How to Make Cute Everyday Hairstyles
It’s easy to get into the habit of wearing your hair the same way every day, but with so many different styles to choose from, there’s no reason why you can’t find a new ’do. Whether your hair is short or long, curly or straight, or anywhere in between, you can find cute, easy hairstyles to change up your look no matter where you’re going!
Creating Ponytails and Up-Dos
Smooth your hair back and secure it with an elastic for a basic ponytail.Ponytails are one of the most versatile hairstyles you can wear, and they’re the starting point for a number of other styles. All but the shortest hair lengths will work in a ponytail.
- Try wearing your ponytail near the base of your neck for a casual, romantic look. You can even consider wearing a low ponytail with a middle or side part.
- Mist your hair with a texturizing spray and pull it back roughly for a modern, messy ponytail. You may also want to tease your hair slightly by combing it backwards for added volume.
- Straighten your hair, then comb it into a sleek ponytail. Use a bit of serum, hair gel, or hairspray to tame any flyaways. Wrap a small section of hair around the elastic and secure it with pins for an elegant look.
Create a ponytail, then wrap your hair around the base to make a bun.To make a perfect ballerina bun, comb your hair into a neat ponytail at the top of your head just above the crown. Secure the ponytail with an elastic, then wrap the length of the ponytail in a spiral around the elastic.
- Tuck the ends of your ponytail under the bun, then secure the whole thing with 3-7 bobby pins, depending on the length and thickness of your hair.
- Divide your hair into 2 ponytails to create playful double buns. You can make these on the top of your head or down low near the nape of your neck. Use the teeth or tail of a comb to create a clean part between the buns.
- Pile your hair roughly into a bun at the crown of your head or behind one ear to create a trendy messy bun. For a more piecey look, spray your hair with texturizing spray first.
Pull back only the top section of your hair for a half-up half-down look.Wearing your hair half-up is a great way to change up your style while keeping your hair out of your face. Use the end of a rat-tail comb to part your hair horizontally from ear to ear, then gather the top half of your hair and secure it with an elastic.
- This style works on almost any hair length, and it can be worn on straight, wavy, or curly hair.
- Braid small sections of your hair to add more interest to this look. You could braid a few pieces in the top half of your hair before you pull it up, or braid a section behind your ear and leave it down.
- Add a small barrette just above your hair elastic for an extra feminine touch.
Create an up-do to show off curly hair by pinning it back loosely.Pull your hair into a loose ponytail and secure it with an elastic, but leave a few curls free around your face. Twist your hair and pin it to the back of your head with a large clip or several bobby pins, then sweep your remaining curls back over the top of the twist and pin them in place.
- When pinning the top section of your hair, try to leave it as loose as possible so you don't flatten out your curls.
- Finish this look by placing a pretty comb or barrette behind one ear.
- Don't worry if a few tendrils fall out of this up-do. This look works best with a few stray curls.
Braiding Your Hair
Gather your hair into a ponytail and braid it for a simple style.Comb your hair back into a ponytail and secure it with an elastic.Divide your hair into 3 sections. Cross the left section (A) over the middle piece (B), then the right section over what was originally the left section (C). Then, cross the new left section (B) over section A in the middle, then cross section C from the right over section B.
- Continue this all the way down the hair, then secure it with an elastic.
- For a sleek, smooth style, add a little hair gel to your hair before you braid it.
- To make a messier braid, gently loosen it with your fingers after securing it with an elastic.
Pull your hair to one side and braid it loosely for a romantic look.A messy side braid looks soft and feminine, and it’s the kind of style that looks better as the day goes on and little tendrils come loose. Gather your hair behind one ear, then braid it loosely in a traditional braid and secure it with an elastic.
- Gently tug the individual plaits of your braid outwards to loosen them. This will make your hair look like it has more volume.
Braid a small section of hair and gradually add more for a French braid.Section out a small piece of hair at the front of your head near the hairline. Twist this section 2-3 times in a regular braid, then use your index fingers to add additional hair to the braid. Add more hair every time you criss-cross strands. Keep doing this until you’ve added all of your hair to the braid, then secure it with an elastic.
- The trickiest part of French braiding is holding your hair. Try holding a section between your second and third fingers, grasp another section between your first and second fingers, and hold the third section with the palm of your hand.
- Try parting your hair down the center and making 2 French braids to create texture and contrast in your hairstyle.
