How About Hairstyle?: One key to making a hat work, is picking the right hairstyle. Try sporting loose pigtail braids to keep everything in place even after you’re hat-free.

Ways to Beat the Heat: Get Tied-Up in a Knot Ponytail


Summer is now in full force and we (or should I say our hair) is feeling the effects. That’s right, you may have spent an hour carefully curling your tresses only to step outside and have them fall. Or if you’re a fan of straightening, strands will puff up in seconds –which leaves you looking like a character from the disco-dancing 80s. To eliminate all fuss, toss your hair into a ponytail. And no, not the plain kind. Try a chic knot that looks incredibly stylish but is oh so effortless and product-free. Hello hair envy!

Step 1: Brush your hair to eliminate all knots and kinks, ensuring that you are left with smooth locks.

Step 2: Tie a low ponytail at the nape (base) of your neck, using an elastic that is close in color to your hair or clear. That way there are no wild shades peeking through.

Step 3: Make a space in your hair above the elastic using your hands, and pull the pony tail though at the top –not below.

Step 4: Tug on the strands to secure the elastic and you’re set to beat the heat!

So why “knot” be adventurous?
