So what did I do to celebrate summer solstice this year?
I got shorter hair for the longest day!
All Hair By Destiny is my go-to gal (in all transparency, she’s also my daughter)!
What is summer solstice anyway?
It’s the day I revealed my new shorter haircut, and the first official day of summer- the longest day of the year. In the Northern Hemisphere, this happens on June 21st when the sun reaches its highest peak.
Hold off on the crocodile tears for the Southern Hemisphere. In no way are they left out of this marvelous occasion.
In fact, they get a double dose- like Christmas times two! When the summer solstice happens for them, it’s usually on December 21st during the holiday season- lucky ducks!
Summer solstice also gives us the longest twilight of the year. It’s usually an additional hour or so after sunset.
Summer hair, don’t care.
In this post, I share how Destiny gave me my new summer drip (that’s what the young people are saying)!
I say, “check out my summer fresh!”
My style with whimsy tip:
Bring on the big, bold accessories for a kitschy vibe with summer fun appeal!
My dress (care of my partnership with SheIn) | Jessica Simpson sandals | Patricia Nash handbag | Sojos cat eyes | similar Mark and Graham cuff bracelet | similar Etsy ring | similar Baublebar earrings | All Hair By Destiny |
Asymmetrical bob haircut
Destiny big-chopped the back of my bob haircut (see my before hair HERE).
My hair is really thick, so she went in with thinning shears to remove a lot of the bulk.
It lays just right.
We also decided to exaggerate this style by keeping one side of my hair longer than the other in this unique, asymmetrical bob haircut.
This cut is so summer-chic! I love that it shows off more of my shaved undercut.
Hair gets lighter.
Skin gets darker.
Water gets warmer.
Drinks get colder.
Music gets louder.
Nights get longer.
Life gets better!
Destiny used foils in my hair to achieve a natural-looking shade of red for a warm summer glow.
I think these highlights show beautifully in the summer sun!
I’ve been using these products to style my new ‘do.
What’s your favorite change to make in the summer? I’d love to hear from you in a comment below.

Really cute haircut!!! And you don’t look old enough to have an adult daughter!!
Jennifer, you’re the best! Nicest thing I’ve heard all day 😉
That Bob is amazing!! It looks fabulous on you. The only thing that usually changes for me in the summer is usually just my lighter clothing. I’m natural now so I’m on a different hair journey where I’m trying to grow my hair back out.
Hi, Della, and thank you! Im also natural now! I just keep my hair straightened.
The outfit looks so summery and fashion forward. Love the summer haircut, too!
Thanks, Cynthia! I love anything that screams SUMMER- It’s my favorite season!
I think this is a great idea. I love your haircut.
Thanks, Kelly! I’m really enjoying it 😉
Love the shorter hair looks great. I would love to try something like that.
Thanks, Jenny! I’ve been really enjoying it this summer!
Such a cute cut – It looks great on you! I tend to wear more breathable clothing in the summer months since it gets really hot here in Florida.
Thanks for the compliment, Sheila! Yes, I understand—it gets super HOT in Florida!
I love your new haircut, such a cute outfit too!
Thanks so much, Betsy! It’s perfect for summer.
Really cute haircut just in time for summer. I love your style!! So laid back and well nurtured. 🙂
Thanks so much, Latrice! And, yes—my haircut has been perfect for the summer!
Love your hair! I have a bob – need to make it asymmetrical.
Yes! Do it, Susan! #ClubBob
The cut looks great! You wear this style well!
Much appreciated, Donna 😉 I’ve been enjoying my haircut this summer!
Cute haircut! And I love those sandals!
Thank you, and my sandals are so comfy, too!
Your haircut is making me seriously question the year and a half I’ve spent growing mine out. I miss my inverted bob and you are rocking the heck out of yours! Your entire outfit is perfection too.
I was growing out, too girl! I’m glad I did this cut for summer—I’ll grow back out again the fall 😉 Like you, I love an angled bob. I pin them all the time on Pinterest!
i like the new do! summer starts pretty much in april for us down here in the south hahaha. i don’t think i’ve actually been anywhere where it was the “first official day of summer”!
You’re so right, Bianca, and thank you for the compliment 😉
Looks so cute!! Texas heat I totally understand the love of short hair!
Yaasss, Kim! and I spend time between Vegas and VA Beach (in the south 😉
That hair cut looks so good on you!!! <3
Thanks so much, Ashley! I’m enjoying it and just bought some new hair clips today 😉
I love the new haircut. And, that dress is adorable on you!
Thanks so much, Brenna!
Great cut! I should get my hair cut too, especially given the heat, but I never get around to it…
I understand. It’s also a hard decision to make if you don’t have a regular stylist you trust for a big chop!
Your hair is tripendicular! I wish I had a stylist half that good. I’m in the process of growing out yet another awful haircut. Not as bad as the Def-Leppard-circa-1980 mullet that led to me needing to wear a hat every moment for two months, but still… YOUR hair is a work of art!
Laughing out loud thinking abut the 80’s Def Leppard mullet ‘do! I hope you can find a trusted hairstylist soon 😉
Great article! Thank you very much!
Thanks for reading 😉
I recently cut my hair to my shoulder length after having it long forever. Showed the stylist pictures I found online. I love my new chic look & it’s incredibly liberating to ditch all that hair that took away from my style.
It sounds like a fab cut, Nancy! I love that you felt liberated and so chic 😉
Love the dress, and hair. 🙂
Thanks, Jessica! It’s really hot today and I’m really appreciating the haircut 😉
