Hot summer days = CUTE UPDOS. I don’t understand how some girls can wear their hair down all over their neck, shoulders, and back on those sweaty summer days. I like to find new ways to get my hair up off my neck. Yeah a simple ponytail is easy, but what’s the fun in that? It’s also not fun watching 20+ minute tutorial videos just to find out the hairstyle you’ve tried is a huge fail on you. So that is why I’ve created this blog post. Below are 5 tutorial videos showing different cute summer updos. The best part is, each tutorial is less than 4 minutes!
It usually doesn’t help when I type out the directions along with the video so I’m not going to do it this time. It’s nice and easy to follow along with the videos. I will however write some comments below each video. Let’s get started!
Twist and Pin Updo
This hairstyle will work with all types of hair: straight, wavy, curly, long, short. Use Hot Off The Press to straighten or curl your hair if you are doing so. If you aren’t using hot tools beforehand, spritz your hair with it anyway, to add extra volume and to hold the hairstyle.
Bubble Bun with Braids
At the times she sprays her hair, the best sprays to use are this texture spray or Hot Off The Press.
Braid-Wrapped Sock Bun
Instead of using a sock, I use one of the hair donuts (it holds and shapes the bun better). Another thing I would change about this is to grab a larger chunk of hair and make one braid to wrap around the bun instead of making two small braids.
Summer Twist Updo
**This is my favorite style out of this bunch! Loosely curl your hair before beginning this hairstyle (using Hot Off The Press for heat protection + hairspray).
Braided Bun Updo
You might want to use some texture spray before starting this hairstyle. That way, your hair will grip together better.
I hope you enjoyed the videos. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them below. 🙂
