Keeping your hair off the back of your neck and forehead during those hot summer months is a must, but make sure you do it with style: here are our favorite ways to stay cool this summer without sacrificing your look!

The side barrette

If your forehead is your main area of concern, try a side part and then sweep your bangs over and secure them with a barrette. This preppy-chic look has been all over the runways for Fall-Winter 2016-17 but there's no reason it can't serve you well this summer, too!

Double buns

Looking for a refreshing style and a little swag without losing any length? Choose 90s-inspired double buns. This trendy hairstyle can be worn low at the back, high on the top, or even on the sides like Princess Leia from Star Wars. Best of all? Once you undo the buns, you'll have gorgeous waves throughout your mid-lengths and ends, which are perfect for when that evening summer breeze rolls in.

The pixie cut

If you've ever been tempted to try a cropped cut, this is the ideal moment to take the plunge! Getting rid of plenty of length and weight will leave you feeling lighter and cooler than ever. For the audacious among you, consider trying the feminine version of a shaved head for a just-off-the-runway look with some serious edge.

Braids

When you opt for ultra-trendy boxer braids, cornrows, braided bangs, you keep your hair under control without losing length! Braids have really made a comeback over the last few years so whether you wear them with romantic texture or sleek and modern, you can't go wrong!

The bob

The short bob is this season's it style: so now is the time to give it a go! Whether it's styled straight, wavy or curly, the short bob will leave your neck totally exposed, which is perfect for getting a hit of whatever soft breeze comes your way! Because humidity is at an all-time high during summer, we recommend not pairing this style with bangs.
