There’s currently a heat advisory in New York City, thanks to record-high temperatures and humidity. So, any kind of heated styling to my hair is out of the question. Here are three easy hairstyles that will help you beat the heat if you’re also experiencing a scalding hot summer:
- Pull hair into a high ponytail, securing with an elastic. I usually flip my head upside down to get it to the top of my head.
- Once secured, wrap the length of the pony tail around in a circular motion and secure with another elastic tie.
- Pull and separate the hair to create the volume and style of the easy knot you’d like, then secure with bobby pins as needed. For extra protection, spray the top knot with an anti-humidity hair spray.
- Start with dampened hair and make a part in the middle or the side (your preference).
- Use a bristle brush or fine comb to mold the hair into a sleek ponytail at the nape of your neck and secure an elastic tie.
- Once secured, take a small section from the ponytail and wrap around the elastic tie as many times until you reach the very end.
- Use a bobby pin secure the end of the small section and hide it underneath the ponytail.
- Start by sectioning hair in half (two pieces) and holding each section.
- Begin to take a small piece of hair from the outside of the left section and cross over the middle to the right section (secure in your right hand).
- Then, take a small piece of hair from the outside of the right section cross across the middle to the left section (secure with the left hand).
- Repeat this process from left to right, alternating sides and crossing small pieces from the outside of each section across the middle.
- Once you reach the end and secure with an elastic tie. Gently pull on sections to enlarge and create a messier look if desired.
