8 Frizz-Friendly Hairstyles for Summer
Sometimes it’s better to embrace the humidity
It’s 95 degrees, and the last thing you want to do is spend an hour serum-ing, drying and straightening your hair. It’s hot, exhausting and there’s a 99 percent chance it’ll frizz right up the second you step outside. Instead, opt for one of these easy-to-execute styles that will have you looking cool when the weather is anything but.
The Intense Braid
Is Blake’s braid a little dominatrix-y? Maybe. Is it also guaranteed to keep strands off your face and neck? You bet.
a tamer plait
Not ready to commit to such a tight look? Try Penelope’s toned-down but still super-chic version.
the messy bun
The greatest thing about a messy bun is that a little texture (yes, even frizz) makes it even better.
a side pony
Christina Milian proves that as long as you’ve got smooth strands up top, the pony itself can be as crazy as you’d like while still maintaining some sophistication.
a wavy pony
Same goes here, but with the addition of a bobby pin and just a hint of mussed-up texture at the crown.
If you tire of a basic bun, try wrapping up in a light silk scarf. Not only will it tame flyaways, it just looks so darn cool.
the deconstructed topknot
Sometimes it’s not worth fighting the frizz. For those times, embrace the volume and gather hair at the top of your head for a dramatic topknot.
sleek and side-parted
The heat might be killing you on the inside, but you’ll have everyone fooled while rocking this polished style. To get the look, comb a bit of anti-frizz shine serum (like this one) into your hair and secure in a tight pony. To tackle extra flyaways, a toothbrush spritzed with hairspray does wonders.
