With summer only a month away, there’s no time like the present to start dreaming up hairstyles that will be our crowning glory as we float around town in our Réalisation Par dress on our way to an evening of sipping on rosé. Since Instagram is often our first port of call when it comes to hair inspiration, we knew if we went straight to the accounts of our INF / Network that we would find exactly what we were looking for: Looks with the perfect amount of effortlessly chic Australian style.
There’s no denying influencers have a certain something when it comes to low-key but incredible hairstyles, so we handpicked five of the best for your viewing pleasure. Below are easy dos that you can pull together in less than five minutes (with nothing but your iPhone selfie camera to guide you) for those impromptu post-beach drinks.
Keep scrolling for easy how-tos, along with a few products to see you through the warmer months.
Hair accessories have had a chic upgrade this season (our love affair with scrunchies has officially returned), and tying a bright scarf around our top knots is high on our must-try list.

This is so simple, it almost doesn’t count as a hairstyle, but the side flip looks so good on Sara Donaldson that we had to include it. The trick is to go against your natural part (flip from the other side) so it looks fresh and encourages volume.
If you thought you couldn’t get a fringe due to the fact that it’s high maintenance, or your hair is too curly, think again. Chloe Hill is a poster girl for wild texture that we can’t get enough of it. If you have dead-straight locks but want to emulate, scrunch in a good curling foam before using a small curling wand all over.
Ally May Hayward shows us that braids are made for boating, snorkeling, and all of those good summer things. To make it less high school sports day and more Italian Riviera, add a small headscarf. If you have post-sailing drinks planned, just undo the braids for wavy texture.
Perfect for longer strands, this low looped bun takes two minutes to pull together. If your hair isn’t salty already, mist with sea salt spray (Sachajuan’s Ocean Mist, $40, is a tried-and-true favourite) before you fasten at the nape of your neck. Pull a few pieces out around your face, and rough up the rest of your hair so it doesn’t look too done.
