The easiest style of all, the ponytail is always a go-to! Tie up your tresses with a simple band that matches your hair color. Leave it at that, or add some volume by curling the strands of your pony for a night out or special event.

Buns are back and here to stay! To achieve this gorg style, put your hair into a low ponytail and secure with a band. Starting from the nape of your neck, twist your pony down to the ends; keeping the twist intact, wrap it around the hairband in a circular motion until you have formed your bun. Secure the bun with bobby pins to keep it steady.

One of the simplest ways to add some instant style a braid or two! Leaving your hair down, braid a one-inch section of your hair on either side of your part; pull each braid back so they meet in the center of the back of your head. Finally, secure the ends with bobby pins for a look that’s boho-beautiful.

When in doubt, try some texture! Many hair care brands carry texturizing sprays that help to create those beachy waves that celebrities wear so well. To glow like Kate, while your hair is damp, apply a liberal amount of spray from root to tip, and then flip your hair over. Using your fingers and a diffuser hairdryer attachment, gently blow-dry your hair. When dry, flip your hair right side up and instant waves will be upon you!
