"Summer’s here, and now that the the heat is on, it's time to show off favorite hairstyles for looking cool in every sense of the word!"

How to Get the Perfect Chic Ponytail 

Step 1
For extra body, spritz a thickening spray through damp or dry hair, concentrating on the roots.

Step 2
If your hair is straight, use a small-barrel curling iron to create waves all around your head in two-inch sections; twirl the sections around your hairline away from your face. (If you already have some wave in your hair, skip to step 3.) Let your hair cool, then comb through the waves with your fingers to loosen them.

Step 3
Tease your hair a bit at the crown. Lift up a three-inch section of hair just behind the top of your head, and use a fine-tooth comb to gently tease the hair on the underside of that section.


Step 4
Brush your hair back into a ponytail, positioned between the crown of your head and the nape of your neck. (Lightly smooth over the teased section with the brush.) Secure it with an elastic that matches your haircolor.
