Who would’ve thought that a little mess can jazz up a simple hairstyle?

Ponytails are always in no matter the season. To create a laidback summer look, why don’t you put your hair in a messy ponytail? It’s charming and far from boring, especially if you have long, healthy hair to begin with. The key to pulling off this hairstyle is to not overthink it—just tie your hair, loosen a few strands, and you’re all set!

Clear Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair soft and dandruff-free by washing it with CLEAR Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. It also has fresh sakura fragrance that can help make your hair smell good even on a hot day. 

2. Top knot

With a top knot, you get your hair off your face and neck while looking chic at the same time.

A top knot is one of the quickest and easiest hairstyles for hot days. It makes you feel presko without making you compromise style. If you have long, natural curls, a top knot is also the perfect updo if you don’t want to leave your hair down. With curls already adding volume to your hair, you can nail a chic and voluminous top knot in no time.

Murumuru Butter deeply moisturizes and nourishes your locks. Because curls are more prone to dryness than other hair types, this eco-friendly shampoo is perfect for you.

3. Baby bun for short hair

A few loose strands framing your face can make a baby bun look even more chic.

Thinking of a casual updo for your bob or lob? Try baby bun for short hair. It’s cute and laidback—and it’s great for putting up short hair that’s already starting to grow.

4. Space buns

Space buns make for a quirky summer look.

If you want something fun and different, put your hair in space buns to look unique. It’s not just a hairstyle you can wear at costume parties when you want to portray your favorite galaxy superheroine. You can also sport this hairstyle when you want your hair to stay put and keep strands off your face. Just make sure the buns are nice and tight so they don’t unravel in the middle of the day.

Editor’s tip: Spritz TRESemmé Freeze Hold Hairspray on your buns as a finishing touch to keep them smooth and frizz-free and help them stay in place. 

5. High ponytail for medium hair

Aside from the baby bun, a high ponytail is another updo that you can sport when you have shoulder-length hair or a long bob. You can tie your hair either at the center of the back of your head or up high on your crown. And just like the messy ponytail, you don’t need to worry about making this hairstyle perfect.

6. Half up top knot for short hair

Make your short hair more chic with a cute half up top knot.

If your hair is not long enough to be styled into a top knot, go for the half up top knot. It’s just as chic and practical, and it’s also easy to do. Just tie the upper section of your bob or lob into a half ponytail, twist and create a bun, and secure with bobby pins. Now, you’re ready to face a busy day without strands of hair touching your face.

With these updos, you’ll definitely feel presko during summer. Now, get your hair ties and bobby pins and start putting your hair up to beat the heat!
