Summer calls for a few changes, beauty-wise, but one thing on everyone’s list is probably some form of hair removal—including the hair on your head. If you’re not already getting scissor-happy, a couple months of heat and humidity leveling out in the ’80s and ’90s will turn your otherwise luscious locks into swampy tendrils—like some scarf around your neck that simply won’t quit. Even updos are a form of heat-trapping—at least that’s how they feel on a particularly sweltering day.
They say hair grows quicker in the summer time, so what better time to experiment with a short cut? Consider it your automatic air-conditioner—your shoulders will thank you once they’re no longer flanked by swaths of heavy hair.
Take any of these 50 killer short cuts nicked from the runway and head to your hairstylist. No need to hunt for hair bands for the rest of the summer!
