There’s almost nothing worse than curling or straightening your hair only to end up with a) seriously severe neck sweat and b) your style ruined by the heat and humidity.
The solution? A cute updo that’s as stylish as it is functional.
Here a few of our fave celeb ‘dos – including easy styles for long hair and chic hairstyles for short hair.
The messy nape bun
The more haphazard the better! Perfect for those with shorter locks, gather your hair into a bun at the nape of your neck, twist into a bun and secure with some bobby pins.
The glam top knot
The ballerina bun
The key to nailing this is ensuring your hair is completely frizz-free and you don’t get any bits sprouting from the bun. Read: hairspray and bobby pins. And if your hair is too short to twist into a bun, you can always fake it and wrap what you have around a foam bun styler.
The classic ponytail
The dishevelled ponytail
The pretty ponytail
The fishtail braid
The short-hair braid
The braid-and-bun combo
Either braid a section of your hair from your parting down to the base and gather all of your hair into a bun, or create a plait and twist it into a bun and secure for a style that seems way more complicated than it looks!
