    Hannah Simone makes us laugh every week on New Girl, but her beautiful makeup at the Let's Be Cops Los Angeles premiere was no laughing matter. We adore her bold red lip, gorgeous pearlescent eyeshadow and thick liner.

    15) Best bob

    Is this Zendaya or Rihanna? We had to do a double take when we saw the Disney star in her newly cropped, wavy bob. We think it's a definite win, don't you?

    Whatever you do, don't apply essential oils directly to your hair. You'll need to "cut" these oils with a carrier oil that's safe for all-over application. We love Suave's Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil, available at Sam's Club, for this very purpose. Add one drop of peppermint (this stuff is potent) to your styling oil and mix. Run your fingers through your hair, tie it back and let it soak overnight for a tingling, refreshing peppermint sensation. Wash your hair in the morning as usual and your hair will feel totally moisturized, fresh and rejuvenated.

    Lavender essential oil is the equivalent of sleepy time tea for your nose. Its delicate, soothing scent is known for its relaxing properties in aromatherapy. If you shower at night, this is the perfect essential oil for you. Add two to three drops of lavender essential oil into your favorite leave-in oil treatment and apply throughout your hair. A little bit goes a long way, so use sparingly.

    If you have trouble retaining moisture in your hair, it's never a good idea to apply citrus fruit directly to the follicles, as it will dry them beyond belief. If you want the smell of citrus without the stripping effect, orange essential oil might be just the scent you’re looking for. Add one to three drops to your favorite carrier oil and apply for a sweet, clean scent that everyone will instantly recognize.

    Rosemary adds gusto to everything it touches. Whether it's rosemary-flavored bread or rosemary-scented lotion, there's something soothing about the woody herb. Cut your favorite carrier oil with a few drops of rosemary oil for a luxurious scalp massage.

    Quiz: WHat Hair Treatment do you need

    Even if you're just looking for a quick pick-me-up, don't forget that hot oil treatments are great for every hair type (we like Suave Moroccan Oil, which can be found at Sam's Club) — whether your hair is dry or oily, curly or straight.

    Weekly resurfacing exfoliant

    Resurfacing Treatment by Paula’s Choice

    An AHA is a chemical exfoliant, but don’t be turned off by the term "chemical." AHAs use naturally-derived chemicals like glycolic acid to soften, exfoliate and perfect your skin. If you don’t want to apply an AHA treatment every single day, there are some great weekly versions on the market. We like the Resist 10 percent AHA Weekly Resurfacing Treatment by Paula's Choice (paulaschoice.com, $30). It's gentle enough not to harm dry, aging skin and gets the job done. It's good for all skin types, too. Just apply the treatment once weekly overnight and watch as your skin glows in the morning.

    Ready-to-style hair oil treatment

    Don’t like the greasy feeling that comes along with oil hair treatments? Suave has you covered with their Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil, that doesn't need to be applied overnight — you can use in your everyday styling routine to moisturize, condition and provide a silky shine. Simply wash your hair as normal, towel dry and add two to three pumps into your hand and distribute along the mid-shaft and ends of your hair. Dry your hair using a hairdryer and prepare to be wowed by the shine. Pick up a bottle at Sam's Club today and give it a try. You'll be glad you did.

    Deliciously minty face masque

    Queen Helene Mint Julep Face Masque

    This green, mint-scented mask has been a cheap staple in the supermarket beauty aisle for decades. Don’t lets its small price fool you — Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque (ulta.com, $4) packs a punch for oily, acne-prone skin. Simply apply liberally to clean skin and allow it to dry completely, then wash off. The tingly sensation will leave your skin feeling refreshed and beauty junkies swear by its acne drying effects.

    Oil pulling for whiter teeth

    Oil pulling is a new phenomenon where naturalistas swish coconut oil in their mouths for 10-20 minutes to "pull" toxins out of the body. We can't attest to its toxin-purifying effects (neither can science), but oil pulling is actually a great alternative to typical teeth whitening methods. Skip the baking soda, turn on your favorite show on Netflix and add a teaspoon of coconut oil into your mouth. Advocates say this process encourages healthy gums and reduces infection and bacteria, but the whitening effects are immediately noticeable.

