It’s hot here in Manhattan and if you don’t have a sanctuary with AC, here are some great hairstyles to stay cool. Forget about your blow-dryer this week, 1) because it is very hot and 2) you may blow a fuse while your AC is blasting (sounds like a horror movie). Here are some great hairstyles to beat the heat this summer in Manhattan:
- For girls with shoulder-length hair we recommend a low bun. Big top-knots aren’t for everyone, so this is also a great choice.
- Braids have made their comeback this season so go ahead and teach yourself the fishtail braid, French, mermaid, etc. Braid tutorials are easy to follow on YouTube.
- Simple topknots are a more comfortable hairstyle for these summer days than the sock bun. Save the sock buns for cooler days or summer nights – remember that your body releases heat via your head.
- If you have greasy or frizzy hair, a headband scarf is a great go-to look for hot summer days. Stick to lighter colors since dark colors attract the sun.
- Lastly, the infamous ponytail can be your best friend during these hot days. Your ponytail should rest midway down the back of your head, and I also recommend a poof for a sleek look.
