Hair, headbands and buns - oh my!

Don't you love the feeling after you've left the salon and you're hair is just perfect? It's blown out so it's straight but swing-y or it's pulled up into a chignon and looks just right?

Chantel Simmons, hair editor for The Kit always has amazing hair. She was recently on The Marilyn Denis Show and showed some easy tips on how to have great hair everyday - no stylist required.

I really liked the looks she showcased. My two favourites were the headband and the messy chignon.

I thought after Gossip Girl, no self-respecting woman would ever be able to wear a headband again without comments related to Blair Waldorf following her wherever she went. This look is much fresher than the wide headbands that were frequently featured on Gossip Girl a year or so ago.

The second look was the messy chignon (aka the bun).

Whenever I try to do a bun, it always looks messy - and not in a good way. I can't quite hide all the bobby pins, pieces of hair keep falling out and it looks more gym than glamour.

I'm hoping with Goody Spin Pins ($7), my bad, messy buns will turn into good ones.

Will you be adding one of these looks to your hair repertoire?

What are your secrets for great-looking hair without a lot of effort?
