Fishtails are the creme de la creme of braids; they’re easy to create but look surprisingly intricate. The combination of simple technique and elaborate finish create fantastic DIY updos like the two looks shown here. Both of these styles require only basic braiding skills and a few bobby pins, but they look like they came from a high-end salon. Click the style notes for the surprisingly easy instructions. –– Laura Martin

We love any styles that emphasize a soft and carefree attitude. Which is why we’re especially into the easy waves adorned with an ethereal gold headband and adornments at the Valentino 2015 show. Highly romantic and delicately imperfect this style conjures our favorite memories of sun and sea. It’s a lovely deconstructed flowing style that’s easy to recreate and can be easily worn all year long. To learn how to emulate this ethereal style, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart

updo

One of the most common moans is that of the women or girl who wants hair like she’s just come out of the salon everyday. It is possible to recreate the magic of your stylist at home, but to do so the first step is to use professional quality products and tools. There’s a reason a pro won’t use any old product (bad ingredients dry out and damage hair) or pin (poorly made pins can cause snags and tears). So we asked Aziza Rasulova, stylist, updo and braid specialist at ARROJO NYC, to share here thoughts on some of these things. She’s starting with U shaped hair pins; get the scoop in the style notes.

There aren’t many hairstyles that look equally appropriate on a hike and at a wedding, but the braided bun pulls it off. The simple shape looks great messy or sleek. It has lots of nooks to adorn with flowers or pins, and enough texture to look interesting on its own. This look is so simple, anyone can do it, but it looks complicated enough that you’re sure to get compliments. Read on to learn how to create this versatile style. –– Laura Martin

To control cowlicks, tie down flyaways, fasten bangs to the side, or create an updo where would we be without the humble hair pin? But not all hair pins are the same. Like us, different pins have different things that they’re good at. The three main ones––bobby pins, large hair pins, and bun pins––each have their own personality, and are best used when they’re quirks suit the style you are going to create. For a simple guide that helps you always choose the right pin, click notes.
