When it’s so hot that you only wish to drink ice cold lemonade all day long, thinking about elaborate hairstyles can only make you feel more tired and nervous. Luckily, there are super-easy hairstyles to wear this incredibly hot summer and look amazing. In addition, they are practical and sexy, so there will be no strands of hair sticking to your neck and back, making you carrying a ton of bobby pins with you.
This is one of the easiest hairstyles in the world and it will not take too much of your time to do. Simply pull several streaks that frame your face and wrap them in a small bun at the back of your head. You can do it casually, leave a strand or two out to get that messy look, or you can put some effort into it and make a delicate knot in the back, the kind KateMiddleton likes to wear.
Often you will get the best results if you do this with damp hair, which will also make these strands curly after they dry. If the rest of your hair is bothering you, you can always tie it up in a ponytail or a simple bun.
The key with this hairstyle is to leave it messy, otherwise your head will look smaller and you will look too serious. Messy strands of hair in a casual top knot will soften your overall look, making you look like you just woke up. Use smaller bobby pins only if you have really thin hair, otherwise they will move a lot and you’re going to need two dozens of it. Use larger ones, they will stay in place, but just to be sure, use strong hairspray as well. Remember, it’s the base of the hair near your scalp that should be smooth, not the bun itself.
Similarly to top knot bun, bandana bun should be casual and a bit messy, but to spice things up a bit, try using a silk scarf or any triangular piece of cloth. It will keep strands of hair off your face and neck, and it can be a great accessory in an outfit.
Bandana buns are especially popular with those who dig the pin-upand 50s rock’n’roll look. Make sure you leave your bans out, and you can even curl them a bit to make them stay in one place and not move around a lot.
Partially pinned curls
Soft curls framing your face are simply the best thing in the world. Start with damp hair, apply a curl cream and start twisting and pinning big sections of hair at the back while still leaving a few streaks to frame your face. If you have naturally curly hair, use Amika hairproducts for curly hair to get the best curls. Different kinds of oils and hair crèmes will make it easier to separate, comb, and braid your locks into beautiful hairstyles.
These styles are super-easy and anyone can make them. You only need to choose the one you like best and go with it until you find the one you like better. The heat has nothing on you, you are cool with your gorgeous hair.
