In a perfect world, the rays of the morning sun would slowly wake you up, and you’d roll out of bed with perfectly tousled waves. In reality, bedhead is real, and even after an hour blow-drying and carefully styling your hair, it starts to frizz the second you step outside and into the summer heat.
Apart from frizz, the heat can also make your hair strands stick to the back of your neck when you start to sweat. If you’ve ever experienced that, you know how it could be the most uncomfortable feeling. But these things happen because of hairstyles that aren’t appropriate for the weather.
When it’s too hot for an elaborate ‘do, try these quick and easy hairstyles that will keep you comfortable but looking on-point:
1. Braid it Back
Channel your inner Katniss Everdeen with a French braided hairdo this summer. You’ll be a girl on fire with so many French braid hairstyles to choose from! Apart from looking cool, most braids are so easy to do; they can be done in a minute. If you want more elaborate braids, though, you might have to enlist the help of a friend. Nevertheless, this hairstyle ensures your locks are neatly tucked away.
2. Top-Notch Top Knot
The top knot is one of the most versatile hairstyles, perfect for either work or play. All you need is a simple hair tie, and you can keep your hair out of your face and off your neck. You can create an artfully messy top knot by tousling your hair then using a light hand to gather them at the back of your head for knotting. You can also sport a more formal look by combing your hair back before knotting and securing it with a hair tie.
3. Handy Headbands
Don’t want to tie your hair up but also don’t want it on your face? Feeling lazy and can’t be bothered with curling, straightening, or any kind of hairstyling? Headbands are handy accessories for these situations. With the help of Kinky Curly Come Clean moisturizing shampoo, you can keep your hair soft and relaxed so that it looks beautiful as it cascades down framed by a cute headband.
4. Slicked Back with a Scrunchie
Lara Jean Song from the 2018 hit Netflix movie To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before made the ‘80s hairstyle staple scrunchies famous again. You can do pretty much anything with a scrunchie, but pulled back ponytail, half-knot, and top knot go best with this accessory.
5. Bare Your Face With Barrettes
It’s not just headbands that can keep wisps of hair off your face or scrunchies making a comeback from decades past. Barrettes or hair clips were popular in the ‘90s, and, thanks to nostalgia, they’re making their presence known once again. You can use cute barrettes to clip short strands of hair back or to simply jazz up your look.
Don’t let the heat cramp your style this summer. Try out these chic but comfy hairstyles and have endless fun under the sun.
