The urge to just grab a handful of hair and twist it into what hopefully resembles a bun gets realer whenever summer rolls around, even though it probably isn’t a pretty sight to look at (nor is it a healthy habit to keep for the sake of our tresses). As the temperature rises, our desire to join #TeamShortHair also escalates. On the other hand, many long-haired folks just opt to go for the more temporary route of donning updos.

Apart from it being a fuss-free way to keep your locks from sticking to your skin on a hot summer day, it also lets you keep the length if you’re not ready to let go of it just yet. Not to mention, there are a variety of ways to get creative with an updo! If you’re looking for pegs, it’s always a safe bet to look to the stars for some inspo.
