It’s hot out there, so the last thing you need is to blast yourself with more heat, right? And even if you do manage to blowdry your hair without breaking a sweat, the humidity will basically undo your efforts within minutes of stepping out the door. We reached out to celebrity hairstylist Nikki Providence (who’s gotten Tori Kelly, Rose McIver and Kacy Hill red-carpet ready and worked on ad campaigns for Proenza Schouler, Nordstrom and Topshop) who says, “Just thinking about turning on a blowdryer makes me melt. With the right products and techniques, you can be all set for air-dry success!”

The simple truth is, it makes a lot of sense to get a spray tan or use self-tanner before succumbing to temptation and the sun’s damaging rays. Katherine Goldman, celebrity esthetician/waxologist and owner of the Stript Wax Bar says, “With a spray tan, you end up with the beautiful looking skin you want, but you avoid the pitfalls and risks that come with other tanning routes.
