Soaring temperatures are summer’s biggest pain, and wreak major havoc on your hair. Puffy, frizzy, out of control — it doesn’t matter what your hair type is, humidity will find a way to annoy you and your hair to no end.

The only way to cope with this muggy menace is to have a no-fail hairstyle you can turn to when things get out of hand. There are plenty of cool and exciting hairdos out there that will stand up against humidity while looking absolutely amazing on you.

Double trouble twists

Need to give your regular updo a little extra something? Check out this pigtails/bun hybrid with its unconventional part, small twin knots, and sleek texture, it is elegant and polished but with simple and young charm.

Directions

Start off on damp hair for this one and create a clean, deep side part. Follow that up with volume spray foam on the hairline. Blow dry your hair with a round brush. Once dry, make a center part at the back of the head and create a low ponytail on each side.  After securing your ponytails with elastics, twist each one into a low, tight knot.

Make sure the knots are symmetrical and that they are placed directly beneath your ears. Secure each twist with hair pins.  Spray super strength hairspray all over for maximum hold. Double the buns means double the fun, so get out there and enjoy that rad hairdo.

Controlled curls

Sometimes the best way to deal is to just go with the humid flow. For those with natural curls, dragging out a blowdryer and attempting to smooth out your hair is an exercise in futility — your curls are going to come back out as the day wears on. So instead of fighting them, embrace them. You can keep your coils and avoid frizz without a lot of product, time, or effort.

Directions

For this look, apply a pea-size amount of oil to damp locks to make hair softer and add some healthy shine.

Use your fingers — this will create a bit more of a natural look than using a comb or brush — to create a center-part then let your locks air dry.  If your curls need more definition, take a curling iron and create small bends on random sections of your hair and brush through.

If your hair still has a bit of frizz, take a little more of the oil and smooth it over any fuzzy bits. There you have it: summer-ready curls in just four easy steps.

The epic romance braid

The best part of this sweet style is that it is shockingly easy to create.

Directions

Use your fingers to create a clean center part, then let your hair air dry completely.  Grab a curling iron and start curling randomly selected pieces of hair to create some natural movement.

Take the front one-inch section of hair on your right and curl it away from the face. Repeat on the left side. Pull those two pieces to back of the head, cross over each other and secure with a bobby pin on each side.

Add lightweight texture by spraying the hair at the back of your head with a dry finishing spray.

Begin loosely braiding your hair into one big plait, starting it just below the pinned section. Secure with a hair tie and then use your fingers to create extra volume and texture at the crown. Now you have got a soft and wispy style with a romantic heroine vibe that will look stellar with all those pretty sundresses you’ve been stocking up on.
