The Braided Crown
Great for girls with long hair, this Heidi-inspired style keeps everything off your neck and away from your face. Simply twist up two pigtails and pin in place.
The Fishtail Braid
This style only looks hard, but the low fishtail braid is easy to pull off with a little bit of practice. Plus, if strands frizz out, great: Fuzz makes this style look even better.
The High Top Knot
Simple in theory — and simpler to style — the top knot just looks fresh and elegant on any face. Get creative by braiding a half inch-thick strand of hair from the back of your head and wrap it around the base of your bun.
The Twisted Top Knot
Lots of little coils create one great look. Twisting strands into mini-buns makes the giant topknot super-secure. DIY blogger Jenni Radosevich gives you the full how-to in her tutorial.
The Low Side Bun
This style should be done in 20 seconds or less — anymore and it'll look fussy. The idea here is to keep the style relaxed while still appearing sophisticated.
The Slicked-Back Bun
Sleek and sophisticated, this bun is all business thanks to it's dramatic center part. And since it's pulled back so tight, you won't be fighting back against stray hairs.
The Low Side Ponytail
Super easy and stylish, this ponytail can be parted to the side or center — the trick is to keep everything as smooth as possible. Wrap a one-inch strand from underneath your pontail around your elastic band and pin in place for a chicer style in seconds.
If frizzy or flat roots are your rainy-weather enemy, try out a super-trendy turban. (Save it for the weekends if your office is more corporate than creative.)
The Silk Scarf
Get more use out of your fave silk scarf by employing it as a bad-hair-day weapon. The scarf will help protect strands from the elements while also making an otherwise-messy updo look polished.
