1. Side braid
a. Brush your hair to the left or right hand side. Either side works just as well.
b. Braid your hair over your shoulder. Keep it loose or tight, either way is great.
c. Use hairspray and bobby pins to keep it secured. This will help ensure your braid won't fall out over the course of the day.
a. Divide your hair into two sections. Comb them out so that they're tangle-free.
b. Cross a strand from the right section to the left. Take a strand from the outside edge of the right section and cross it over. For a more intricate fishtail braid, use a very small strand of hair.
c. Cross a strand from the left section to the right. Take a strand from the outside edge of the left section and cross it over, making sure it crosses over the strand from the other side.
d. Continue crossing strands back and forth. As you move down the length of your hair, you'll see the fishtail pattern emerging.
e. Secure the end with a ponytail holder.
3. Sleek high buns with sock
a. Cut off the toe end of an old sock. A a long, thin sock will work best. Roll it down so that it resembles a donut shape.
b. Spray your hair with water. This step will help your hair curl up while it dries in the sock bun.
c. Pull your hair up into a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Pull your ponytail through the rolled sock.
d. Smooth your hair over the sock. Start at the tip of your ponytail, and tuck the ends underneath as you go. Repeat this step as you slowly roll your hair over the sock
e. Secure the bun at the base of your ponytail. You can use another hair elastic or bobby pins.
4. Sock Bun Curls
a-e is the same with Sleek high buns with sock style.
f. Let your hair dry in the bun. You can sleep with it or wear it out in public.
g. Take your hair down. When you take it out of the sock, your hair will be slightly curly. Spray with hairspray to hold the curls.
5. Classic Ponytail
a. Choose between a messy ponytail or a sleek ponytail. If you desire a neat and sleek ponytail, brush your hair and consider straightening it before proceeding. If you want a messy ponytail, which is just as cute, leave your hair in its natural state.
b. Gather all your hair at the back of your head. Choose either a low, medium, or high height.
c. Comb your hair to prevent bumps. You can use a comb or simply run your fingers through your hair while you're gathering it into a ponytail. If you prefer to have a messy ponytail, you don't need to check for any lumps.
e. Secure with a hair elastic. Make sure the elastic is tightly wound so your ponytail doesn't fall out. Either keep it simple or add cute hair clips. Adding headband can also enhance the look.
f. Try a cool twist. Take a thin strand of your hair from your ponytail. Wrap it around the hair tie and secure with bobby pins. This will cover up the hair tie for an elegant look.
Bobby pins that match your hair color are recommended so that they are less noticeable.
To spice up your ponytail, you can use a ribbon or bow instead of a proper hair tie. Another option is to cover your elastic with the ribbon.
6. Basic bun
a. Try a messy bun. Secure your hair in a neat ponytail. Twist the actual hair around the base, where the hair tie is. Secure with another elastic and pull random pieces out.
b. Do a sporty bun. Pull your hair up like you are making a ponytail. However, when you put the elastic in, only wrap it fully twice. The third time, only pull the pony halfway through. Pull out random pieces, if needed.
c. Do a sleek, dressy bun. Take a small bit of hair at the top of your head. Do a bun as described in the second method. Split the rest of your hair in half. Take the right half and wrap it around your head, including the beginning bun. Do the same with the left. To make it look cuter, add flowers, bows, etc.
7. Half Ponytail
a. Divide your hair into two layers. There should be a top layer and a bottom layer.
b. Gather the top layer. Pull the top layer back and away from your face as if you were making a ponytail. Secure it with a hair tie.
c. Leave the rest of your hair down. You can curl or straighten the rest of your hair, or just let it stay in its natural state.
8. Layered bob style
a. Clean, condition and dry hair. Section hair on side (brow to middle of head).
b. Flatten hair totally instantly and smooth the usage of a 2-THREE inch flat iron. Flat iron need to be set at FOUR HUNDRED-450 levels.
c. Comb hair positioned on the again and aspects of the head downward and the hair situated at the best of the head sideways, then forward — you should definitely stay the phase line in position.
