Hair. We all love our hair. But long hair is both a blessing and a curse in the summer. It is a blessing because everyone wants those long, luscious locks, but it is a curse because it is so freaking hot. There are two options — a cute updo, or chop it off. The latter may seem extreme, but lobs are in now, and the summer is the perfect time to try it. If this is too drastic for you go for a simple updo. I prefer a simple French braid, but the classic ponytail is always an option. A messy bun is cute and chic, and so are side braids. There are so many options for how to keep your hair up, and keep yourself cool. If you want a more interesting look, start a French braid at your hairline and braid back to the top back of your head. Stop and finish with a high pony.
