The Impact of Heat on Hair

Our hair is composed of keratin, which can withstand a fair amount of heat. However, frequent exposure to heat, especially when combined with other factors like bleach, hair color, or chlorine from swimming pools, can cause damage.

“Heat is necessary for styling, but you gotta know your limitations,” Megan said.

1. The Elegance of French Pins

One of the simplest yet most elegant ways to elevate your hairstyle is by using French pins. These accessories can transform a basic bun into a chic hairdo. The trick lies in the application of the pin. It goes down one side of the bun, sweeps underneath, and comes out the other side, creating a secure and stylish look.

2. Hats and Claw Clips

Hats are a popular choice for many during the summer. Pairing them with claw clips can add a touch of sophistication to your look. Some hats, like the ones from Adidas, have an open back, allowing you to place your ponytail anywhere. Pairing this with a claw clip can make your ponytail look more feminine and cute.

3. The Sleek Ponytail

The sleek ponytail is a timeless hairstyle that has gained popularity among the younger generation. The key difference lies in the direction of the hair. Instead of going down, the hair is pulled back, maintaining the part. This style is easy, classy, and feels more elevated than a messy ponytail. To achieve this look, you’ll need a wax stick and a root touch-up powder to fill in any thin areas along your hairline.
