me summer, and many of us chop off our lovely long locks because well, summer is when you don’t want your hair to be too long, unmanageable and all over you. However, if you’re among those who just won’t part with their gorgeous long tresses, we have for you 10 awesome hairstyles for long hair that are perfect for the summer. Not only will they make you look great, they’ll make your hair easy to handle as well. Have a look, ladies.
Deepika Padukone is blessed with long, lush hair and no one out there is better than her for some hair-spiration, ladies. This is an easy and super chic hairstyle to pull off for your evening out with friends. Part your hair at the centre and make a neat, low bun at the nape of your neck. Use some hairspray to tame any flyaways and secure that bun with enough hair pins.
While the half top-knot has always looked badass, this is a great way to give it a little twist. Start braiding the centre section of your hair right from the hairline. Then tease that braid from either side to add some volume. After that, collect the entire braid in a top-knot and you’re good to go! This will ensure that your hair is off your face, and it looks ultra stylish too.

How cutesy is Alia Bhatt’s look here? If you have medium to long length hair, this is just the ponytail to make for your next date. Neatly comb out your hair and collect all of it in a high ponytail. Then separate a section of your ponytail, and wrap that around the hair tie. Place some bobby pins right under the pony to ensure it doesn't droop and remains perky all through the evening.
The messy side braid is a hairstyle that you can totally do for a wedding or a day out with the girls. Make a side parting and collect all the hair on one side. Braid it and then pull all the sections of the braid to make it appear more voluminous and messy. You can let a few tendrils loose too for that perfectly undone look. Stunning, isn’t it?
When it comes to the side bun, there are multiple kinds and each of them is a great hairstyle to sport in the summer. To do this hairstyle in a more simple way, all you have to do is collect all the hair on one side, barring the section right above the ear. Then, take the separated section and braid it up across the back, till where the rest of the hair is collected. After this, form a bun right behind the other ear. Tug at this bun and the braid to give it a teased and tousled look, and voila! This one’s so elegant!

A half bun with flicks framing the face on either side - now that’s a hairdo many of us would like. To look just like Sonam, make a bun using the top half section of your hair. Let the loose hair in the bottom half of your head fall over either shoulders and pull out some flicks to make this hairdo look all the more stunning.
For that special date you have planned, go for this hairdo, girls. Make a deep side parting and collect all the hair in a neat and tight side ponytail right behind the ear. Use some spray to keep the hair in place throughout the evening and use bobby pins as and where required for the sleek effect.
