Would it kill you to take just a second?

Words cannot express how utterly distressing it is to see a woman in front of me who has whipped her lovely
strands, that are, dare I say it? Still wet, and she piles it into a "messy bun," or a "ponytail"
Ugh! What are you thinking?  I know that life is busy, and maybe you didn't have a minute to yourself this morning. But you are ruining your hair! I always tell my clients, if you don't have time in the morning to shower and ready yourself, shower at night, put all your products in, and let it airdry throughout the night. That way, in the morning you can 'rough' dry it, to get the bedhead out, and spritz it with a volumizer or protector and you can style and go. WA LA!
Here are a couple ideas for those of you who NEED to have a ponytail in, --cough, cough, (all those who insist on wearing your hair long, but we all know you don't have the time or patience to actually take care of it or style it.)

I love this look, it is sooo simple, leave your swept bangs over to the side, backcomb your hair from behind your bang section, and crown of head, make sure to use a soft bristle brush, such as a Mason Pearson to brush over, No One should ever know you do this, this is a secret!-- then pull your hair into a low pony. Take a piece from your pony tail and wrap it around the base, secure with pins underneath so noone knows. This should look like it is held with your hair (that you have wrapped around) and nothing else. Like Magic! :)
Rachel Bilson's center part, and loose pieces through the front create a very romantical look. This is so pretty, very few can actually pull off a center part.

Super Sleek- Super Low view on this look. I don't suggest this to the everyday woman, It's a bit too polished. But this is definitely an option for a night out.
