1 This Finger-Twisted Faux Hawk

Surprise! This faux hawk is the work of a bunch of tiny, pinned buns, and absolutely zero extensions. So yes, you can even try this on short hair.

2 A Softly-Twisted Chignon

The key to this look: Messiness. Don't worry about grabbing perfect sections or smoothing flyaways—the looser, the better.

3 This Flat-Twist Updo

A simple hairline braid and a few pinned twists in back, and you've got a ridiculously gorgeous (and fast) updo.

4 This Twisted Ponytail

Quick and simple, this sleek ponytail requires only two side-twists and an elastic.

5 This Cuffed and Braided Updo

This intricate-looking protective style is deceptively easy: Create three braids down the center of your scalp, brush your hair into a bun, add extensions and some cuffs, and you're done.

6 These Half-Up Fishtail Braids

Not for the braiding novice—or the short-on-time—this Dutch Fishtail braid (yes, that's a thing) is a thing of holiday party dreams.

7 This Curly Chignon

A quick twist, a few strategically places bobby-pins, and you've got a surprisingly elegant-looking chignon.
