Video: 2 Simple Summer Up-dos You Can Do at Home in Less Than 5 Minutes


It’s mid-August and we’re still reveling in the hot, hot heat of summer! But you know who isn’t? Our hair. Yup – between the humidity and the sun and occasional chlorine dip from cooling off in the pool – our locks are just kind of hanging there, limp and in the way. That’s why we hooked up with hair stylist Justin Broesky from St. Vital Unisex to put together a fun little SOS video for your hair.

These two quick and easy tutorials are “a great way to get your hair off your shoulders and keep cool while still looking pulled together,” says Broesky. “A tip for keeping them easy is to not make them too perfect. Keep them messy and tousled for a more relaxed summer look.” We’ll be starting with a sleek High Bun for the office, then letting it loosen up even more for the weekend. The Side Twist adds a feminine touch to the classic pony (plus still has the look of hair around your shoulders, adds Broesky) and will easily take us from daytime shopping to nighttime on the patio. Click to watch and see how you can recreate these up-dos at home!
