Most of us want cute, unique hairstyles to wear at work or school. This article demonstrates some quick, fun ways to style your hair.


  1. Try a ponytail. All but the shortest haircuts can fit into a ponytail, and there are several different ways to make it look your own. Here are some options.
  2. Make it neat or messy. For a sleek look, hold your hair about where you want it with one hand. With the other, carefully comb hair back into your hand, starting at your hairline and going all the way around your head. For a more tousled look, hang your hair upside down and muss it, using some light hairspray or a root lifter. Fasten without smoothing hair out.
  3. Set it high or low. Put your ponytail on the top of your head, at the nape of your neck, or somewhere in between.
  4. Move it to the side. Try positioning the ponytail just behind your ear, or make the shift more subtle by positioning it just a few inches to the right or left. Whatever you do, make sure it looks intentional - you don't want people to think you just couldn't get the ponytail straight.
  5. Leave some pieces out. If you have layers, bangs (fringe) or just want a less structured look, choose a few pieces at the top or side of your face to leave out of your ponytail. These can be curled, straightened, or just left as they are.
  6. Add a bump. For a trendy mod look, make the top of your hair "bump" up before it goes back into the ponytail. Backcomb your hair where you want it to have some lift, and set with hairspray. You can also add a cute headband to a bump, placing it about a half-inch away from your hairline.
  7. Hide the elastic. If you have long hair and a few bobby pins, you can mask the elastic used to fasten your ponytail. Pull a long, medium-width strand out of the bottom of the ponytail, near the center. Wrap it once around the base of the ponytail, over the elastic, and slip a bobby pin into it when it's back at the bottom. Wrap again, or as many times as you need to, and secure at the bottom again.
  8. Do a half ponytail. Grab the hair around the top of your head, leaving the bottom portion loose. Fasten with an elastic or barrette. This will keep your hair out of your face while maintaining a long, soft look.
  9. Split into pigtails. Make your one ponytail into two ponytails, also known as pigtails. Be careful, though - while a ponytail is something women of all ages wear, pigtails are typically seen as being for teenage girls and younger, or costume occasions.

Buns and Up-Dos

  1. Put your hair up. You don't have to reserve putting your hair into a bun for special occasions. Here are some ways to wear it in everyday manner.
  2. Use elastics or bobby pins. After you've put your hair into a ponytail, twisted it, and wrapped it around the base, you can fasten your bun with another non-rubber elastic (or two), or some bobby pins. Bobby pins offer a little more control, where elastics can make the base of the bun look smaller. Do whatever works best for you.
  3. Make it neat or messy. A very neat, structured bun is usually referred to as a ballet bun, because it's favored by classical dancers. To do this, comb hair thoroughly, make tight twists, and use hairspray. You can also do a messier look, twisting and pinning your hair in a more haphazard way. A messy bun works well on curly or wavy hair.
  4. Do it high or low. As with ponytails, a bun can be worn high on your head, at the nape of your neck, or at any intermediate point.
  5. Wear it to the side. If you choose to do a side bun, keep it low and positioned just behind your ear - a high side bun creates an awkward profile.
  6. Leave some pieces out. If you have layers, bangs (fringe) or just want a less structured look, choose a few pieces at the top or side of your face to leave out of your bun. These can be curled, straightened, or just left as they are.
  7. Make a braided (plaited) bun. Tie your hair back in a ponytail. Braid or plait it. Secure it from the bottom. Twirl it around the beginning of your braid or plait into a bun position. Secure with bobby pins or clutch.


  1. Braid your hair. There are a variety of methods for braiding your hair. Once you learn them, you can incorporate them into your hairstyle in big or small ways. Here are some basic ideas.
  2. Do a basic braid. When you're first learning how to braid, start with a stable base such as a ponytail, half ponytail or pigtails. Separate three sections, and braid accordingly. Fasten at the end with a non-rubber elastic. When you've mastered the technique, try starting with hair loose for a messy, less-structured look.
    • Do a lot of tiny braids with the strands at the front of your head, directly above your face. Layer them back and forth over your usual part, for instance, moving the first braid so that it falls to the right, the second so that it falls to the left, and so on. Then pull your hair back into a low ponytail or bun.
  3. French braid your hair. A French braid builds off the techniques of a basic braid, and includes the hair closer to your scalp.
    • Try a full French braid, or split into two French braids.
    • Alternatively, you can part your hair into two sections, French braid until you get to the back of your head, and gather both sections into a loose ponytail.
  4. Learn to fishtail braid. A fishtail braid looks complicated, but it's easy to do once you get the hang of it. Start with a stable base, such as a ponytail, for a neater look; for a messy feel, start with hair loose at the nape of the neck. A fishtail braid that's braided a bit to the side and worn over one shoulder is a trendy look.
    • Try a chunky fishtail. Most fishtails require small pieces of hair to be pulled to the opposite sides. That type of fishtail can be very time consuming for people with thick to medium hair. Instead of small pieces, take big chunky pieces. It will take much less time, and still look cute and unique.
  5. Do a halo braid. This only works on longer hair; it looks sophisticated and yet it's very easy to do.
    • Take a section from the side of your hair.
    • Pin up the sections you don't need.
    • Start braiding a normal braid.
    • After finishing that braid, bring it up to the top of your hair and over the other side.
    • Pin it with a bobby pin.
    • Do the same thing on the other side.
    • Finished. Spray with hairspray if wished but it should stay in place without it.
  6. Do a side braid. Brush your hair out so that it is smooth and free of tangles. Scoop all your hair to one side of your head and begin braiding. Once you get to the end of your braid, tie it off with an elastic.

