Braided With a Bow
Snag this modern fairy look by pulling your hair back into a low pony. Tease your strands, then divide your hair into three seperate braids. Use your fingers to pull out some layers and pancake each braid. Top them with texturizing spray, then wind the braids together and pin at the nape of your neck. Add a bow in your favorite color for total Blair Waldorf vibes.
Spritz dry hair with spray gel for staying power. Twist hair back into a low, loose bun. Secure with pins and add a fun bow on top!
Sparkly Side Swoop
To create a soft swoop, make a side part and pull hair back into a side pony, leaving the front pieces loose. Then sweep yourgently back and secure with a bobby pin. Twist the ponytail and wrap it around the base to create a bun. Pin around the bun to hold it in place. Add some sparkle with a rhinestone clip; then spritz the whole ‘do with a strong-hold hairspray so it won’t budge all night!
Amp up the glam with an extra glossy knot. First straighten your hair and apply serum for maximum shine. Then pull it back at the nape of your neck and roll your hair upward. Secure with bobby pins and a ton of hairspray.
First, get cool texture by using a micro crimper to crimp the hair around your forehead. Take that crimped hair and tease it a bit; then brush back. Pull the rest of your hair back into a ponytail, twist it into a bun, and pin in place.
Dupe this princess-y ‘do by applying a dollop of mousse to damp hair and air-dry before going to bed. When you wake up in the morning, throw on an elastic headband. Twist strands over the back of the band and tuck in place. No pins needed!
Separate your hair into two sections, using a rattail comb to part hair diagonally from the left side of your forehead to below your right ear. Pin the hair on your left side back and out of the way for now. Rub a dime-size amount of styling cream into your hands to smooth strands as you gather the loose hair on your right side, and pull it toward the left. Grab hair from the right side and twirl it into a bun, adding the hair from the left as you twist. Pin down flyaways and spritz with hairspray for a smooth look.
Create a side part and pull hair back into a messy low bun. Slip on a braided headband that matches your hair color and pull some tendrils out around it.
Rub a styling cream between your hands and apply to dry ends. Gather hair to one side and twist into a knot below your ear. Pin in place.
Make a deep side part. Then clip two animal-print extensions into the heavier side of your part near the front. (You can also use hair chalk to add colorful streaks before pulling hair back.) Keep the top section of hair loose and part hair diagonally from the top of your head to the nape of your neck. Clip up the middle section into a twist. Repeat with the top and bottom sections.
To get this amped-up updo that Taylor Swift wore to the 2012 AMAs, start by separating hair into a top and bottom section. Pin the top part up for now and brush the bottom back into an extra-tight ponytail. To add volume at your crown, take the top section of hair and spritz the roots with hairspray before teasing it down toward the scalp with a teasing brush. Brush back the top section so it falls over your ponytail. Roll all your hair up and under to create a swirl. Pin in place, and smooth away frizz with hairspray!
