Every strand in its place. Insert a short side part and tautly brush hair into a low ponytail. Separate a small section of hair and wrap it around the base to cover the elastic band; secure with a hairpin and mist with holding spray to set.
Much like the aforementioned faux undercut but with a youthful bohemian feel. Insert two parts between two sections of hair and tightly braid around the crown, securing the ends with a elastic band.
Natural-looking beach-y waves are incredibly easy to master. Start with damp hair and insert a deep center part. Loosely braid your locks, stopping a few inches short of the tips, and allow to air-dry. Release, gently rake with your fingers, and go.
Breathe new life into those three-day-old curls. Loosely pile your hair on top of your head and insert hairpins sporadically to secure. If wispy strands fall free, let them—it makes the look perfectly imperfect.
Finger waves were all the rage in the ’20s and ’80s, but history is bound to repeat itself. Create a similar S-shape by generously apply styling gel to damp hair and mold your strands into shape using two or three fingers and secure with a hairpin in between each wave.
Finally—a New Age ballerina bun! Part your hair in the center and sweep strands high on your crown. Instead of securing with an elastic band, use several bobby pins. Tuck your ponytail underneath the base and tightly pin to finish.
Designers call upon the who’s who of hair to create beautiful and amazing hairstyles for their runway shows. More often than not, their looks are a bit too complicated and eclectic for everyday wear, but every now and then they treat us to a look that’s incredibly DIY. Here, a few favorites we’ll be rocking come fall.
Sure a partially shaved scalp is the tress look du jour, but what about tomorrow? Get trendy locks by inserting a deep side-part and brushing your hair over one shoulder. Set the ultra ’80s look with hairspray and holding gel.
The French roll and the ballerina bun—two different looks can become one elegant hairstyle. Roll your hair upward and secure with hairpins. Twist the loose strands into a chignon atop your crown and pin to finish.
Double the fun of the everyday bun-a pair of pigtails can pulled back and combine to create one mass of hair. The ends can be tucked and pinned underneath at the nape of the neck, creating volume. And don't worry if the front of your 'do looks a little undone, it's meant to be that way.
Love the short look but lack the heart to chop off your locks? Simply roll your strands up to the nape of your neck and secure with bobby pins to achieve the exact same look—sans commitment.
