Messy Low Knot

Activity: Big day of sightseeing on the books? The messy low-knot is a chic and practical option for buzzing around town, as a little wear and tear makes the look.

What you’ll need: Elastic hair band and bobby pins

How-to: Start by teasing your crown with volumizer. Then loosely gather your hair at the nape of your neck and twist into a bun while pushing upward to keep volume at the crown. Seal bun with an elastic and pin any loose remaining strands with bobbies. Finish by pulling a few strands down around the face. It also works well as a side bun. Set your style with a flexible finishing spray like Joico Flip Turn Finishing Spray.

Half Updo

Activity: Morning and afternoon activities consist of brunching and shopping? Try a pretty and proper half updo for sweet but casual style.

What you’ll need: Bobby pins

How-to: Pull the front sections of your hair back behind your head, making sure to leave a part. Pin hair with bobby pins and tease crown with a fine-tooth comb for added volume. For a more casual look, leave hair straight. Fancier plans? Add some soft curls a la Camilla Belle.


Nicole Richie 6 Chic Weekend Getaway Hair Ideas

Activity: Any! Museum-browsing, baseball game, brunch, lunch. The options for accessories to pair with your plans are endless.

What you’ll need: Accessory of your choice. Scarf, barettes, hat, headband, anything your heart desires!

How-to: Want to perfect the hair scarf or bold headband look? Try it with waves like Nicole Richie or follow these steps to create an udpo: Start by pulling hair into your updo of choice. Next, position the middle of the scarf around the bottom of head where your neck meets. If the scarf is long – wrap a few times before tying in a knot at the top. If the scarf is short and doesn’t need to be wrapped, simply tie at the top. WA-LA!

It looks great both ways,” says stylist Teddi Bickers.

What you’ll need: Elastic hair band and bobby pins

How-to: Pull hair back into a high ponytail. Split ponytail in half. Loosely wrap one half around one side of the base, pinning in the back. Wrap the other half around the other side of the base and secure in back. Finish with a shine spray like Schwarzkopf OSiS+ Sparkler.
