For warm weather, bobs and lobs are breezy and cool, but when the weather gets hot the only acceptable style is one that keeps hair completely away from your sweaty face and neck. For haircuts barely long enough to reach into a ponytail, this can be a challenge. After scouring the internet, I’ve curated the best solutions. You can have your bob and wear an updo too. –– Laura Martin

Create this French twist by combing all hair to one side, making a line of pins up the center back, and folding ends over to pins to create a pleat.

This messy bun is made by backcombing hair first, then winding to create the illusion of more volume in the bun.
