Posted by on July 19, 2012 | 5:25 pm EST

Although summer is all about living wild and free, women are not excused from not looking perfect head-to-toe. This season, the warm weather doesn’t always translate to months of shabby ponytailed hair. As such, we’ve pored through various red carpet events to curate some of the best celebrity hairstyles that are perfect for summer.

While long, loose waves remain the hairstyle of choice, more daring variations of the classics have also emerged. From the quiet sophistication of a lowbun to the ethereal touch that floral headgears leave, styling your hair for the season leaves you with a kaleidoscope of options. With the number of standout hairstyles on parade, here are our top picks as the summer hairstyles to try now.

When Keira Knightley stepped out with this ethereal red headband on, the fashion world was left a bit puzzled with how this was supposed to be fashionable. We at Fashion Glamour however, immediately fell in love with the whimsical and fairy tale-like appeal of this accessory. This season, accessorize and experiment with stellar headbands or scarfs to get that true summer child spirit.

Whether you call them braids or plaits, these have been a favorite among fashion and Hollywood’s most free-spirited ladies. Superbly chic and easy to do, braids can be done in virtually any direction, size and style possible. From a braid that looks like a headband to one that can be spiraled into a sophisticated updo, the options are limitless for this summery hairstyle.

Women were quick to flip their hair back and gather their hair into a knot when this beauty trend arrived. It remains in style even after almost a year—eons in the fashion world—since it first appeared, which is why we’re keeping this hairstyle on this list. For the women who have yet to venture out from their hair routine, the top knot is one of the easiest—not to mention ideal—summer hairstyles of the bunch. Although Cara Delevingne’s top knot looks less stellar than usual for some, we adore its almost-flat finish.

Short hair has always been associated with women with a strong sense of adventurism. As such, daring to cut off your long locks will truly transform your look by epic proportions. Far from the common notion that short-haired women are left with only a handful of options, this hairstyle can be just as versatile. From a slicked-back hairdo to a disheveled and zigzagged part, this hairstyle has a lot more to offer at less the amount of hair products to use.

Rooney Mara may have only sported severely blunt bangs for a movie role, but that didn’t dampen our fascination for this trend’s capacity for style. Besides its innate knack for contouring a woman’s face, a fringe is one of the most non-traumatizing ways to update one’s look. This summer, the fringe has taken on a variety of shapes, texture and thickness. From the romantic side-swept variation to the boldly graphic cuts, getting a fringe this season truly leaves you with more options.
