  • Messy Bun 4 of 12
    Messy Bun
    Messy buns can be great if done right -- and we love the low positioning of this bun. If you have enough hair, the fullness of the bun makes it look a little more than just an afterthought, and can look great for the summer and keep you cool.

    We love the tiny gathering at the top of this braid, giving the traditional single braid a princess-like twist. The trick? Tousled, not messy!

  • Side Braid 6 of 12
    Side Braid
    Bring a braid from the back to the front for an entirely different hair style! The great thing about this look is that it can even be done on shorter hair, because only the top section of hair is used in creating the braid.

    Ladder Faux-Braid
    This simple eye teaser is a great alternative to a braid that gives a similar effect to the hair. Simply tie together pieces from opposite sides (pulling from the underside of your hair) with a small band every few inches down the back length of your hair. Finish off with a band at the bottom to keep it all together and you're done in under 5!

    Add a side twist on either sides of your hair that lead to small knots held in place with pins or bands for a more romantic evening look. Date night preparation never felt so easy!
