Heat and humidity. The arch nemesis duo to all your summer hair fantasies. Thankfully however, an army of IT-girls have recently offered an alternative to keep you chic in the heat no matter your hair type: braids. If you can’t handle the frizz let Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner’s super glossy inside-out braids be your muse by coating your lengths with a smoothing oil before braiding.

Gigi Hadid’s sleek French-braided ponytail is the ultimate gym-chic option in the warmer months, or for a more laid-back approach look to summer-frizz pioneers, Sara Sampaio and Emily Ratajkowski.

Meanwhile Jennifer Lawrence has inspired a way to take your day braids through to the night – simply release your plaits, spritz your roots with dry shampoo, scrunch some sea salt through the lengths and re-braid the front section and voila, sweat-proof summer hair, sorted. Consider this your warm weather weaving cheat sheet.
