CUTESY NAME: BEACH HIPPIE

Time it took us: 2 minutes

Works on:
· Medium or long hair
· Unwashed, dry, slept-on hair

Stuff to have handy:
· Large bobby pins
· 1-inch curling iron
· Shine spray
· Light-hold hairspray

How to:
Step 1
Flip hair over and lightly spritz hairspray on underside. Flip upright and spray on the top. Finger-tousle as it dries.
Step 2
Gather your bang-hair area and bobby-pin it out of the way so you can style the rest of your hair first.
Step 3
Curl 1-inch sections (away from your face). Start wrapping your hair around the iron at ear level, not above. And leave your ends out of the curling iron.
Step 4
Unpin the bang section and curl as you did the rest of your hair.
Step 5
Insert spread fingers into hair at the nape of your neck. Shake your hair (but do not run fingers through) to make the curls messy.
Step 6
Now pin back a piece of hair on each side of your part. (Remember, messy = good.) Secure them together with a bobby pin and mist with shine spray.

CUTESY NAME: PIN CURL TWIST

Time it took us: 5 minutes

Works on:
· Medium or long hair
· Sorta dirty hair

Stuff to have handy:
· Bobby pins
· Hairspray

How to:
Step 1
Brush out a 2-inch-wide bang section and secure back with two bobby pins. Loosen a bit with your fingers by tugging at the hairline.
Step 2
Now you're left with a section of hair over each ear. Run your index finger from behind your left ear up to the crown of your head. Smooth this section of hair into a low ponytail behind your left ear then twist the pony twice toward the back of your head. Secure the remaining tail with bobby pins, then repeat on the right side. Connect the two twists with a bobby pin.
Step 3
And that leaves the always fashionable "mullet" at the nape of your neck. You can leave it like that. We're all done.
Step 4
Just kidding. Back to the mullet. Hold your left index and middle finger under the bobby pins in Step 2, and roll a messy 1-inch section of hair up around your fingers to create a coil. Pinch it, slip it off your fingers and secure with a bobby pin. Don't attach it to the twists in Step 2 or you'll pull them out. Repeat with remaining hair until it's all pinned up.
Step 5
Mist with hairspray.

CUTESY NAME: SIDE-SWEPT BUN

Time it took us: 5 minutes

Works on:
· Medium or long hair

Stuff to have handy:
· A hair stick, or bracket thingy like the one pictured
· Shine serum or spray
· Comb
· Hair elastic

How to:
Step 1
Make a deep side part with a comb. Apply a bit of shine serum all over and comb through to tame flyaways.
Step 2
Gather your hair into a low side pony behind the ear opposite your part. Secure with a hair elastic.
Step 3
Wrap the tail up toward your ear, then under the pony (into a bun), leaving the ends free.
Step 4
Pierce the bun with your hair stick, making sure to thread one end of the stick through the elastic before letting it pop out the other side. This holds the bun in place.

    CUTESY NAME: HELLO, SAILOR

    Time it took us: 10 minutes

    Works on:
    · Medium or long hair
    · Dirty-ish hair -- a day after shampooing

    Stuff to have handy:
    · 1-inch curling iron
    · Bobby pins
    · Hairspray

    How To:
    Step 1
    Make a side part. Starting with the bigger side, gather front section from the ear to your part and smooth it so the hairline is bump-free. Then twist several times upward toward your part. (See inset photo No.1.)
    Step 2
    Secure the hair along the line of the twist with several bobby pins. At the end of the twist, criss-cross bobby pins to anchor the twist in place. Repeat on the smaller side.
    Step 3
    Divide the hanging hair in back into 1-inch sections and wrap around a curling iron. Hold the barrel vertically to create a spiral.
    Step 4
    Once all sections are curled, mist with hairspray and shake your hair gently to loosen the curls.

    CUTESY NAME: HIGH-VOLUME PONY

    Time it took us: 5 minutes

    Works on:
    · Medium or long hair
    · Dirty hair

    Stuff to have handy:
    · Headband
    · Comb
    · Hair elastic
    · Clip (to hold hair out of the way)

    How to:
    Step 1
    Divide hair from ear to ear over the top of your head. Clip that front section out of the way.
    Step 2
    At the crown of your head, take a two-inch section of the remaining hair and tease the area near your scalp to create the bouffant behind the headband. Messy is fine; we're about to cover it up anyway.
    Step 3
    Un-clip the front section and smooth it back over the teased area, gathering all your hair into a low pony. Reserve a one-inch section of your longest hair and secure the rest with an elastic.
    Step 4
    Wrap the reserved hair around the hair elastic and secure underneath with a bobby pin.
    Step 5
    Slip on a headband.

