Summer may have longer days, but there’s still only 24 hours in each one! So while we’d love the time for elaborate hairstyles every morning, most days we barely find 10 minutes to dedicate to the process. But don’t worry – 10 minutes can be plenty of time when you have the right idea. These are our favorite summer hairstyles that don’t require much time, and of course, no complicated, unusual tools.
