Between beach days and weekend trips, no one has the time—or temperature control—to blow dry their hair in the summer. Fortunately, lazy hot girl hair is now trending, so we can put our dryers away until fall.
Coined by L’Oréal Professionnel global ambassador Min Kim, lazy hot girl hair is equal parts chic, edgy, and low-maintenance, and can be achieved with air-drying, overnight braids, or hot tools (assuming you have amazing AC). This laid-back look is the ultimate style to wear in warm weather.
“Lazy hot girl hair is trending as a variation of the mermaid waves that’s still going strong, but but with a cooler, more laid-back messiness that’s also super sultry and sexy,” Min tells Glamour. “This look is about embracing perfectly imperfect which makes it suitable for hotter humid days when hair can be more difficult to tame, especially if your hair has some kind of wave or movement to it.”

It’s no wonder so many celebrities and characters on TV have been rocking the look as of late. “If you’ve watched The Idol, picture what the dancers hair looked like after they were done with a sweaty routine, or Carrie’s hair in And Just Like That. They served some lazy hot girl hair moments,” Min says. “And let’s not forget all the iconic lazy hot girl hair moments being served on concert tours this summer, like Beyoncé.”
Celebrity hairstylist Marc Mena agrees, and cites lazy hot girl hair is the latest iteration of a runway-inspired “undone” look. “In all the fashion shows, and as long as history goes, it’s always been that slept in, rock and roll hair,” he says. “To me, it’s referencing Kate Moss.”
As for how to DIY lazy hot girl hair? It depends on just how lazy you’re feeling. “A lot of clients now are asking for hair extensions with waves or loose curls, and I recommend letting hair air dry and to use leave-in conditioner,” sats celebrity extentionist Priscilla Valles, whose clients include Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner.
