For fine tresses in need of volume, try a dry shampoo or texturizing spray.Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Volume Shine Hairspray, $11, marcanthony.com.Pantene Pro-V Original Fresh Dry Shampoo, $8, pantene.ca.Kérastase Couture Styling Short Mania, $38, kerastase.ca. Step 2 Start with a high ponytail. “I recommend you take your hair into two sections,” says Staley. Gather the top half of your hair and secure with an elastic. Next, brush the remaining half upward until it meets the top ponytail, tying the two sections together with one elastic. “It helps make the ponytail smoother and bump-free.” Step 3 Halve the ponytail vertically. Take a piece of hair no thicker than your pinky finger from the outside of the left section and bring it to the inside of the right section. Next, take an equally small portion of hair from the outside of the right section and bring it to the inside of the left section. Repeat the process, alternating between left and right, until you reach the ends of your hair, then secure with a clear elastic. Step 4 Using a hair paste, Staley recommends stretching and rubbing the fishtail between your fingers for a relaxed, beachy texture. Wrap the braid around the base of your ponytail and lock the twist into place with a few bobby pins. Pro tip Keep your fishtail looking professionally styled by practicing patience. “Hold the hair with lots of tension and don’t cheat,” says Staley. “If your sections are too big, you’ll lose the fishtail effect—it will end up looking like a standard three-prong braid.” Twisted updo: What you'll need Step 1: If your hair is thick and wavy, enhance natural texture with a salt spray; if it’s fine, try a texturizer. In extreme cases of baby-fine hair, you might need to call in the big guns: a curling iron.OGX Quenched Sea Mineral Moisture Shimmering Moisture Replenisher, $10, ogxhair.com.Kérastase Couture Styling Powder Bluff, $38, kerastase.ca.Goody Ouchless Mini Elastics in Clear, $7, goody.com. Step 2 Starting with a deep side part in the front, create a second section a few inches from the part and collect hair from one ear to the other, back-combing for texture. Gently smooth it out using a brush, making sure to leave volume at the crown. Step 3 Combine the back-combed section with the remaining hair along the base of the head, and divide into left and right sections. “Twist both portions of hair inward, then knot them together,” says Staley. Secure the twisted knot with bobby pins. Step 4 Twist the loose hair from both sides of your part and secure the ends with clear elastics. “Twist each section outward for a tighter, polished look,” says Staley. For a loosely defined style, she suggests twisting hair inward. Tuck both sections into the messy knot and secure with bobby pins. Pro tip For the ultimate summer beauty statement, balance your new twisted do with a swipe of opaque matte lipstick in a fruity hue. Before you apply, prep lips with a pea-size amount of lip balm or primer to reduce dryness and help the pigment lay down more evenly and longer.Tame summertime frizz with these 6 simple tips.
