Come summer and we start looking for ways to keep our hair as far away from our skin as possible. The rising temperature combined with sweat is the perfect recipe for a mess. Some prefer chopping their hair, others resort to top knots to fight the scorching heat.

But there are some women who have an undying love for their long tresses and almost always end up tying them up in a ponytail. And why not, there’s no hairstyle as versatile as a ponytail. But that’s no excuse to wear the same old ponytail all season long. Not on our watch, na-uh!

Here are 5 cool ways to spruce up your ponytail this summer. Take a look…

Both sleek and sky-high ponytails are in vogue RN. Here’s the perfect melange of the two – a sleek sky-high ponytail! It’s the perfect summer hairstyle to show off your length and volume, and yet keep it away from the neck. Don’t forget to apply lots of hair gel to get a sleek look at the crown.

 

Twisted at the back

Looks a wee bit complicated, but really isn’t. Once you master it, this will become your go-to hairstyle. Let two sections of hair loose from the front on both sides. Pull the rest of the hair at the back into a ponytail, secure with a hair tie. Now, take the front right section, twist it and tuck under the left section of your ponytail, repeat the same on the other side.
