Using sunglasses as an impromptu headband à la Christina Milian is one quick solution, but we also advise keeping a few hair ties on hand for a quick low ponytail.

Hayden Panettiere [21] pulled her long blond locks back into a casual bun to keep them from getting soaked in the ocean water.

Lily Aldridge's ombré highlights are perfect for Summer; the technique ensures little to no root touch-up is required. Be sure to use SPF in your hair [22] to keep your style looking its best.

When you have a short pixie like Miley Cyrus [23]'s, you don't have to carry rubber bands or hats. It's easy to just let it fly.
