  • Loose fishtail side braid
  • Low ponytail
  • Messy braided bun updo

The best way to prevent tangled hair is to keep it tied out of the way. There are many hairstyles that will help you do just that, but to make things really easy, we've handpicked three simple go-to looks that absolutely anyone can recreate.

All you need to do is decide which one to try first!

Side braid

A simple side braid, whether fishtail or a regular three strand look, keeps the hair woven together so it can't get matted by scarves or tangled by the wind. To minimize unwanted fuzz, mist your mane with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray before braiding.

Low ponytail

A low pony keeps the hair gathered in one place so it won't be disturbed by the elements. You can wear it sleek, curly or tousled, and it looks great with accessories. To achieve an undone wavy texture, spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray, then blow dry it in loosely twisted sections.


Ballerinas have been wearing buns since forever because they keep long hair up and under control. They also help to smooth and tame the hair at the same time. Keep flyaways under control with a veil of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.

The great thing about all of these styles is that you can mix and match. If you get bored with a regular bun, try a braided bun instead. If you get bored with a regular braid, try dividing it into pigtails... tangle prevention doesn't have to be boring!
