The Top Knot
Hot, humid, sticky weather… not the best beauty forecast. While part of you is thinking of surrendering your fashion look and just going with whatever hairstyle keeps you cool, the reality is that you have to find a way to at least look amazing while getting into work before your hair has a total meltdown.
A heat alert rule of thumb; as long as your hair is touching your skin you will manufacture more heat which will produce more frizz, so keep it up and off of your neck. Here is an idea that keeps the hair off of your neck for a much needed cool down.
GET THE LOOK:
- Ponytail: Gather hair into a high ponytail. You want to have a bit of a dishevelled finish so don’t pull your hair super tight or smooth.
- Add texture: After you have secured it with an elastic, add a dash of Dream Waves Beach Spray to the pony; you want to add a bit of texture so that the hair’s natural movement is showcased. Use your fingers to move it through the hair.
- Add more texture: To add a bit more texture you can use your fingers to tease your hair; this adds dimension without a finished look. Hold the ponytail up and “rake” your fingers towards the base of the pony. In essence your fingers are the brush. This will add texture.
- Bun it: Once this is finished take the ponytail and loosely wrap it around the base of the ponytail in a circular motion, adding bobby pins to hold it in as you go.
It’s the instant cool answer to the sweltering heat.
