When the weather gets hot and humid, you're more than ready to bust out the two-piece and tanning oil and hit the beach. Hey, a girl's got to get her tan on. But what about your hair? Evey girl knows that no look is complete without the right hairstyle, and when the weather's humid, the last thing you want is your hot, sweaty hair sticking all over your neck. Get the right cut to get off to the right start.
Let's face it, a pixie cut is the shortest cut you can get without going full-on military style. The cut is typically longer and layered on top, with shorter sides and a tapered back. It's a super sweet, chic style that frames your face, and this no-fuss style is literally wash and wear. No matter what your hair texture, you can literally work a bit of pomade through your hair while it's damp and let it air-dry.
An angled bob gets the hair off the most important place on your body when the temperature starts to rise — your neck. The back is shorter, hitting just below the nape of your neck, angling down on the sides so the longer pieces are at the front. You can style your hair to the side or down the center, and the light, bouncy style is definitely nice for hot, humid weather.
A shoulder-length cut — get it with layers or blunt, cut straight across — is short enough that your hair isn't getting all over the place and making you feel like you're wearing a 10-pound parka, but still long enough you can put it up. To really cool off in the humid weather, go for a swept-up style by pulling back the top section from ear to ear and clipping it in place at the crown of your head.
You don't have to crop all of your hair off just because it's humid as heck outside. Getting your locks cut into longer layers leaves you with a lot of length to play with so you can create lots of different styles. It's also long enough for you to easily throw it up into a ponytail, bun or other updo style when the mercury rises.
