Humidity and sweltering temps can cause real havoc on your hair (just ask Monica from Friends), making even the simplest of hairstyles a pain to deal with—and more extravagant updos near impossible. But rather than letting frizz ruin your summer, opt for a hairstyle that tames your tresses while still elevating your look.
1. The Ponytail
A simple ponytail is a versatile option: not only does it control your hair during workouts, it can also be dressed up for weddings and special occasions with just a few choice accessories
. Try styling it sleek and straight, with a strand wrapped around the hairband and secured with a bobby pin for a polished look.

2. The Pull-Through Braid
Not all braids are summer friendly; they can loosen or fall apart during the day, leaving you with a curly, frizzy mess. But the pull-through braid is secured throughout, which helps it to stay put for hours. Follow this tutorial

3. The Messy Bun
The best part about the messy bun is that there's no way to mess it up. Loose strands that fall around your face will only soften this look and add to its charm. It's the perfect option for keeping your hair up and off your shoulders on a hot day.
