The Sexy Summer Flip—An alluring mix of punky and sexy, this style plays off an undercut but is easy to recreate and requires zero commitment. First, add a volumizing mousse to damp hair. Make a deep side-part and blow-dry hair with a boar-bristle brush, pulling hair to one side. Backcomb at the crown to for extra volume, and add braids underneath the hair or french braid the back, à la Charlotte Ronson's fall '11 show, or just keep it simple and flip hair over the top and to the side. Finish with hairspray.
