25 new 'dos to rock for the school year: Pt. 2

Love our first how-to on quick 'n' cute classroom hair? We're dishing out 8 more stylish school strands in our second installment of the tresses trilogy. Epic!


9. The barrette is back!

 
How-to: Gather hair over to one shoulder in a tight ponytail. Secure with barrette, and brush out ends of hair. Smooth on a drop of serum to flatten flyaways.

10. Emma’s relaxed waves
 

How-to: Before bed, wash hair and comb in a curl booster if desired. Braid hair all over in 2-3 inch sections, and let dry over night. Take out braids in the morning and finger-comb. Spritz with hairspray to make the style last longer.
 
11. Messy princess bun
 
How-to: Spritz in a volumizing spray or mousse. Pile hair into a messy bun on top of your head. Tease out a few pieces and add a sparkly skinny headband for extra sparkle. Who says you can’t wear a tiara to school?

12. Bouncy pony
 

How-to: Get the perfect pony whether you’re a cheerleader or not. Add a few drops of Moroccan Oil to get sleek tresses, then comb hair back into a ponytail at the crown of your head. Curl the whole pony with one quick roll-up of your curling iron. Set with hairspray. Bow optional!

13. Pretty peacock feathers
 
How-to: Skip the annoying clip-ins with this hidden feather headband. Genius!

14. Low twist
 

How-to: Part hair as normal, then start twisting the hair on one side of your head around to the back, keeping with the hairline, almost like you’re creating a French twist. Go section by section, gathering more hair with each twist. Bring around to the opposite side so you’ve created a coil in the back and pull ends of hair into a low pony. Secure with an elastic, and tie off with a pretty ribbon.

 
15. Whitney’s bent ends
 

How-to: Use a curling iron to loosely curl just the ends of your hair, not rolling up higher than the bottom of your earlobe. Finger-comb so curls aren’t too perfect. Finish with a dry spray wax to add more texture.
 
16. Beribboned braid
 
How-to: Start by gathering hair into a low pony. Secure with an elastic and add a long ribbon (the same length of your pony) by tying it around and tucking into the elastic. Then divide hair into two sections and use the ribbon as the third. Braid as normal, and tie off end with another elastic.
