It’s officially summer – woo hoo! And the temperature is starting to rise – oh yes! Not sure about you but I am so ready for summer, nothing like a bit of sun on your skin to put a spring in your step. That said, the hot weather can be brutal sometimes – especially on our hair. If you have long hair, likely your finding the combination of hair, sun and heat a bit of pain and that having your hair pulled back and away from your face is a preferred option. Ponytails can be boring so we have pulled together some simple up dos, which are a bit more special.
