Space Buns

A music festival favorite for good reason! Space buns work with most lengths of hair (try half-space buns if you can't get all your hair up) and they require zero heat stylers, or styling skills 😂.

Low Pony Braid

A pretty, loose, low pony braid is an easy hairstyle to look polished in a pinch. Use a clear rubber band to secure your hair in a low pony, braid, and secure with another clear band. Then pull out the braid slightly for fullness–voila!

Undone Messy Bun

This look is a piece of cake! Who knew a messy bun could look so cool? The trick–add texturizing spray to your strands for grit and volume before tossing your hair up.

Snatched High Pony

The snatched high pony is a celeb favorite right now, and for good reason! It's easy, looks elevated, and lasts all day and night. The trick here is applying gel or styling cream to your hair before securing it in the high pony so you get that super clean, snatched look. Then, use a paddle brush to tease the pony for more va-va-voom.

Easy Twist

The French twist envisioned for cool kids under the age of 65. Enter: the easy twist! Got a wedding coming up or a pretty tea party? This is your new go-to. For this look, grab two long barrettes. Then twist your hair into a low pony, and secure with both barrettes to one side.

Knotty

We're not above getting knotty, and you shouldn't be either. This hairstyle is quite literally a knot, and is great for after-the-beach hair. The more texture, the better for this style! Use bobby pins to secure your style once you like the look.