    CUTESY NAME: MILE-HIGH CURLS

    Time it took us: 5 minutes

    Works on:
    · Any length -- super cute option for short hair
    · Natural wave or curl
    · Dirty hair -- day or two after shampooing

    Stuff to have handy:
    · Slim, jeweled headband
    · Bobby pins
    · 1/2-inch curling iron
    · Shine spray

    How to:
    Step 1
    Pump up any flattened or low-volume curls on top. To do this, wrap sections of hair around the barrel of a curling iron, starting at the root. (No need to get the ends or to use the clamp.)
    Step 2
    Loosely grab chunks of hair in back, then bobby pin and spray, tucking the ends under so you don't see straight pieces.
    Step 3
    Slip on a slim headband, but keep it close to your hairline. We have it about an inch or so back.
    Step 4
    Top with shine spray. The overall effect should be touchable and fun, not too perfect.

    CUTESY NAME: WAVY POMPADOUR

    Time it took us: 5 minutes

    Works on:
    · Any length
    · Wavy/curly hair or thick, straight hair

    Stuff to have handy:
    · Bobby pins

    How to:
    Step 1
    Loosely bobby-pin a two-inch bang section back. Secure it closer to your hairline than to the crown of your head to keep this look sophisticated, not preppy.
    Step 2
    Those with high volume are now looking at a major case of "triangle head." To slim down the hair's silhouette, try this trick with your sides: Gather a small section of hair from just above your ear on each side, leaving some hair loose over your ear (see picture). Twist these sections, rolling them down toward your ear, and secure with a bobby pin. The roll should be pretty tight to the head. Repeat on the other side for the full de-triangulation effect.
    Step 3
    Mist with shine spray

    Step 2
    Secure tightly into a ponytail. Smooth any strays by lightly combing them into place.
    Step 3
    Use bobby pins to anchor your curls to the sleek hair surrounding the elastic to camouflage it.
    Step 4
    Give an overall shot of hairspray to finish

    CUTESY NAME: PIN-UP CURVES

    Time it took us: 10 minutes

    Works on:
    · Curly or wavy hair in any length
    · Straight-haired girls can pull it off too with five extra minutes of curling iron time

    Stuff to have handy:
    · 1-inch curling iron
    · Bobby pins
    · Hairspray
    · Clip (to keep hair out of the way)

    How to:
    Step 1
    Run your index fingers from mid-ears toward the back of your head until they touch at the back of your head. Pin up the top half of your hair to get it out of the way for now.
    Step 2
    Gather the bottom of your hair at the base of your neck. Now, make a "roller" out of two fingers, and fold your hair up to the clipped section. (See inset photo No.1.) Bobby-pin it in place. Messy is fine; the pins will be hidden by the curls you'll make on top.
    Step 3
    Remove the top clip and free the sides of your hair. Re-clip the top bang section.
    Step 4
    Pull a side section down and back (the direction is important), then twist upward and secure with bobby pins so it lays flat. (See inset photo No.2.) Repeat with other side.
    Step 5
    Now comes the fun part: curls. Holding the iron horizontally, wrap a 1-inch section of hair from the crown of your head around the barrel. After five to 10 seconds, unwind it and stretch the curl back 'til it hangs over the bobby pins from step 1. Be sure to break up the curl a little with your fingers.
    Step 6
    Repeat until you've curled the whole top section and mist with hairspray.

    CUTESY NAME: BRAIDY LADY

    Time it took us: 5 minutes

    Works on:
    · Medium to long hair
    · Wavy, curly or straight
    · Freshly blow-dried or unwashed hair

    Stuff to have handy:
    · 1 small clear hair elastic
    · 4 small bobby pins
    · Texturizing cream
    · Light hold hairspray

    How to:
    Step 1
    Part hair where you usually do. Side or middle will work.
    Step 2
    Grab a section on each side of the part. (Section should be about as wide as two fingers.)
    Step 3
    Loosely braid both sections toward the back of your head where they will meet. Apply a dab of texturizing cream or pomade to the bottom of each braid so it doesn't unravel easily.
    Step 4
    Use a clear elastic to secure both braids together in back.
    Step 5
    Carefully slide the bobby pins in under the braid, along your scalp. This will keep the loose braids from falling out.