    Oil and sugar lip scrub

    Jar of coconut oil

    You can buy expensive products at Sephora that do the same thing as two staple ingredients in your kitchen cabinet. Lip scrubs are a new trend, but mixing a bit of oil in with brown or white sugar has the same effect. Simply mix sugar with enough oil to coat it, but not completely wet. (You won't need much of either.) Dip your finger in and scrub away at your lips for two minutes. When done, dab with a moist cloth to remove the sugar granules. Now your pucker is ready for the perfect lipstick without the flakes.

    Eager to recreate it, we turned to Giles Robinson, Color Wow Brand Ambassador, to get the step-by-step tips for doing just that. Have fun styling, ladies!

    Maria Menounos fishtail side braid

    Get the look

    "Summer hair is really at its best when it is simple, chic and understated, which is why braids are always so popular. Maria Menounos' sideswept, fishtail plait really glams up the idea of summer hair. The key to creating this look is lots of body and texture," Giles says.

    1. Start with freshly shampooed and conditioned, towel-dried hair. Then apply Color Wow Brass Banned Mousse and distribute evenly throughout your hair. If you have a lot of hair, you can put some mousse right on a wide-tooth comb and comb it through your hair to distribute it.
    2. Then, use some Pop & Lock Shellac through the mid lengths and ends of hair to give you that extra red carpet-ready reflection without making your hair greasy.
    3. Now, flip your head upside down and begin blow drying. Simply rough dry your hair (no brush) making sure that the roots stand away from the head, creating body.
    4. When your hair is nearly dry, bring yourself back upright and use your real bristle brush and blow dryer to smooth out the sections around the hairline. Make sure to maintain the body; the rest can be rough dried. If you want to secure the body in the top you can do a bit of back combing and lightly brush over.
    5. Take the hair and pull it all over to the front on one side. Starting from your neck line begin to fish tail your hair, taking two big sections and feeding in smaller sections from the outside to the opposite side. Keep repeating this until you get to the bottom where you can secure with a small band. I like clear elastics as they are invisible.
    6. To finish, any loose pieces around the front and sides can be loosely secured at the back using bobby pins or fine pins. If you notice any flyaways, use a small amount of Color Wow One Minute Transformation styling cream to smooth them down.
    7. Again, this look is all about looking relaxed, and not "structured," so don't worry if a few pieces fall down at the sides or the front doesn't look perfectly done.

    A&F announced this week that they will be working to remove their logo from their clothing offerings in North America in order to keep up with logo-less peers and appeal to a more frugal teen market.

    The company that used to signal "rich and popular" (or "thin and attractive," if you go by their CEO's comments) is now seeing its sales drop thanks to cheaper, more fashionable alternatives like H&M and Forever XXI.

    Some folks seem to think the issue is due to reduced teen spending and the rise of non-branded, affordable fashion. However, its hard to believe trendy teens are building a brand-blind frontier.

    After all, though their spending habits may have changed, teens --and adults -- still lust over $90 Lululemon yoga pants, and wish as you might that they'd go away, $200 Ugg boots are still a must for many.

    A more simple explanation for the brand's troubles?

    Abercrombie and Fitch just isn't cool anymore.

    Affordable fashion chains like ASOS and Brandy Melville may be experiencing a big boom with teens, but that doesn't mean buyers have given up on the expensive stuff. Trend-sensitive consumers will always identify status brands, and mixing investment pieces with a more affordable wardrobe is totally acceptable, if not cool in its own right.

    High-low fashion is hardly a new concept, but Abercrombie and Fitch most likely finds itself in the middle. It's no longer desirable as a teen luxury brand -- one to be showcased and saved for -- and nowhere near the price points of the fast fashion chains outpacing them.

    The removal of the moose is an attempt to move closer to their downmarket competitors, but it's questionable whether it will work. The company has so vocally, and for so long, positioned itself as the cool jerk brand comfortable in its own popularity, it's hard to imagine what its future looks like now that it's being eclipsed by the new kids in town.

