A couple of months back, Scarlett Johansson wore a gorgeous braided halo hairstyle at a movie premiere, and since then, we've been seeing it everywhere. If you can French braid, you can easily create this look. You simply begin a French braid in the middle of the back of your head and draw hair into it from along your hairline. You continue around your head, making a horizontal braid that encircles your entire head.
Kim Kardashian is a big fan of the classic top knot and it's easy to understand why. This summer hairstyle is very easy to do and it's also very elegant. Gather all your hair into a ponytail very high on the top of your head. Wrap your hair around itself to create a bun on the top of your head, tucking the ends underneath the bun.
The sock bun is similar to the top knot, but you cheat a little bit to give this hairstyle some height. Cut the toe off a clean, unwanted sock and then roll it into a donut. Pull your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Slide the sock donut over the ponytail and slide it down to the base so that the sock is against your head. Then, you simply spread your hair evenly around the sock to create the bun and add another hair elastic to secure your hair around the outside of the bun. Make sure the fabric of the sock isn't showing.
Sophisticated and sweet, the chignon can work for daytime or night. Finger-comb your hair into a ponytail at the crown (or a little lower if you'd like) and tie with an elastic. Tease the tail to add some volume and then wrap your hair around the elastic to form the chignon. Secure with bobby pins and mist with hairspray.
If you still want to wear your hair down but need to be a little cooler, pull it into a ponytail at the base of your neck -- choosing one side or the other. Braid loosely. Don't be concerned with any stray hairs; this look isn't supposed to be overly polished.
