Braided Bangs

For unruly bangs, a simple French braid will pull them away from the face. Maria Menounos gave the look a subtle twist with three braids. If the rest of your hair is unorderly, too, pull the remainder into a low side ponytail.

Sleek Ponytail
When crazy hair hits, the easiest solution is to straighten, as it's much easier to remove texture than to restructure texture that's already turned chaotic. Use a light-weight serum or oil to smooth the hair down into a low ponytail, like Jamie Chung's, then straighten the tail.

Crown Braid
Camouflage frizzy hair with a textured crown braid like Rashida Jones's. The texture in the braid makes natural flyaways throughout look intentional. Braid two sections of hair behind the ears and pull them over the top of the head, pinning in place.

Tight Topknot
Skip the messy bun and style a sleek topknot that won't budge (like Jaime King's) instead. The tighter the knot, the less maintenance throughout the day.

Double Texture
Unruly texture has become a runway staple the past few seasons. Amber Heard demonstrates an easy way to tame it: Apply a light oil to the midshaft of the hair and let the rest roam free.

Twisted Knots
Let Tina Fey's more complicated updo inspire you for a simple style. Grab an inch or two of hair, twist and pin in the back of the head, and continue until all of the hair is pulled back. The style is firm so it won't move, and it's funkier than a simple bun or French twist.

Braided Ponytail
Pull your hair into a tight braided ponytail like Victoria Justice's. Instead of straightening, apply a smooth mousse so strands don't move.

"Anything Goes" Updo
When all else fails, make a bad hair day look intentional. Pull the hair up haphazardly, like Diane Kruger's, and let flyways and texture follow their natural course. Don't forget the bold lip to add just a bit to balance the look.
