Copying a celeb's tresses hasn't historically worked well for us (Cough cough: “The Rachel”). But before we throw in the hair towel, we’re checking in with a few of Dallas’s top stylists to see the of-the-moment looks we can actually pull off.

Here, five hairstyles that are totally summer 2015.

BraidedUpdo

Braided Updo

?A loose braided updo is absolutely the best way to keep hair off your neck and face during the hot summer. You can achieve this with a braided side ponytail and a few bobby pins. Or book an appointment in our blow-dry lounge and addthe braid of your dreams ($50).?-- Kaycee Clark, co-owner of Dear Clark

Balayage Highlights

Balayage Highlights

“This French highlighting technique, in which highlights are hand-painted onto the hair without the use of foils, produces beautiful, multidimensional color and tone, lightens and brightens all base colors, and is more flattering than traditional foil highlights. It's great for all hair colors--from brunettes to auburns to polar blonds.” --David West, manager of Camille Albane

Pixie

Pixie Cuts

"We’re seeing short-hair trends for the upcoming summer season. Think pixie cuts with heavy highlights, and short and precise face-skimming styles." --Maleiah Rogers, owner of Era Salon

Era Salon, 4023 Oak Lawn Ave., Suite 120; 214-520-6767or erasalon.com

BlueHair

Bold Colors

“Summer is perfect for trying a fun hair color like pastel blue.” --Holly Dear, co-owner of Dear Clark

(If you think Smurf blue won’t pass in the boardroom, try subtle highlights on the ends of your hair like Selena Gomez.)
