Beat the heat this season with runway-worthy hair that’s full of style and free of frizz. There’s nothing wrong with a get-up-and-go messy bun to get you through the warm months, but don’t let the hot weather limit you to just one look—summertime hairstyles that work with sweaty days and humid nights come in all shapes and sizes. Here are three of our favorites.
The side braid
Go to the beach, the bar, or anywhere else this summer with a pretty, pulled-apart side braid. There’s a reason this style is a classic: It’s functional, fashionable, and able to withstand humidity without losing its beauty. To get the look, apply Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Weather Proof Cream to damp hair to help it stay sleek, shiny, and frizz-free for up to 72 hours. Next, rough-dry your hair and create a side part. Begin blow-drying in the direction of your part. Once hair is dry, divide it into three sections and tease each for extra texture. Braid the sections together, pinning any fallen strands in the back. Allow your hair to look a bit disheveled around your face—that’s precisely what gives this style its effortlessly cool summer vibe. Spray with Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Spray, an ultrafine mist that lets your hair be flexible but also frizz resistant, for the final touch.
The half-up topknot
Add an edge to your look via a small bun on top of your head. It's a super-trendy hairstyle at the moment, but it happens to be darn convenient, too. The half-up topknot keeps your strands out of your face, can be styled either polished or messy, and works with almost every hair length. For an undone look, just throw your hair up after a day out. For something more pulled together straight out of the shower, start with Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil. Dispense two or three pumps' worth into your palms and rub your hands together. Apply it evenly through, from mid-shaft to ends. The ultralight formula instantly conditions hair without weighing it down, adding silky shine in the process. Next, blow-dry your hair away from your face with the help of a flat paddle brush. Once it's dry, section the front portion of your hair from ear to ear, pull it onto the top of your head, and tie it with an elastic. Then twist the hair into a bun and secure it with bobby pins. Spray all over, focusing on the top portion, with Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Spray for frizz-free hold.
The undone-waves effect
What better way to celebrate summer than with straight-from-the-beach hair. Even if you don't actually spend the season seaside, this is an easy look to get with the help of a few of our favorite products. The best part of the undone-waves look is, well, it's undone! That means you can leave it a bit messy, so start by rough-drying freshly washed hair. Make a center part, and then spray Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray onto your damp strands from root to tip to create all-over body and texture that lasts for up to 24 hours. Using a diffuser, blow-dry your hair from underneath to pump up the volume. Once your hair is dry, amp it up even more with Suave Professionals Natural Infusion Seaweed All Day Body Leave-In Foam. Use one pump's worth to tame flyaways before you spray all over with Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Spray.