    Braids are a gorgeous way to keep your hair pulled back and still look pulled together. Cary Fukunaga even sported some man-braids at the Emmys this year, spawning rumors that the trend will soon jump to men. But the problem for most of us commoners is how to achieve the cool looks we see. Enter Instabraid, one of the hottest new Instagram accounts, which collects and catalogs all the braided styles your heart could want.

    This sporty braided pony is perfect for your next workout:

    The best part about braids is that you can do them on almost any length of hair (even pixies can do little braids to pull bangs back), they're very secure and they only require a comb, hair ties and possibly a few bobby pins. Plus they look good on women of all ages.

    If I have one small quibble with Instabraid it's that they often don't link to the source or give directions on how to do it. (Although you can often find that info from helpful commenters.) If you're already pretty good at braiding then you can probably work it out on your own from the pictures.

    Occupation: model and founder of Model Meals, a Paleo meal delivery service in NY

    What are you wearing? Faux leather overalls from Forever 21, H&M striped crop top sweater, Franco Sarto booties, BuyConscious bracelet

    Why do you love it? It's sexy and shows a bit of skin but it still innocent paired with overalls. I also spill on myself so black comes in handy! These boots are my favorite because they're super comfortable for walking around New York but have a little heel.

    Standout accessory: This BuyConscious bracelet adds a pop of color and is for a good cause. I like knowing that something as small as what I'm wearing is giving back in some way.

    Style rule to live by: Use fashion to stand out but not to distract from what's underneath it.

    What are you wearing? Caron Callahan agra pants, an American Apparel cotton crop top,  Seychelles gold slingbacks shoes, Zara hat, rings by Cat Bird NYC, Mociun, Chanel and Lorraine Schwartz

    Why do you love it? It's one of those outfits I can wear to the office, happy hour, a writing session or a BBQ. I like mixing high- and low-end items and buying clothes from local designers. Caron Callahan's piece is one of my favorites. It looks like a skirt but it's not.

    Standout accessory: The Chanel ring was a gift to myself when I was at the Cannes Film Festival two years ago. I had never just walked into a Chanel store and bought something and where better to do that than France?

    Style rule you live by: You'll never look stylish if you look uncomfortable. Just go with your instinct, be weird and have fun with fashion, because, really, who cares?

    What are you wearing? Jumper from Urban Outfitters, bag from Free People and shoes from Aldo.

    Why do you love it? It's still summery enough for warm weather, but it's also pre-fall appropriate.

    Standout accessory: My necklace is by Zara and it makes a statement, while being pretty and indie.

    Fashion rule to live by: I'm not a matchy person. I can't match my shoes to my purse.

    What are you wearing? My top and skirt are from Intermix.

    Why do you love it? I love crop tops... they are my obsession this summer.

    Standout accessory: My flower ring was my grandmother's. She got it in Saudi Arabia and I wear it every day. Then of course, my engagement ring! It's my favorite piece of jewelry I own.

    Style rule you live by: My favorite quote by Yves Saint Laurent: "Fashions fade, style Is eternal." So true!

    Occupation: Co-founder of Host Committee, a party planning service

    What are you wearing? My top is Zara, the skirt is Lush and my shoes are Jessica Simpson.

    Why do you love it? It's a great look to take you from day to night. My company organizes parties so I'm constantly running from the office to my events so this works for everything.

    Standout accessory: My Chanel bag is big enough to fit everything and it's a classic that won't go out of style. I like to invest in timeless pieces.

    Style rule you live by: Wear things that make you feel confident and sexy. If you don't feel good, the outfit won't look good.

    Christina Mannino

    Occupation: Fashion designer and deejay

    What are you wearing? DEIVIE SS15 tank and quilted skirt from my line, Calvin Klein bralette, Schutz shoes, Rebecca Minkoff cross body bag.

    Why do you love it? I've been all about sporty looks mixed with glamour — so I added the chain detail at the neckline of the tank. An A-line skirt with a high waist is always a good way to go because it's loose and tight in the right places.

    Standout accessory: I bought these mirrored sunglasses off the street and my bag is versatile and goes with everything.

