The Only 4 Hairstyles You Need This Summer

Photographed by Winnie Au at the Catalina Beach Club.
Summer is all fun and sun until you realize you’ve got a sunburned scalp and fried ends. Or, you end up with damp, limp strands because you didn't check the weather. Yes, just because it's crop-top season doesn't mean Mother Nature's gonna play nice with the forecast. That's why we're planning our hair game now for every weather situation she'll throw at us.

To help with our prep, we enlisted hairstyling guru Anthony Campbell for styles that'll hold their own in the face of heat, humidity, rain, and the sun's damaging UV rays. Best of all, they're super easy to recreate, requiring nothing more than a few hair pins, elastics, and Pantene essentials. From a goof-proof pony that'll keep your hair off your neck to a part-less braid that prevents scalp sunburn, these looks will ensure summer doesn't destroy your hair. Mother Nature? Bring it.
