In the past, my lazy go-to hair style consisted of me attempting to throw my hair up in a topknot, but I never quite got that one down. No matter how many hair tutorials I followed online, my bun always looked too perfect or like a nest of some sort sitting on top of my head. No bueno.

Recently, I’ve been rocking the half bun up do – an alternative to the topknot and a look I pretty much wore every day in middle school. The best part is there’s no weird sock bun trick necessary for you to create this look on your own. What do we think? Yes, no, maybe so?

Since the summer heat is upon us, these are few of my favorite quick and easy “throw your hair back” looks.

    Love the cuff pony. I need to find myself one! Turns such a simple style into something more interesting. Love!

    I love the cuff ponytail… I have a similar cuff from h&m and never wear it. I should though!

    Thanks for reminding me of some cute ways I can wear my hair this summer! I get in such a hair rut sometimes! I especially like the low knot ponytail!
