Great for hiding second (or third) day hair, this fishtail-pony hybrid is easy to create and packs a serious style punch. Pull hair straight back into a sleek ponytail and smooth flyaways with a boar brush and hairspray. Take a small section and wrap around the base of the pony to hide the elastic. Create a fishtail braid and stop 1 quarter of the way down. Secure with a thin elastic, and you’re good to go!

Pretty In Plaits
This style looks more difficult than it is. Begin by parting hair in the center. Slick hair down to the nape of the neck and tie in a low ponytail. Braid and secure ends of the ponytail before pulling on the individual sections to add bulk. Pull the braid to one side and pin close to the base of the pony, then pull it to the other side and pin. Be sure to hide ends of the braid by tucking under.

This look is by far the easiest look to recreate and the most elegant. If you aren't genetically blessed with straight hair, start by flattening it with a straightener. Create a long center part and comb hair straight back. Attach a hook to the hair behind each ear with a hair bungee. Easy Peasy.

The New Classic
Never underestimate the power of a great topknot. It’s cute, trendy and easy to achieve. Start by spritzing hair with a texturizing spray and then pull it into a high ponytail. Tease hair at the ends and wrap hair into a messy bun. Pin on all sides to secure.
