Your A/C is on full blast or maybe your fan is turned to the maximum level — either way, your hair just won’t cooperate. The last thing you need this summer is to have a hot tool next to your face, so what’s a GenGirl to do? Not to worry, we’re here with three easy hairdos that are no fuss, no muss, and no heat required.
Beach Waves: This hairstyle is pretty synonymous with summer.
Whether or not you’re actually spending your days by the ocean, you can pretend like you did!
1 – Part hair when damp and mist generously with a sea-salt spray.
2 – Twist sections of hair and secure with bobby pins.
3 – Remove pins when hair is dry and use fingers to loosen waves.
Pigtails: If you think these rad braids are just for kids, you’re missing out.
Not only are they chic, they’re great for keeping your hair out of your face on a hot day.
1 – Divide hair into as many sections as you’d like braids.
2 – Use a clip to secure any sections you’re not currently working on.
3 – Follow the french braiding method for each sections.
4 – Tie each finished braid with a hairband.
Reverse French Updo: This is a look that not only looks cool, but will keep you cool as well.
1 – Flip your head upside down.
2 – Start french braiding, but start at the nape of your neck and move towards the top of your head.
3 – Secure as a bun or ponytail on your head.
