The Chinese fringes irritate your hot forehead and leaving your hair open for too long means almost melting into a pool of perspiration.

If you have started feeling this way, and don’t know what to do about it, this list is for you. Presenting the Top Ten Hairstyles for Women this summer that are sure to spare you the discomfort brought on by the effect of the rising mercury on your hair, without compromising on style or glamour.

This is the secret to fast and fabulous summer hair. Braids are a simple and interesting way to do your hair. Braids in any form you can think of. Over-the-shoulder braid is easy enough for the beach and polished enough for most offices.


2. Braided Crown

Braided Crown

This, folks, is the crowning act – the prettiest thing you can do to your hair this summer. It can turn you into a boho-chic style goddess in no time. Okay, not exactly in no time, but this 360 degree braid is not as difficult as it looks. You start by dividing your hair into two sections. Braid each section of your hair on either side. Once you complete a braid, bring it across your head, over the ear and secure it on the other side with hidden bobby pins. Now, pull the second braid so that it covers the end of the first one, and tuck it behind your ear on the other side so that both the ends are hidden from view. Pin the braids at appropriate places so that they sit firmly in place, and it’s all done. Now, instead of being dazzled by the summer sun, you’ll be dazzling everyone around you with this absolutely fabulous crown braid!


3. Top Knot with French Braid

Top Knot with French Braid

This is a wonderful variation of the simple top-knot, and makes it so much more interesting! From the front it’s like any other top-knot, but turn to the back and you have an unexpected upside-down French braid! Nothing short of ‘Wow!’ So how do you do you it? We start with the braid: Flip your hair upside-down and start French braiding it from the nape of your neck. At the crown, make a high ponytail with the help of an elastic band. Wrap your hair around the base of the band and pin it down to place it exactly at the center. Apply some mouse or hair spray to smooth down all the strands and you’re good to go!


4. The Asymmetrical Bob

If you’re willing to go a little shorter and experiment a bit further, the asymmetrical bob is a winner -both in terms of style as well as comfort. This bob has several layers of differing length, sweeping from long to short across the front of your face. It’s an added bonus if your face is oval-shaped, but even if it’s not; don’t be afraid to try out this bold new hairdo. It’s an ace style pick and can be called a makeover in itself! It’s so stylish you won’t even need to accessorize!


5. Ponytail with French Braid

Ponytail with French Braid

It might take time, but this one can take an ordinary ponytail and turn it into a killer hairstyle! It works really well even if your hair is unwashed as that just adds to the texture. Tie the lower half of your hair into a separate pony. Now, divide the top half into three equal sections on the three remaining sides. The left and right sections are French braided all the way to the pony from the top. Once you’ve braided both sides, braid all three sections together and wrap it around the ponytail. You’ll be elated with what you see in the mirror.
