Hair Bands
Hair BandsHeadbands are back and better than ever. If you're in a rush, throwing on a simple headband is a great way to incorporate some style and color in your everyday look. "In the same amount of time that it takes to throw on a baseball cap, you can choose a headband. And that's a really great, fresh look," Ken says.

Pony Up
Pony UpPonytails are a natural go-to when you don't have much time to get ready, but Ken says most women need to take them higher. "They wear it really low down, which is incredibly unflattering," he says "All women look great with this angle when the hair's been pulled up and away from their face."

Another way to add style to a ponytail is to backcomb the crown of your hair before using a rubber band. "That's a great little ponytail," Ken says.
