5 Low-Maintenance Hairstyles to Get You Through the Rest of Summer
Some days, we appreciate a good blowout or an ambitious updo we found on Pinterest. But on days when searing heat and torrential thunderstorms are both equally plausible, they’re not exactly sustainable options. Here are five no-fuss solutions that look great—and can withstand chaotic summer weather.
Low, Easy Pony
Yes, we know this is nothing revolutionary. But the key to this version is leaning into your natural texture for a romantic, carefree effect. If your strands are naturally stick-straight, try a volumizing texture spray for some added oomph.
Double Dutch Braids
Classic and beach-ready. Curly gals should apply a leave-in conditioner for extra slip while braiding (and bonus moisturizing benefits), while finer-haired ladies may want to try a texturizing powder for added grip and volume.
OK, full disclosure: We just made up that name. But leaving the tail loose gives the classic ’do a bit more attitude while still staying off your neck. (And it’s a great solution for second-day hair.)
It just so happens to be this editor’s go-to style—not only does it give off low-key Shakespearean-meets-’90s vibes; it’s actually an ideal solution for when you don’t feel like blow-drying. Looks great as is, or let it down when your hair’s 90 percent dry for perfectly imperfect waves.
Already worn a topknot three times this week? Mix it up with dual mini buns, one above the other. (Bonus: It’s a great way to show off that sun-kissed balayage.)
