Obviously on a hot summer day the last thing you want is your hair to stick to your skin as you're sweating. So, the best thing is to focus on up hairstyles and fortunately variety is not an issue. Chic updos are quite easy to style, but if you're really looking for low maintenance updo hairstyles, the polished bun, a messy low updo or a chic ballerina bun are the hairstyles for you.

Although polished buns look super professional, with the help of a hair doughnut or a sock you'll be able to style this sleek updo with minimum effort. Ballerina buns can be styled easily with the help of a hair elastic and some bobby pins, so experiment with the texture and the angle of the bun and you'll look amazing.

Hot hair is all about texture this summer! Forget about sleek straight hairstyles as this year wavy and curly hairstyles are on everyone's mind. To look fab without looking like you've tried too much opt for curly styles or beach waves hair which you can easily achieve with a bit of salt spray. If you're looking to go towards something a little bit more glamorous, vintage waves or loose curls are a great match, but styling can be a bit tricky unless you have the proper tools to work your hair to perfection.

Hair Accessory Hairstyles

If you want to add a bit of style to your locks, hair accessories are the answer to your problem. Bandanas wrapped around the hair for a retro look or a pin-up style, hair clips and headbands can do wonders for your hair if you've styled it right. Keep in mind that a hair accessory only looks amazing when the hair is styled properly, so be sure to pay attention to both details if you want to look enviable.
