Summer has yet to officially start (T-minus four days, babes), but step into VDV HQ and you'd be none the wiser. We've been in summer mode for like, a solid month now. Summer-ifying our style? Check. Getting that California girl glow? Done. Obsessing over all things beach and bikini? DUH. So yeah, to say we're stoked about this season would be a serious understatement. One of the things we love most about summer is how laid back our beauty routines become. A pair of oversized sunnies and a smattering of SPF is about all we need this time of year. As for our hair? We're big fans of styles that require zero heat and keep it out of our faces. Think ponytails, buns and braids. And while you could definitely rock them in their most basic form, we're looking to spice things up a bit. Here are a few variations on old favorites that we can't wait to rock this summer.
