Natural Waves

When it’s hot and humid out, you may as well embrace your natural waves which is why we love this look ad seen on Chrissy Teigen. To get the look, start by spraying  Kerastase Spray À Porter Beach Texturized Spray on damp hair. “Lightly scrunch with a t-shirt covering the hand to avoid hair breakage and extra frizz/friction,” says Mario Russo, owner and lead stylist of Mario Russo in Boston. “Embrace your natural curls or waves and let hair air dry. Finish off with Oribe Superfine Hairspray for UV protection while air drying!”

Classic Topknot

We’re a big fan of topknots for hot summer days, and this look seen on Elizabeth Velasquez is a cinch to pull off. Start with clean or second-day hair and use a hair donut to pull hair back into a high bun. Leave out a few face framing pieces in the front and spray with Kerastase Laque Dentelle.

Accent Braid 

Lauren Conrad’s sweet little accent braid is an easy way to update your summer ‘do. Start with clean hair and blow dry straight using a round brush. For extra shine, apply Frederick Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Crème and run through hair. Take a one-inch section of hair in the front and braid it back. Secure with a bobby pin to finish the look.

Hairband Bun

Sweat-tastic days call for hair that’s off your neck and shoulders, so this hairstyle on Katy Tiz is one to definitely to add to your hot weather hairstyles list. “To keep a textured topknot looking voluminous and fresh all day like Katy Tiz, apply Kerastase Mousse Volumifique before you blow dry your hair,” Russo says. “Pull your hair up and twist it into a ballerina bun, pulling a few pieces out to give it the messy, edgy finish. Use a few bobby pins to secure the bun and add a couple sprays of Oribe Superfine Hairspray to hold the bun in place without making your hair look stiff or greasy.”

Sophisticated Ponytail

We love a good ponytail, and this one seen on Angelina Jolie is sleek and sophisticated. Start by pulling hair back into a pony and wrap a piece of hair around the elastic band to hide it. Use bobby pins for any flyways as needed. To finish, Russo recommends Kerastase Gloss Appeal Spray

Casual Updo

Ashley Benson looked chic yet casual at the Pretty Little Liars 100th episode celebration. We love this purposefully undone look for hot summer days. “Start by parting your hair to either side and pulling your hair back into a low, messy bun, keeping wispy front pieces out as you secure the bun in place,” Russo says. “Once your hair is tied back, we recommend using Bumble and Bumble Holding Spray to maintain the look’s shape and tame strays without letting hair look flat.”

Sleek and Straight

When it’s hot and humid out, there’s no point in trying to add any curl to your hair which makes Selena Gomez’s sleek and straight look a great go-to on super hot days. Apply Kerastase Forme Fatale Voluptuous Blow Dry Gel to towel dried hair. Blow dry straight aiming the nozzle downward. If needed, finish with a flat iron and shine serum like L’Oreal EverStyle Alcohol Free Smooth & Shine Serum.

Sassy Side Braid

Lucy Hale’s cute side braid keeps hair off your neck while looking stylish. “To create a loose, voluminous side braid like Lucy’s, simply part your hair to the side and apply Oribe Volumista mist to the crown of your head to add some volume to your look before teasing,” Russo says. “Braid hair loosely, remembering to not pull the pieces too tight and allowing the front to fall a little. If you want the braid to appear more messy, you can pull it apart once it is secured. To keep your hair looking healthy from top to bottom, apply a replenishing balm such as Kerastase Touche Perfection at the bottom of the braid to eliminate dry ends.”

Half Up ‘Do

The Kardashian girls may be known for over-the-top looks, but this half up half down hairstyle seen on Kourtney Kardashian is simple and totally summer chic. To get the look, blow dry hair straight and then apply Artec Textureline Shine Texture Spray for lightweight shine. Starting at the mid-point of your hair, pull hair up and back into a half ponytail securing with an elastic. Finish with a strong hold hairspray like Chi Enviro 54 Hair Spray.

Sleek Low Bun

Not every day is a hair wash day, which is one of the reasons we love this sleek low bun as seen on Nicole Richie. It’s great for second-day hair and looks super stylish. If your hair is extra oily, spray a bit of Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo at the roots to help soak up excess oil. Pull hair back into a low bun securing with bobby pins. Finish with L’Oreal Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold Hairspray for extra shine and a super strong hold.
