Temperatures are about to turn up, but we don’t turn down our ‘dos for nothing. Harsh sun rays and icky sweat? Boy, bye. We tapped Dani Faraj, hair pro and director of Beverly Hills’ Brighton Salon, for the easiest summer-proof hairstyles and his surefire trick to pulling them off. Keep reading now to see what they are.
1. WET IT
If you just can’t even with frizz, this is your go-to. Take it from It-girls Vanessa Hudgens and Kate Beckinsale who pull the sleek look off like pros. Dani says to tuck your hair behind your ears and away from your face to highlight your best features.
2. TWISTED LOW BUN
One (minute) and done. Tie your locks into a low ponytail then wrap the length of it around the elastic. Secure with bobby pins, and make it shine with a drop of hair serum.
3. BACK IT UP
Whether it’s a high or low pony, let’s not forget how chic this ‘do is. Stay cool for the summer by keeping hair out of your face and off your neck.
4. THROW IT IN A BRAID(S)
Braids are easy, lock in moisture and don’t call for styling tools. Need we say more?
THE TRICK: Braid your wet hair after applying a leave-in conditioner
The unwashed hair hero style, but better. Gather your second (or three, four, five—we ain’t judging) day hair into a ponytail and wrap your hair around the base. Tuck it under the hair elastic. Adorn with hair jewelry and bam.
