Beat-the-Heat Summer Hairstyles
 
I'm crazy about summer. Nothing beats poolside lounging, watermelon slices, sundresses and endless nights. Unfortunately, my hair does not feel the same way -- even though I love the feeling of sand in my toes, sun on my face (with sunscreen!) and saltwater on my skin, my hair does not appreciate mixing with all of the elements. It stubbornly refuses to be anything besides a big, frizzy, hot mess.

While everything else goes swimmingly in the summer, maintaining cute hair when you're outside sweating isn't so easy. That's why we talked to top celebrity hairstylists for their best ideas on the summer hairstyles that'll get you through all your outdoor escapades.

It is possible to keep hair breezy, natural and ... slightly ... tamed even while the temperature and humidity rises. The key is embracing, not fighting, your summer hair's texture. These hairstyles will stay out of your sweaty (oh, we mean glowing) face and make you feel cooler than ever.

Another secret to maintaining the perfect summer styles is cranking up your hair care. Vince Smith of the eponymously named salon in New York City (he's styled models for shows at New York's Fashion Week) shares some of his conditioning tips:

· Wear SPF protection in your hair before going out in the sun. Try a leave-in spray.
· Apply a leave-in conditioner before going swimming in the pool. It'll help prevent chlorine from absorbing into the hair.
· Use an after-sun hair masque if you've been soaking in the sun for more than an hour. It'll help repair any damage.

Various celebrity hairstylists including Adir Abergel, Jeffrey Martinez, and Kara Silverman, to name a few, walked us through exactly how they gave these celebrities their red-carpet dos and how to do other trendy styles seen on: Kristen Stewart, Kerry Washington, Bar Refaeli, Rosario Dawson, Reese Witherspoon, Rachel McAdams, Gwen Stefani, January Jones, Zoe Saldana and Whitney Port.
