I am totally digging the summer updos or what not..Can’t get enough of the plaits, braided buns, fishtail ponies, cornrows, etc.  They are flattering without a lot of fuss, versatile &  sexy enough to turn heads. D efinitely a great way to avoid using the flat iron this summer.  Still in search of this pony tail that I’ve envisioned.  Its huge, wavy, and definitely a statement! Meantime, I can play w/some of these styles. 




How 2 on the Top Knot:::(Very bottom image)
A fixture at the fall runway shows, the top knot is a modern take on the been-there, done-that bun. Rub castor-oil balm between your hands and smooth your hair tight to the crown. Flip your head over and pull it into a high ponytail. Tease the pony slightly and work a dab of smoothing cream through it. Wrap it around itself to create a strong shape (like this “apple”) on top of your head. Secure the end with a few bobby pins and place hairpins around the perimeter.
