For folks who want something they don’t have to learn rocket science to pull off, here are some great options:

Sleek high pony - As spellbinding as a sleek high pony is, there’s no denying that it’s super easy to create. Just pull your hair into a high ponytail using generous amounts of gel and hairspray. Add your own personal flair with extras like a festive headband or regal jewels.
Crown braid - When you want to look angelic for a special occasion, there’s no better choice than a crown braid. Just pull your hair into a low ponytail, twist or three-strand braid the hair to the ends, wrap the braid around your head, and pin it to secure.
A Style That’s Super Fancy
Want to have the fanciest hair in every room you walk into? Choose one of the styles below:
Updo with face-framing pieces - There are few hairstyles fancier than the updo. This one features a French roll but leaves the front a little more relaxed with tendrils to frame the face and add personality.
Regal fishtail braid - Put your face at the forefront with a regal and timeless fishtail braid. It looks like a three-strand braid, but 100 times more intricate. Let yours hang to either side of your head or fall down your back.
A Style That’s Messy-Yet-Chic
If messy-chic is more your jam, try one of the following styles:
Messy high bun with bangs - We all love a good messy bun. And this one’s turned up a few notches. It features bangs that frame the face, adding some structure to the messiness of the bun.
Wash-n-Go - If your natural hair is textured (curly, wavy, coily, etc.), play it up! Wash your hair, rake in a moisturizer or gel with your hands, and let your hair air dry. Then, fluff, fluff, fluff to make it big and bold.
