Botticelli Haircut Trend For Summer

The "Botticelli" Haircut Trend Has Summer Written All Over It

Botticelli Haircut Trend For Summer

There are two types of people in the summer: those who cut off all their hair into a super-short style, like a bob haircut, and those who keep it long and embrace their inner mermaid the entire season. If you fall into the latter category, you're going to love the "Botticelli" hair trend.

If the name sounds familiar, it's because the haircut trend is inspired by Italian Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli. Random? A little bit, but hear us out. "Hair in this style is worn extremely long and unstructured, with a natural, fluffy wave," Tom Smith, celebrity hairstylist and international color creative director for Evo Hair, tells POPSUGAR. Just picture the people in Renaissance paintings with their long, tousled, flowing hair.

Here, we're breaking down everything you need to know about the "Botticelli" hair trend.

What Is "Botticelli" Hair?

Smith describes "Botticelli" hair as being "extremely youthful," with a "Mother Earth," flower-child vibe. "This style shows a free and relaxed energy," he says. The extra-long length also gives the look a luxurious, ethereal feel, but in an effortless way. The "Botticelli" haircut trend is a drastic departure from the choppy shag haircuts that have been the go-to all winter long — we're talking the ever-popular bixie, octopus, and wolf cuts — but as the weather warms up, it may be just the thing you need to refresh your look.

Similarly, Philipp Haug, salon owner of Haug London Haus and Schwarzkopf Professional partner, says the look is defined by a glamorous cascading curl and soft texture to frame the face.
