How do you do? Enjoying spring/summer?

I love summer for watermelons, mangoes, jamun fruit and for the first rain…. Yes, only summer can gift us all these… ย But, the only thing I hated during summer was, irritation by my hair ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Plaiting also didnโ€™t help to get rid of sweat. Do you have the same problem?

If yes, I have a solution! I have a tangle free hairstyle that feels great during summer. So, let me share it!

PPH or Pseudo Ponytail Hairstyle

This is a hair style for Long Hair. Minimum length of hair required is ยฝ foot after making bun. This hairstyle would be ideal for wavy and straight hair. It can also be tried on silky hair using hair gel/hair wax. This hairstyle is the best for office look. It will also look good along with a formal wear.

Requirements are:

A few hair slides (6-10)

U-pins 3-6

A Hair band

Hair oil or hair spray or hair gel or hair wax

PPH Requirements


Step 1: First, I set the hair in front. I made asymmetrical partition. I held it firmly with 2 slides each at left and right sides. Then I combed the entire hair back and tightly tied with a hair band. Note that tying place is 1โ€ to 1 ยฝโ€ above the nape.

PPH Step 1

Step 2: Next, I oiled hair and neatly combed. Hair spray or hair gel can also be used. This is to set the hair for long time. I held hair by left hand at about 6โ€-7โ€. I lifted the hair end with right hand. And I looped it around the hair band firmly as shown.

PPH Step 2

Step 3: I looped the hair end around the hair band to complete a circle. I ensured if the loop was firm. Later I made another loop around the first loop. I checked that the second loop locks the first loop. I looped the remaining hair.

PPH Step 3

Step 4: Where the hair ended, I pinned it with a slide. Later, I firmed the hair loop by u-pins. 2-3 u-pins are enough to lock the loop.

PPH Step 4

Step 5: I opened the ponytail end with fingers. Final look is as shown below.

PPH Step 5

This is my favourite PPH or Pseudo Pony Hairstyle. I donโ€™t have any problem with my hair and summer today.

By adding hair accessories, this hairstyle becomes perfect for formal/party occasions. Some of the hair accessories to mention are: brooches,beads or glitters, fancy hair combs, fancy hair pins/slides, etc. You may connect to an interesting website of hair accessories I love: catherinemee.

I must share that the credits of photography goes to my husband, Venu. He was very much patient to click until I got the right photographs ๐Ÿ™‚ Love you, dear!
