Good Day Sunshine
SUMMER SCENARIO: You want to impress your new BF's buddies by joining in their beach volleyball, but you're worried your waves will turn to cotton-candy frizz.
QUICK FIX: A high, flirty ponytail lets you play along and still look polished with hair securely in place. (Use a bit of volumizing powder at the roots for extra staying power.) The caveat? Never pull back strands when they're still wet from a swim or the shower, warns Dizon. "Wet hair stretches more, and as it dries, it will shrink up and break around the elastic," she explains.