    Fashion rule to live by: Don't be a slave to trends. Be yourself and have fun with fashion.

    When it comes to stylemakers, all eyes are on Alexa Chung. And for good reason — this chick isn't afraid of any fashion, and it pays off. She is a master at proving that you have to give different shapes, silhouettes and patterns a try before ruling them out.

    We're drawn to Anna Kendrick during Fashion Week because she's the epitome of the everygirl. She wears sleek, well-tailored dresses to attend shows, but she punches up the interest with thoughtful details. Think a leather jacket, neon leopard-print heels and hot pink lips.

    6. Lauren Conrad

    Is it really any wonder that Lauren Conrad always catches our eye? This fashion darling has built her life around the style industry. We are still obsessed with the adorable floral Alice + Olivia dress (above right) she wore to the designer's show during Fashion Week in 2012 — not to mention that chic sequined Jenny Packham number (above center).

    Sure, Hailee Steinfeld is a newcomer to the fashion scene at only 17 years old. But this fashion-forward teen has certainly proven her style savvy over the last few years. Our favorite part? Her Fashion Week ensembles never seem like she's trying too hard — the fearless way she plays with color shows she's having fun with her age.

    9. Olivia Palermo

    While we can't say we were ever huge fans of Olivia Palermo's personality when she starred alongside Whitney Port in the short-lived reality series The City, we sure can't find fault in the girl's style. Not at all. She is a fashion show staple these days, and half the time, we find we're more interested in what she's wearing than the models.

    10. Zendaya

    We're not the only ones who think pretty Zendaya Coleman boasts some envious fashion know-how — at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, she won the Candie's Choice Style Icon Award. Last year, she created quite the buzz during Fashion Week with her bold and funky ensembles, so we can't wait to see what she'll strut this year.

    Teeth whitener

    Teeth Whitener:

    I've done this occasionally throughout the years when I felt like I needed a whitening boost. Mix baking soda with enough hydrogen peroxide to make a paste. Apply it to the teeth with a toothbrush, finger or Q-tip and let it sit for one to two minutes. Do this for a few days until you see a difference, but it's not for everyday use. I like that it's an inexpensive alternative to whitening strips, but it's messy, doesn't taste great, and you can't really close your mouth. It does make your teeth super-clean and fresh while giving you those whitening results over time. So try it out and see if you like it.

    Clarifying shampoo

    Clarifying Shampoo

    This was my favorite of all the baking soda beauty hacks I tried. Mix about a tablespoon of baking soda into the normal amount of shampoo you use and wash and condition your hair as normal. The shampoo seemed to suds more and felt very clean as I rinsed (which took a bit longer than usual). After my hair dried, I could definitely see that it worked very well to clarify my hair and scalp. My hair looked and felt very clean and healthy, and not weighed down from product buildup. I'd definitely recommend doing this treatment on occasion.

    Facial scrub

    Facial Scrub

    I mixed about three parts baking soda, one part ground oatmeal and one part water to make the scrub. Do this over the sink because it can get messy. The oatmeal is a nice addition if you have sensitive skin like mine, but you can leave it out if you like. Because the baking soda granules are so fine, it's easy to get carried away with the scrubbing because it feels smoother than traditional exfoliating scrubs, so be careful not to overdo it. I personally wasn't a fan of this beauty hack because it irritated my face a bit and I didn't see any visible improvements. My skin felt clean and oil-free, but also tight and tingly, so it's just a matter of personal preference.

    Dry shampoo

    Dry Shampoo

    Beginning with three- to four-day-old hair, I sprinkled on baking soda and massaged it into my scalp. It didn't do too much for the grease and I could see tiny granules. So I mixed half baking soda, half cornstarch and tried on another section of hair — better with the grease, but I could still see granules. It felt clean and I liked that it's unscented (unlike using baby powder), but this beauty hack didn't wow me.

    Skin brightener

    Skin brightener

    I mixed baking soda with a few drops of lemon juice and olive oil, and spackled the weird concoction on my face. Needless to say, I was skeptical. But then I felt a nice tingling sensation, and I washed the mask off my face after 10 minutes. You guys, my skin feels amazingly clean and soft, because the baking soda provided mega-exfoliation. I think it looks brighter, too.


