Summer Hairstyles For the Pool

3 Summer Styles to Try Poolside

When you're headed for a dip in the pool, you need a hairstyle to protect your strands from chlorine overload. Buns, braids, and ponytails will all do the trick. Take note of these beach-ready styles on Julianne Hough, Jenna Dewan, and Crystal Reed for inspiration.

  • Julianne's imperfect topknot is simple to throw together as you wade in the water. Just make sure to keep a hair tie and pins in your beach bag to keep your bun in place.
  • Try a halo of braids (seen on Jenna) to keep longer hair from getting wet. Do this style on damp strands with leave-in conditioner, and you will have picture-perfect waves for a night out after a long day in the sun.
  • A messy fishtail braid like Crystal's is easy to do on wet or dry hair. Protect your strands from chlorine and chemicals by wetting hair before you hit the waves.
