For a new twist, try a halo-effect coif. Start with freshly washed hair and add gel for hold, then blow-dry. Apply a smoothing serum to tame fly-aways and boost shine.
Pick up a tiny section of hair at the right temple, just back from the hairline. French braid the hair sideways across the opposite temple, leaving a few wisps in front. Selby recommends that you "incorporate the braid end into the rest of your 'do, be it a chignon, bun or ponytail."
