Do braids and flower crowns always beat pony hairstyles effortless? No way!! Ponytails can be as awesome as the other two hairstyles, but the styling of pony styles is much easier when compared with the others. So, it is time to embrace ponytails rather than your braids or flower crowns.

According to Stella McCartney, it is all about the simple, low ponytail, proven by the chic ponytails showed at Monday’s Stella McCartney 2016 resort collection presentation in New York City. Those ponytails, created by Aveda guest artist Frank Rizzieri on models like Irina Kravchenko and Mijo Mihaljcic, deeply impress us with their easy-going, relaxed look. To perfectly match the designer’s signature garden-party theme, Rizzieri paired the low ponytails with a slightly tousled side part giving hair the perfect lived-in vibe. The content below displays how the artist did the styles.

First, he started with applying Aveda’s Thickening Tonic for more lightweight bulk to hair strands. By using this hair product, he can create each ponytail going along with a thick, full look. During the applying, he used the tonic on towel-dried hair and comb through to distribute it evenly to the hair, from roots to ends. “As you spray and layer it in you can immediately feel it expand each strand. I t just came out and already it is one of my kit essentials,” says Rizzieri.

Next, after the prepped hair was blow-dried with a round brush and a side part was created, he gathered the hair into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck and secured with an elastic. Then, a flexible hold hairspray, such as Aveda Air Control was sprayed to the hair. To keep the ponytail smooth, he run a flatiron over the hair. Done.

How do you think of these ponytails? Would you like to go for them? For those who only have a short or thin pony, but want long or full one, they can turn to ponytail hair extensions to do a favor.

Select The Most Suitable Hairstyle Basing On Face Shape

Summer is right here, so it is time to pick up some hairstyles that help skip sweat-neck. In terms of the hairstyles mentioned above, updo surely tops the list. For those who fear that there is not an updo suitable for themselves, they are about to be proven wrong, and this article is something must read.

According to Daniel Jordan, Unite’s European Creative Director, choosing the right updo is all about suitability, taking into account our outfit, silhouette and, of course, face shape.

For those who consider updo as something dated, they are wrong partly. “Updo’s used to be considered dated but with the current preference for messier, more undone hair, up-dos have evolved to become fresher and more wearable to a younger audience. Braids are a great example of just one style of up-do which is more contemporary and fun,” said Scott Ade, who is a stylist at Daniel Hersheson.

Because of the popularity and charm of updo, this hairstyle can be the one that we wear often in summer. However, how can we select the most suitable one for us?

Here are some pieces of professional advice offered by Daniel, Scott, and James Galvin from the Daniel Galvin Salon. They explain how to opt for updo styles basing on face shape with the examples of our favorite famous faces.

Round Face Shape

For those who have round face, they are suggested focusing on building weight on the round edges of the face to create structure, like what Jennifer Lawrence did to her hair. She seldom wore hairstyles along with anything too tight or flat, because those hairdos will only emphasize a round face.

A little height in the crown and a side parting make difference, since the former will elongate the face shape perfectly, and the latter will help to compliment our face, according to Scott.

Oval Face Shape

To make updo hairstyle more stunning in oval face shape, the most important element is all about creating softness and, like the round one, building weight around any edges of the face.

“I would avoid any high updos as this will emphasis and elongate an oval face even more,” advised Daniel.

Jessica Alba and Cat Deeley have oval face shapes that we are envious of, and we can get inspiration from their hairstyles.

Square Face Shape

Softening around the edges is required by this face shape, which is well proved by Angelina Jolie time and time again. To keep soft edges, just frame the face with strands around the hairline loosely. According to James, a side sweep or low chignon is great for a square face shape.

“A messier, more modern up-do would be the best look for a square face shape. My advice would be to leave tendrils of hair around the face to keep the look softer. A low bun or messy chignon would work very well,” said Scott.

Heart Face Shape

Having a heart face shape like Scarlett Johansson is something God blessed. It is one of the most enviable face shapes and it suits all updo hairstyles.

No matter which updo looks we choose, loose, fun, or structured, we can put off them if we have a heart shaped face.

