Beat-the-Heat Summer Hairstyles
Summer-proof your hairstyles when humidity strikes with these expert tricks
Beachy braidA side braid is a great style to show off long hair while still keeping your hair off your neck. Whitney Port wears a pretty combo of beach waves gathered into a loose plait. Get the how-tos below:
Step 1: Apply a smoothing cream to your hair and blow dry evenly with a round brush.
Step 2: Make a side part and begin to curl your hair starting at eye-level in 1-inch sections using a medium barrel curling iron. Then brush through to soften.
Step 3: Mist your waves with salt spray like Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Spray, $17.95, and scrunch with your hands for a beachy vibe.
Step 4: Create a loose side braid and secure with an elastic. Then gently pull loose some of the front sections of your hair. Spritz a light hold hairspray to finish.