    Mouth wash

    Do I get bonus points for rinsing my mouth with a baking soda and water mixture while wearing the skin-brightening mask? The homemade mouthwash tasted like the ocean and/or bruschetta, which isn't what I'm usually looking for in my dental hygiene. That said, my mouth felt strangely bubbly after I spit out the concoction, and now my teeth feel super-smooth and clean. I don't think there was much whitening action, though.

    Foot scrub

    Foot scrub

    Being an avid swimmer, rough skin on my feet is something that I've become accustomed to. Not being a fan of the pedicure, I typically do the normal scrub-and-go. However, those days are long gone now that I've discovered baking soda. Following the directions on the Arm & Hammer website, I soaked both of my feet in a tub with three tablespoons of baking soda before scrubbing with the same amount, plus one tablespoon of water. I scrubbed for a solid minute before allowing my feet to absorb the soak for another minute or two. Upon rinsing them off, I could immediately feel a difference in the skin of my feet. They felt softer and most of the calluses had nearly disappeared. I was shocked at the results and most definitely plan on using this method on a weekly basis.

    Acne paste

    Acne paste

    As a woman in my 30s, it's rare that I get a true pimple, but I do find the occasional blemish around that certain time of the month. Seeing one this week, I felt it was the perfect time to try the baking soda acne paste. Using three parts baking soda to one part water, I mixed the ingredients together before gently rubbing onto my blemish. At first the concoction felt magical, and I was happy to be using an exfoliator for nearly a 16th of the cost; however, the scrub felt a bit rough for my sensitive skin. Upon taking it off with a warm washcloth, I noticed that although it reduced the redness surrounding my acne, it also increased the sensitivity of my face. Indeed, my chin area felt softer, but it did slightly burn for a solid 15 minutes. I would advise that someone with sensitive skin do a test run on a portion of the face before applying more liberally.

    Sunburn soother

    I've been using baking soda on sunburns all my life. Adding a few heaping tablespoons to a cool bath will help for a while. Just make sure the water is cool, not warm or hot, and don't towel off. An even better-feeling (but messy) option: Make a cold water and baking soda paste and have someone slather it on your back while you lie on a towel, then rinse off in a (cool) shower once it starts to dry.


    There are a few options for this, but I made a paste with baking soda and water in the palm of my hand and then dipped my brush in it. The sort of salty taste is actually less nauseating than all those super-sweet toothpastes you can buy at the store. The gritty texture takes getting used to, though. But my teeth looked and felt super-clean afterwards.

    Spray tan

    This smart chick just did her first spray tan and then pulled on jeans. Six hours later, I had splotchy orange legs. I used a lemon/baking soda mixture to try to lighten just the dark spots, but then those were lighter than the rest. In the end, I got in the shower and used the same mixture to exfoliate. It took off most of the tanner, so my legs are lighter than the rest of my body. But at least I don't look like a zebra.

    I go in with an open mind and take my time browsing every section slowly. There are many pieces available if enough time is allotted to finding them.

    Young woman looking through a thrift store rack

    Name brands are the best things to find because you end up saving so much money by purchasing quality pieces secondhand. I especially love hunting for pieces that are pricier in department stores such as wool sweaters, leather boots and name-brand blazers. Oftentimes I browse a rack seeing a piece for its pattern or fabric, because many items can be altered to fit later on. After a quick trip to the dry cleaners or a tumble in the washing machine they are ready to wear the next day.

    I once found a pair of leather boots that just needed to be resoled for only $8. I snatched them up as quickly as I could and they are still one of the most cherished pieces in my closet.

    A Savers recently opened in my city and I was so excited to go explore what it had to offer. The store was very clean and every rack was marked with a label, so finding the clothing that would fit my style was easy to do. I found a classic black blazer that will easily be rotated through each season and a comfortable maxi dress that is versatile for the beach or dressed up for a night out.

