How to Wear a Summer Ponytail as Effortlessly as Gigi Hadid

Summer: the season of a million creative ways to keep your hair off your neck. Sometimes a sleek ponytail will cut it, and sometimes you want something just as simple but way more easygoing (it is the season of pool parties, beach days and rooftop hangs, after all).

Gigi Hadid traveled to Australia this week for the launch of the Guess spring 2015 collection in Sydney. At the launch event, Hadid posed in an easy, va va voom LBD, embellished only by a side zipper unzipped to show off the model’s toned and tanned legs. Mirroring the ease and sexy simplicity of the dress was Hadid’s hair, natural waves intact, gathered into a mussed-up pony. Whether or not you have the loose layers Gigi sports, this pony is equal parts pulled together and easy going, making it an ideal go-to for summer events. It just takes beach spray, a hair tie and some tactful backcombing.

Complete the look with simple black eyeliner and a swipe of punchy red lipstick for a look that’s equal parts fun and sophisticated.
