Summer is known as updo season for a couple of reasons, including weddings, humidity and keeping long locks up and off the back of your neck. The thing is, our go-to ponies and topknots can start to look and feel a bit worn out come August, so it's important to have some fresh new hairstyles in your arsenal to keep you going until fall.
Below, you'll find five video tutorials for chic, warm weather hairstyles, all of which look great for any and every occasion. Which one will you try first?
1. Half-up braids
For a cute, almost princess-like summer hairstyle, try some adorable half-up braids. Team them with wavy hair for an on-trend, textured finish. You could even attempt this hairstyle with actual beach hair, or naturally air dried waves.
2. Side bun
When you want to keep it elegant, but soaring temperatures and rising humidity levels have other ideas, try a super chic side bun updo. It's so simple, but so pretty, and you can wear it absolutely ANYWHERE.
3. SLeek ballet bun
To show frizz who's boss once and for all this summer, try a sleek ballet bun. With some gorgeous twisted detail at the back and nary a flyaway to be seen in front, this hairstyle is polished and practical!
4. Beachy side braid
Even if you're totally landlocked, you can still get awesome beach waves. It's all about rocking tousled waves with a carefree surfer girl attitude! Combined with a cute braid, this hairstyle is both girlish and edgy.
5. Braided crown
More than just a festival staple, a braided crown hairstyle creates a gorgeous, bohemian vibe while keeping your locks firmly locked down on the warmest days. Keep your makeup natural and add a floral accessory for a cute, hippie look.
