The dog days of summer are upon us and with that comes the need for fuss-free hair that’s casual, pretty and (ideally!) heat-free. Below, Maritza Buelvas of Beauty For Bloggers, shows us how to create three updo hairstyles that are high on “cool” factor, but low on time. Tell us: Will you be giving these styles a try in the summer days ahead? Do your plans also include sailing away on a watermelon boat? We’d love to hear all about it, so chime in below!

Supplies You’ll Need:

The Brunch Bun

  1. Place all of your hair in a low ponytail, leaving some front fringe out. We’ll be adding detailing with these extra strands later.
  2. Split your ponytail in half, teasing both sections for volume and wearability.
  3. Take the bottom section and flip it underneath to form a low bun and pin it in place using hairpins.
  4. Take your top (remaining) section and loop it around your elastic hair band and pin it in place. The end result should be a low, full bun that skims your neck.
  5. Lastly, twist your front fringe and pin it loosely in place at the side. Hold in place with rose-colored hair pins, or any other color you prefer. Let hair pins show, serving as a fashion statement.

The Three Strand Nautical Braid

  1. Form a low-rise ponytail and create three 3-D French braids (braiding from underneath versus over top).
  2. Secure the ponytail and braids with clear elastic bands. Leave front fringe out to add a little drama later on.
  3. Pancake (widen) each braid to add fullness, and secure the three braids together at the tips with one clear elastic band.
  4. To finish, take the front fringe and braid it in the same 3-D fashion and secure it to your ponytail.

The Gathered Garden Bun

  1. Form a high-rise ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Tease hair to add fullness and dimension.
  2. Split your ponytail into three sections. Twist each section and pin into place at the front, middle and back of the crown.
  3. Secure all sections with criss-crossed bobby pins to keep your messy style in place. Let your hair casually fall into place for a relaxed, sexy vibe.
