    Try tying your hair in a low-slung knot a la Beyonce (on her way to a vegan lunch in Los Angeles). Use a drop of your favorite oil or serum to add shine.

    The more ambitious might give Julianne Hough’s crown of braids a go. Second-day texture will help keep the braid secure and make it look more cool than precious.

    Break out a barette or hair comb; nothing says I made an effort quite like an accessory, seen here on Stockholm Street Style.

    Embrace whatever wild texture you have going on, but pull half of it up and out of your face like Rihanna did in New York.

  • Lauren Conrad

    Wrap your high pony around a hot roller and let it sit while you’re making coffee for added polish, like Lauren Conrad’s here.

    If you go for the low-slung knot, try wrapping a piece of your own hair around the elastic, like Miranda Kerr’s here in NYC.

    Spray the top of your head with hairspray before pulling it back to create the shiny finish Poppy Delevingne wears so well at a Louis Vuitton party in Tokyo.

Rough night? We thought so. Read this before you click through the above slideshow. To achieve the following hair styles—ones that celebrate the bedhead you’ll see staring back in the mirror when you get up—you’ll need a can of your favorite dry shampoo, a few bobby pins, and, if you’re feeling really fancy, a black grosgrain ribbon. Best of luck.
