With the brutal summer heat here, we definitely need a few ways to get our hair off our face and neck while still looking super chic. So whether you love sporting braids, ponytails or top knots, we’ve got something for you. Check out the easy, breezy summer hairstyles we’ve got you covered with to beat the heat while looking uber stylish.

1. The Half Bun

It’s easy, fuss-free and totally on-point. Plus, your fav celeb is probably sporting it too. Just create a knot/bun with the top half of your hair and let the bottom half free, put on your fav sunnies and go on and take on the day.

2. The Futuristic Ponytail

We couldn’t help but stop and stare at this cool-girl ponytail Jacqueline rocked. Just split your hair into 3 sections – the top, middle and bottom and create a middle parting in the top section. Tie your hair on either side of the parting at the bottom of the top section. Now combine it into 1 ponytail in the middle section, secure with an elastic and tie all your hair into a ponytail in the bottom section. Wrap a thin piece of hair around each elastic and secure with a pin to conceal them. Voila, you’re ready to turn some heads.

3. Spunk On The Side

Sassy, spunky and uber cool is the best way to describe Parineeti’s fun summer hairdo. Create a side part and make a few French braids starting from the front on one side, braided backwards and towards the other side. Pin them under your hair so one side of your hair is pinned and the other side is loose. This style is perfect for rocking some statement earrings too, just like the actress.


4. Say It With Flowers

Nothing screams summer better than colourful flowers. Create 2 braids – 1 on each side - and wrap them into a bun at the back. Or you can make milkmaid braids instead and simply decorate them with pretty flowers. It doesn’t take much time at all and it will help your locks smell amazing. Pair with a summer dress for a flirty style.

5. The Ponytail Braid

We love this super edgy look. Take a section of hair in the middle of your head and start braiding it across and down your head. Continue braiding down the length of your hair right till the end. Now gather the rest of your hair into a ponytail at the nape and pin the braid on top of the elastic to stick it together.

6. Put A Scarf In It

A printed silk scarf is the simplest thing to whip out on a boring hair day for some glam. Wrap your hair in it or tie it on like a hairband to save you from the drama of a bad hair day. No matter how you wear it, your look suddenly has a very high fashion feel.
