Plaited Summer Hairstyles

There’s also the added bonus that when you take them out, you’ll have beach waves to die for, without spending hours with a curling iron and drying out your locks.

Wear your plait in whatever style you fancy.  It can be high on the crown, a low side-plait, two braids or even a halo braid if you’re feeling adventurous!

Summer Hairstyles – High & Low Ponytails

High ponytails are fab for making your cheekbones look really high, which is especially good if it’s simply too hot to contour.

Low ponytails are the ultimate in low-maintenance, so they’re great for beach trips.  

For a cool night-time look that’s quick and easy, wear your ponytail low and to one side.  Maybe add a few waves to it using your styling wand.
