Getting a dramatic haircut during the sweltering summer months could be just what you need to stay cool. Even better? It can even help set you up to get your healthiest hair yet.

Up next, we found seven different natural hair looks to inspire your own big chop.

Short Natural Styles: Frosted Cut

If you’ve been thinking about getting a close-cut shave, go even a step more extreme with an icy dye job.

Short Natural Styles: Tight Bleached Fro

Short Natural Styles: Loose Curly Fro

Although Keke Palmer shaved her head back in 2017, she’s rocking her naturals curls loose, short, and low this summer– and you can, too.

Short Natural Styles: Finger Waves

If you’re not opposed to tamping down your curls just a bit, a cute finger wave style is a glamorous throwback look to try.
