SUMMER-EASY STYLE

When it comes to a pretty warm-weather hair move for long tresses, we’re going to take a page from music star Ciara’s style playbook. Behold: the half-up ponytail! It’s a fun take on the partial upsweep we all love—but with the added twist of a stand-away ponytail at the back. To do, simply direct hair off the face at the crown and sides, leaving the back lengths down. Then, instead of fastening crown lengths flat, create a ponytail instead. Secure the ponytail with a covered elastic band. Next, wrap a piece of the ponytail at its base to help it stand away from the head. Use hair pins to secure. The result is a striking profile that’ll get you noticed. Promise.