    I also found a great pair of heels that were black and matched perfectly with the rest of the outfit.

    Black heels

    Here's the breakdown of what I paid for each piece:

    • Blazer: $4
    • Dress: $6
    • Shoes: $7

    All in all, it was a great trip and I was able to find things that I will be able to mix and match with other items in my closet.

    Thankfully, we're here to help with these 10 all-natural beauty hacks for the hot seat of summer.

    1. Blot away excess oil

    The summer sun can cause your skin to produce a ton of excess oil, but you don't need to just put up with it. If you're at a baseball game or public pool, sneak away to the bathroom and grab a disposable toilet seat cover. Use the material to blot your T-zone and soak up all of your excess shine.

    2. Chamomile tea for bikini burn

    Razor burn is a summertime beast, particularly when your bikini line is involved. Calm the burn and itch by soaking a bag of chamomile tea with water and applying it to your irritated skin. The chamomile will reduce inflammation and even treat the ingrown hairs.

    3. Vaseline for pool-ready makeup

    The only thing worse than waterproof makeup is the slow drip of mascara down your beautiful face. Instead of dealing with poolside makeup annoyance, just use Vaseline as a mascara substitute. It gives shape and darkness to your eyelashes, and you don't need to worry about raccoon eyes after getting out of the pool.

    4. Unclog pores with baking soda

    The excess oil and sweat of summer has a way of clogging pores and causing breakouts. Nip the problem in the bud by doing a once-weekly baking soda mask. Simply mix baking soda with water to make a paste, and apply to your skin for 10 minutes. The mixture draws gunk out of your pores and then sloughs away dead skin cells with its gritty texture.

    5. Chill nail polish for perfect shine

    Heat and nail polish just don't mix. Hot weather, in fact, can cause nail polish to gunk up and bubble as soon as you apply it to your nails. Fix the problem by storing your nail polish in the fridge the night before your manicure for a perfect finish.

    6. Scrub away rough heels with sea salt

    Flip-flop weather can be a pain in the heel when it creates rough and callused feet, but you can naturally buff away the problem with a potato and sea salt. Simply slice a potato and coat it in salt, and then rub it against your calluses. The natural properties in the potato lift away dead skin while moisturizing the area, and the salt further exfoliates.

    7. Ditch humid frizz with essential oils

    If you have any curl or wave to your hair, summer humidity can turn your style into a frizzy mess. Calm the frizz by placing one or two drops of essential oil in your palm, and gently combing it through your curls to tame flyaways. Your best bets are coconut, lavender or sandalwood oil for shine and a summery scent.

    8. Soothe a sunburn with aloe vera

    We all know that aloe vera is a sunburn miracle worker, but did you know it can actually prevent skin from peeling and flaking after sun exposure? If your skin is on fire after a day at the beach, squeeze aloe vera gel into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid. Then rub the aloe vera cubes on your skin to stop the burning, flaking and peeling in its tracks.

    9. Fix self-tanner mistakes with lemon juice

    Looking a little orange and stripey, are you? Fix your self-tanner mistakes by making a paste of lemon juice and baking soda. The lemon juice will lighten the dark spots, and the baking soda will smooth away the blotches and rough patches that hold on to imperfect color.

    10. Tea tree oil to calm the itch

    Mosquitoes, chiggers and ants are annoying summer party guests, and their bites can leave unsightly welts on your otherwise gorgeous skin. Calm the itch, inflammation and redness by applying a drop of tea tree oil to the bite. The oil will also help the bite heal faster.

    Diane von Furstenberg, or DVF for short, made a name for herself on the creation of the ultra-wearable wrap dress (which turns 40 this year). Her clothing is consistently versatile and, although not as affordable as your Banana Republic shifts, not impossibly expensive by top designer standards. One can easily imagine wearing DVF to a corporate office or on a steamy date night.

      The Alicia Printed Chiffon Dress is a soft, romantic option. A sweet rose print and red/pink color palette make it a perfect choice for a candlelit dinner or a trip to the ballet (DVF.com, $448).

