Hair Tricks: How to Keep Cool and Look Cute

9 Aug

Even though summer is coming to an end and school is starting soon, the heat is still here! With these hot temperatures, we know that it can be frustrating to get ready for the day. No matter where you are going or what you are doing, you probably know that it is hard to keep your hair in check. Here are a few tips and tricks to help you feel cooler and cute as you glisten in the sun!

Braid hair styles are very popular this year. Don’t worry ladies, if you can’t French braid, there are alternatives! You can take hair in the front off of both sides of your part and braid them straight out from the head, then pull them back across your hairline and towards the back to hold the hair off of your face. Next, simply stick a few bobby pins in to fasten the two braids together! This look can be worn on both long and short hair lengths.





















For those of you with hair that sits on your neck, a simple ponytail – whether sleek or volumized, low or high – is a cute look; but to dress it up, take a strand of hair from the pony and wrap it around the rubber band/hair tie and pin it underneath with a bobby pin!





















Now you have two very cute and easy summer looks. Have fun playing and trying out these ideas! Stay cool and classy  ♥
