    You don’t have to pull your hair back to rock a slicked-back side part.

    Or go the opposite route and let your part fall haphazardly. Secure a loose ponytail or braid and don’t worry about the layers that fall around your face.

    A high ponytail, secured at the crown, shows off your cheekbones. Wrap a bit of hair around the elastic for added polish and spray a generous amount of a shine spray, like Oribe’s Shine Spray ($36), all over.

    Hair accessories needn’t be fussy! Just wrap a ribbon around your head, tie a bow, and voila!

    Sometimes more is better--try three French braids instead of one. Prep the hair with dry shampoo, like Aveeno’s Active Naturals Pure Renewal Dry Shampoo ($8), for added grip and texture.

    Try smoothing whatever pomade you use on your ends--we like Serge Normant’s Meta Form Sculpting Pomade ($25)-- on your roots instead. The extra shine makes a day-old blowout look fresh.

    Instead of going the traditional summer route and wrapping braids around the top of your head, pin them across the back.

    Not quite ready to commit to the wet hair look? Rub a dollop of mousse, like John Frieda’s Luxurious Volume Thickening Mousse ($6), between your hands and use your fingers to brush the front of your hair back.

    Do you normally part your hair on the right? Try the left for some added volume (or vice versa) and pull your pony to the side.

    The faux bob isn’t going anywhere! Invest in heavy-duty bobby pins like Meta Grip's Premium Bob Pins ($7) to make sure it stays put.

    Bored of wearing your hair in a bun while working out? Try using rubber bands to section off your ponytail and pin the length to the back of your head.

    A topknot might not be the most groundbreaking hairstyle for summer, but it doesn’t hurt to see a perfectly executed version.

    Instead of spending the humid months battling frizz with products and hair dryers, embrace the flyaways! Texture adds character.

    Throw out all the summer trends, skip product, and comb an uneven side part for a laid-back style that works just as well at a cocktail party as it does on the beach.

Sienna Miller

Going through an awkward in-between phase with your winter fringe? Try twisting your bangs to the side and pinning them back with a contrasting bobby pin.
