With summer making its presence felt, we bet you’ve swapped your turtle necks and woolly layers for shorts and floral dresses. This is also the time when many women chop off their long locks in favour of something breezy and low maintenance. But we understand that not everyone prefers going short in the summer; after all, you’ve worked so hard to maintain those luscious locks of yours, and you’re not going to chop them off just like that.

But styling your lovely locks in basic buns and ponytails is not an option either. That’s why we went ahead and rounded up some trendy face-framing updos that’ll make you look oh-so-cute this summer. Check ‘em out…

Bangs look super cute and frame your face like no other but summer may not be the right time to get it. If you still wish to add bangs to your look, use long hair to your advantage and create this faux fringe look. It’s simple, gives an effortless vibe and is the perfect updo for summer. Gather your hair on top of the head in a half-up updo and make sure the ends are separated. Secure with bobby pins.

Got long layers? This side fringe hairstyle with a low bun is the perfect updo for you this summer. Add some drama to your look by parting your hair on the side to switch up your look. This face-framing hairdo will highlight your eyes and cheekbones. Blow-dry your hair on one side and use some hold spray like the Tresemme Compressed Micro Mist Invisible Hold Natural Finish Smooth Hold Level 2 Hair Spray to keep it in place.

If you wish to bring focus to the centre of your face, go for a middle-parted updo and instead of pulling some strands out later, opt for face-framing tendrils. Two tendrils purposefully left out at the front was a major trend in the 90s, and it’s back to give your summer hairdos a refreshing makeover.

Hair accessories are so underrated! Apart from hair ties and hair bands, there are so many other accessories that you can use to keep hair away from the face and add a trendy touch. Add a statement clip to keep your fringe or layers in place and add dimension to your face.
