nsm Beauty: Effortless pretty! In praise of the simple summer bun …

Just last week, I wrote about the simplest ways to make a ponytail – that busy mama standby style! – soft, flattering and high on style (if you missed it, click here for the story!).

This could almost be the next step: simply twisting a softly drawn-back ponytail into a bun, and securing with grips or a pony band.

There’s nothing severe about this look, and this photo captures it so well, don’t you think?

Call it the off-duty ballerina!
