Best hairstyles for dry weather

The best thing to do when the weather is dry is to unplug those hot tools. Don’t even try to straighten or curl your hair. Instead, mist your hair with sun-protectant spray (try Frederic Fekkai Summer Hair Sunshine Shield Spray, $12.99) and let it dry naturally.

“When it’s dry and scorching out, a ponytail or high bun is another good option,” says NYC-based hairstylist Danielle Irene. Start with your natural texture and brush all of your hair up and away from your face, like Jessica Szohr does here. If you really want to leave your hair down, “try clipping hair into loops when damp and letting it dry in the sun” for soft waves like Ashley Tisdale’s, says hairstylist Kevin Ryan from Rsession Tools.
