When the temperature spikes above 90, a damp neck is any ponytail's worst Velcro. At Beauty Blitz, we're always looking for new ways to keep hair out of the way (attractively) this time of the year. This goal can be a challenge. Swishing ponytails are beautifully sporty and give the neck a bonus breeze. But when it's wildly warm, the tail clings to our neck like flypaper.
Last summer's casual top knot got a slick makeover. Kate Boworth paired a braided rendition with a Bordeaux beauty statement at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. And designer Iris Van Herpen gave models a center-parted style at her Fall/Winter 2013 Haute Couture Collection last week.
This go-to summer style is easy and won't budge during even the most humid days. All you need is a dollop of gel and a fine-tooth comb.
