There is no better way to enhance your features and makeup than wearing a slicked back hair. Slicked back hair is predominantly done on straight hair, but if you want to add some curls go ahead! Also, you are going to need a teasing cone and a hair spray to achieve this look. You should tease front sections of your hair and cone them back, use hairspray to lock your hair in place and you are ready for the red carpet just like Kendall Jenner is!

7. Flirty Ponytail

Ponytails are probably the most diverse hairstyle. They have a special spot in both the gym and the red carpet. Gisele Bundchen’s flirty pony at this year’s Met Gala is our summer hair goals. The best thing about ponytails is that they will cut your get-ready time and will look just as stylish as any other hairstyle that demands a lot of effort. To steal Gisele’s look you will need to put your hair in a high pony and curl it with an iron. Additionally, tease the ponytail to pump it up and wrap a piece of hair around the elastic band.

8. Braided Bun

This is one of the most complicated hairstyles on our list, but also the most summer-approved one. You might need help from a friend or a professional to achieve it but the final result is worth the effort. First, you need to flip your head upside down and create a Dutch braid in the center. Then you need to finish braiding the ends and wrap the tail around in a bun. Lastly, use bobby pins to put hair in place.

9. Romantic Curls
