How long is your hair? That would help! I have mid length hair (past my shoulders but not to my waist) that has zero volume on top but lots on the sides…it starts to get wavy around my chin which is really irritating to style. But for weddings/work events, I tend to go with either:

a deep side part and a low bun (literally a twist and hair tie and a few bobby pins for good measure)

straightening it, pulling the front bangs back, twist a bit clockwise and criss cross bobby pins so there is a tiny bump, but not Snooki-esque and hairspraying the crap out of it

or starting from a deep side part, braid the bang section of your hair to create a ‘headband’ effect. then you can either wear it in a low pony tail with the braid tucked in or a bun. sort of like this the “Lauren Conrad” signature braid, lol – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEr9JapOAFQ

Sock buns don’t work for me either, I’m probably an idiot but it never turns out. It’s so much easier just to twist my hair really tight and use tons of bobby pins, lol.

Omg I’m just like you. I cut my hair into a pixie because I hated it so much. Honestly the pixie is the only haircut I’ve ever had that I could handle

I love a messy, low, side bun!

First I get a ponytail holder and a bunch of bobby pins within easy access. Then I just let my hair fall naturally, then pull it over one shoulder and make a low side ponytail. Then take the pony and wrap it around it’s base loosely, holding with my hand. Then use my other hand to stick a whole bunch of bobby pins into the bun until it stays in place. Then maybe another bobby pin or two in the back, above the pony, just to hold in place any errant hairs that weren’t long enough to make it into the pony.

luluvohn:  I am terrible.  I wash my hair and brush it through.  I partially blowdry my part so it stays, then I flip my head upside down and scrunch it with my hands while continuing to blowdry my hair until it’s almost dry.  I then flip it back upright and straighten my part.  I usually end up with pretty good volume this way.

If I have somewhere really nice to go (i.e. wedding or interview), I get my hair cut and styled that day or the day before so my hair looks really good.  It only happens once or twice a year so it’s worth it for me not to have to worry about how to style it for important events.

How about this?


I do it with a thinner elastic that matches my hair so it pretty much disappears.  It’s a simple way to class up a ponytail so I think it would work well for you.

When my hair was long I wore it in a low fish tail braid that was super easy.  I watched a youtube video on it and it helped a ton.  I did it when my hair was wet and it made things even easier. <br />
