The reverse milkmaid is always a crowd favorite. While it looks like it would take forever, it's actually so simple. Click here to learn how!
No matter how long or short your current hairdo is, slicked back hair is both chic and super easy. Not convinced? Actress Willa Holland gives good hair inspo for the bold style. Warning: The look does require styling balm. We love Oribe’s Balm d'Or Heat Styling Shield ($43).
We love a messy low braid, and a three-strand braid is perfect for when you're short on time.
One of the downsides of having short hair is that you can’t just whip it into an updo. That said, you can add tons of volume by using one simple trick, teasing. Using a narrow toothed comb, or Sephora’s Bump: Boar Teaser brush ($8), lift sections of hair and begin combing toward the scalp at the root. Once done, gently brush the hair on top of the head starting at the root and pointed down to smooth flyaways without jeopardizing your new lift.
A classic rolled bun is perfect for almost any occasion. Not sure how create one? Check out our one-minute tutorial to try at home. Looks good messy too!
