Most people already have a bucket list for summer they're ready to dive into before Memorial Day hits. Some might dream big, like crashing a pool party at Soho House, or waking up early every morning to snag a mat at outdoor yoga. Others might be looking for something that doesn't require waking up early or getting banned from an exclusive establishment, like washing their hair less or ditching hot tools for good.
With humidity levels at an all time high and your apartment desolate of central air, there's no better time than the summer to go no-heat with your styling routine. That means no flat irons or curling wands, and definitely no blowdryers. Time to get creative, practice your updos, and invest in some trusty oils to get the kind of chic, heat-free styles spotted recently at the Cannes Film Festival.

Pro hack to making your natural texture last more than one day in the heat: Invest in a wide-toothed comb and a strong-hold gel. Separate your hair into a deep side-part, like Cate Blanchett's, pin down the side with less hair, and use the gel to tame flyaways.

There's no relationship as dysfunctional as the one between bangs and humidity. When it's too hot to function, twist your fringe into two simple braids and secure them at the back to let your forehead breathe.

Spend more time drinking rosé, not overthinking your everyday style. Copy Daphne Groeneveld's loose, mermaid braid once and you'll never go back to your one-inch iron again.

Pulling your hair into an updo not only looks like you put in effort when you probably just rolled out of bed, but it also shows off your killer makeup. Add a braid and you're red-carpet, or Memorial Day weekend, ready.

If, like Marion Cotillard, you're letting your roots grow out this summer, opt for a loose style that turns your grown-out dye job into a look of its own. Maintain body from top to bottom with a texture spray before smoothing a leave-in cream to your bleached ends.
