Put your wigs and weaves aside

It’s been really hot all over the country lately and we must obey the weather.

That’s right, it’s sundresses, skirts and light fabrics season. When it comes to hairstyles, ladies, keep those weaves and wigs for colder months or perhaps night time. Walking around with a wig or even a weave in this heat is torturing yourself. You should allow your scalp to breathe, by wearing hot weather friendly hairstyles, and also for your own comfort. Here are some celebrity-inspired hairstyles to rock instead as we wait for the temperatures to go down.

1. Cornrows.

Cornrows and braids are simply effortless.


2. Faux locs.

Amina Abdi is rocking the hell out of these faux locs. A style steal perhaps? Tie them into a bun or half top knot bun when it gets too hot.

3. Boxer braids.


This is a temporary style for about two weeks or so. It’s however quite a chic style especially if you’re planning on going for a short weekend vacation somewhere tropical.

4. Twist outs.

Just let your hair be…make twists outs or bantu knots at night then style your hair in the morning.


5. A ponytail.

Nothing as great as having open hair in this weather. Feel free to add a faux ponytail to spruce up the look.
