Yulia’s Hair Styling Tips
McAllister’s amazing stylist, Yulia Tyan, took a little time last week to give us a quick lesson on how to style a few eye-catching simple summer updos.
These step-by-step instructions will help you create a fun summer hair style that suits you just perfectly.
And as always, if it doesn’t quite work out like the pictures, Yulia is available Wednesday-Sunday to recreate these hairstyles (and many more) in no time at all.
This quick updo is great when you have only a few minutes to spare and are headed out into the summer’s heat!
This updo starts with clean and dry hair. If it’s been a day or two since your last shampoo, KMS California’s HairPlay Dry Touch-Up is an instant, weightless surface conditioner that instantly revives dry or overworked hair and is a perfect first step to prepare the hair for this hair style.
Section your hair into 3 sections (as pictured).
Create a ponytail using the central section and tie it in a knot over.
Then, create a second single ponytail using other two sections and knot over.
Use these two ponytails and knot them over until you reach them the ends.
Pin as needed and desired.
To finish this hairstyle, finish with KMS’ HairStay Anti-Humidity Seal and KMS’ HairPlay Playable Texture.
Braided Flower Bun
This style is super quick and takes less than two minutes, provided you know a basic plait and how to create a Dutch braid.
Start this updo with a Dutch braid on a small side section creating a loose and casual braid. Secure this braid with a clip at the end.
Then, create a loose plait braid using all of the remaining hair. Secure the end of this braid with an elastic band.
Wrap the loose plait braid around itself, creating a beautiful section that resembles a flower, and pin it in place with Bobby pins.
Then take your Dutch braid from the side and and wrap it around the flower-shaped bun. Secure with Bobby pins. Don’t forget to tuck the ends in.
To finish the this braided updo, again finish with finish with KMS’ HairStay Anti-Humidity Seal and KMS’ HairPlay Playable Texture.

More than a decade ago, William McAllister hatched an idea to disrupt the beauty salon industry in Miami Beach. He contemplated what salons once were in years gone by. He yearned to recapture their unique contributions to both personal beauty & community. In the past 10 years, he’s forever changed the industry, and according to him, he’s just getting started! He draws from a unique background – encompassing everything from neurophysiology, business to firefighting- and built South Beach’s busiest & most reviewed beauty concept in South Florida.
