No Sweat Summer Hairstyles

Wearing your hair down and in your face just makes you feel even hotter when temperatures are soaring in the summer months! Sweaty and red-faced is definitely not the look you’re going for! Luckily we’re not just stuck with putting our hairup in a ponytail everyday - there are some adorable summer hairstyles that are easy and will leave you sweat-free and ready for summer fun! Messy side braids, ballerina buns, perky ponytails and easy updos - you might not even want to wear your hair down when it cools down!


The Poufy Ponytail

There is a slight twist to this ponytail to make it look both poufy and perky!

  • 1. After washing your hair, blowdry it with a round brush and use volumizing mousse to give your hair texture.
  • 2. Gather your hair in a high ponytail but leave about 2-3 inches of the top section of your hair loose.
  • 3. Back comb the top section and pin it back so it blends in with the ponytail. Use a clear snag-free elastic.
  • 4. Pull a section of the bottom of your hair out and wrap it around the elastic. Pin hair underneath the ponytail.
  • 5. Spray texture or beach wave spray on your ponytail to give it even more bounce.

Ballerina Bun

There’s a reason why ballerinas put their hair in such a high and tight bun on top of their head! Not only does it keep your hair out of your face, it looks great!

  • 1. This style works best on hair that isn’t freshly washed. Clean hair is slippery and doesn’t hold the bun as well. If you must wash your hair, spray texturing spray or mousse all over your hair and then blowdry upside down to get the same hair texture.
  • 2. Gather all hair into a high ponytail and secure with a snag-free elastic the same color as your hair.
  • 3. Twist the hair around your elastic band into a high bun. Use pins to hold it into place.
  • 4. Put on a thin to medium width headband.

Double French Braid

Don’t be fooled by how difficult this hairstyle works. It couldn’t be easier and it’s a very chic way to keep your hair off your face and neck in the heat.

  • 1. Parting your hair in the centre, divide your hair into three parts.
  • 2. Twist the middle part back into a chignon (a bun) and pin.
  • 3. Loosely do 2 french braid on the two side sections and then wrap the ends around the middle bun and pin. Voila! We told ya it was easier than it looks!

Triple Knot Bun

This is another hairstyle that looks complicated but is so easy and quick to pull off!

  • 3. Pull out some pieces to make it a look a bit messy and spray with hairspray to set.

I've always felt the same way. My one best friend gossiped behind my back, used me, all that girl stuff. She took me for advantage and we had a bunch of fights because of her finding a new friend and completely acting as if I didn't exist, and I told her to give me at least some attention every once in a while if she can't even continue to talk to me daily. And.. I lost her. Well, she lost me. We both lost each other. But then I realized.. it's the people that you least expect to be nice to you you'll find kindness in. Why? Based on personal experience, and I'll tell you the story: For my gym class, me and my peers were supposed to make a group for a dance. This was when my best friend had found a new friend already, and the time at which we had a few fights because of that. Of course, I relied on my best friend to count me in her dance group. At lunchtime, I sat together with my best friend, and we ate our lunches in silence. All of a sudden, I brought up the dance groups and asked her straightforwardly: "Can I join your group?" No reply. "Kelly, can I join your group?" No reply. "I mean, since our class is uneven, I found it fair that there'd be a group of five, you know?" None at all. Kelly ignored me straight off the bat, leaving me speechless. My mind raced with thoughts, and I thought, maybe it's not worth having Kelly as a friend. A few days later, we were playing Dodgeball for gym. I was on Kelly's team, and overheard her talking with her new friends about who to pick for the dance group. One of her friends mentioned me, and Kelly said: "Oh no, we shouldn't pick her because _____ (I don't know what she said then)." I was shocked, but was anticipating it, so when the time came to choose groups, I saw my friend, Luke, ask two girls, Cher and Bridgette, to join their group. Surprisingly, Cher and Bridgette actually accepted him, and so I thought, "Wow, if they accepted Luke, they might accept me aswell!" and so built up the courage to ask them if I could join. Even though Cher and Bridgette were mean to me sometimes, I knew that I had to risk it and see what'd happen. Afterall, rejection is just another opportunity to find a better group. Little did I know, it'd be the best choice of my life. They were so happy, and even thanked me for joining them! I was speechless once more; I never knew that the peers that I thought I would never be friends with would actually be my friends!  So yeah, that's what I learnt, and I never regretted learning that fact. Ever since then, though, I've learnt not to trust people as much as I used to anymore. I learnt that independency is what works for me, what I was meant for in terms of socializing or working. But, other things may work for you. If you still want a friend, you can be independent and wait for the right person. However, if you still want a real friend, you can wait, but still mingle (hang out) with other people! I I'm not going to make fun of you because I know how you've felt, just as I stated in my past problem before. But you can move on from those friends, they're not worth your time and certainly don't deserve you as a friend. Trust me, if it's meant to be, you'll definitely find a true friend. But if it's not, you may become like me, finding happiness in my own way. I want to remind you though-- you don't need someone to stay happy, or keep you company. This may sound silly, but you can even have your own invisible friends! I've had one, but that's very rarely for me. It's not silly though if you see the general idea; usually these friends are made from different dimensions of your personality or just because of will. There's a lot more fish in the sea, though, so I'm sure you'll find a true friend that's meant for you  :) Take care, and I hope you'll find a true friend soon!

i know the feeling. but i got taken off a website instead of my friends. i can assure you they probably feel the same and are missing you, BUT its not worth dwelling over it. friends come and go without any choice in life and trust me, i lost the love of my life and my two of the best friends in the world. The thing is, you have to move on, because they wouldent want you feeling sad over them right? they'd want you to be the happy person you were when you were with them! for starters, i'll be your friend so your not scared to make some new ones. To be honest, i went through the exact same thing as you did and it DOES hurt very bad. But once you find some people that are willing to make you feel better, you know you've chosen the right friends again

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :) Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket. Hoodies are great for winter. And I wear combat boots like doc martins and converse. Hope I helped somehow! :)
