1. Dry shampoo is your best friend.

Lift up your bangs to spray the underside of the bangs, then rake your fingers through the roots to evenly distribute the product.

Great, affordable options include Not Your Mother's Clean Freak, Umberto Dry Clean, Batiste, and Moroccan Oil.

2. If you want to use hairspray, make sure it's anti-humidity.

Hairspray can hold your hair back, but for the summer, it's best to keep the weight off.

Minimum frizz: Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray

Budget-friendly: Suave Luxe Style Infusion

Absolutely sticky-free: Bamboo Smooth


3. Prep your face for extra absorption with finishing powder.

Finishing powders reduce the buildup of sweat and oil.

4. For more immediate quick fixes, use oil-blotting sheets.

5. Use an anti-humidity heat protectant when blow drying your hair.

For better results, blow dry immediately after showering and in the direction you want your bangs to fall.

6. Get a keratin treatment.

This typically results in frizz-free, luscious bangs for three to four months.

7. Ask your hairstylist for an undercut in the front to thin out your bangs.

8. If you want to pin up your bangs, make sure to use the bobby pin with the straight side facing up.

9. Stock your closet with headscarves.

Till winter, bangs.

10. Or hard headbands that will look fantastic with some teased hair.

Tease your hair from the front to the back of the head in order to keep them in place. Tutorial here. You'll need dry shampoo, a good teaser comb, and some hairspray.

Painless, pretty headbands can be found here and here.

Nothing relieves you of sweat like a nice, cool breeze.

16. Stay hydrated.

Drinking water is the #1 way to combat your body's sweaty urges.
