There is no better combination of chic hairstyle and comfort than going for a headband braid for those long hours in transit. It is also a good option for women who like to keep their hair down, but wanted to keep the bangs out of the way. This trendy plait works on all face shapes, too. Meanwhile, there is a certain playful touch associated with this hairstyle.

A top knot will never go out of style because it serves a lot of purpose. Evidently, it is one of the best hairstyles for keeping hair off of your face. Hence, it is not only a trendy look but also highly functional. The best thing about wearing a top knot is that it is one of the most forgiving hairstyles around – there is no right or wrong way to wear it. And don’t even get me started on how simple it is to make your own top knot…

Pigtail Braid

Another functional hairstyle for your summer road trip is a pigtail braid. The fact that it parts your hair into two sides provides comfort to the back of your neck during hot summer days. Meanwhile, securing them into a braid helps to ensure that you won’t have to deal with frizziness caused by the humid weather. This is also a fantastic hairstyle if you like to wear hats as it does not get in the way.

Loose, Messy Ponytail

A ponytail is the go-to hairstyle for women on-the-go. But for your summer road trips, add some spice and sass to your look by going for a slightly undone look to your ponytail. Add lots of volume with teasing and spritzing some volumizing mousse into your hair before gathering them into a ponytail. You can also pull out small sections of hair along the side of your face to create a framing effect.

Short ‘Do

Short hair is the hot trend for summer 2014. Why don’t you use this excuse to go for a short ‘do, especially if you have considered chopping off your locks for some time now? A short haircut like a bob or pixie is also ideal during summer road trips because you don’t have to worry about staying hot and having to keep your strands in line. It is carefree without losing its chic vibe.

Beach Waves

The quintessential summer vacation hairstyle is the most popular choice of look for summer. If you like the carefree vibe of this look, and if you can deal with the fact that your long hair is down, it provides an easy way to style your hair for those long summer road trips. What makes it an even more convenient choice is the fact that you can wash your hair the night before your road trip, then braid your hair and leave it on overnight. The morning after, you simply take out the braids for an effortless beach wave. No more styling in the morning and you’re good to go! What is your favorite hairstyle to wear on the road?
