French Twist: You don’t have to go straight to the Top Knot. With a second more, you can twirl it up into a French Twist. Secure with needle and thread for multi-day hold or hair pins for a single day look.

Half up Half down: Take second day texured waves, apply dry shampoo, towel it out at the root. Now you have a great textured base. take the triangle of hair at the temple and twist to the back. Secure the two sides with a barrette or clip. Easy and chic!

Messy Pony: Lucky for us, the messy pony is a fashion staple. Pull hair back into a pony, then lightly pull the hair around the crown to make it look “effortlessly tousled” up into a pony.
