Swap your standard ponytail for one of these awesome-but-easy ways to perk up your 'do. (You're welcome.)

Tame textured second-day hair like Mandy Moore's with a simple twist and bobby pin.
Beyonce's side-swept low ponytail takes mere minutes to perfect. Curl the long bang around your finger, and blast with a tiny bit of hairspray for an all-day flounce that holds.
Brooklyn Decker's choppy bob is adorably sexy to begin with. Add in a little half-up, half-down pouf and a side part, and you've got a hairstyle that transitions seamlessly from office to cocktails.
Updos on short hair can be tricky and time consuming. Dress up a bob with a wet look, like Camilla Belle. Starting with wet hair, apply a pomade or gel with fingers. Brush it back with a thin-toothed comb to prevent any bumps.
To add easy shape to straight locks, create a side part like Dakota Fanning's and loosely pull the strands to the side, clipping in place.
Add interest to long, straight strands with a French braid above the ear, like Hailee Steinfeld wears here.
If you have blunt bangs like Jessica Biel's but don't have the time to style them, create a center part and pin them to each side. Let your hair fall over the pins to create the illusion of no bangs.
Switch up your blowout by brushing the hair out. See how it instantly opens up Julianne Hough's face without the use of any clips or bobby pins?
Without actually creating a ten-step, intricate updo, the braided bun makes anyone look more polished and put togetherÃ¢â‚¬”and in mere minutes. Just look at Sienna Miller.

Add faux layers instantly with a deep side part. The hair over Sandra Bullock's eyes creates the illusion of long side-swept bangs.
