As the temperatures take a turn for the more pleasant, chances are your desire to get your hair off your neck is increasing, too, right? Whether you’re searching for the perfect hairstyle for an upcoming event or a simple ‘do to wear to the office, sweeping your strands into an updo is both a stylish and practical idea. From milkmaid braids to fishtail buns to top knots to ponies, below we share seven easy-to-create styles to keep you looking and feeling cool (quite literally) every day of the week. Grab your brush and follow along!

1. Messy Milkmaid Braids

Boho meets European chicness with this center part, double Dutch ‘do. Perfect for the professional who wants to look both stylish and put together at all times, this milkmaid braided updo works for everything from the office to the bar. To get the look, create a Dutch braid on each side of your head from your hairline all the way down to the ends. Once you finish your braided pigtails, simply pin them over top of each other in opposite directions to give the appearance of a halo braid and voila!

2. Fishtail Bun

Give your favorite day-two hairstyle a boost with a little fishtail action. Instead of spinning a traditional bun, pull all your hair into a ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Then, fishtail braid all the way to the ends and tie it with a clear elastic. Wrap your fishtail around itself to create a beautifully textured Boho bun for your day’s warm-weather activities.

3. Braided Double Headband

Why wear an uncomfortable plastic headband when you can get the same look using your own hair? Instead of weaving only one braided headband, try weaving a few so that you can incorporate a few different braiding styles into one gorgeous look. To get the look, take a section of hair on each side of your head to create a braid of your choice. Once you reach the ends, flip it over your head and pin it in place, making sure that your bobby pin is concealed, to give the appearance of beautifully woven headbands.

4. Double Dutch Braided Buns

Give your space buns an update by pairing them with inside out braids. Simply part your hair down the middle and Dutch braid each side down to the nape of your neck. Flip the rest of your hair into a teardrop bun, leaving the ends out in a spiky fashion. Gently pull at each plait to amp up the volume and nail a super-cute springtime look.

5. Sleek Low Bun

Looking for a formal hairstyle that’s not all that fussy? The search ends with this elegant slicked-back bun. To get the look, add a generous amount of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Style Gel into damp hair. Use a fine-tooth comb to evenly distribute it from roots to ends and to get rid of any tangles. Next, create a deep side part and smooth all of your hair back into a low ponytail. Twist your hair around itself and pin it in place to complete the look. Simple and seriously chic—two things we all love.

6. Messy French Twist

Known for being timeless and perfect for any occasion, the French twist is a hairstyle that’s been around forever but often gets forgotten. If you’ve not given a French twist a try due to being intimidated by the style, we have good news: It’s a lot easier than it looks! To nail the style, start by backcombing your hair at the crown of your head to help pump up the volume and give your strands some texture. Next, use your fingers to loosely comb your hair back and roll the ends in towards your head. Once you reach your scalp, pin them in place, use your fingers to muff it up a bit. You did it! Not so hard, huh?

7. Textured Top Knot

Forget about one texture for your entire head! Switch things up by smoothing all of your hair back into a sleek ponytail. Next, use a comb to tease your ponytail before wrapping it into a loose bun and pinning it in place. To give your textured look hold, give it a spritz of the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold before moving on with your day.
