As a gal who mostly had long hair all her life, I understand the notion of waking up too late and simply throwing your hair up into a mussy bun. Now that I have a bob haircut I have a harder time accomplishing this look. I beyond love my bob, but now it’s definitely harder to just throw my tendrils up and back. The good news is that it is still possible to rock a messy bun, or at least a great alternative of a half up messy topknot.  Just grab your refinish, pins, and hair ties and you’re good to go. Best part is that this look will take you less than five minutes to complete, so snooze away short-haired sisters!

I get it, by mid-day despite all your primping, you probably just want to throw your tendrils up into a basic bun and hope you don’t get invited out last minute. Or you could opt to beat the heat and humidity and wear a very in and cool hair do, like a braided top knot. This style will get your hair off your neck and keep you looking chic all day long.

Earlier in the week we took at look at a dip-dyed Balmain pony; now, in a season in which the brand is bringing fierce femininity to everything it does, we take a look at their runway versions of the look. Designer Olivier Rousteing primped his girl army with matching, uniformly slick, high ponytails. The look was smooth, long and super straight, creating a sexy warrior style. You too could rock a power pony: Work styling whip into hair and pull into a ponytail. Then make sure to wrap a section of hair around the elastic to conceal it organically and fashionably. Top it all off with some attitude and you’re set. To see more inspirational looks from the Balmain collection, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart
