It can be tough to quit the ponytail. We know easy updos exist, but the ponytail is so tempting. A single hairband, a few twists of the wrist, the lie we tell ourselves when we don’t pull our hair all the way through and think we’re making a “messy bun.” The ponytail is the go-to hairstyle for women running late, women juggling making breakfasts with early morning emails, and women who simply don’t feel like wrestling with the flat iron another day.

Easy updos: Alternatives to the ponytail

One of the easiest ways to banish the perma-pony is to become familiar with a handful of other easy updos. Photos are the first step in finding a signature updo — or two — you can quickly pull together when you want your hair off your neck and face. Beauty bloggers take the photos a step further by offering step-by-step instructions and video tutorials.
