Summer is the season for up-dos. With temperatures soaring, here’s how to look cool even in the most extreme heat.
A Perfect Ponytail

If you’re going out for a quick jog to the store, simply throw it up in a hairband and call it good. If, however, you’re going out for a festive night, take a comb to make sure the hair is flat to the head. For an added level of class, take some hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hairband to hide the tool. Secure the strand with a bobby pin.
A Beautiful Bun
Buns are a super simple evolution of the ponytail and work great whether you’re going to the beach or celebrating a fancy dinner. Once you have the ponytail you want, use bobby pins to secure the tail to your head by wrapping it around the hairband. Keep everything secure by adding hairspray.

Even so, this is a relatively fragile do, so make sure you’re not wearing it to play beach volleyball. Simply sweep your hair to one side and insert bobby pins vertically along the back of your head. Take the loose hair and twist it upward, securing it with more bobby pins.

Next, take the right one and pin it across the back of your head going left. Now take the left and pin it to the right. You now have a solid and cute coif to keep cool in.
