3 Ways To Up Your Mane Game

Beat the heat with sweat-free hairstyles courtesy of the 2014 runways.

Undone Bun

Keep things chic and simple with an undone ballerina bun. Effortless to recreate, simply pull brushed-out hair back with your fingers and secure a messy, slept in chignon with a hair tie (we prefer one with a decorative twist). To complete the look, keep your makeup to a minimum—think mascara only teamed with a bright lip.

Decorative Details

For this decorative updo, start by injecting texture with a styling spray, dry shampoo and a teasing brush. Next, create tight, all-over curls with your styler of choice. Roll and pin curls all over, securing them with decorative hairclips. For functionality, we recommend one statement accoutrement instead of ten tiny ones.

Sharp Parts

For an unconventionally cool take on the low ponytail, look to this perfectly parted pull-back from Fendi's fall '14 show. All you'll need is a styling comb, sleek, straight hair and a little bit of patience. Top off the look with a hair-wrapped ponytail, which can be easily faked with a lifesaving wrap accessory from Braza.
