With the warmth of summer months comes the dreaded sensation of hair sticking to the back of your sweaty neck. It happens to the best of us, however when you become aware of this uncomfortable scenario it becomes significantly tempting to simply shave your head and rid yourself of this issue.
Hold the razor for a second longer; a chic and elegant ponytail may just be the solution to your sweaty and sticky hair-plastered neck.
I started to experiment with this hairstyle recently, and not only is it incredibly simple to conduct, but it can be worn in a variety of different ways to best suit the environment of wherever you are sporting this look to.
To begin, flip your hair upside down. I actually bend over so that my head is close to my feet when I perform this hairstyle. With your head upside down, begin combing or brushing your strands up towards the top of your head, smoothing out any lumps or bumps. Once the hair feels sleek, secure your hair into a ponytail that sits just below the top of your head. When you have secured the ponytail and stand up to look at your reflection, the elastic should just barely be visible when looking at yourself straight-on. From here the styling component of this look is completely subjective; this ponytail look can be worn straight, curled or wavy, and all three options look great. I prefer this look with a curled ponytail, so simply divide the pony in half and drape both sections down either side of your face. Simply curl pieces of hair in each section until the entire ponytail is curled, run a wide-tooth comb through your strands and you’re on your way! To spruce this look up even more, consider sectioning off a small piece of hair within your ponytail, braiding it and wrapping it around the elastic to conceal it. Pin the braid in place and you’re well on your way to having a sweat-free neck in an incredibly stylish manner.
