With Memorial Day weekend behind us and three glorious months of summer ahead, it's time to consider the seasonal affliction called sticky neck syndrome—that hot-day phenomenon of strands sticking to the nape, which demands a good updo stat. Our suggestion? Take cues from top models who, thanks to hours spent working with expert hairstylists, know a thing or two about simple, effective looks.

See the sleek ponytail on Natasha Poly, glimmering beneath the Cannes sun. Bella Hadid offers a romantic proposal via her dark mane swept into a wispy topknot, while Taylor Hill sports an athletic pair of French plaits that look equally fit for a rigorous workout or a long day at the beach. When in doubt, try a charming accessory: A navy bandana wrapped around Antonina Petkovic's soft curls, or two kawaii bunny-tied pigtails on Fernanda Ly. For the updo-averse, a hybrid suggestion: Imaan Hammam's curly half-up hair is one way to lessen the load on your neck—and proves that even if you don't feel entirely cool, you might as well look it.
