1. Natural weaves
It sounds like an oxymoron doesn't it? With the number of natural-haired women on the rise, it is no wonder that afro weaves are growing in popularity. Whether your hair is kinky, coily, curly or wavy, try a natural hair weave as a protective style this summer. Your scalp will be happy you did.
2. Beach Waves
Maintaining a flat ironed or blown out style can be rough when it's humid out. Instead, opt for soft beach waves. They're simple, easy to create and care-free. Plus you won't have to keep putting your hot tools in your hair.
3. Twisted Bun
Twisted buns make life easier in the summer. They take your hair off your back and, best of all, frame your face. Standard buns in general can look a bit librarian-esque at times, so this is definitely a cute alternative.
Cornrows take us way back to a simpler time. Queen Bey is never afraid to do it old-school with her vintage braided looks. Head to your local African braiders (or heck, your mom's house) and put some braids in your hair. You can even get designs if you're feeling daring.
