Wrapped Pony Updo

With a sleek Audrey Hepburn-like society girl feel, this wrapped and carefully tucked-in pony would show off Chelsea’s creamy complexion and features beautifully, says San Diego salon owner Jet Rhys. The streamlined silhouette doubles as a clever way to control thick hair prone to pouf’ing under a hot summer sun.   “Chelsea is quite petite with a great, long and thick amount of hair. This look would showcase her neck and beautiful cheekbones,” says Rhys.
