The warmest days usually peak during August. While everyone is looking for the latest hair trends, most people are in search of a no-fuss approach when it comes to styling hair during toasty end-of-summer days. The dog days of summer wreak havoc on the hair with sun damage, notoriously bad-for-your-hair heating irons, and one too many blowouts. By the end of August, your hair is thirsty for moisturizer, conditioning and a sabbatical from products, processing and heat. Even professionals recommend taking a minimalist path. If you want to restore your hair to softer, au natural locks and still look cute, look no further than our fearless style ambassadors for low-maintenance looks.

1. The Textured Ponytail

The Textured High Ponytail

The textured ponytail is a staple when your hair already has body and volume from the previous day’s style. If your hair is naturally wavy and textured, this style will be a cinch.

How to style:

  • Use a pick or comb to loosely pull your hair into a high ponytail
  • Draw out strands of hair using a pick
  • If your hair is oily, use dry shampoo to soak up the oil

The Textured Low Ponytail

The textured low ponytail is like the sleeker version of the high pointy tail. Plus, you might have a better chance at avoiding breakage. Adding texture to a low ponytail gives it a playful aesthetic, not taking itself too seriously.

How to style:

  • Tie hair loosely right above the nape
  • Using a pick or teasing comb to gently tease the hair to add volume
  • Use a holding spray for a long-lasting look

2. The Topknot

Take the classically demure bun and jazz it up with a topknot. This is an ambassador favorite because the topknot can be surprisingly versatile, achieved with a wet look, sleek look, textured hair or dry look, guaranteed to be easy to pull off.

How to style:

  • Swoop hair up and tie in a knot or style in a teased bun
  • Frame face with loose and wavy strands
  • Wear with bangs or pulled back to show off a fresh face

3.The Low Loop

The low loop is fairly easy to create, and as it turns out, it can be an elegant solution to an evening out.

How to style:

  • Use a shine oil mist before and after styling for a lustrous finish
  • Tie hair above the nape and loosely wrap the hair around the band while pinning hair with bobby pins
  • Make the loop look more interesting with volume

4.The Box Braids with Top Knot

Box Braids take more time and commitment to create but they’re worth the effort. Although box braids have made a comeback and were popular in the 90s, the history of these beautifully braided tresses dates back to 3500 BC.

How to style:

  • Wear half up and half down
  • Style in a high ponytail
  • Let your hair down and enjoy your braids for a few months

5. Half Up/Half Down

Avoid heat and wear naturally dried and loose for a more youthful and effortless style.

  • Perfect for showing off a neckline while still letting your hair down
  • Wear with curls, waves or iron-flat styled hair

6. Loose Waves

Sultry loose waves may look effortless, but it takes a bit of time to create. Use a curling iron to create frizz-free waves.

How to style:

  • Spiral
  • Volumized loose curls
  • Beachy waves

7. Braided Ponytail

  • Side-braided ponytail
  • Ladder-braided ponytail
  • Fishtail-braided ponytail
