3 Simple and Elegant Day-to-Night Hairstyles

Good hairstyles and easy up-dos start with a great cut. Starting with a fresh and flattering haircut is like an artist starting with a blank canvas – you can do anything with it. Once you get that covered, you can go from the office to a night on the town lickety-split and still look fabulous.

1--Tousled Tresses
Wavy hair looks great for the daytime, especially in the warmer months. A windswept voluminous look is easily achieved if you use a light spritz of wave or beach-hair hairspray and then scrunch your hair in your fist. This non-fussy daytime look can be turned quickly into a nighttime look with the use of a clip or hair-tie. Pull your hair back loosely with the clip, or create a chic loose bun at the nape of your neck with the tie.

2--Stick Straight and So Sleek
If you typically wear your hair very straight, keeping it down during the day results in a great look. You can easily take your hair into evening mode by creating a deep side part, and pulling it back into a low ponytail. Add something extra to your look by wrapping a piece of hair from the bottom of your ponytail around the hair tie, therefore concealing it. Tuck the end of the piece back into the tie or pin it underneath the ponytail.

3--Brilliant Braids
Whether large or small, braids are a great day-to-night look. Wearing a French braid during the daytime not only keeps your hair back during the day, but it means you are priming your hair for some awesome waves when you undo that braid come night. A small, singular French braid starting at your part and continuing down your hairline above your forehead can be worn day and night, when paired with the right outfit or accessories. A few small braids from your part can give you a relaxed Boho chic look for daytime, but also creates a great textured look when you pull them back into a ponytail at night.
