I wanted to make sure we covered all the bases so worked with short, medium and long styles.

Look 1: Exposed Bobby PIns

  • Save
We’ve been seeing this trend everywhere from Pinterest to the red carpet. I love that a simple functional piece is being used as an accessory. It’s also great on any hair length, so short haired girls listen up!! The possibilities are endless with these babies. You can add embellished pearl pins or just contrasting colored ones (pictured below).

Get the look:

Step 1: Curl hair away from you face using a 1″ curling iron or wand. I used the T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Wand

Step 2: Add texture spray to add volume and help curls hold the pins in place

Step 3: Gather hair at the crown and secure with pins. Then place exposed pins in whatever shape or design you choose

I took 3 of these colored pins from Target and created a little snowflake or starburst look. So easy yet makes such a statement.

Look 2: Effortless Low Chignon

  • Save

This is probably my forever go-to hairstyle because it not only super chic but works great with dirty hair, which is me, like always! There’s so many ways to do a low bun or chignon but this has to be the most full proof way and has totally looks red carpet worthy.

Get the look:

Step 1: You can start with straight, wavy or curly hair..this works with all textures

Step2: Section hair into 3 equal parts leaving out any face fringe you may want

Step 3: Bring the center part to a low pony (feel free to tease at the crown first if you prefer extra volume) & twist into a messy bun and pin into place

Step 4: Twist each remaining side over the bun to give a really soft undone look

Look 3: Ribbon Headbands & Ponytails

  • Save

Ribbons aren’t just for wrapping presents! They’re making a big comeback and can be really elegant. They’re also not just for little girl hairstyles, although they’d make for the cutest mommy & me ‘do! Also works well with any hair length and can be worn as a ponytail too.

Get the look:

Step 1: If wearing your hair down I like to start with texture spray to help hold curls in place

Step 2: Create a little bit of a bouffant at the top & crown to give the look more of a sophisticated throwback look vs. a little girl finish

Step3: Take ribbon of choice, I find a satin finish to work the best for smaller bows, and tie it firmly to the front of your hair
