Beat the Heat

Summer is here and with all the fun that comes with the sun and surf, there is one major drawback. The humidity, of course. It can ruin a good hair day.

Here are some simple tips to beat the summer heat…. And still look hot!

Put it in a bun!

We’ve all worn them, but today’s buns are sexy, messy and spunky. Here are a few to help with the summer-time frizzies.

Braid it by inversing the traditional French braid:

  • Part your hair on the side
  • Section off one inch on the side, along with more hair
  • French braid all the way down
  • Gather the rest of your hair and put it in a low, messy bun


Top Knot

  • Bring hair into a high pony tail
  • Use styling cream or gel to keep it clean looking around your face
  • Wrap hair in a bun and don’t worry if it’s not perfect


Messy Bun

  • Gather your hair at the nape of your neck, and wrap in elastic band
  • Pull it into a low bun by looping through the band
  • Grab pieces of hair to give your locks a messy, carefree look

Sectional Ponytail

  • Section your pony tail with elastic bands to give it a little flair and fun
  • Use elastic bands throughout your ponytail, setting them about an inch apart


Low Pony

  • Put hair in a pony, then drag your elastic band down about 1-2 inches
  • Using your fingers, put a hole in the middle of your ponytail (above your elastic band), then bring your pony tail up and through the hole.
