Summer is here! Flowers are blooming, everyone is planning their summer vacations, and temperatures are rising, which means it’s time to get your hair up and off the back of your neck! Staying cool by keeping your hair up doesn’t mean that it’s always in a boring ponytail though! There are numerous cute up-dos that you can try that are quick, easy, and incredibly stylish.

No, it’s not the ‘90s, and no, don’t use scrunchies for this look. Space buns have definitely made a comeback, but they need to be done right! This look is perfect for people with long bangs that can help accentuate their facial features. The buns need to be loose and messy and located up high on the head — we don’t want a Princess Leia look. Use a simple hair tie to keep the look modern and fresh.
Tuxedo Braid Bun
If you have the dexterity and stamina for this ‘do, it’s totally worth it! Start by separating your hair into sections and braiding the hair from the nape of the neck up. You’ll then take another chunk and braid from the top down. Continue with this until the entire back section of your hair is braided, and then connect it in a messy bun at the top of the head. This look will keep you cool and looking amazing, and it’s a great style for both casual and more formal occasions.
Accessories to the Rescue
Hair clips, scarves, ribbons, headbands, and more — there are a variety of ways that you can use accessories to keep your hair out of your face and up off your neck. A simple clip can be used to pull back the front sections of hair; wrap a ribbon or headband around your forehead and below your hair, but let the hair hang loose and natural; or use a scarf to cover and pull back the hair and tie the scarf at the top of your neck.
Low Braided Pigtails
For a casual and fun look that is cool and easy, low braids are definitely a hairstyle to try. All you need to do is separate the hair down the middle and braid away! If you’re comfortable with a French braid, you can do that too. Keep the braids loose for an on-the-go, beachy look, or wet the hair and braid them tight for a more sleek and sophisticated style. This hairstyle is perfect for sunny days when you want to wear a hat as well.
The epitome of class, a beautiful ballerina bun can be worn to a variety of occasions, and it’s an amazing opportunity to accessorize with fun and chunky earrings and necklaces. The bun can sit on the head wherever suits you or the occasion best, but we love either a super low bun or one that sits right on the top of the head. If you want your bun to stand out from the crowd, braid a chunk of hair and wrap that into the look.
If You’re Going to Do a Ponytail, Make it Stand Out
A ponytail is easy and convenient, but sometimes it’s worth it to put in some extra effort for a unique look that you can rock. If your hair is long enough, try a bubble ponytail, where there are multiple ties going down the length of the tail. Tease each section to add definition to the look. Or you can try a double twisted side ponytail: separate your hair into two sections, gently twist each section, and then tie them together behind one ear.
Get Flawless Hair With K-Gloss Keratin Treatments
If you want beautiful hair that will look amazing in any hairstyle you choose, a keratin treatment can promote smooth, shiny, and healthy hair. Also known as a Brazilian blowout, this is a chemical hair treatment that works as a tiller treatment to fill up holes in the strands of our hair using keratin proteins, amino acid, and hydrolyzed collagen.
Most keratin treatments use formaldehyde that creates a long-lasting smoothing effect, but who wants that in their hair? In addition, most treatments get their keratin from animal sources. K-Gloss is a water-based, non-toxic, natural, cruelty-free, and formaldehyde-free formula! We get our keratin from aquatic marine organisms, so no animals are hurt in the process.
