The Top Knot – A twist on an old classic.


  • STEP 1: Brush and gather your hair into a tight ponytail on the very top of your head and affix with an elastic band.
  • STEP 2: If you have it, spritz your ponytail with sea salt or styling spray, and then backcomb the ponytail with your fingers.
  • STEP 3: Separate the ponytail into two parts, one part in each hand, and then bring the two parts forward, on each side of your head.
  • STEP 4: Cross over the two parts and continue wrapping around until you reach the end of your hair.
  • STEP 5: Secure the ends into the bun with bobby pins, and add a bit of texture by breaking up the bun with your fingers.

The Springtime Tuck – A pretty vacation hairstyle that looks tricker than it actually is.


  • STEP 1: Take a colored headband and place it around the crown of your head, with your hair underneath, not over the top.
  • STEP 2: Hold the headband in place and tuck the lengths back over the top of the headband, until all the hair is tucked in, starting from the sides of your head under your ear.
  • STEP 3: Secure with bobby pins if you need, style the strands at the front and voila! Easy and feminine vacation hairstyles!

The Dutch Braid – Reverse your usual french braid for an eye-catching look.


If you’re a French Braid pro, you’ll pick this up in no time. The key is to weave the left and right strands under the middle strand rather than over.


  • STEP 1: Take a section of hair from the crown of your head and divide into three strands.
  • STEP 2: Cross the right hand strand under the middle strand so it now becomes the middle strand.
  • STEP 3: Cross the left hand strand under the middle strand, so it now becomes the middle strand.
  • STEP 4: Gather a section of hair from the right side of your head and add to the strand which is on the right side.
  • STEP 5: Cross the right hand strand under the middle strand.
  • STEP 6: Gather a section of hair from the left side of your head and add to the strand which is on the left side.
  • STEP 7: Cross the left hand strand under the middle strand.
  • STEP 8: Repeat until you reach the base of your scalp, and continue to plait to the end of your hair.
  • STEP 9: Tie off the end.
