Beat The Heat

With the weather being down right steamy in most parts of the country, it can get kind of tricky to keep summer hair cute and polished. My go-to look for beating summer heat is some version of the all-traditional bun.
...Zoe's classic look is always a tried and true winner...

...The newest version though, the top knot, is probably my fav...
(So cute!)

...Of course, "messy" always works well too
(especially when smothered in humidity)...

Recently though, I came across this pic of Christina Milian looking so bright, colorful and cheery. This low bun at the nape of her neck with the side-swept bang has been my personal go-to look forever.

I couldn't help but notice the similarity to the hairstyle in one of my head shots (seen above).

Then I couldn't help but notice the beautiful cover of Essence magazine's September issue. Naomi, Liya and The Legendary Iman are always stunners, but Iman just happens to be donning my go-to look as well. I must say it feels good to be in such great company! Tell me, what's your favorite go-to summer style?
