Need simple hairstyle ideas..

I have wavy/curlyish (I really have no idea what type) shoulder length hair that I never know what to do with. I can pretty much only do a basic pony or the easiest form of the messy bun (where you make a pony but don't pull the hair all the way through). I'd like to know how to do some cute styles using only bobby pins/clips (butterfly/jaw/any kind).

the problem is, I'm REALLY bad at doing hair. I need very good instructions.

I'm open for any style ideas (casual or dressy) but there is a style I'd like to learn how to do if anyone has ideas how..


I just can't figure out how they do their buns to make them so unique looking.

I'd love some tips, but like I said, I'm open to ANY suggestions for hairstyles!

You can try putting your hair half up half down. You just separate your hair from about where your ears are and you can use bobby pins or clips to hold your half up style in place.

As for unique buns, there are all sorts of ways to style them. I think some stylists put the hair in a ponytail first, then pin hair to eventually form a bun shape. So you would tie your hair all together, then take strands from the ponytail and pin them around the hair tie to hide the hair tie and form a shape.

Hope this was helpful and clear!
I have found lots on pinterest! Usually they link to step-by-step instructions too.

Here's something you can do with a clip. Gather your hair at the nape of your neck as if you were going to make a ponytail, but twist it and fold it up against the back of your head. Fasten with a clip. At the length you're at, this should leave the ends of your curls out at the crown of your head. I hope this made sense.
