In the heat of the summer, women with long and medium length hair often find themselves on the hunt for a way to pull their tresses up and off of their necks. This is the season when those of us with longer hair are green with envy over our friends who look so great with short hair. For everyone in a ponytail rut, the talented folks at Paige Simmons Salon have come to our rescue with a great video tutorial for a summer do that’s DIY-able and lovely to boot. And, as you’ll see, the keys to making this hairstyle work are product and prep. (Who knew, right?)

Grab a fresh cup of coffee and enjoy watching as our intern Alex learns the how-to’s for the Twisty Side Bun from Paige and her stylist Rya Ehle.

 

 

So, are you game to give this a try? Like Alex said, if you do, take a selfie and send it our way on Instagram: #SBHair.
