Turn your down-'do into an updo!

So you’re meeting your crush for coffee after school, and you’re in need of a speedy and cute hair fix, stat? You wanna change up your everyday wash-n-go school style, but we know how tricky it can be to make your mane look awesome in a jiffy, especially with limited supplies. Follow our cheat sheet, below!

If right now your hair is: Half-up
Craft a quick: Low bun

Keeping your hair half-up, pull the bottom part of your hair and twist it into a low bun at the nape of your neck. Secure with an elastic or two and a few bobby pins you found at the bottom of your purse. Pull out a few pieces around your temples, like Blake, for a sweetly undone style.
If right now your hair is: Straight down
Craft a quick: High pony


Pull off Lea's sleek look by gathering all your hair back into a high pony just at the crown of your head. Extra credit: loop a 1-inch thick piece of hair around the elastic and tuck in the end. 


If right now your hair is: In loose waves
Craft a quick: Messy side braid
Whip up a soft and messy braid, like Crystal Reed's. Create a side part and start braiding hair just below the ear on one side, being sure to keep the weave loose. Let a few pieces fall out for natural texture.  
If right now your hair is: In a headband
Craft a quick: Topknot

Taking a hint from Hailee, push your headband a smidge closer to your forehead and pile your hair into a cute topknot on top of your head. Secure with an elastic and any bobby pins you can find.


If your hair right now is: In sweet spirals
Craft a quick: Side pony




We heart what Bella did here. Gather your tresses into a low side pony a couple inches below your earlobe. Let a few curls come loose for a relaxed, romantic effect. Pretty!