Braid just your bangs to add interest to any hairstyle.You can choose to do a classic braid or a sideways French braid with your bangs to keep them out of your face and to add a pretty look to a plain hairstyle. Secure the braid with pins to hold it in place.
- If you don’t have bangs, just braid the section of hair that frames your face.
- This is a great style to choose if you are growing out your bangs.
Styling Short Hair
Add gel and slick your hair back for a cool, intense look.You’ll be giving off rebel-without-a-cause vibes with this slicked-back hairstyle, and it takes almost no time to create. When your hair is damp, work a dime-sized drop of gel through your hair. Comb your hair away from your face using a fine-toothed comb or a soft brush, then let it dry!
Create a deep part and comb your hair to the side for a polished look.Use the end of a rat-tail comb to create a deep side part starting above one eyebrow and running to the crown of your head. Comb your hair so that it lays to the side, or tuck it behind your ears if it's long enough.
- Depending on the style you want to achieve, you may want to add a little gel to hold your hair in place, or you may want to leave it more tousled if you’re going for a casual look.
Curl your hair with a hair straightener if you want waves.Using a curling iron on short hair can create unfortunate-looking ringlets. To create waves with a hair straightener, work with 1 in (2.5 cm) pieces of hair. Close the flat iron over the piece of hair, then twist your wrist back and forth as you run the straightener down the strand. This will create gentle, beachy waves.
Spray short hair with texturizing spray and muss it up for a piecey look.Textured styles look great on short hair. When your hair is damp, spritz it all over with a texturizing spray, which will help create definition in your hair style. Ruffle your hair with your fingers to separate out individual pieces, then let your hair air dry.
Adding Hair Accessories
Slide a headband about inch (1.3 cm) from your hair line.Headbands are extremely versatile. Depending on their style, they can look athletic, youthful, or glamorous. Most headbands look best if they are worn close to the hairline, and they look great on everything from super-short to very long hair.
- If you have a problem with your headband slipping, try teasing the hair behind your headband to hold it in place. Hold the hair straight up, then comb it backwards with a fine-toothed comb. Gently smooth down your top layer of hair to hide the teased section.
Pin the front section of your hair back with a clip or barrette.If you want to wear your hair down but you don't want it getting into your face, you can use a clip or a barrette to secure face-framing pieces behind your ear. Just pull the hair back away from your face, then hold it in place with your clip.
Tuck a flower or bow into an updo for a feminine look.Side buns and low or side ponytails in particular look pretty and romantic when you add a flower or a bow to the style. Create the style you want, then nestle the accessory into your hair close to the elastic. If you need to, secure the flower or bow with bobby pins.

QuestionWhy are pigtails only for young girls and teen girls?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt's simply a hairstyle usually associated with that age group. But, hey, if you like 'em, wear 'em!Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I want straight hair without damaging it?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerUse a heat protector to safeguard your hair against damages before using an iron.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I have really thick hair and I want to wear a headband?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerWhen in a headband, it tends to spread out over the headband, and look weird. You can fix that by pinning back a puffy section of your hair on either side of your headband.Thanks!
QuestionHow can I make my hair look good down when my hair is as flat as a pancake?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou can try curling it, or try a cute headband or accessory. You could also try changing your hair products. If you can afford them, higher-end shampoos and conditioners (Alterna is a great brand) will tend to leave your hair much more healthy and full than drug-store products. Otherwise, stick to the most simple, natural, no-fuss products you can find. Whatever you do use, make sure to rinse it out of your hair really well, because product residue can really weigh down and flatten the hair. And finally, remember that straight hair is very popular, and most people will think it looks good even if it's flat.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I do a French plait?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerStart as if you are just doing half up / half down and do one twist of the plait, then you get the two pieces of the plait on the outside, gather a bit of hair from each side of your head, add that to the two pieces of hair on the outside, and do another twist of the plait. Keep repeating it until you get to where the hair on your head stops growing and just normally plait it from there. You can start higher up on your head or lower down.Thanks!
QuestionHow can I keep my pony tight?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerUse two bands to secure your pony.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I want a hairstyle for teenagers?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerThese styles are appropriate for teens too.Thanks!
QuestionHow can I keep my bangs back in a tight bun without hairspray or bobby pins?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTuck your fringe or any extra hair (that will not fit in the bun) under the hair on the top of your head. This adds volume and keeps the bangs back.Thanks!
