Fast and cute hairstyle ideas

Dear Jenn,
I am sooooo not a morning person, I am always late to school and work and so doing my hair takes too long for me. I'd like to know if you have any do your hair quick tips for me. I have long brown wavy hair (not that the color matters). So do you have any fast and cute hairstyle ideas for me?

Dear Eileen,
The fastest way to fix any type of long hair is up in a ponytail. Now you just don't want any pony, you're going to want a CHIC pony.

So here are a few easy to do chic ponytails:
Here Beyonce sports a slick-back pony with loose curls.
J-Lo wears a side part pony with loose waves.

To Get This Look: The night before, put your hair in a pony, and apply mousse to the rest of your hair. Braid it and secure the end with a rubber band. In the morning, remove the rubber band and loosen the braid using your fingers. Side part your bangs and sleek them back using mousse or gel. Re-secure your pony, finger comb your hair and there you have it! 

Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson chics it out with side swept bangs and Carrie adds a side swept pony.

To Get This Look:  Loosely tease the top back part of your hair. Separate your bangs from the rest of your hair. Side part your bangs and let them hang on the sides. Then softly brush the rest of your hair into a low pony and secure with a pony holder or scrunchie of your choice. Or you can do like Jessica Simpson by taking a small part of your hair, wrapping it around the pony and secure it with a clear rubberband or bobby pin. Super chic!

Jessica Alba graces her pony tail with a slight poof.

To Get This Look: Lightly spray some hair spray on the front portion of your bangs and tease. Then lightly brush your hair back along with the rest of your hair into a pony making sure not to destroy the "poof". Lightly spray again to keep it in place, but don't over-do it with the spray, you want to go for a more naturally finished look.

Ciara achieves a super sleek look here by parting her hair down the middle,
 and taking it all back tightly into a mid pony. 

Kim Kardashian successfully pulls off wearing a pony with her evening dress.
She aced it with all her hair slicked back into a high wrap-around pony.

These are all looks you can achieve fast and with very little effort. Not only that, it gives your hair a healthy break from all those hot tools you might or might not be using. Have fun and don't be afraid to experiment with your own styles.
