Time: 10 minutes

A multipurpose hairstyle that you can wear to all occasions cannot be simpler than a bouffant ponytail! This low-effort pony is quite easy to make and gives your hairstyle a retro feel, while making you look gorgeous and ready for just about anything.

You can make a bouffant ponytail with shoulder-length to long hair.

If you're styling freshly washed hair, spritz the roots around your crown with some high-lift creation hairspray. The product will give your strands a boost and make them easier to style. If you're working with second day hair, spritz some dry shampoo on the roots to make them look less greasy.

Using a fine-toothed comb, back brush your hair around the crown to create volume and height for the bouffant. When you're happy with the teased effect, spritz some strong hold hairspray to seal the shape. Comb and smooth out all your face-framing hair over the bouffant to create an even finish and secure it with bobby pins in half-up style. Gather the remaining loose hair at the back in a ponytail and secure it with elastic.

You can wear this bouffant pony to work, to a date or even to a party. Leave a few wisps out to create a romantic effect.

9. Fishtail Braid

Time: 10 minutes

Looking for an intricate hairstyle that amps up your charm? A lovely and laid back fishtail braid is just what you need. The good thing about this hairstyle is that it looks good on all women and flatters all face shapes. If you've never created a fishtail braid before, the hairstyle may look a little complicated. But we promise you, with a little practice, you'll be able to plait your hair like a pro!

You can create this hairstyle with straight, wavy or curly hair. While straight hair will give your plait a neat finish, slightly textured tresses will make your fishtail braid look effortlessly sexy.

If you have fine hair, apply some volume inject mousse through your hair to make your mane look fuller and brush your hair thoroughly to remove any knots and tangles before you begin.

Gather your hair on one shoulder and divide it into two equal sections. Take a small piece of hair from the outside edge of the left section and place it over the left section. Next, take a small piece of hair from the outside edge of the right section and cross it over the right section. (Remember: left goes over left and right goes over right)

Since there is practically no middle section in a Fishtail braid, you need to keep tucking the hair pieces from both side in the inner edge of their respective sections. Repeat this step till you have plaited the entire length of your hair, and secure the end with elastic. Et voilà – your fishtail braid is ready! Spritz some hairspray to tame flyways and you're good to go!

10. Wet Look Chignon

Time: 5 minutes

If you're too hesitant to try on a wet look hairstyle, a chignon is one of the safest bets for a first time trial. No matter what hair texture you have, you can easily sculpt your tresses in a chic chignon and lend them a wet look finish.

To create a wet look chignon, work in a small amount of hair styling gel through the lengths of your damp hair and comb it properly so that the product spreads evenly throughout your mane. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck and secure it in a ponytail with the help of elastic. Twist the pony like a rope and coil it around the base of the elastic and secure it with bobby pins to make the perfect chignon. Spritz some hairspray to tame flyways and you're ready!

If you're planning to sport a wet look chignon to an important board meeting at work, go a little easy on the glossy effect; instead of applying hair gel before styling, dab a tiny amount on your hair after you've created the chignon and spread it over with your fingers. To create a wet look updo for a party, you can also scrunch your hair before tying the chignon to lend your hairstyle a gorgeous textured finish.
