Updos can seem really tricky, to the point where you think they're probably being awkward on purpose. The good news is that with a few simple styling hacks, you can whip your hair up into something other than a ponytail in no time!

Spray your bobby pins with dry shampoo

Misting your pins with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT LongWear Spray adds grip which makes it easier to keep your hair in place.

Don't wash your hair

Dirty hair has way more traction than clean hair, fact. Use the LongWear Spray to absorb excess oil at the root, brush your hair through, and you're ready to style!

Try the easiest chignon in the world

Gather your hair into a low pony, but only pull it out halfway when you loop it through the elastic for the last time. Pin the half-pony to the back of your head, then arrange and pin the loose ends around it to create a messy chignon.

Use an elastic headband

Pop a headband on, then loop your hair over an under at the back until it's all up. Pin any loose bangs and major flyaways down, then finish with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.

Fishtail braid the easy way

To help keep your hair from escaping while your doing a fishtail braid, loosely tie it into a ponytail before braiding. Then, when you reach the ends, remove the tie and use it to secure the ends.

Fake a full ponytail

To get a thicker-looking ponytail, make like Jennifer Lopez and divide your hair into two halves, then secure each one right on top of each other. The extra space will make your hair look fuller and slightly longer.
