Summertime and the living is easy—that is until you have to fight with the heat and humidity when you're styling your hair. When the temperature is high, the last thing you want to do is spend time doing your hair when sweat and frizz are going to inevitably ruin your look after spending a few minutes out in a heatwave.Instead of fighting with your hair, we've rounded up a set of hairstyles that are not only simple to do, but will also hold up on the hottest of summer days. We turned to the red carpet to round up 25 of the easiest hot-weather celebrity hairstyles you'll want to wear all season long.
PRIYANKA CHOPRA'S SMOOTH LOW PONYTAIL
A low ponytail is a staple hairstyle in any season, but we particularly love how easy but polished it looks even on the most humid days. Wash your hair with a smoothing shampoo and conditioner duo like Pantene Pro-V's Smooth & Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner.
LAUREN CONRAD'S CHUNKY TOP KNOT
"The slightly messy texture of the bun makes it more current," says Kristen Ess, Conrad’s hairstylist. “Let it have its imperfections-it softens the overall look.” To pull-off a similar look, Ess suggests using larger bobby pins-“the smaller ones tend to move around too much”-and finishing with a generous blast of strong hold hairspray. “Focus on smoothing flyaways around the hairline and at the base, but not so much on the bun itself,” she adds.
EMMA ROBERTS'S FASHION PONYTAIL
Marcus Francis gave Roberts this ultra-high ponytail for the red carpet. "There are two things to keep in mind when creating this ponytail," Francis tell us. "First, follow the natural line of your cheekbone when pulling your hair back. And when in doubt, aim higher." Secondly, he suggests tilting your head back as you gather. "It leaves the hair at the nape tight and clean," he says.
ELLE FANNING'S EXPOSED BOBBY PINS
While bobby pins are the silent heroes of many of our best hairstyles, take a cue from Fanning and make the hairpin the focal point of your style. Use one to pin back one side of your hair at the temple and stack a few extras below it.
HILARY DUFF'S SIMPLE TWIST
What better way to dress up a bouncy blowout than this easy look? Just take a small section of hair from your part and twist it back away from your face. If you have time, add a few curls with a curling iron to elevate the look for day or night. Hairstylist Marcus Francis, advises using a large barrel curling iron to create similar ringlets. "Wrap medium-sized sections around the iron, then pin the curls to the side," says Francis. "This will give the style more volume and bounce."
ARIANA GRANDE'S BRAIDED PONYTAIL
If a high ponytail is your go-to hairstyle, upgrade your everyday look by adding a few random one-inch plaits to the base of your pony like Grande did. Once your tail is set, wrap a strand around the hair elastic to conceal it.
BELLA HADID'S SWINGY BOB
Not wavy, but not too blunt, Hadid's bob falls inbetween stick straight and wavy which is what makes it a perfect styling option for humid days. To get the look, Hadid's stylist Jen Atkin prepped the model's hair with Ouai Wave Spray ($26; sephora.com) and Christophe Robin Instant Volumizing Mist
KENDALL JENNER'S HALF UP-HALF DOWN BOB
Whatever length your hair is at, Jenner's half-up half-down look is perfect for those of us that want our strands away from our face, but still want to wear our hair down. Before sectioning off the top part of the model's hair while keeping her center part and pulling it back, hairstylist Jen Atkin prepped Jenner's hair with Ouai's Soft Mousse
JENNIFER LOPEZ'S RETRO PONYTAIL
Use the extra volume frizz gives you to your benefit. A '60s-inspired high pony like the one Lopez wore to the 2017 Met Gala will look more full with all that body. To add more shine to your tail, run a lightweight hair serum like L'Oreal Paris's Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum ($6; target.com) from roots to ends before pulling your strands up.
CARA DELEVINGNE'S SINGLE BRAID
Have a bob that isn't quite long enough to pull back? No problem. Try an edgy single braid like Cara Delevingne. Part your hair to the side and braid the front piece of one side. Finish by securing it with a bobby pin behind your ear.
