4 Incredibly Gorgeous Ways To Wear Your Hair In A Heat Wave

by Stephanie Montes

Trying to achieve a sleek hairstyle in the dead of summer is unrealistic (hello, frizz), and sometimes a topknot feels too obvious. Because the battle between looking hot and looking plain ol’ overheated is a constant once temperature hits heat-wave status, we’ve rounded up 4 gorge hairstyles that can withstand the sweaty season. Spoiler alert: You’re going to need a turban.

Tie It In A Turban

Beat the heat by tying your hair in a pretty silk scarf (or if you lack hand-eye coordination, choose a pre-tied one you can just slip on). Complete the look with a sultry smoky eye and statement earrings.

Sport A Ponytail

A simple ponytail is feminine and sporty in the best way possible. Add warmth to your complexion via a coral lip-and-cheek duo, and throw on mirrored shades to complete the effortless-cool look.

Make The Most Of A Frizzy Situation

Spritz a sea-salt spray on dry hair while scrunching it to achieve texture and volume. For added definition, use a skinny curling iron on random pieces of hair. Balance out the bold look with a statement necklace and nude lip.

Opt For Flower Power

An embellished braid or bun is always a good idea because it keeps hair out of your face and never looks basic. Work a texturizing paste into hair before pinning in flowers to keep them from falling out. Pair with a floral dress for a perfectly ethereal, boho look.
