Summer Hair Forecast

Beat the heat! We’ve got weather-ready styles for every temperature

Forecast: Warm
A sleek hairstyle like Beyoncé’s is stunning—but won’t always survive the great outdoors. To avoid looking like a sweaty, frizzy mess, save this ’do for a day when it’s comfortably warm with a slight breeze and no chance of rain.

Forecast: Warm Unless the heat is stifling—which it isn’t—you should embrace your tresses! Save the high-bun for steamier temps and try a sexy yet practical half-updo like Jessica Alba’s for an evening out (Alba wore the style to a recent dinner party).

Forecast: Warm Blake Lively’s cascading locks are hot in more ways than one. If you have a thick mane too, push it to the side and let your neck breathe. Throw in some fishtail braids and you’re red-carpet ready!

Forecast: Warm
Beach waves are always en vogue for summer—and the more texture they have, the better (so if frizz strikes, don’t fret). Nicole Richie pulls off the trend perfectly.

Forecast: Hot Straight, bluntly cut bangs are in, but sweaty bangs aren’t. To avoid the stuck-to-the-forehead look, opt for sparse fringe like Zoë Kravitz’s.

Forecast: Boiling In the midst of a heat wave? Take it off! Alexa Chung proves a short chin-length bob can be superstylish. The best part: If you go for a textured, delightfully untamed look like hers, you can relinquish control of your tresses.

Forecast: Boiling
Is stepping outside your air-conditioned home like entering the Wild West? Do as Cowboys & Aliens actress Olivia Wilde did, and go for a high-pony. Incorporating volume at the crown catapults the look from the gym to the red carpet.

Forecast: Boiling
Whitney Port takes her high-pony a step further and turns it into a bun. A few bobby pins, and you can be ballet-chic too!
