8 Summer Styles to Keep The Hair Off Your Neck

It’s hot. It’s sweaty. It’s sticky. It’s summer! As the temperatures rise, keep your style cool as a cucumber by trying one of these easy styles inspired by your favorite celebs. (Because a top-knot only goes so far.)

1. Slicked French Twist

Slicked French Twist

Take a cue from Nicole Richie and go sleek with a quick French twist! Use pomade to slick your hair back. Create a deep side part, twist down, then twist up, folding the hair on itself. Here’s a quick tutorial that will help on YouTube!

2. Sectioned Hair

Sectioned Hair

This style works with both a tousled or sleek texture. Create a ponytail, then section off two or three more sections using clear hair ties. Pull sections out from the middle to create more texture and a “poof,” like Odette Annable’s style. 

3. Stylish Scarf

Stylish Scarf

Create a bun or ponytail and add a headscarf for an easy polished look like Eva Mendes. (Seriously, does it get easier?)

4. 80s Inspried

80s Inspired

Yes, the scrunchie look is totally an option and nothing looks more fierce than this braided style seen on Selena Gomez. 

5. Braided Bun

Braided Bun

Love this look by Victoria Justice? Tousle and tease your hair to have some volume at the crown (curly hair curls, skip this step!). Pulling your hair back but leaving one small section aside, twist hair into a ballerina-inspired bun. To finish, braid the small section and wrap around the base of the bun. Secure with bobby pins. Viola! 

6. High Pony

High Pony

Nothing is easier and looks better than a high ponytail. Try this sleek version with a voluminous tail, just like J.Lo. 

7. Fishtail Braid

Fishtail Braid

Look as effortlessly gorgeous as Eva Longoria with (we’ll admit, a little effort) by doing a fishtail braid. Try this YouTube tutorial to get the look! 

8. Milkmaid Braids

Milkmaid Braids

Try this Bella Thorne-inspired look by creating two braids on either side of your head. Pull up towards the middle to create a “crown” and pin.
