This simple updo is an easy way to create modern take on the faithful ponytail. The ponytail is a firm favorite on the catwalks at every fashion week; it gets reinvented time and again. This season we saw it worn higher and more textured, and this is a fabulous example of that look rocked by Meri Wild. It is also a great style to use if you are growing out bangs.

The halo braid has been popping up all over the place this spring. An organic take on the headband, it is elegant and chic and is great for when you don’t have the time or the energy to blowdry and style. It is also the perfect option if you need to disguise your roots in the weeks before you get your color done. Most of all, it is a terrific, girly summer style!

This hair is thick, long, and luscious with a nice natural wave. That’s a great way to be, but it is also important that styles like this don’t get weighed down with all the density. Shape is critical. This style shows how to tailor it perfectly. Long and loose layers give movement and softness, while keeping length. This opens up and slims down the facial features. The indiscriminate parting provides the disheveled elegance, while the sultry waves are super hot. For color, notice how there are lighter pieces around the face-frame, which helps to give the illusion of a lighter hair texture as well as bringing out her great complexion.
