation, and the environment.

Buns

 Whether you wear it super high or go for a romantic look wearing it low, you can never go wrong with styling your hair a bun. These double buns are fun and great for these hot summer days when you don't have much time to style your hair. Rocking a high bun is excellent for a playful look and helps keep your hair off your neck.
