The Fishtail Braid

Braids are the best way to protect your hair from humidity as they keep them intact and in control. Why the fishtail braid, you ask? Because not only does it serve the purpose but it also adds spunk to the classic braid, making it a prettier option.

How to do it
1. Divide your hair into two even sections.
2. Pull a thin strand of hair from outside the left section and pull it over the left section. The hair should finish under the right section.
3. Use thin strands as much as possible for best results.
4. Now, pull a thin strand of hair from the outside of the right section and pull it over the right section and under the left section.
5. Continue on alternate sides until you reach the end. Tie with a rubber band.

The Fringe Braid

Thanks to the sweltering heat, your perfectly done bangs end up curling and looking greasy. Save yourself the horror and opt for the fringe braid which is the best way to keep your bangs from bothering you. You can tie the rest of your hair or leave it open.

How to do it
1. Comb your hair back and clip it up, leaving the bangs free.
2. Start braiding your bangs and pin it up under your hair.

The Braided Updo

Invited to a wedding and afraid your hair is going to ruin your look? We suggest wearing the braided updo. Not as complicated as it looks, the braided updo is classy and elegant, making it perfect for a special occasion.

How to do it
1. Make a centre partition.
2. Create two French braids on both sides of your head and tie the ends with a rubber band.
3. Wrap one of the braids in a low bun. Use pins to secure the bun.
4. Wrap the second braid around the first bun.
5. Tuck the loose ends of your hair neatly. Secure with bobby pins.

The Top Knot

If you’re lazy or have no time to spare on your hair, this hairstyle is for you. Tie a top knot and bid goodbye to your hair woes for the day. They are quick, simple and hassle free—need we say more?

How to do it
1. Gather your hair into the highest ponytail you can make.
2. Don’t pull the hair all the way through the rubber band. You should be left with a little bump on top with some hair left over at the bottom.
3. Take the section of hair that’s free from the rubber band and wrap it around the base of the little loop you created.
4. Wrap it till you reach the end.
5. Pin up the bun to keep it in place.

The Low Chignon

While the top knot is for those who like messy hairstyles, the low chignon is for the ones who like it prim and proper. The loosely tied chignon works wonders even when you’re having a particularly bad hair day.

How to do it
1. Tie a low ponytail.
2. Divide your pony into two unequal parts.
3. Twist the larger section into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
4. Take the smaller section and pull it up loosely over the bun.
5. Secure the middle of that section to the top of the bun, leaving the tail loose.
6. Tie the tail like a bow.
7. Pin the rest of the tail neatly under the bun.

The Chic Turban

However much you love to leave your tresses loose, it’s a good idea to accessorise with head wraps and turbans once in a while. Head wraps are a great way to style your hair and, what’s more, when humidity gets to you they shift focus like nothing else by adding an edgy twist.

How to do it
1. Start by tying a top knot.
2. Fold the scarf into a triangle and keep rolling until its one long piece.
3. Take the scarf on your head and twist the two sides around each other at the same time in front of the top knot.
4. Pull the scarf ends down to the nape of your neck and tie a knot.
5. Tuck the loose ends.
