6. French Lace Fringe Braid

French Lace Fringe Braid

This is a unique hairstyle to relieve your heat woes and simultaneously make you stand out in the crowd. It’s a simple one, really. Just brush your hair into a neat side part, and start braiding the front of the longer side in the manner of a French braid, including more and more sections from the back. When you reach the ends, clip or tie the braid along with the remaining hair to one side of your neck, and let it hang down the front of your shoulder. Now you’re ready to take on the summers with a unique fashion statement, and it needs hardly any work!


7. The Sock Bun

Sock Bun

Don’t frown at the name. This one is a seriously elegant hairstyle which can take on the hottest of summer days without bothering you at all. Like with most other up-does, second-day hair gets best results out of the sock bun. Take a sock (yes, you really need one), and cutting of the toe part, push your hair through it like you would to make a high ponytail. Now, take the ends of the pony and spread them out over the sock. Start rolling the sock as if to make a doughnut, taking the hair along with it in each roll. Once you near the base of your head, the rolling gets easier, and when you’ve reached the surface, you’ll find that your bun sits safely on the top of your head, if you’ve done it right. Make sure the strands are well tucked in and cover the sock completely. Add a few bobby pins and a bit of hairspray for finishing touches.


8. The Tousled Chignon

Tousled Chignon

If a carefully careless look is what you’re looking for, the tousled chignon is one of the easiest and prettiest buns you can find! The best part about this very summer hairdo is that t’s effortlessly attractive, without getting too messy or uncomfortable. All you need is a lot of bobby pins to keep the bun in place. You can secure it high up or lower near the neck to create two distinct variations of this very flexible up do. Brush back slightly teased hair into a ponytail, and then turn it around carelessly a number of times, finally securing it with the pins. Smooth on some hairspray and the look is complete!

This one’s especially for voluminous hair, but requires a little bit of work. Yet it’s totally worth it, because once it’s done, you can forget all about your summer hair concerns for as long as this beautiful knot sits pretty on top of your head. Start by dividing freshly washed and dried hair into several one-inch thick sections, except the bottom. Blow-dry each section carefully until they are all equally straight and smooth. Now, tie the bottom section into a ponytail that rests high on the back of the head. Once you’re done, wrap this pony around itself over and over again to build up the hive, clipping or pinning it own after each turn. Use some hairspray to ensure that it stays in place. The thinner sections can then be pulled back and secured with the hive to complete the look at the back. In front, comb out the remaining strands just the way you want – a side swept fringe or bangs parted in the middle. And there you have it -your very own easy summer version of the iconic beehive!


9. The Long Bob

Long Bob

You just can’t take the heat anymore, but you’re apprehensive of cutting your hair too short? If the answer’s a yes, the long bob is for you, Goldilocks! It’s neither too long, nor too short, as the name suggests. It’s what you call ‘just right’! It allows an appreciable length for those who are dead scared of short crops, and yet, is enough of a bob to ensure that your hair doesn’t get all hot, sweaty and prickly, making room for enough air to pass through those bangs. It’s hassle free. You can play around with it, add accessories, and wear it exactly the way you want. What else do you need?


10. The Tucked Over Pony

Tucked Over Pony

An ordinary ponytail when done neatly looks good enough, but it may not give you all the comfort you need. You wouldn’t like it constantly swishing to and fro over the nape of your neck on a 42 degree Celsius afternoon, would you? So here’s a look that lets you have the pony sans the swish, and this is how you do it: First, tie your hair into a simple high ponytail, with an elastic band. Next, wrap a section of your hair around the base, to hide the elastic, taking care to tuck all the strands in. Finally, stretch out the ends of the tucked pony to give it a chic, fanned out effect. Smooth on some hairspray, and you’re done. It’s that simple!
