2 Insanely Perfect Styles For Long Hair

Sure, pixies and bobs may be having a moment in the sun, but that doesn't mean mermaid-length hairstyles should be overlooked — especially when those sweltering rays really start to beat down. Rapunzel-esque strands have the potential to trap in body heat and cling to sweaty necks, so it's crucial to have some easy, gorgeous ways to get all that length up and away.
And, since those hot, humid days are fast approaching, we turned to hairstylist Reagan Baker of Whittemore House Salon to come up with a few DIYs that will work with the weather — not against it. First, we're bringing you a ponytail with one major guideline: The more flyaways, the better. (Yes, really.) Or, feeling princess-y? We've got a pretty braided bun fit for a royal. Straight ahead, everything you need to enter the season looking gorgeous and keeping cool.
