Get the Hair You Want with the Hair You Have
Just because you weren't born with your ideal mane doesn't mean you can't get it. Here, pro tips, product must-haves, and styling secrets for scoring locks you'll love and others will covet.

A quick updo for short hair. Grab a handful of bobby pins and take little sections of hair and twist them back leaving the ends sticking out so you get a messy chignon effect.
Spritz your bangs with a little volumizer at the roots and blow-dry them so they lay sideswept across your forehead.
Finish with a light, fine mist of hairspray to keep everything in place.