    • Work-ready sweater
      A color blocked wool sweater in black, ivory and red would be stylishly corporate with a pair of pressed trousers and slick pumps (DVF.com, $298).

    • Checkered daytime dress
      A drop-waist silhouette adds interest to the otherwise basic black-and-white checkered Selma dress. Over-the-knee boots make this a great weekend brunch outfit or casual work ensemble (Aliceandolivia.com, $348).

    3.1 Philip Lim designer Philip Lim loves a good minimalist aesthetic, but he's also not afraid of pattern, color and embellishment. Although his wares tend to be pricier than most of us can afford to shell out for a stylish work wardrobe, there's no doubt that his dresses and blouses would fit right in at a board meeting.

  • The perfect ponytail

    Perfect ponytail

    Step 1

    The Perfect Ponytail Step 1: Backcombing hair

    Begin by backcombing (teasing) the hair on the crown of your head. Be generous with the backcombing (the pressure of the ponytail will pull down some of the volume).

    Tip: Use a boar-hair bristle brush for a better tease.

    Step 2

    The Perfect Ponytail Step 2: Smooth the top layer

    Next, smooth the top layer of the backcombed hair (this hides the teased hair underneath).

    Step 3

    The Perfect Ponytail Step 3: Tie back with clear elastic

    At the jawline, gather all of your hair to the lower back of your neck. Tie it off with a clear elastic band.

    Step 4

    The Perfect Ponytail Step 4: wrap a piece of hair around holder

    Take one small piece of hair from your ponytail and wrap it around the ponytail holder several times (or until you run out of hair to wrap). Use a bobby pin to hold this piece in place.

    Step 5

    The Perfect Ponytail Step 5: spray back hair with hair spray

    If you have bangs or loose hair around your face, spray hair back so it stays in place throughout the day

    Tip: Use a bobby pin to keep these hairs in place if needed. Be sure to hide the bobby pin for the most polished look.

    The Perfect Ponytail: Finished side view

    Knotted messy bun

    Knotted Messy Bun

    This look is best on those with long hair.

    Step 1

    Knotted Messy Bun Step 1: divide hair into two low pontyails

    Begin this look by dividing hair into two low ponytails at the back of your head.

    Step 2

    Knotted Messy Bun Step 2: tie like shoelaces

    Next, lay one ponytail over the other and pull one of the ends through the middle, as if you were tying shoelaces into a knot — exactly the same concept.

    Step 3

    Knotted Messy Bun Step 3: Tie another knot

    Tie another knot with the remaining hanging hair. Repeat this process until you reach the end of your hair.

    Step 4

    Knotted Messy Bun Step 4: Take loose ends and pin into place

    Now take the remaining loose ends of your hair and bring them up and around to the top of the bun. Bobby-pin these ends into place.

    Knotted Messy Bun Step 4: Finished

    Tip: Don't worry about making this perfect. The more undone and informal it looks the better.

    Step 5

    Knotted Messy Bun Step 5: Keep loose hair around face

    Keep loose hair around the face. This look is very boho and looks best when it's not perfect.

    Chic half up/half down

    Chic Half up Half down

    Step 1

    Chic Half up Half down Step 1: Start by backcombing hair

    Start by backcombing (teasing) the hair at the crown of your head.

    Step 2

    Chic Half up Half down Step 2: Use Hairspray generously

    Give this backcombed section a generous spray of hairspray, pushing up on the hair as you spray (this will help the hair "memorize" what position to stay in).

    Step 3

    Chic Half up Half down Step 3: Twist small piece of hair

    Next, take one small piece of hair around your face and twist it. Bring it to the lower back of your head and bobby-pin it into place (hide the bobby pins under the hair so they're not seen). This piece of hair should be pinned a little above the nape of your neck (this is a chic '60s look).

    Chic Half up Half down Step 4: pin a little above the nape of your neck

    Step 4

    Chic Half up Half down Step 4: Repeat on the other side

    Repeat on the other side of your head, twisting your hair and pinning it to meet the other pinned piece of hair.

    Step 5

    Chic Half up Half down Step 5: Finished

    Ta-da! A cute, chic half up/half down look in about three minutes.
