Braided Bangs Half Up
Simple French Roll
This lovely style will make a statement during an interview or important meeting. It’s perfect for second (or even third!) day hair, and has all of the wow with none of the headache. Just wrap, tuck, and pin, and you’re on your way.
Those with shorter cuts can fake an up-do, too. This ponytail cheat is ideal for getting your hair out of your face and still looking elegant. It’s much easier than it looks, all you need is hairspray, a few bobby pins, and a clear elastic.

Braided French Twist
If you have a big event after work, this day-into-night style will become your go-to. The braided up-do works best on hair that has some texture and isn’t squeaky-clean (so now you have license to hit the snooze button and skip the shower).
