Summer 2021: Top 15 Protective Styles for Your Summer Glow Up

With the official start of summer fast approaching this leaves many of us salivating at a chance to change things up for the 2021 summer. For many people, summer is the perfect time to adorn a protective style, express a different side of our personality, and enjoy the good times ahead without worrying about humidity. Typically during the summer, we tend to be more active and the more physically active you are, the more blood circulation you have. The more your blood circulates, this allows your body more opportunities to feed your hair follicles with the nutrients in your system. Summer is your best opportunity to get a boost in hair growth. In combination with a protective style, you could really see a noticeable increase in hair length. So what style do you choose? The choices are endless with everything from box braids, butterfly locs, and bobs to bangs, twist and hair jewels! The WH Shop has you covered so check out our Top 15 looks to give you that extra glow this summer.
