There is nothing more fun than the summer sun, and the fun hairstyles we get to try to avoid the summer heat and summer sweat of course! Below are 5 heat-free summer hairstyles without the additional use of heat tools that may cause split ends, dry hair, and even more damage to your hair.
1. The Side Braid
The traditional side braid is effortless and an easy and fun way to add a personal twist to any look. Start creating the braid by putting all of your hair to the back of your head and start retrieving hair from the center of the head. Once you have a good amount of hair, simply separate the sections into three and twist the strands towards the preferable side of the head in which you want the braid to lay on. Once this step is done, you can secure the braid with a scrunchie and go on about your day!
2. The Dutch Braid
The Dutch braid is a lot more simple than most people make it out to be, and during the summer we want to make things as easy as possible. Therefore, all you need to do is start with three sections in the center or on the side of the head, and instead of crossing the sections outwards, you tightly cross them inwards while pulling larger strands from the rest of the head. Wha la! The perfect Dutch braid! Now if your feelin’ fancy, make two Dutch braids on both sides of your head, pull some parts out, and loosen the braids to add volume and style.
3. The Messy Bun
The messy bun is one of the most popular hairstyles during summer, just because it is so simple to create and ideal for getting unwanted hair out of your face asap. Perfect for summer and easy to style. First, you need to create a high ponytail and with the loose hair, wrap it around the secured section on your head. Then, grab a scrunchy and secure the bun in place! Now the fun part, start by pulling away small strands in your bun to make it look messy, and accessories if needed.
4. The High Ponytail
The most effortless hairstyle but most functional for the summer heat is the high ponytail. Start this hairstyle by making sure you brush your hair evenly, then grab all of your hair at once, bringing the hair all the way up to the center of your head. Once the hair is at the center of your head, make sure that you brush any bumps or fly-aways towards the high point of your head here the ponytail sits before securing it.
5.) The Small Single Braids
Add style and texture to any look by adding small braids to random parts of your hair before styling. This bohemian-inspired hairstyle is perfect for an easy and heatless look to secure any unwanted fly-aways and hide any unwanted volume caused by humidity.
Lastly, no look is complete without the perfect hair product. Try out our smoothing crème to smooth out your hair before styling to keep the humidity out while adding hydration and manageability.
