Weather Forecast: Sunny
Hair Problem: Sunburn
We all know to apply a heavy dose of SPF on our face, arms, and legs before hitting up the sun (right?), but there's one spot we bet you forget all the time, too: your scalp. It's in plain sight for the sun's rays, so unless you're wearing a giant hat all day, every day, you'll need a hairstyle that can protect your part.
The fix is actually kind of a no-brainer — just don't part your hair. Pair slicked-back strands with a braid that only goes 'til the middle of your shaft to keep ends looking healthy, and you've got a no-fail look for sunny days ahead.

Start with wet hair for easier manageability, and slick back your hair from the roots all the way to the ends with a fine-tooth comb, suggests Campbell.
Make sure you don't expose any part of your scalp — no part, no sunburn!
Then, split your hair into three sections for your braid — one on the left, one on the right, and one in the middle.
