When it comes to popular looks, simple is by far the style that tops them all as simplicity is timeless. However, simplicity doesn’t refer to neglecting your locks, but opting for an enhanced textured style that exudes naturalness and that appears to be perfect by nature. Go for a casual glam effect and opt for softly textured waves or a messy, swished back style that will help you achieve a fresh and fabulous casual look. Keep your locks looking perfect with your favorite texturizer and enhance the shine of your locks with a bit of shine spray as this will help glamorize your look a bit more.

Stylish Ponytails

Ponytail hairstyles are by far the lowest maintenance hairstyles that can ‘pack a punch’ every time, making you attract plenty of attention without spending too much time in front of the mirror, and this fall 2012 season the ponytail is back! With versatile styles such as low centered, high and swished to the side, ponytails can help you achieve a lovely look without any effort. The ponytail is a perfect ’emergency’ hairstyle look as it takes merely minutes to gather the hair in a ponytail and secure it as desired, so keep your locks sleek or with a little bit of volume and let your hair look amazing from day to evening.

Achieve a sensational, iconic look this fall season by switching-up your parting as deep side partings look amazingly stylish. Whether your hair is short, medium or long, deep side parts look adorable, especially if the hair is given a sleek, flawless look. Create the deep side part on the side you feel most comfortable with and keep your hair sleeked back into a stylish updo, a low ponytail or simply run your hands through your hair and keep your locks loose, allowing them to caress your features. This is a look that is both elegant, vintage yet with a little bit of an edgy vibe and universally flattering, so dare to go a bit bolder by switching things up!

Fancy Braids
