15 Practical But Cute Summer Hairstyles To Wear When You’re Sweaty AF

Getting your hair to look cute and presentable in the summer can be extremely difficult. This is a struggle that speaks to me on a spiritual level – I have naturally wavy/curly hair that does whatever it wants the second humidity hits, and I live on Long Island where it is both hot, humid, and full of salty seawater that does… uh, interesting things to my strands. Add to this the feeling of being sweaty AF, and I’m left with a mop of hair that often looks less than great. Since I can’t just leave it down like I usually do, I’m left trying to figure out hairstyles that are practical, but still look cute. 

This, of course, mostly just leads to the usual suspects: a boring ponytail or a messy bun. These are fine, it’s just that sometimes I like to switch it up – and I’m sure you do too. There are options, though, and they’re all over Pinterest. I did the work for you, and found some summer hairstyles that are ideal for the days you’re so sweaty you can’t even think about letting one lock of hair fall onto your neck. Check out these hairstyles to wear when you’re sweaty. They’ll keep you cool, they won’t turn into a frizz ball as soon as you step outside, and they aren’t too hard to accomplish on your own.
