Who has time to do their hair during the summer time? We show you how to skip the washing and blow drying routine and get cute summer hair in less than a minute.

The best hair accessories for super-easy summer hair.

hair band

Headband
Headbands are a simple way to pull your hair away from your face and look totally stylish.

Expert tip: Hollywood Hair Guy (he's done Ryan Seacrest and Leeza Gibbons' locks, to name a couple) Dean Banowetz suggests teasing the hair in the back a bit for a dressier look. Pull your hair back in a ponytail if you want to go more casual.

Try this headband from Target $12.99

Scarf
A super-easy way to look chic (without having to wash your hair) is to wear a scarf. Tie a knot or bow in the back and you're good to go.

Expert Tip: Dean suggests folding a scarf over to create a preppy look and keeping it thicker if you want to go more retro.

From H&M $9.29

bobby pins

Fancy Bobby Pins
Bobby pins are perfect for keeping back unwanted bangs and keeping flyaways under control.

Expert Tip: Place several bobby pins from the top of the hair to your ears to create a hairband effect, then do the same thing on the other side. It's easy and so cute!

Forever 21, $3.80

Flowers
Tie your wet hair back with this fancy floral accessory. Also a great piece to go from a day at the beach to a cocktail party without any hassle!

Expert Tip: For a fancy yet quick updo, pull your hair back in a messy bun and bobby pin a fresh flower on the outside. Fresh and gorgeous.

Love this one from Aldo, $6

Ponytail
It's easy to make a ponytail look finished by using this ponytail wrap by "tonytail." Made of synthetic hair to match your hair color, use it just like a regular elastic and voila!

Expert Tip: Wear a side ponytail for extra glam and to really show off your new polished pony!

i love using my daughter’s bobby pins. I put them in buns and stuff or just twist the sides and pin them back.
I’ll try the scarf routine!
