With prom season just around the corner most of you are trying to make one of the biggest decisions aside from your dress, what to do with your hair! With so many styles out there to choose from it can seem really overwhelming and can be quite pricey and time consuming when getting them done at a your local salon.

I absolutely love this up do that Miley Cyrus is wearing. It’s a simple yet elegant up do and it’s effortless enough for anyone to achieve by themselves. The Mimic hairpiece by Jon Renau’s Easihair is a beautifully made elasticized scrunchie that could easily give you this identical look. Pull some of your bangs forward to frame the face or slick them back for an edgier look.

Hairdos wrap around pony takes only a few seconds to clip in and instantly you ready to go! What’s even cooler about this piece is that you can curl or flat iron them so however you want to rock it is totally up to you!

Miss USA pageants are filled with gorgeous women and bombshell hair. We all know the pain of rigorous teasing and back combing to try and achieve that voluminous picture perfect hair style but it really doesn’t have to be that complicated to get a great head of hair. Miss USA winner Rima Fakih has a mane that every girl would kill for! Here are some helpful tips to achieve her quick and easy volume all season long.

Start out with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. These products like Kiehls rice and wheat, are specifically designed and formulated not to weigh your hair down. Be sure to apply your conditioner mainly at the ends of your hair and avoiding your roots.  Then towel dry your hair and give your roots a boost with a volumizing spritzer. I highly recommend Bumble and Bumbles root lifting thickening spray.

Next, Flip your head over and begin blow-drying your roots while pulling them away from your scalp using your fingers. For maximum height use a round brush to finish drying, lifting small sections of hair upward and blasting heat directly at your roots.

Now that your hair is dry and ready to be styled were going to back-brush, not tease. Use a bristled brush around the crown section of your hair, this is a great new trick to get that plump poof without the damaging side effects of a smaller toothed comb.  Part it to off to one side and add a cute braid or flower for any occasion! You can curl it for extra volume or wear it sleek and straight with some extra height in the back. Finally, top it off with a light finishing spray to keep your beautiful new look in place all day!

Forget the curlers and flat irons at home because this summer it’s all about messy hair. And what better way to beat the heat by keeping your hair up off your shoulders in a messy up ‘do.

Here Scarlett Johansen shows us that we don’t always need to fight the frizz, just embrace it!  You can easily achieve this look whether you have short or long locks by applying a curl enhancing mousse into damp hair. After you’ve allowed it to air dry, pull your hair back off your neck and secure using clips or bobby pins.

One of my personal favorite looks for this summer is the messy pony. This is the perfect solution for any bad hair day! You can wear this look with your bangs swept off to the side to enhance your cheek bones or for a more edgy look pull them forward into a blunt bang and a messy bun like trend setter Nicole Richie.

I prefer to leave out just a few face framing pieces around the crown and then polish off the look with a shine or anti-frizz spray. You can really throw in your own personality by adding a braid or metallic headband to any of these styles. Try out some of these fun styles for your perfect summer up ‘do!

Start your summer with a bang!
