Top 5 Beauty Trends Heating up the Summer

Hey everyone! It’s summer! While there are new beauty trends filling our feeds on TikTok and Instagram every day, some of the hottest new trends are designed with ease in mind. Because who wants to spend a ton of time on your hair, nails, and makeup when you could be out having fun in the sun? So get ready to look gorgeous in a flash, without all the fuss. Here are our top 5 beauty trends for summer.

Textured, Natural Hair

Long shaggy textured layers, textured bobs, and wavy layered mid-length cuts with bangs are in. Say goodbye to beachy waves that you make with a flat iron and say hello to natural waves that just magically happen with the right cut. These no-muss, no-fuss cuts are perfect for summer and even look great if you air dry.

Anything Goes Eye Liner

There are no more rules for eyeliner anymore. If you’re bored with your basic black, consider neon colors, white, or pastels. You can have a floating crease, a negative space cat’s eye, or even a dotted liner. You can go for full-on drama with bold wings and stick-on jewels or pare it down to just a kitten eye, a subtle flick at the corners. Experiment and find the look that you like best.

Playful Colors

While natural hair and makeup is always a popular look, this summer is all about experimenting with color. For hair, consider a bright pop of peek-a-boo color, like purple, on a layer of hair that is normally hidden. Or lighten up with an all-over pastel like pale pink or rose-gold. For makeup, anything goes, play with a rainbow palette of colors, and put those neutrals away for a while. Summer is all about fun.

Minimalist Nail Art

Make maximum impact with minimum work. Paint your nails a clear or neutral color, and then add some very minimal nail art, such as a few tiny flowers, polka dots, or some curvy lines. A nail pen or even stick-on designs can make you look like a pro, even if you don’t have a steady hand.


Skinimalism is skin care, simplified. Avoid the rough scrubs, chemical peels, and products that sting, and focus on kinder, gentler skincare, without a 20-step regimen. Look for products that moisturize, soothe and calm skin, and skip harsh anti-aging treatments. You may want to try skin massage (like gua sha) instead.
