Does this sound like you: The temperature soars a single degree past 70 and your locks start to swell. And puff. And pouf. And suddenly, it feels like you're spending more time fighting the great fuzzy follicle war than actually enjoying your summer.
Straight, wavy, or curly, no coiff is buddy-buddy with frizz, and for good reason. That shiz straight up screws with your strands. Thankfully, there are ways to work with your natural texture to combat frizz and keep your cool in the summer heat. We asked Matt Fugate, a stylist at the Sally Hershberger Downtown salon in NYC, to show us how to create two hot hairstyles that actually work with the heat and humidity. Best of all, they’re beyond easy to do yourself — all you need are a few bobby pins, an elastic, and an out-of-control mane. Let’s get to it!
