We may already be at the tail-end of summer. But with the heat and humidity in the Philippines, every single day of the year feels like summer. Looking stylish and feeling comfortable at the same time can be challenging, but it is doable. With the following summer updos that you can wear even after the season has ended, you’ll be beating the heat instead of it beating you down!
Look and Feel Fresh With These Summer Updos
1. Messy ponytail
Ponytails are always in no matter the season. To create a laidback summer look, why don’t you put your hair in a messy ponytail? It’s charming and far from boring, especially if you have long, healthy hair to begin with. The key to pulling off this hairstyle is to not overthink it—just tie your hair, loosen a few strands, and you’re all set!
Editor’s tip: Keep your hair soft and dandruff-free by washing it with CLEAR Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. It also has fresh sakura fragrance that can help make your hair smell good even on a hot day.
2. Top knot
A top knot is one of the quickest and easiest hairstyles for hot days. It makes you feel presko without making you compromise style. If you have long, natural curls, a top knot is also the perfect updo if you don’t want to leave your hair down. With curls already adding volume to your hair, you can nail a chic and voluminous top knot in no time.
Editor’s tip: Say goodbye to dry curly hair with Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Color Care Shampoo. It’s not just for color-treated hair. Murumuru Butter deeply moisturizes and nourishes your locks. Because curls are more prone to dryness than other hair types, this eco-friendly shampoo is perfect for you. For best results, follow it up with Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Color Care Conditioner.
3. Baby bun for short hair
Thinking of a casual updo for your bob or lob? Try baby bun for short hair. It’s cute and laidback—perfect for a walk in the park or an afternoon milk tea session. Plus, this ‘do can go with whatever outfit you’re comfortable wearing, may it be your favorite shirt and shorts or a beautiful summer dress.
Editor’s tip: Spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray on your tendrils to make them look relaxed and give them a good shape.
4. Space buns
If you want something fun and different, put your hair in space buns to look unique. It’s not just a hairstyle you can wear at costume parties when you want to portray your favorite galaxy superheroine. You can sport this hairstyle in school when you want to show some personality together with your casual college outfit. Just make those buns nice and tight so they don’t unravel in the middle of the day.
Editor’s tip: Spritz TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray on your buns as a finishing touch to keep them smooth and frizz-free and help them stay in place.
5. High ponytail for medium hair
Aside from the baby bun, a high ponytail is another updo that you can sport when you have shoulder-length hair or a long bob. You can tie your hair either at the center of the back of your head or up high on your crown. And just like the messy ponytail, you don’t need to worry about making this hairstyle perfect.
6. Half up top knot for short hair
If your hair is not long enough to be styled into a top knot, go for the half up top knot. It’s just as chic and practical, and it’s also easy to do. Just tie the upper section of your bob or lob into a half ponytail, twist and create a bun, and secure with bobby pins. Now, you’re ready to face a busy day without strands of hair touching your face.
With these updos, you’ll definitely feel presko even if it’s no longer summer. Now, get your hair ties and bobby pins and start putting your hair up to beat the heat!
