Styling Tip: To fake a voluminous curly bob a la Swift at the 2011 CMT Artists Of The Year Celebration, curl your hair per usual, pull it back gently, and loosely secure an elastic at the ends. Holding on to the hair-tie, flip your hair under and pin the elasticized part to the nape of your neck. Fluff and even hair out on the sides for lots of body!

7) Braids for Day(s)

Styling Tip: To make ultra-romantic braided hairstyles more daytime appropriate, opt for sharp separates with a youthful sensibility over super-dressy styles, like flared frocks.

5) High Bandwith

Styling Tip: With the right accessories, even a classic ponytail can look like an elegant retro updo. Make like Taylor and curl your hair before securing it back into a pony. Spritz your locks with a light-hold hairspray, then accent the look with a playful headband in a funky color palette—like mustard and tomato!

4) Ride the Waves

3) Vintage Romance

Styling Tip: To recreate this floaty faux bob, allow straight hair to dry naturally, then brush locks thoroughly with a natural bristle brush. Next, spritz hair with a multi-purpose product like Bumble and Bumble's Does It All Styling Spray ($14 at Sephora.com) to soften and give hair plenty of hold. Create a deep side part and secure swooping bangs with a bobby pin. Finally, pull hair back into a very loose, low ponytail, twist it under and pin into place.

2) Keep It Classic

Styling Tip: To get the perfect classic bun every single time, we swear by Conair's Bun Maker ($4.99 at Ulta.com). The 6-piece kit contains U-pins, an elastic, and a hair donut—all for under five bucks!
