Keep your hair up and out of the way all summer long.

1. You can work with your warm weather texture.

Whether you’re hitting the beach and enjoying the texturizing effects of salt water on your strands or you’re just prone to a bit of a curl in the humid weather, summer is a great time to try longer strands. Your warm weather texture will make for an impressive man bun every time. If you’re looking for some texture and can’t make it to the beach, try Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Salt Spritz Texture Spray. This beachy and summery hair product will give your hair loads of texture. Your wavy strands will serve as the perfect base for your man bun.

2. You can keep your hair up and out of your face.

While we’re all about a short and neat style for summer, there’s a certain amount of ease that comes with a longer style. When the really warm weather hits you’ll be happy to have that man bun option. Consider misting your finished man bun with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 so you don’t have to bother redoing your style throughout the day.

3. You can get creative.

Longer hair is a lot easier to experiment with and when it comes to man buns the options are seemingly endless. Try a man bun fade, consider growing a beard, or consider a half man bun!
