Simple Summer Updos From Roy Teeluck

Hot temps and high humidity make it difficult to look elegant and effortless, particularly in the hair department. Roy Teeluck (of the eponymous Roy Teeluck Salon in New York and Miami) to the rescue with easy updos to get that hair out of your face and off your neck, and tips and tricks for the hautest hot-weather hair ever.

Sheckys: What’s an easy way to create an elegant updo this summer?

Roy Teeluck: Summer updos should be unfussy and unstructured. One of my favorite looks right now is a ballerina bun. Gather hair in a ponytail at nape of neck, securing with an elastic, then twist hair strands as you roll it into a bun. Secure with bobby pins. The bun shouldn’t be perfect; let a few loose ends stick out for added softness.  

S: What’s your go-to updo suggestion for a girl who doesn’t have a ton of time?

RT: For shorter hairstyles, take a dime size amount of L’Oreal Professionnel’s Or Graphic Golden Modelling Gelee*, smooth in palms, and distribute through hair to add texture and hold. Think of Ginnifer Goodwin’s punky short cut.

For longer hairstyles, a ponytail is always classic and chic. To keep it from looking too girly, gather hair at nape of neck in a loose ponytail, secure with elastic, and gather a few strands to wrap around elastic. Secure ends with bobby pins.

S: What are your top three hair product essentials for creating the perfect updo?

RT: L’Oreal Professionnel Infinium Hairspray for hold, L’Oreal Professionnel Smooth Essence Weightless Smoother to smooth the hair cuticle and bobby pins in a range of sizes. Use ones that most closely match your hair color.

S: Any summer hair tips to keep in mind during this heat?!

RT: Minimize use of styling tools such as blow dryers and flat irons. An excellent cut and the right product will allow you to make the most of your hair’s natural texture. Don’t fight it, work with it!

P.S.: Roy also loves L’Oreal Professionnel’s Liss Ultime line; created specifically to tame frizz. The Perfecting Serum is fantastic for addressing rebellious strands and adding shine. Rub a small dab in your palms and run through ends and lightly around hair line.

Simple Summer Hairstyles for All Lengths

Summer is approaching, and Natasha Sunshine, hairstylist and founder of Santa Monica’s Byu-ti Salon, wants to ensure that everyone has an easy summer go-to style no matter the length of your hair! Check out her top three suggestions and look stylish in a cinch this summer.

In the summer months, fresh is the operative word for hair. Using a light styler with a touch of hold like Pureology’s Colour Stylist Nourishing Nectar Sculpting Gel ($24.98 on Amazon), slick hair back while making a side part to keep the look feminine. To ensure that this style stays modern, make your part a little deeper than usual and use your fingers versus a comb to rake hair back. Let hair dry naturally, then run your fingers through one last time to break up any crunch from product. The result will be a clean yet soft summer style, like Victoria Beckham’s picture above.

MEDIUM LENGTH HAIR:

Go for a natural look by skipping the blow dryer. First, apply your favorite styler. I love Pureology’s Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher Shine Serum for Colour-Treated Hair ($20 on Amazon) for most hair types. Use a quarter size for thicker hair and a dime size for finer textures, and evenly distribute throughout.

For hair with a wave or curl like Kate Hudson (above), twist two-inch sections away from the face until your whole head has twists. Let air dry, then scrunch any product crunch away for a shiny, naturally wavy look.

For straighter hair, twist each section, then clip the end into a loop with a pin curl clip (you can find these at most drugstores). Let air dry completely or use a diffuser, remove clips and scrunch. You’ll end up with a fun, new textured ‘do.

LONG HAIR:

For a beautiful and easy updo, start with dry hair. Decide where your part looks best, then break the bottom section of hair into three even sections at the nape. Braid each section to the ends and secure with a rubber band. Then, take the three braids and braid them together. Roll that big braid up or under depending which way looks best, and secure with extra-long bobby pins for a classic low chignon like Jessica Alba’s (above). People will be shocked that you created such a beautiful style on your own!
