Now hair this: Take hair from work to play

Work

A side braid has personality but keeps things professional, said Charles Penzone stylist Jolee Doster. She suggested pulling hair into a low side ponytail with a clear rubber band before braiding; carefully cut the band after you’ve completed and tied off the braid and then gently pull the braid out a bit so it doesn’t look too tight. Trend tip: Make it a fishtail braid.

Date

You’ve worn that braid all day, so spice it up for your hot date by twisting it up into a side bun. Bobby-pin it into place. Trend tip: Switch up your bangs so it feels like a whole new hairstyle — swoop them if you wore them down during the day, and vice versa.

Nightlife

Time to drink and be merry. Let your hair down, girl. Doster suggested curling the hair with a small barrel iron before making the braid in the morning so when you take it down at night it has body and shape. Trend tip: Pull some hair back on one side and pin it into place with a flower or colorful comb. Wide headbands and jeweled barrettes are also hot this fall.
