Retro Head Scarves

This might be the chicest solution ever to third-day hair that needs a little more help than dry shampoo.

Parted Ponytails

Sleek, low ponies were all over the runways—and it’s hard to argue with a style that takes 20 seconds to do. (Just run some smoothing serum through your locks, grab a hair tie and you’re good to go.)
