25 new 'dos to rock for the school year: Pt. 1

Yes, your dreams are coming true: 5 whole weeks of hair you can easily do for school! Over the next three days, we’re giving ya 25 gorgeous new styles (OK, some oldies-but-goodies are thrown in there, too) to take the guesswork outta how to get good hair before catching the bus. Finally! Here are the first 8 must-try 'dos.
 
1. Blake’s messy braid
 

How-to: Part hair on the side and gather all your hair over to one shoulder. Take a 3-inch section of hair and braid, finishing with a clear elastic. Gather the rest of your hair into a larger, looser braid, and add the smaller braid on top. Combine both braids with one elastic at the end.


2. Double French Braids
 
How-to: Get directions for the classic French here, then change it up by parting hair on the side and creating two pigtail French braids. Finish with elastics or cute ribbons. Perfect for practice!


3. Braided top knot
 
How-to: Lightly tease hair all over and add a beach spray to add some extra texture and thickness. This’ll help keep the braid in place! Gather all your hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic. Braid your pony, and then wrap it around into a bun. Finish with bobby pins.

4. Lauren’s ladylike low bun

 


How-to: Start with a middle part. Pin back a small section on each side (tip: use pins that match your hair color to camoflauge them!). Then, gather the rest of your hair at the base of your neck. Twist into a tight bun and pin in place. Pull a few face-framing pieces loose for a romantic look.


5. Bitty braids

How-to: Get a boho feel by taking a teeny section of hair and creating a tiny braid, securing with a little elastic. Add 4-6 throughout your tresses, starting both on top of your head and underneath your hair.


6. Sleek and straight


How-to: Embrace your inner Kardashian and try out the bold middle part for a day. Use a comb to make it razor-sharp, and add a thermal heat protector to hair. Straighten ends with a ceramic flat iron to get a super sleek look.

7. Try a hair crown!
 
How-to: You saw them in the October/November issue, but we just can’t get enough! Try one worn as a regular headband with a low, tousled pony, or leave hair down and wear across your forehead.

8. Rachel’s mostly half-up look
 

How-to: Gather the top section of your hair to the back of your head and create a small twist. Pin twist in place. Pull front sections of your hair out of the style, and fix any strays in position with a spritz of hairspray.

Just a little animal print goes a long way. Leopard flats, zebra scarf and spotty shirt are all super cute solo, but best kept apart.
