Rising temperatures mean it's time to get your hair off your neck. See how celebrities are giving summer hairstyles a chic, updo update
Topknot with French braidA simple topknot is so 2011. This summer, women are updating the simple updo with a party-in-the-back vibe. Creating an upside-down French braid under your topknot adds an almost hidden surprise. Plus, the polished topknot can be created in under five minutes.
How-to: "Flip your head upside down and create a traditional French braid, starting at the nape of your neck, moving up your head," says Sorbie. Once you reach the crown, pull hair into a high ponytail. Tie with an elastic, then wrap hair around the base and pin the ends. Lastly, use a pomade to smooth gravity-boosted flyaways on the top and sides of your hair.
