It’s the mid-summer now, which means beach trips, barbecues -- and heat. It can be difficult to maintain your style with these high temperatures. Luckily, there are hairstyles out there that will help you beat the heat and control frizz. These creative updos will keep you cool and stylish.
Messy top knot. This trendy style is super convenient because it’s supposed to look messy. Brush your hair back into a ponytail, then divide the ponytail into two sections. Twist the sections around each other at the top of your head. Secure with a hair tie and bobby pins. For the on-trend ‘messy’ effect, intentionally leave a few face-framing strands out of the bun. This trendy style will keep you cool and trendy at the beach or pool.
Double Dutch braids. Also called boxer braids, this is the double braid style you’ve seen on Instagram. Start by dividing your hair into two even sections with a comb. Begin your braid on one side by crossing the two outside strands under the middle strand (not over, like with a French braid). Gradually add pieces of hair to the braid until you reach the nape of your neck and tie off the braid. Repeat on the other side. These chic braids will keep the hair off your face, keeping you Instagram-ready.
Low ponytail. This Kardashian-approved style is super low maintenance. Simply brush hair down, parting it in the middle. Then slick it back with a bit of gel to keep flyaways in place. Secure the ponytail at the nape of your neck with a hair tie. Add a bandana or headband for a glamorous, simple look.
