    The best part about this braid? It actually looks better with dirty hair! To achieve this mussed up ‘do, French braid your whole head, leaving out the hair around your face, then loosely pin the remaining pieces to the back of your head.

  • bun

    A classic warm weather go-to, the topknot is a staple for a good reason. The look works for almost any occasion, and can be dressed up or down with the right attire. 

  • pink side braid
    3 of 9

    Try a twist on braided bangs by starting with a deep side part and French braiding a large chunk starting at the front of your face. Want to add a burst of color? Try hair chalk.

    Beat the heat with this twist on a classic chignon! Leave out the ends before pinning to create a faux-ponytail.

    If it’s too hot to wear a scarf around your neck, weave it in with your bun to give your updo an unexpected pop of color.  

  • textured pony
    6 of 9

    Instead of a plain ponytail, use a texturizing spray to give your hair a lived-in feel. The gritty texture wears well in the heat and will actually look better as the day goes on!

  • half twist
    7 of 9

    Twist two one-inch strands of hair on either side of your face, then pin in place--simple and chic!
