Soaring temperatures are a major hurdle for achieving good hair. Jaipur heat tends to spoil any hairdo we spend thousands on at the priciest parlours. Beautifully styled bangs get sweaty and stick to the forehead, hair poofs up thanks to humidity, snowfall of dandruff graces our shoulder. All signs point to the weather working against you. Here are some of our favourite hairstyles for summer catering to all hair lengths that will help you withstand the heat.
Let’s admit it none of us have time for perfectly curled glossy hair in this heat. Curls tend to fall out and hair falls flat in these temperatures.
A quick fix is to section your hair in two and tie into braids. Sleep overnight and remove braids in the morning. Voila! Sexy and effortless waves!

A simple braid looks posh and elegant enough to wear to any event. The style takes no more than five minutes and a kindergartner’s skill level.
Brush and gather hair. Divide hair into three sections. Divide the ponytail into three equal parts, making sure each section is smooth. Weave hair into the middle and secure with hair band.
One of the most basic of hair updos, the messy ponytail is a no-fuss look that can be sported for almost any occasion. This style is also a perfect match with any outfit.
Messy ponytails are best done on a day’s old hair so as to have better grip. Pull your hair up and gather it at the crown of the head. Fasten it into a high ponytail. Take a 1-inch section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the base of the pony to hide the elastic. Playing with this style only gives it more of the mess you want, so feel free to twirl, scrunch, and massage your tresses all day!
Optional: Spray on some hair spray to add more volume.
Messy Top Bun
Uber chic and effortless, the messy bun is most often the go-to running late hairstyle. This hairstyle is also quick fix if you’re having a bad hair day. You can accessorize it with a headband for that added oomph.
Brush all your hair back. Tease the top of the crown with the teasing brush. Gather all your hair at the back of your head and start twisting the length of your tresses. Loop the hair through a hair elastic. Spread the bun out and secure with pins. Pull out a few face-framing strands for a casual look.
Optional: Finish with a light-hold hairspray.
