by 5.7K views 5.7K views  
Whether you’re off to work, running errands or just casually walking your dog, summer months are exactly when your mane turns to the bane of your beauty routine. With locks that’re slick with sweat 24*7, everyday is a bad hair day.
Few weeks into the season, we realised that our dear dry shampoo wasn’t able enough to do its thing with humidity working at full power. So, we took sweaty matters into our own hands and presented easy to do easy summer hairstyles, that look great on grimy hair.

So, we have rounded up five practical and the best summer hairstyles that’ll make the world a better place in May.

  • Twist To The Top

    Yep, we know the world sees you in topknots every other day but that doesn’t mean you can’t primp it up for the summers. We’re smart? Yeah, we know that.
    1. Step 1:

      Gather all your hair (don’t bother to fish out the brush) and hold it as high as you can. Make your messiest out-of-bed bun. While you’re at it, remember that strays are welcome, and that imperfection is perfection.

    2. Step 2:

      Grab your prettiest silk scarf and wrap it around your work of art, securing it with a knot at the end. Not only does it add character to the most last-minute hairdo but also keeps it intact for hours. No more scurrying to the powder room.

  • My Summer Crown

    The power of a cute headband is so underrated, it’s not even funny. This coif is an ideal pick for days when you don’t want to be bothered by open hair on a sunny brunch and still look gorg. 
    1. Step 1:

      Get your hands on a decorative elastic headband that goes all around the crown. We love how the Ferosh Leafy Headband works for the summers. Ferosh Leafy Headband works for the summers.  

    2. Step 2:

      Take sections of the length and roll them into and around the headband until all of it is up. You probably won’t need a setting spray for ’em baby hair ’cause you be a sweaty pig. Hehe.

  • Sleeky Straight

    This hairstyle means business. Wanna sport a no-nonsense work look on a hot, sweaty day? Look no further, my child.
    1. Step 1:

      Firstly, your mane is already prepped, thanks to an over efficient sweat factory that is your scalp. Duh. So, just grab all your hair and secure it with the tightest hair tie you got.

    2. Step 2:

      Take a few drops of smoothing elixir a.k.a. the Streax Professional Vitariche Gloss Hair Serum and run it along the length of your ponytail to curb the frizz and get that sleek salon finish.

  • Spaced Out Soul

    The wizards at Pinterest say that space buns are the top-pinned hairstyle ’cause how ridiculously easy and pretty is it. From being a festival favorite to a summer staple, this 90s double trouble is here to stay.
    1. Step 1:

      Since your middle partition calls the shots in this style, you’ll probably require some dry shampoo assistance to soak up the grease. Our bets are on the Batiste Dry Shampoo Floral & Flirty Blush Seduction Fleurie

    2. Step 2:

      Create a messy pigtail on one side and twist it into a rope. Coil the rope around into a bun and secure with a hair tie. Repeat on the other side and pull out a few strays to give it the final effortless touch.

  • The Braided Scarf

    Braids be the best but also massively done to death. Probably the best pick for the sweltering season, we took the most classic and comfortable hairstyle up to its A game. Find out how.
    1. Step 1:

      Section your hair into three chunks. Tie one end of the scarf to the root of the middle section.

    2. Step 2:

      Cross the right section over the one in the middle in the such a way that the knot doesn’t show. Continue with rest of the braid like how you would usually do.

    3. Step 3:

      Once you reach the end, secure it with a hair tie. In case you’re in for a long day, set your braid with the Wella Professionals Light Setting Lotion Spray and you’re done.
