Hot Hair Trend: Summer Updos

Various Stars Rock TopKnots

No one likes messing with their hair in the summer. Usually, when it gets too hot, humid or sweaty, we consider a fashionable buzz cut – for about a second. Then we remember how much we love our hair. Well, celebs are inspiring us to do something different and much more chic – a summer updo.

Hilary Duff (above, left) recently rocked a tousled topknot to the iHeartRadio Music Awards. All her hair is swept away from her face, and Hilary looks pretty and polished in the L.A. heat.

Mother of three – Gwen Stefani (above, middle) looks super hot in a messy topknot at the Hakkasan Las Vegas Anniversary Party. This updo is so versatile – you can go straight from home to a club event without doing a single thing.

Supermodel Cara Delevingne (above, right) adds a braid around the crown of her head to spice up her topknot. Her look is slick and works great on second – or even third – day hair.

If you’re looking for a softer summer updo – think easy pony. Kate Bosworth (above, left) adds sophistication to her pony with a slight tease and loose waves for a Kate Spade event.

Amping up the glamour, Zendaya (above, right) opted for a low, side pony at the Radio Disney Music Awards. Strands were wound around the base of the pony for added texture and surprise.

These girls look amazing and effortless. We’re ALL about simple hair looks that can take us from the beach to the bar. Which updo will YOU be trying this summer?
