3 cool ponytails for summer

Stay cool and keep your hair out of your face this summer while rocking an on-trend pony. Proceed with caution - none of these examples are your typical ponytail!

Big back braid


Get creative when it comes to tying your hair back this summer. A big braid at the back is so much more interesting that a regular ponytail.


Create maximum density by teasing hair at the back roots and volumize with a spray like the Savage Panache 60s Babe spray from the iconic Wild Stylers collection , pulling out a few sections for a laid-back, summery vibe. Use a transparent band to finish it off and enhance the natural style.

Messy side braid

We love contrasting a messy side braid with a sleek top section, for a look that easily transitions from the office to the beach. The great thing about this look is that the messier the braid, the more on trend the look. Plus, a side style means you can show off your color and length from any angle.

For the top, use a comb to apply a shine-enhancing gel like the Wet Domination Extreme Splash styling gel in a side part style. If you're feeling particularly daring with your mane, ask your stylist to intensify the texture even more by creating a braid using four sections of hair, as opposed to the traditional three.

Sleek low pony-bun

Back to the classic ponytail...but not quite! We're all about mixing up styles and incorporating elements of surprise into our hairstyles, which makes this ultra-sleek ponytail-bun hybrid perfect for summer.

Use the Sleek and Swing gel from the Dual Stylers hair styling line to create superbly shiny, swishy hair. Tie the lower section of your hair into a ponytail at the nape of your neck, then take the upper section and curl into a chic bun, tucking the ends invisibly into the hair beneath.

 

Feel great in whichever way you choose to tame the mane this summer!
