When the temps rise, so does our hair – to the top of our heads, and fast. But since regular ponies are already starting to feel redundant, we’re turning to the hair pros of the Coterie for some inspo. Here are nine easy upgrades that are sure to keep things interesting.
Curly Pineapple Pony
Get those curls up and off the back of your neck like Hortencia to avoid a sweaty situation. First, pull them up into a super-high pony, then pin the tail forward so your ringlets spill over the top and front of your head.
Ijeoma‘s regal summer updo looks much more complicated than it is. Weave your hair in two pigtail braids, then wrap them up and around the top of your head. Pin them into place, tucking in the ends to hide the hair ties.
Low Messy Bun
When you have high hopes of wearing your hair down and then the heat gets to be too much, Melis has your go-to move. But the trick to making it feel styled (and stylish) is to pull out a few face-framing pieces in the front.
Curly Double Buns
Tyla-Lauren‘s 90s-inspired look is double the fun. Simply part your hair down the middle, then pull it up into two high topknots. Blessed with curly locks? Just fluff your tresses for volume.
These guys are perfect for beach days for two reasons: they keep you cool, and they transform into the most perfect mermaid waves when undone. A little salt water (or sea salt spray) perfects the look. Lauryn has it down.
All the braids, one sleek bun. Aysha proves it’s the best of both worlds. Enough said.
Single Braid Pony
It’s just as simple to execute as a pony, but it adds a little something-something. Pull it high and braid a small section in the middle, securing it with a clear elastic tie like Lauryn.
Roll, Tuck, & Pin
Can you say summer wedding hairstyle? Elegant enough for a black-tie affair, but understated enough to rock at the farewell brunch the next day, Ijeoma‘s style keeps locks out of your face in a unique and lovely way.
