    2014 Summer Hairstyles: Casual Chignons

    Depending on the styling, buns can be glamorous or pretty but practical which makes them ideal for summer parties to sports day. Buns are particularly popular on hot summer days because they can keep the hair out of the face and off the neck. Pulling all your hair off your face and neck will help your all over tan.

     

    Tip: Modern bun styles are casual or undone. It is alright for a few strands of hair to escape from the updo.

    Tip: Sun visors, hats, baseball and other peaked caps are ideal for a stylish look in wind and sun.

    2014 Summer Hairstyles: The Big Hair Ponytail

    Ponytails are an always popular summer hairstyle. Give it extra volume on top of the head for a slightly different look.


    Slightly backcomb the hair over the forehead and on the crown of your head to create volume or apply some volumising powder to the roots with your fingers. Then gently gather all the hair at the back of the head and pull into a ponytail. The sleeker hair on the side emphasises the increased volume on top. Apply hairspray for extra hold.

     

    Tip: Gather the backcombed hair into the ponytail ever so gently to create as much volume as possible. For a smooth look, carefully brush the stop of the hair to smooth down any flyaways.

    Tip: Soft pastel shades add a subtle customisation to your look whilst complimenting your new summer tan.
