Half up and half down, a low ponytail is perfect for those who’d like to look polished and effortless at the same time. Add a twisted knot to your pony by wrapping a braid around the tie. A few loose waves will also bring an extra volume to the look. Pin your hair with some floral hair pieces to exude a sweet, sensual style.

Give your updo a softer touch with a low tousled bun at the nape of your neck. Classy and delicate, the pretty hairstyle also involves trailing a mini braid across the head to create a tiny crown. Don’t forget to tease your strands throughout for a breezy and relaxed finishing touch, too.

With ethereal twists and twirls detailed throughout, the secret to this gorgeous hair look is a voluminous wisp of textures and layers. Sweep your curls up into a side-swept updo. Then, create subtle plaits by looping your locks loosely on one side. Let a few strands tumble down for an effortlessly undone feel.

Striking an ultimate balance between elegance and playfulness, this pretzel-like hairstyle will definitely catch everyone’s eye at events. Tie your hair up and divide your ponytail into half to create two thick fishtail braids. Simply bobby pin both ends to pull off double loops before wrapping the rest of your hair around the tied knot.
