Hot Hair

Posted by Rebecca Peel on Fri, Sep 9, 2011 at 9:59 AM

It's hot out there. If you're anything like me, you've recently been reminded that you have sweat glands, and that hair (who knew!) likes to STICK—like GLUE—to that wonderful secretion. Fortunately, there are many ways to avoid a moppy mess. They come in the form of sleek side buns, preened ponytails, and embellished braids. These 'dos never go out of style and, lucky for you, they've been at the forefront of fall fashion this year.

Try a high wrapped ponytail, a la Marc Jacobs

As you can see, you are never out of options! It just goes to show that a little creativity and a few hairpins can work wonders for comfort.
