Pretty (Easy!) Summer Hair
The key to great summer hair
How-to get an undone bun
Secure with a bobby pin. A shot of hair spray finishes the look, but be careful not to use too much, Panico explains: "You want a few hairs to pop out; it’s supposed to look a little messy."
How-to get a smooth ponytail
Smooth back any flyaways, then tighten hair to your scalp and secure it with an elastic band. "You want to place it high, at the back of the crown," suggests celebrity stylist Riccardo Maggiore of Riccardo Maggiore Salon in New York City.
The trick to making it modern? "Teasing for added volume," Maggiore explains. Back-comb the top section of the ponytail from the elastic or use a wide curling iron like the Bed Head Curl Amp 1 1/2 Inch Styling Iron ($20; amazon.com) to create ringlets throughout the tail. "For a little extra oomph, wrap a small section of hair around the elastic to conceal it," Maggiore says. Finish with a hit of hair spray.

How-to do your own blowout
When hair is dry, reach for a few velcro rollers. "Simply pop them in where you’d like a little liftaround your crown, for instancethen hit them for a few seconds with a blow-dryer," Lozina says. After 10-15 minutes, remove the rollers and run fingers through your hair. Spritz hands with shine spray, such as Kérastase Paris Chroma Cristal ($37; kerastase-usa.com), and rub into ends to tame frizz.
