Summer Styles To Keep You Cool

Summer is here and with it comes fun. The only problem with summer that can get us all down is the summer heat! Many of us have long hair and we love it and it has become our trademark. Yet, when the summer comes many of us have the strong desire to cut it all off so that we can get it off our necks and keep us cooler.

Don’t do it!!! We know you would be devastated if you cut it and we have some great alternative styles that are sure to cool you off and keep you looking cute.

Traditional ponytail:

All you need to do is to grab yourself a normal band and pull your hair back into a simple ponytail at the nape of the neck. For those of you who like to keep it smooth try using a simple frizz control cream. Stay away from the gel because this can make your hair stiff and in the heat it can drip. I find that Dove Frizz Control Therapy Taming Cream is one of the best (Dove is always the best for me) and it is relatively inexpensive.

High Ponytail:

This is basically the same as the traditional only you have to pull it up towards the top of your head. This look can help your cheekbones to look more angular. Just be careful because sometimes you can pull it back too much and the look you give yourself will make you look to harsh.

Black-Tie Ponytail:

For those date nights and other special nights you can go with the black-tie ponytail. The ponytail will sit close to the middle of the head. You will then hide the elastic band with one inch of hair which you will hold with a bobby pin.
