Top 5 Hairstyles for this Summer

1. Skeleton Braid
Braids are perfect for hat lovers and for wearing helmets on a motorcycle or scooter. Use three sections of hair like a French braid, keeping the central section fixed as you gather strands from the sides only to weave into the braid. After you tie off the braid, pin it under and loosen the lower portion of the braid gently with your fingers. Tip: If you have frizzy hair, iron the front of your hair before beginning the braid.

  2. S-Braid
Very popular for graduations, this braid is great for informal jungle parties. Part hair on one side and start with a triangular section of hair. Begin a normal braid but weave in hair from above and below rather than from the sides. At the ear, begin weaving in hair only from below. Pin up the tail of the braid to hide it if desired.

3. Crazy Combo
An easy style that you can do yourself, this trendy look is a hybrid between formal and fun. Pull the top portion of your hair into a ponytail but leave the front bangs free. Fold the ponytail under and pull it up through itself. Then roll it and pin it into a bun. Part and tease the front of your hair and then cover the top of the bun with it. Pin sections of hair up around the bun to complete the style.

  4. Lovely Loops
Formal and elegant for jungle weddings, this style can be as intricate as you want by creating more loops and adding adornments such as flowers and pearls. Divide your hair into two ponytails, one above the other. Starting from the bottom, select a small section of hair, roll it under into a loop and pin it. Continue this process until all of the hair in both ponytails is roll and pinned into place. Add adornments as desired.

5. Wrapped Ponytail
When you're on the run in the jungle, this simple but elegant ponytail is just the ticket. Smooth hair back or to the side and tie it into a ponytail. Select a small section of hair from the base of the ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie, pinning it in place. As a variation, you can divide the ponytail into two sections, twist them around each other and secure with an elastic band.