Wearing Hair Loose

  1. Wear your hair down. Having your hair loose is a classic way to wear it, and prevents a lot of the damage that comes from keeping it in elastics all day, every day. Here are some ways to get started.
  2. Do it straight. To straighten your hair, you can dry it with a blowdryer and a round brush, or flat-iron dry hair. Some people with stubborn hair blow dry first, then finish with the flat iron. Either way, make sure you use a product that helps protect your hair from the heat.
  3. Wear it curly. Use a curling iron, curling wand or crimping iron to add curl to dry hair. Again, use a heat-protecting product on your hair.
    • To curl your hair without heat, start with damp or wet hair the night before. Twist small sections into tiny buns, and set with gel, mousse or hairspray. Take down dry hair in the morning and tousle gently. Do not brush out.
  4. Get wavy hair. To put some wave in your hair, dry it with a blowdryer and a diffuser attachment, scrunching it close to your scalp.
  5. Make cute no-heat waves. The night before, braid damp or wet hair into two or four braids or French braids, depending on the texture you want your hair to be tomorrow. Make sure that your hair is dry or damp. Braid your hair pretty tightly so that you can comb your hair tomorrow without losing the wave. In the morning, take out your braids and tousle gently. Do whatever you want with your bangs. Enjoy!


  1. Add accessories. One or two well-chosen accessories can really make your hairstyle stand out. One accessory - two, at most - is sufficient.
  2. Use ribbons. If you're fastening your hair into a ponytail or bun, add a ribbon to the style. You can tie the ribbon over any elastics, effectively disguising them, or use the ribbon alone.
  3. Wear a headband. Headbands can be elaborate or simple, and worn with loose or fastened hair. Experiment and see whether you like the headband to be close to your hairline, or farther back on the crown of your head.
    • Thick Hair: When you have thick hair in a headband, it tends to spread out over the headband, and look weird. You can fix that by pinning back a puffy section of your hair on either side of your headband.
  4. Use clips, combs or barrettes. These can be used to fasten your hair, or simply for decoration. Make sure the colors or designs don't clash with your outfit or hair color.


  • Using heat on your hair, as well as products that contain alcohol (gel, mousse, hairspray) can damage it over the long term. Try to avoid doing these things every single day.
  • Do your hair up in tiny little plaits and leave them in overnight.
  • Healthy hair is always easiest to work with. Use shampoo and conditioner as often as needed (every other day is generally how often you want to wash), and have split ends trimmed often.
  • It is not always necessary to straighten or curl hair. You are beautiful the way you are, and in most updos, hair texture doesn't play that big of a role.
  • If you're having a bad hair day, use dry shampoo to make greasy hair go away.
  • For wavy hair, you can braid your hair overnight.
  • If you are learning to braid, try practicing first on a doll with long hair. It's much easier and will help you learn.
  • If you have bangs that you do not like and are still growing, pin them up or put on a headband.
  • For a wavy look , after a bath tie it into braids and leave them in , take them out in the morning and don't brush out.
  • Have parents permission.
  • If you French braid your hair at night then all of your hair, top to bottom, will be wavy instead of just the lower half when you do a normal braid.
  • Try to put in a quiff, if you have a fringe or bangs pin it back and quiff it, or you could part your hair and plait it and quiff the top by putting bobby pins in :).
  • If something special is going on the next day, and you don't want to curl your hair in the morning, make Princess Leia buns at night. If you want your hair really curly put in about five to eight of them but if you want it kind of normal just do two to four.
  • Remember your bangs (fringe). Straighten or curl them, or flip them up over your hair and pin them back.
  • Don't straighten your hair frequently. Doing this can leave your hair damaged.
  • French Braid your hair then wet your hair. But don't take out! Sleep in the damp braids overnight and in the morning, take them out (don't brush them out) and you'll have perfect full length curls.
  • When you are doing braids or fishtails and your hair is slipping or just not working, make it a little bit damp and it will hold in flyaways and make your hair more agreeable.


  • When applying heat to hair, such as when styling with irons or blowing dry, use heat protector serum or spray to avoid damaging your hair.
  • Straightening and blow drying curly hair creates split ends, fries, and make hair unruly, but it may seem right at the time, but it damages hair.
  • When straightening or curling hair, be careful around water and hot appliances.

Things You'll Need

  • Headbands, clips, bobby pins, non-rubber hair elastics, etc.
  • Comb or brush, depending on hair texture and desired style.
  • Blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron, curling wand or crimping iron (if desired).
