Forget sweaty, frizzled tresses that look like a hot mess when the heat and humidity sets in. We’ve got you covered with a list of cool summer hairstyles to help you beat the heat while looking très chic!
Low slung braided bun
A complicated-looking yet easy ‘do that lazy girls will love, recreate this low slung braided bun by simply gathering your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Then, plait it 3/4 down and wind the ends of your braid around the top portion and secure with either a clear elastic or some bobby pins.
Bobby Pins & Hair Slides
Give your elastic hair tie a break and let your bobby pins come out to play! Not only do they do great job at keeping hair off your face, they also double up as a cool hair accessory. For a minimalistic look, opt for a chic hair slider instead.
This easy hair do literally takes two minutes to achieve. Simply sweep part of your hair up and either twist it around to form a semi-neat bun. Alternatively, leaving it in a loop gives you that messy carefree look that’ll look great with wavy hair – this hairdo works well with second-day hair too!
You’ll be surprised at how polished a normal ponytail will be just by throwing a random braid into the mix. Depending on your preferences, hair length and braiding skills, you could do accent plaits, mini fishtail braids, etc. to easily spice up your look.
Whether it’s doing a subtle twist at the side or gathering your hair into an elegant half-do, hair twists are a handy alternative for those who can’t be bothered with braids. For an extra volumnised look, apply some product into your tresses before beginning this 5-minute hairstyle.
Ideal for those adept at braiding hair, these hairstyles take a bit more skill but are definitely worth the hassle. To achieve sleek braids, tame your tresses with a comb and keep your plaits taut throughout.
Insert Hair Bling
As hairstyles get more adventurous, so do the accessories! Be it hair rings, ponytail cuffs, intricately designed sliders and more, investing in a couple of interesting pieces can go a long way in making your look effortlessly unique.
