Pixie cuts are the perfect no fuss, no muss ‘do.

The perfect no fuss…

In the homestretch of summer, chlorine-soaked, sun-fried locks can start looking less than lustrous. (At a certain point, that “tousled beach waves” look you’re going for just turns to tangles.) Aveda’s Damage Remedy Leave in Conditioner  is a between-trims fix for limp hair that’s been battered by whether or overzealous heat styling.  Work it through wet hair before blow-drying or smooth a dab over dried-out ends after styling; either way, the conditioner reconstructs and boosts moisture without leaving strands feeling sticky.

By Allures beauty expert  Julie Giusti

SLEEK LOW PONYTAIL

The scoop: Apply mousse to your roots, then comb it through to the ends. Create a clean center part, pull all your hair back into a low ponytail, and secure it with an elastic. Add some polish by running a flatiron over the ends and adorn the base with a dramatic hair accessory (feathers and pearls are hot right now).

MESSY UPDO

The scoop: To create these flouncy updos.After the hair is dry,  make a deep side part before loosely pulling the hair back into alow ponytail. He then rolled the tail up (not under) into a loop that he secured with a few pins. Don’t stress if it doesn’t look perfect—it’s not supposed to. “We wanted the hair to get a little messed up when they were putting on their clothes to give the style even more texture,

LOOPED BUN 

The scoop:These make a polished alternative to sloppy ponytails but keep you just as cool. He parted the models’ hair on the side—”not too low or harsh,” he said. Gathering it at the nape of the neck, heanchored it into a low ponytail, which he folded over and retied with an elastic, creating a side loop. The finishing touch?  spritz a fluffy kabuki makeup brush with hair spray and glided it over flyaways. “Think of it as setting powder for your hair,”

HIGH, CHUNKY BUN

The scoop:  Part your hair down the center and tie it into a high ponytail. Tease the tail to make it big and thick, twist it, then wrap it around the base until you’ve created a perfectly rounded and oversize bun. Then secure it with pins and finish with a strong-hold hair spray.

BEACHY TWIST

The scoop:, Drew a deep side part, and twisted small sections into coils, clamping down on them with a flatiron for crimped texture. After securing the hair into a low ponytail, Split the hair into two sections and tied a double knot at the back of the head, and using a few pins to keep it secure. A chunky piece was left loose in the front of each model’s style; the sections haphazardly fell into the models’ faces as they walked down the runway.
