How can I style my hair to avoid getting overheated without making my head look tiny?

I have longish hair (just past shoulder-length). My favourite way to style it is to take about a half inch chunk of hair from just above the ears, pull it back and clip, so my hair is kept out of my face but is otherwise left loose. But, I'm no longer living in the South where everything is air-conditioned, so now I have to figure out a way to keep my hair off my neck, or I end up sweltering.
If I just twist it back or stick it in a ponytail or a single braid, it looks alright, but I think it makes my head look too small, or out of proportion, or something. I think I look better with some stuff going on around my neck. And when my hair is bound back, it's smaller around the sides and top as well.
I don't like to spend a lot of time on styling - anything that involves a curling iron or a hairdryer is right out. I only really started to figure out how to look okay when I was an adult, and I tend to find something that I'm happy with and stick with it. So I am totally lost. Hope me.
