Keeping it cool with Goody!

Summer has finally arrived and the southern heat is heading our way! As much as I love this time of year, there are several things that are on my small list of things that bug me about being in the heat. One, sweating and secondly, dealing with my hair. It’s not so much that my hair is unmanageable (sort of), but that it’s so hot and humid that I don’t want to feel my hair getting stuck to me! So, today I am going to share some “beat the heat” hairstyles that I will be rocking all summer. These are actually some common styles, but last all day and stay put due to me using a few hair tools from Goody!


The Top Knot

This is a sure way to keep your hair off of your neck and you from getting hot. A top knot! We all know this style, we wear it year round mostly, but it can be a pain if you have to keep fixing it all day from falling down. Goody has these super cool Simple Styles Spin Pins that will lock your top knot in place ALL DAY! Like, won’t budge at all! It has the power of 20 bobby pins in one. So I just take my Goody Boar Bristle Cushion Brush from their new Wood Collection to smooth everything up and then secure with a Spin Pin.


Double Top Knots

What’s better than one bun? Two mini buns! Like above, just two simple top knots. I part down the middle, brush my hair up, twist them up into a knot and add Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins to secure these puppies in place.


Half-up, Half-down

For days that aren’t as hot and sticky, or tired of rocking updos, I do a simple half-up style. To give this look some extra flair, I use the new Goody Ouchless Elastic Hair Ties. They have so many cute colors or prints on their hair ties to spice up this look!


Braided Bun

Sometimes I like to do different bun styles other than a plain one. So, I’ll opt for a chic low or mid-braided bun. I’ll give myself a side or middle part, secure my pony with an Ouchless Hair Tie, braid it, and then secure with a Spin Pin.


Well, there you have it! Hope you enjoyed my beat the heat summer styles. Which look is your favorite? Have any summer hairstyles you wear to keep you cool? Feel free to share in the comments below!

    Loving these looks on you- the space buns could be my favorite summer hairstyle! And I have an absolute ton of hair, so I live and die by spin pins- I literally can’t do a comfortable topknot without one. Dunno what I did without them!

    I love all the styles that you have created which is perfect for summer! My personal favourite is the double top knot cos it is so fun and adorable! I have never seen the spin pin before and really wonder how it will be used to secure the bun down.

    I wish I could play and have fun with my hair the way you do, but there are only so and so many things I can do to style it. I’d have to say I like the two buns the best and actually that’s a hairstyle I’ve been seeing a lot in street styles during the five fashion weeks I’ve attended during the last month, so keep rocking the two bun look! 🙂

    I love top knots in summer time, looks so chic and effortless. Also that’s the only style I have mastered. Honesty, I cut my hair way shorter for the first time as I was too tired to upkeep them looking stylish and healthy, but they are long enough for a mini bun::) Summer times are the worse, mine gets frizzy. Goody is an amazing hair brand, specially their hair ties. You look gorgeous in all styles.

    So cute! I actually only use Goody brushes and hair accessories on my girls – they really last forever! My daughter rocks to double bun all the time LOL. I need to grow my hair out so I can start putting it up again. This heat is a killer!

    Great post! Love it! All the hairstyles you’re sharing here are great and so perfect to rock the season and its warm weather. Goody has such a great items for the hair, the clips are alwasy useful. I adore the double top knots, you look great with this hairstyle, and I am going to try it for myself.
    Thanks for sharing such a great inspiration, girl!

    Goody products are the best!
    I love all of your hairstyles. You look so cute with double top knots! My favourite summer hair style is messy hair (with no style at all haha) or just simple top knot if it is too hot.
    I also would like to try your Half up, half down style but I’m not sure that i will look good with this kind of hair style 🙂
    Thank you for you tips, very useful.

    Hi Kayla
    I saw this on your Facebook!
    Totally love top knots in summer but also in winter too for the gym or that effortless look.
    The double top knot is also such a great idea and reminds me of Gwen stafani hairstyle in the 90’s.
    I need to get a Goody boar bristle brush for my hair looks like it would be great for my hair too.

    First off, I love that you wear your natural hair! The upkeep is so hard, especially in the Summer! These are great ways to style your hair! I love the double top knots and braided bun! So Cute! I’ll also have to invest in the Goody Pins! Thanks for sharing!

    I love Goody products especially those small elastics. I’ve seen the spin pins everywhere, but I’ve never actually used them. I should really try them the next time I’m at a Target. I’m sure they’re much more secure than the normal bobby pins I use. My go-to summer hairstyle is definitely the top knot. It just keeps all my hair out of the face.

    Loving all of these tips girl! I still can’t nail the double top knot. It looks so great on you! But goody is one of my fave hair brushes! It’s always been my go to. Loving the half way up! It’s my new summer fave

  • Reply Jessica July 11, 2017 at 9:40 am

    It’s important to have backup hairstyles for when your hair does not want to cooperate especially when the humidity causes your hair to frizz up. My favorite style is the double top knots. Thank you for sharing! Xo, Jessica

    OMG i’m so lazy, most of the time I only leave my hair down straight or curled. You are amazing with how you style your hair babe! I love how you make the perfect bun!!! I struggle to do that and failed miserably every time Looks like I totally need that brush in order to succeed.

    xx, Jessie

    I’m loving all the hair styles you have created girl!! I swear I am the worst when it comes to styling my own hair and I always am in awe when I see other people do the perfect top bun or braids. Thanks for all the summer hair inspo!

    Such a cool summary of different hairstyles.

    I’m such a fan of the top knot. Super chic and on trend ????

    You suit them all ?

  • Reply Lily Rose July 8, 2017 at 6:11 pm

    Girl you are so cute. My favorites have got to be the top knot, the double top knot and the braided bun. The braided bun is such a cool idea. It looks simple and very chic but I never thought of it! And also, I always have issues with my top knots, so definitely picking up the spin pins from the store to try.

    Wow Kayla! Such an awesome hairstyle-post! I will be rocking these hairdos all summer 2017!
    thank you for inspiration!

    What a fab hair post for summer. I have more frizzy hair which means as soon as it is hot or humid, it starts going crazy. These hair styles really do beat the summer heat. I love just pulling my hair all up into a top knot like you show. The half up and half down are great too. I haven’t tried the space buns yet, but do it on my girls all the time. Goody is an amazing hair brand and their hair ties are the best. I need a new brush too so need to pick this Goody one up the next time I am at Target! Thanks for these hairstyles! xoxo, Christine

    I love all these hairstyles! Especially the space/mini buns! I have the same struggle in the summer as my hair is so thick! I absolutely love Goody and have for years, their elastics are so durable!
