Cropped cut, ponytail or a low bun? Here, how celebs tame their summertime manes.
Amanda Peet looks polished in a pony.
Drew Barrymore proves wash ’n’ wear can go anywhere. (To keep this style from looking too undone, just make sure your makeup is immaculate.)
Thandie Newton illustrates how sophisticated a high ponytail can be. The secret? Keep things sleek.
Charlize Theron makes a low knot on the nape look naughty. So sexy, right?
As Uma Thurman proves, a headband can be your savior on a bad hair day.
A sparkly clip makes an everyday pony look elegant enough for evening.
Kelly Ripa’s half up/half down ’do is a quick way to take daytime hair into the evening.
Jada Pinkett Smith’s updo is the perfect antidote on days when you’ve got dirty hair—and no time to suds.
Don’t have hair as long as Sarah Jessica Parker’s? Create a similarly dramatic (but easy-to-do) updo by putting your hair in a high bun, then wrapping it with a synthetic hairpiece (available at any beauty-supply store).
Easiest hot-weather idea? Cut it all off, à la Halle Berry.
