Beat the heat and look cute, too!

The urge to just grab a handful of hair and twist it into what hopefully resembles a bun gets more real whenever summer rolls around. As the temperature rises, our desire to join #TeamShortHair also escalates. On the other hand, many long-haired folks just opt to go for the more temporary route of donning updos.

Apart from it being a fuss-free way to keep your locks from sticking to your skin on a hot summer day, it also lets you keep the length if you're not ready to let go of it just yet. Not to mention, there are a variety of ways to get creative with an updo! If you're looking for pegs, it's always a safe bet to look to the stars for some inspo.

Here are 9 few celeb-inspired updos to try for summer:

1. Low ponytail with face-framing tendrils

Nothing quite like a messy updo like Barbie Imperial's to bring out laid-back vibes. Add face-framing tendrils for more dimension.

If you don't want to commit to a full-on updo, Sue Ramirez's half-up ponytail might be just be the chicest option to keep enough volume away from your face and neck area.
