    For the most part, summer fashion is all about staying cool and looking effortless — not sloppy. But as you go from wearing shorts to a sundress, don't forget to change your hair along with it. Sure, the ponytail is a timeless classic, but we were lucky enough to learn four easy summer 'dos from Aussie celebrity stylist Sarah Potempa (pictured!) during her recent trip to the Windy City.

    A native of Chicago, Potempa got her first big break working as an assistant for Bob Recine, a legendary hair designer responsible for styling some of the most prominent runway shows in the world (not a bad first gig, no?). After spending several years jet-setting around the world, working on some pretty amazing projects, Potempa eventually wound up creating a name for herself as a celebrity stylist.

    Today, she has an impressive client list that includes A-listers like the Olsen twins, Alicia Keys, Channing Tatum, Christian Bale, Olivia Wilde, and many more.
