When you need a quick and easy way to keep your hair off the back of your neck, a headband updo is indispensable. All you need to do is put on a stretchy headband and loop pieces of hair around it until it's all up. When you're done, accessorize with some cute floral accessories for a whimsical, bohemian finish.

Styling tip

Apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray to damp hair and rough dry to add texture before styling.

2. Textured low ponytail

Whether you're dealing with humidity related frizz, or just want to keep your hair off your face, a textured low ponytail is a failsafe option. You can add detail with a ribbon or headband or just rock your pony as it is.

Styling tip

To add volume, mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and muss with your hands.

3. Tousled waves

Double buns are back in a big way, and if you're looking for an easy way to wear them that won't make you feel like you're in middle school again, try some low braided knots. With one placed below each ear, it won't create a Minnie Mouse effect, and your hair will be up and under control.

Styling tip

Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to seal your hair against humidity and prevent flyaways.
