The warmer season is all about practical and versatile hairstyles. We always look for an effortless style, yet chic and feminine, whether we are talking about clothes, shoes, or hairstyles.

If short hair is the easiest alternative that offers the best solution during hot summer days, one cannot say the same thing about long hair. Considered as being the best reflection of femininity, long hair can sometimes become a real challenge. However, long hairstyle trends for spring/summer 2011 shouldn't be an issue since “natural” is the key word describing them. Take a look to the hottest trends and get ready to enjoy summertime to the fullest!

When hearing the word “natural” we all tend to think to something dull, lifeless, unable to add that special, glamorous effect. Still, you should know that long, healthy-looking tresses will never go out of style, while their amazing versatility allows you to update the look in no time.

For the spring/summer 2011 hairstyle trends, natural locks are making a huge comeback. We have seen them on many fashion shows, such as D&G, Ralph Lauren, Burberry Prorsum or Stella McCartney. The center-parting seems to perfectly complement a natural-looking hairstyle and it can help you get a new do in an instant. Still, if you want something more “studied”, gentle, bouncy wavy and curly locks are big for the warm season.

There are two main classic hairstyles that remain timeless finding every season new versions. The already legendary chignon (Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci, Oscar de la Renta) and the so stylish ponytail (Celine, Blugirl) are among the hottest long hairstyles trends for spring/summer 2011. From messy styles to extremely polished and elegant variants, these two trends were spotted on numerous shows. Therefore, whether you want something more casual and easy to make, or, on the contrary, something exuding femininity and a chic vibe, the new season comes with a myriad of options for every taste and style.

After being one of the breaking hairstyle trends in 2010, the already known top knot soon became even more famous. Its practicality and versatility made it gain popularity. The top knot is easy and quick to do and it is suitable for different occasions, formal or rather daytime events. Therefore, there is no wonder that in 2011 it makes a strong comeback as we have seen at Moschino or Z Spoke by Zac Posen. Another hairstyle perfect for spring/summer 2011 is the braid. In fact, it seems that since they entered into the spotlight braids proved that they are here to stay. They are fun, flirty and they can easily be achieved at home.

Slicked hair is an interesting trend that requires self-confidence and courage to wear it. Its rather unconventional, androgynous look makes it one of those edgy hairstyle trends that can be chosen for a wide range of events. Whether you choose the wet effect combined with a chignon or ponytail, or with hair free, wet roots and dry ends, the effect is the same. Since this is a special choice, make sure the attitude is the right one.

Headbands with butterflies and scarves on ponytails, hats and flowers are some of the most beautiful hair accessories for spring/summer 2011. Long hair looks mesmerizing when adorned with unique accessories. The perfect hair accessory can totally make a difference and add elegance and style to a simple look. In consequence, choosing the perfect accessory can be as important as finding the most flattering hairstyle.

Floral hair accessories (Marc Jacobs, Oscar de la Renta, Anna Sui) bring the fairytale touch, feathers, beads and unique hair clips emphasize a romantic, retro look, while hats (Marc Jacobs) remain the symbol of elegance. For a more funny and playful approach the colorful hats (Anna Sui) or the sailor ones (Christian Dior, Betsey Johnson) will instantaneously update your overall summer aspect.
