I love the first one on Christina Applegate. Looks casual but very pretty and elegant.

I don't know if you guys have tried these Whirl A Style bun makers before but they're great! You can get different sizes from extra large to mini for different hair lengths and thickness. I haven't used these since I got my hair cut back in March but I think it's long enough now that I could drag them out. Another great thing about them is when you take your hair down after using them, it's super curly and pretty and it's really easy to do:

There's also a different type here which are nice, too:

MsG's links reminded me of the Topsy Tail
http://www.asseenontv.com/prod-pages/topsy_tail.html

Which you can basically do without the tool if you pull your hair into a low ponytail, secure it with a band, then flip the tail up and through the hair at the nape of the neck, creating twists. You could do this in a half-up too.

I am loving all of the different styles everybody is doing. I tend to get stuck in my hair rut. Always down with a bit in the front pulled back a bit to the left with a flexi-8. But I am getting some good ideas. I have to check my arsenal of hair goodies...

Default French Braid Head Band

This is an option for long or very short hair. I sectioned out the part I wanted to braid and clipped the rest out of the way. Begin the french braid just behind one ear. I placed the braid near the part in the hair. I only added hair from the front as I was braiding. I secured it with a small pony tail holder for babies. I pinned this behind the ear with a u-shaped hair pin. Short hairs are trying to escape from the braid and I don't have a solution for this as of yet. Maybe I'll try to slick then down with gel. Adding styling wax before braiding didn't do the trick. Please excuse the odd expression.

Default My version of messy bun

I take the hair from the top of the crown and squish it down. Secure it with hair pins (u-shaped). Continue to add hair section by section, securing with hair pins until all the hair is up. Adding one section at a time, you can control how the front of the hair looks. When you pin up the hair, you can shape the ends in pin curl shapes (optional), I didn't do this.
Left-in progress
Middle- how it would look if you had long hair
Right- how it looks half up on short hair
Disclaimer-my camera ran out of batteries before I could get a good half up/ half down picture.

Val- If you don't have thin hair like me you don't have to worry so much about where to place the braid. If you have a sad teeny weeny braid like me, it needs to be toward the back of the first section.
