7 Cute and Easy Travel Hairstyles for a Summer Holiday

Holidays are a perfect occasion for the boldest outfits to be broken in, and the

same applies to your hair! Indeed, it is also a season for the authentic beach waves hair

when you no longer have to contrive with a curling iron to achieve that very same look - the

ocean will do it for you.

Sometimes during long-distance travel, you might need to cut your hair yourself - that is

when hair scissors from Scissor Tech or suppliers alike may come in handy. However, if it

gets too hot for flowing hair, and if you are already thinking about cutting it off, why not give it

a chance and style it to make it look fun and fresh?

Below, you will find seven travel-friendly hairstyles, ranging from Dutch pigtails and French

braids to half-up top knots and double-twisted ponytails, among others. Read on and choose

what suits you best!


It is a classic and easy-to-do hairstyle, which will not take you more than five minutes to

create, but is very flattering, too. Take a section of your hair from the crown of your head and

divide it into three strands. Braid them and secure them with a hair tie at the end. It is that

Dutch Braid

The Dutch pigtail braids are a modified version of the basic braids. To do it, you take one

section of hair from the crown of your head and divide it into two strands. Then, you take a

strand from the front part of the right side of the scalp and cross it over the strand taken from

the back part of the left side of your head. Do the same for the other side, and then braid the

two strands together.

If you want to get even a more comfortable hairstyle, you can make a bun of your Dutch

braids at the crown of your head and secure it with some pins or hair accessories.

Twisted Side Ponytail

The twisted side ponytail is an easy and quick hairstyle that combines neatness with a touch

of style and elegance. To wear it, you just have to take a section of hair at the back of your

neck and pull small sections across until you can gather hair into a side ponytail. Make sure

that all hair is tucked in, and secure it with a hair elastic.

Double-Twist Ponytail

A double-twist ponytail is an interesting alternative to the twisted side ponytail that requires

nothing more than five minutes of your time and looks very stylish! To achieve this look, you

simply twist two sections of your hair into a ponytail and secure them with two hair elastics -

one at each end of the ponytail. Next, twist both ponytails together. It’s that simple!

Top Knot

Top knots are trendy, and they are effortless to do yourself! If you have medium to long hair,

then you should know how to make this style. First, part your hair in two sections - one

above the other - and secure them with a hair elastic or tie them together with bobby pins.

Next, gather all hair from the top of your head and wrap it around until it forms a ball. Secure

everything with another hair elastic, and voila! You are ready to go!

Simple Side Bun

Simple side buns are very popular because they are easy to do and don’t require much

effort. You just need to gather the loose ends of your hair into a ponytail at the back of your

head and secure it with an elastic band or a bobby pin so that it doesn’t fall out when you

turn your head. Next, gather all remaining hair onto one side of your head and secure it with

another elastic band so that it forms a simple bun at the side of your head. Voila! A simple

yet cute style! Or make two side buns for even more fun!

Chunky Ponytail

A chunky ponytail is an excellent option for short hairstyles because it keeps all flyaways

under control while accentuating the length of your hair. To do this style, simply pull all hair

from behind your ears onto one side of your head and secure it with an elastic band or a

couple of bobby pins if necessary. Then, pull all remaining hair from behind your ears onto

the other side of your head and secure it similarly. Voila! A cute chunky ponytail!
