hot weather hairstyles for long hair

Pin It

Layla Asks: Hi Mr.Kate, summer is here and I have super long hair; do you have any tips for how to wear hair in the hot summer?

My Answer:

Hi Layla! Got sweaty hair? Don’t sweat it! Hot weather allows for fun up-dos, braids, and textured styles to carry you through the summer days and into the fall. I usually wear my hair down and crazy but sometimes I can’t deal with it sticking to my neck or in my face so, I throw it up in a messy up do, sock bun or Heidi Doody! Below are some long hair DOs that will keep your tresses tamed and/or off your neck…

  • Head scarves keep hair out of your face and off your neck while also adding color and pattern to your ensemble. I love putting my hair up in a messy ponytail or bun and covering it up with a scarf wrapped as a turban or babushka.  

  • Try a creating the look of a Faux Bob haircut by using a scarf or bobby pins to disguise a low bun.

  • A High Ponytail! Try braiding it, adding a bow or a strip of clip-on colored hair for some more style. Or you can hair chalk the tips for a multi-colored ponytail.

  • Use one or a few barrettes or bobby pins to pull hair back from your face is a quick save when it’s feeling straggly… show off that face!

  • If the summer heat adds frizz to your mane, check out this Beauty Bite with Mr. Kate to help calm the frizz.
