All you need for a quick new look is a handful of run-of-the-mill bobby pins.

Step 1: Do the supermodel poof
Why fool around? Unless you’ve got short bangs, go straight to the supermodel poof. Gather a one- to two-inch section of hair from the forehead, brush it back, lift, twist, and push the resulting poof forward. Tease a bit from the back for extra height, and secure with bobby pins. A spritz of hairspray will help keep your look sleek.

Step 2: Create a half updo
Pull a section of hair from the forehead straight back and criss-cross two bobby pins to hold it in place at the back of the head. Then take a section of hair on the right and left sides of the head, cross them over the bobby pins, and pin them to the crisscross with upward-facing pins.

Bored of your bangs? Comb them back, secure with bobby pins, and cover them with a wide headband.

Step 3: Make an edgy, messy bun
Apply styling gel or mousse to damp hair, pull into a high ponytail, and divide and twist into three sections. Bring each section back to the ponytail base, and secure with a bobby pin. Loose hairs? That’s part of the style!

Did You Know?
The term 'bobby pin' was coined in the 1920s in reference to 'bobbed' haircuts then popular with the flapper set.
