Glam Braids

How to Get the Look:
Step 1: Keep hair in place by creating a deep side part, then use a mixed bristle brush to smooth down flyaways and frizz.
Step 2: Apply a small amount of pomade to your fingers to give shine and hold to the braid. Start French-braiding a three-inch piece of hair at the full side of your part.
Step 3: Pull the rest of your hair into a low side ponytail. Wrap the ponytail around its base to form a bun. Secure with bobby pins.
Step 4: Hold your style in place with a mist of light-hold hairspray. Apply a little extra on the braid to keep it from unraveling.

How to Get the Look:
Pull hair into a high, tight pony, then twist to create a bun. Leave out a piece of hair underneath to wrap the outside; pin it in place. Next, smooth flyaways with hairspray.

Soft Waves

How to Get the Look:
For a smooth and voluminous effect, wrap sections of hair around the curling iron, rolling in a spiral shape until about ear level. Hold hair in the iron for 10 seconds, then release.

Polished Pony

How to Get the Look:
Step 1: Apply a smoothing product to damp hair and blow-dry, using a round brush.
Step 2: Go over one-inch sections of hair with a flat-iron for sleekness. Flick your wrist under at the ends to give them a slight bounce.
Step 3: Gather the top three-quarters of hair into a high pony. Secure with a hooked elastic. (It will save you from bumps!) Wrap a small piece of hair around base to cover it.
Step 4: Brush the and the loose section of hair together, blending them into one long seamless cascade.

Jeweled Pony

How to Get the Look:
Step 1: Wash your hair, and let it air dry almost completely. Separate your whole head into two-inch sections, and wrap each one around a Velcro roller. Allow your hair to dry totally, then remove the rollers and shake out the waves with your fingers.
Step 2: Part your hair, pull it back into a low pony, then twist it up, leaving two to three inches loose at the ends. Bobby-pin the twisted part of your hair tightly against the back of your head, letting the wavy ends hang loose. Set the style with a strong-hold hairspray.
Step 3: Starting at your part, sweep the front section of your hair across your forehead to the other side so it hangs low. Add hairspray for hold, then insert jeweled combs about three inches back from your temples, pointing the teeth toward your face.
