Three Cute Updos for Summer!

Get that hair off your neck. Our stylin’-yet-sporty updos will keep you beyond cool, and look cute wherever ya go. Keep reading for easy-peasy ways to do it up in the extra-hot weather.

Double Messy Buns
Pigtails are way hot right now, and this is a cute twist on the trend.  How adorable.

How to: Use a comb to divide your hair down the middle into two even sections. Pull each section back into a low ponytail, right below your ear, one at a time. Then, loosely coil each ponytail into a messy bun, and use an elastic band to secure each bun.  Hit it with hairspray if you’re gonna be running around.

Twist & Shout
This hairstyle is easier than braiding, and looks just as cute! It’s a quick way to keep your hair away from your face.

How to: Split up your hair into two parts, and take a chunk of hair on the one side of your head, just above your ear, and begin twisting. Continue twisting downwards, towards the end of the hair. Then, grab the other portion of your hair, and twist the two separate sections together.  So, you’re kind of braiding your hair…but really you’re just twisting it.  Finally, secure the end with an elastic.

Half Way Ponytail
Part pony, part bun and totally loopy. 

How to: This re-invents the old, boring ponytail because it gives it new shape. Pull your hair back, just as you would for a low ponytail. Secure it with an elastic. Then, create a small loop with the pony and keep that in place with an elastic (you’ll have a half bun with a little tail down your back—way cool). But instead of pulling the tail all the way through, only pull it halfway. So original!
