Lucky for you, we have a few tricks to get you looking #VacationHairGorgeous in less time than it takes to hashtag all your photos.

inside out ponytail


  1. With your fingers or brush, gather your hair in a low ponytail and secure with an elastic hair band.
  2. Use your fingers to create a hole above the hair band close to the scalp.
  3. Pull the ponytail down through the hole, all the way through. Adjust the hair as needed.
  4. Look like a boho vacation goddess.


half knot hair style


  1. Take two sections of hair above the ear and twist to the back of the head.
  2. Tie a knot with the hair.
  3. Tuck ends of hair under.

mermaid braid hair style


  1. Take a square top section of hair and clip it out of the way.
  2. With your fingers or a brush, gather your hair in a low side ponytail and tighten with an elastic hair band.
  3. Braid the top section that you have clipped out of the way. Braid this section in the direction of the hair band.
  4. When the braid reaches the hair band, use another hair band to fasten over, securing the braid and ponytail together.
  5. Recline next to a pool and look like the siren you are.


how to tie a scarf
