Low maintenance hairstyles are perfect for summer vacations because whether you are jet setting across South Africa, honeymooning in Jamaica or venturing off to Dubai your hair is taken care of. While there are tons of amazing hair looks for the summer, these styles are very low maintenace and keep you looking good without the work. Here are 10 vacation friendly hairstyles for summer!
Faux locs are perfect for an easy and carefree summer look! You can dress up your locs with hair accessories and if you’re looking to get more creative add curly hair to the ends, creating free-flowing goddess locs.
2. Box braids
Box braids are another great carefree style to rock on summer vacay. You can wear big or smaller box braids and still the look is easy and virtually effortless.
3. Braided ponytail
While this style may not last as long as faux locs or box braids, it’s perfect for a quick vacation and can be thrown in a bun to keep your hair off your back while you’re busy tanning on the beach.
Twists are a super fun hairstyle to wear during vacation and extremely versatile.
5. Short wash-n-go
By all means, if you have shorter hair or recently did the big chop, don’t feel pressured to throw weave or extensions in your hair if you don’t want to. Short styles are typically pretty low maintenance and a wash-n-go is much quicker as well as dry time.
6. Fro it out
If you can rock your curls effortlessly without having to worry about tangles or knotting during vacay why not just wear it out in a bold and beautiful curly fro!
Keep your curls tucked away and your protected with a cute and minimal effort cornrow or french braid style.
8. Rock a wig
If you live for a good wig throw it in your bag for vacay! As long as you secure it during that water slide in jamaica you should be good girl. Or better yet maybe just wear a scarf that day. Wigs are great because you can wear your hair in any style or length and can even bring multiple ones if you like to switch it up.
9. Bantu knots
Another great hairstyle to wear on vacay are bantu knots. Bantu knots can be worn as is or taken down for a cute curly look.

Sew-ins are another great option for vacation. Typically with quality hair you can get it wet without having to worry about tangling and you can also get a full sew-in so all of you hair is carefully tucked away.
