DIY: Gorgeous summer hair

Summer hair foes, like dryness and humidity,be gone! Heat up the summer in the best kind of way with these easy, do it yourself summer hair styles that will take you from day to night:

The Twisted Top Knot
A literal twist to your basic top knot with some added texture.

How-to:

  • First, gather a triangle-shaped piece of hair at the front of your head and section it off.
  • Grab all of your loose hair into a ponytail at the top of your head. Secure with an elastic.
  • Take the clip out of that front section of hair, then divide it into two equal pieces. Holding the sections above your head, begin crossing them over to create a tight twist that starts at the hair line.
  • Continue twisting the hair until it reaches the ponytail, then take the remaining hair and wrap it around the ponytail to hide the elastic. Twist it all the way around the base of the ponytail, then tuck and pin it to keep it secure. Grab your ponytail and begin twisting it tightly.
  • Continue twisting the hair until it folds up into itself.
  • Take the remaining hair and wrap it around the base of the knot, tuck in the ends, and then pin it in place.
Tied-up Up Do
How-to:
  • Grab a large section of hair at your crown and lightly backcomb it to add some padding up top.
  • Gather a section on each side of your head and pull each of them backward.
  • Cross the sections over top of each other and tie in a knot. Secure with a pin at the center of the knot. Repeat.
  • Grab two sections of hair directly below those first ones and create another double knot. Pin in place, then add one more knot below that.
  • Grab all of your loose hair into a ponytail. Roll the ponytail upward, leaving the ends out. Secure the roll with hair pins, then tuck the loose pieces underneath and pin.
  • Pull a few wisps of hair out around your hairline to create a piece-y look.
Faux Bob
How-to:
  • Begin by creating a deep side-part on the left side of your head then pull all of your hair to the right. Leave the hair on the front right side of the part loose.
  • Secure the braid with an elastic, then roll it under and tuck beneath the ear to hide it.
  • Once the braid is tucked and rolled, use pins to hold it in place.
