The Short(er) Hairstyles That Will Help You Beat The Heat This Summer

Did you get the memo yet? Summer is here and plans to stay, at least for a while. That's not to say that the occasional drizzle doesn't bring any respite, but it also leads up to a mix of hot, humid weather that has more impact on your precious strands than you could imagine.

All in all, it's time to take your mane issues into account. As we sat searching for the aptest solutions on the horizon, there was one that stood out for what can best be described as the in-between weather—short(er) hairstyles (and haircuts) that are equal parts striking and comfortable to carry. Are you ready to go short? Take a look.

When Irina Shayak wore her hair in a sleek bob on the Oscar red carpet, we were obviously mesmerised. Smart and easy to carry, the low-maintenance hairstyle is a definite hit, especially in the humidity. If a visit to the salon is on the cards, you may want to screenshot this right away.

Without a doubt, the pixie has been the reigning haircut of summer for a long time now. And while sleek versions have been doing rounds on our Instagram feeds for a while, the new iteration is what everyone is obsessed with. Care for a straight-out-of-bed look with your pixie hairstyle? You might want to look at Emilia Clarke for the much-needed inspiration.

Not a fan of supremely short hairstyles? No problem! Give your mane a slight snip and go the medium route with, you guessed it, a long blunt à la Brie Larson. Depending on the texture of your hair, you can go from good old poker straight to soft beachy waves.

Those with naturally wavy hair may rejoice, for we have the perfect summer hairstyle for you. Overgrown, 'devil-may-care' (think Selena Gomez style) waves are all the rage right now. So if you're looking for an unkempt yet chic look, this is right up your alley.

No matter how short the length of your hair, summer's relentless heat can get to it and make it appear frizzy and under-nourished. The ultimate solution? Tie your hair in a low ponytail, giving the lower ends a curly upgrade whilst keeping the upper half polished.

Looking for a hairstyle that'll allow you to get out of the house in five minutes? Take a leaf out of Sonam Kapoor's lookbook and try your hand at the striking top knot, a hairstyle that takes hardly any time and keeps you sane in the summer heat. 

Soft Bangs

Last but not least is the distinct look that will always remain in vogue. Whether you wish to channel Zooey Deschanel's New Girl vibe or Reese Witherspoon's fringe circa 2007, the answer is always the same—bangs. Opt for soft, barely-there ones like Alison Brie or go all out with a classic version.