“My updo of choice is a classic chignon with a modern twist. Or I will brave a deep parting or textured crown to spice up the look,” said James.

Long Face Shape

If we have long face shape, we should keep one rule in mind–avoid adding too much height in the crown when styling an updo, since the height in the top portion will only add even more length to our face.

Instead, we should gather our hair back into a sleek style. Besides, we can minimize the height around the crown by softening the face with loose pieces at the front.

To be frank, attending pool parties in LA, but not limited to LA, is more about showing off feminine charm rather than enjoying yourself only in pools. However, no matter what purpose you are for, and no matter where you live, you are suggested to show up with the best of yourself. One of the most important elements for being attractive by poolside is your pool party hairstyle. That’s why I recommend three fabulous hairstyles which can help take you from drab to fab in less than 5 minutes. Here are their how-to hair tutorials.

Look 1: Messy Side Braid

Step 1: Start with combing your hair smooth and then gather all your hair over one shoulder. Next, divide your hair into three sections. For thin hair, it is suggested that you create an illusion of thickness by using a texturizing spray or dry shampoo beforehand.

Step2: Plait the braid loosely, and secure the braid when reaching the hair ends with an elastic band. For extra sassy look, select a brightly colored hair elastic complementing your bathing suit.

Step 3: To create a more romantic hair look, pull out some hair strands to frame your face and drag both sides of the braid to make it looser.

Step 4: Finish with some hairspray to add shine and keep the style. If you don’t want more strands fall out, use bobby pins to secure them.

Look 2: Top Knot

Step 1: Gather all your hair up into a high ponytail, and secure it with an elastic band.

Step 2: For more voluminous hair look, use a texturizing hairspray or dry shampoo beforehand. Or you can tease your ponytail with a bristled brush until it is messy enough.

Step 3: Take the ponytail at the base, and then twist it around to create a bun. Secure with another elastic.

Step 4: Use bobby pins to secure any strands you don’t want falling out. Finish with some hairspray.

Look 3: Boho Beach Waves

Speaking of Michelle Keegan, most of us think of her enviable thick and flowing hair immediately. The actress and model’s gorgeous hair stunned us all the time, and surely there was no exception for her wedding hair. According to HELLO! magazine, the brunette beauty, who married DJ and radio host Mark Wright on May 24, selected two hairstyles for her big day.

Like all meticulous brides, Michelle carefully picked up the most suitable and most stunning ones from a mass of hair looks after deciding her exquisite wedding gown.

The charming lady selected the option of a half-up half-down hairstyle perfectly going with her breathtaking image, with the assistance of hairstylist, Lisa Laudat.

According to what Lisa told HELLO! Magazine exclusively, Michelle and her had discussed the wedding hair by pulling inspiration from their favorite hair icons.

Up until the last minute, they two tended to choose up or down hair look. But after seeing the dress, Lisa suggested soft luxe waves framing her face, and she got Michelle’s hair gently pulled back on the top to create height and structure.

“I achieved this look by applying Aweda’s Phomollient Styling Foam and then doing a gorgeous blow out to keep the hair looking glossy for the all day celebrations,” Lisa said, “I then sectioned off the hair, backcombed at the root and pinned everything in to place all ready for the veil which completed the look.”

For the reception at Hengrave Hall in Suffolk, the new Mrs Wright took off her dreamy Indian veil. Besides, she changed into a 1950s style dress. Anyway, she looked so charming all the same.

Slightly different from the first hairstyle, the second one only took Michelle a few minutes as she was keen to spend as much time with her family and friends as possible.

To make the hair look stunning all the same within the shortest time, the hairstylist only had her hair retouched a little bit.

According to Lisa, she unpinned Michelle’s hair, spritzing with a little of the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray before curling each section slightly with T3 wand tongs.

“Michelle didn’t want to spend too much time away from the party so I had to be super quick,” said Lisa. “I under-dressed the hair by pulling gently through with my fingers and then after a quick spritz of Elnett hairspray, off she ran back to the party.”
