7 Cute And Easy Ponytails for Summer

By Lynette Neo


1. Classic High Ponytail

Does your ponytail moves lower at the end of the day? The solution to this everyday problem is to support your ponytail using hair pins! This tiny step will help you to create a higher and longer lasting ponytail!


2. Messy Ponytail

Since our hair always get messy before the day ends, why not make it messy at the start of the day! The key of this messy look is to tie your ponytail just by using your fingers. Try to loosen your ponytail and add some hair spray to keep it messy all day long!  


3. Bump / Fuller Ponytail

Sick of classic ponytail? Try tying two ponytails to create hair bump and fuller ponytail! You can also blow the upper part of your hair using hair dryer before tying it to create bigger bump!


4. Curly Ponytail

No one ever goes wrong with a curly ponytail. This look is suitable for both normal days and special occasions. You can also try matching this hair with cute or vintage accessories and outfits to look extra girlish! 


5. Twisted Ponytail

To achieve this twisted ponytail look, pin most of your hair at one side and twist it. After you are done twisting it, tie a ponytail at the end and use a small amount of hair to wrap the rubber band section!


6. Braided Ponytail

Braids and ponytails are lovely in their own way and it gets even better when you combine both elements! Whether it is three strands braids, french braids or fishtail braids, you can combine any type of braid you like with ponytail!


7. Bubble Ponytail

If you have really long hair and you always like to add fun elements in your style, bubble ponytail is one thing that you shouldn’t miss. Bubble ponytail is easy to create and it gives you the quirky and adorable look. Finish off this look with fun looking beachwear and voilà! The perfect look for summer!

Feeling fierce? Texture is key to a bigger, bolder Faux-Hawk Braid, perfect for making the most of summer’s last nights. Here’s how to get the look.

1. For texture, spray TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray and create waves with a flat iron. Finger comb hair to break up waves. Separate the top half of hair into three sections and tease the middle section.

2. Clip the top section aside and pull back the two side sections, securing them into a pony.

3. Unclip the top section of hair and begin a Dutch braid from the front, braiding along the center of your head towards the nape of your neck.

4. When your braid meets the ponytail, incorporate the pony into the braid.

5. Secure braid and gently tug on its edges to loosen.

6. Finish with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hairspray!

Horizontal Bun

Today’s new hairstyle, the Horizontal Bun, is something that I came up with recently that I have really come to enjoy.  It’s not that often that I come across low buns that I feel good wearing so looks like this are quite new to me.  What I like most about this bun is that it is low, but not particularly heavy.  I also love how this can be worn very clean, but also looks good messy.

Materials:

1) Brush

2) Two Large Hair Ties

3) Two Small Hair Ties

4) Bobby Pins

Procedure:

1) Start by brushing out your hair.

2) Split your hair in half by creating a middle part all the way down your head.

3) Use the large hair ties to create two pigtails at the middle, back of your head.

4) Braid each pigtail and tie off with the small hair elastics.

5) Take the right pigtail and begin creating a figure eight shape by bringing it up and around the left hair tie.

6) Bobby pin into place.

7) Take the remainder of the right ponytail and bring it up and back around the right hair tie.

8) Bobby pin into place.

9) Continue this process until there is no more excess hair.

10) Repeat steps 5-9 with the left braid.  Finalize with hairspray.

Diagonal Dutch Braid

When the Hunger Games movie first came out, the “Katniss Braid” was a big thing for hair.  While the movie franchise has now ended, this hair fad has not ended for me.  The diagonal dutch braid is such a staple because it is a simple way to keep your hair out of the way for school and sports alike.  Although there are already tutorials for this braid out there, I thought the style was an important one to be included on I’m Hair For You too.

Materials:

1) Brush

2) Hair Tie

Procedure:

1) Begin by brushing out your hair.

2) Take three sections of hair from the top corner of your head.

3) Cross the top section under the middle section. 

4) Cross the bottom section under the middle section.

5) From the top, front of your head, add in hair to the top section.

6) Cross the top section under the middle section.

7) From the bottom of your head, add in more hair to the bottom section.

8) Again, cross the bottom section under the middle section.  This is a dutch braid that goes in a diagonal direction as opposed to vertical.  Find a more in-depth tutorial here.

9) Continue this braiding process in a diagonal direction to the bottom corner of your head.  Once you get to the other side, all hair should be incorporated into the dutch braid.  

10) Finish off with a regular braid, tie off with a hair elastic, and spray with hairspray.

Dutch Braided Low Pony

Today’s new hairstyle is the Dutch Braided Low Pony.  This look is a little more time consuming and requires some skill in the area of Dutch Braiding, but if you are willing to put in the time, this style will look absolutely amazing!

Materials:

1) Brush

2) Large Hair Tie

3) 2 Small Hair Ties

Procedure:

1) Begin by brushing out your hair and creating a part of your choice.

2) Starting on one side of the part, separate three small sections of hair.

3) Start a Dutch Braid by crossing the front piece under the middle piece.  The front piece is now the new middle piece.

4) Then, cross the back piece underneath the middle piece.  Now, the back piece has become the middle piece.

5) Add in more hair to the front piece before crossing it under the middle piece.

6) Add in more hair to the back piece before crossing it under the middle piece.  (This is the process of a Dutch Braid.  Click here for a full tutorial.)

7) Continue this process along the front of the head towards the ear.  At the ear, continue the braid around and towards the back of the head.

8) Once you reach the middle back of your head, stop adding in any more hair.

9) Finish the section by creating a normal braid to the bottom of the hair.  Tie off with a small hair elastic.

10) Repeat steps 2-9 on the other side of the head.

11) Take the two braids and twist them together.  To secure, tie with the large hair tie and finish with hairspray.

Double Dutch Half Up

I absolutely love Dutch Braided pigtails.  I think they are such a fun way to keep the hair off of your face.   This is very valuable when doing sports or just hanging out in the hot summer weather.  I, however, also really enjoy half up/ half down styles because they also keep hair out of the way while still showing your hair’s length.  So why not combine the two?  The Double Dutch Half Up is a perfect combination of natural flowing hair with detailed and tight braids.

Materials:

1) Brush

2) 2 Hair Elastics

Procedure:

1) Start by brushing your hair and creating a middle part.

2) Take three small pieces of hair from one side of the hair.

3) Begin a Dutch Braid by crossing the left piece under the middle piece.

4) Then cross the right piece under the middle piece.

5) Add in more hair to the left piece before crossing under the middle.

6) Add in more hair to the right piece and cross under the middle.  (Psst…Having trouble with the braiding process?  Click here to find a detailed Dutch Braid tutorial!)

7) Continue this process.

8) Once behind the ear, stop adding in hair.

9) Continue a regular braid down to the bottom of the hair and tie off with a small hair elastic.

10) Repeat steps 2-9 on the other side of the head.  Finish the style off with hairspray.
