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!
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.
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.
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!
