I've said it before, but I'll confess it again. I'm not skilled with doing anything fancy with my hair, which is why I rely on easy tools, tricks and cheats like the ones below in order to spice up my do:

Mia Beauty Tonytail 

Forget twisting and pinning hair around a ponytail, Mia Beauty has the easiest way to achieve the red carpet Hollywood looks above. Simply pick a shade that matches your hair color (5 colors available) and use as you would a typical hair tie. Hold the synthetic hair in one hand and gently twist it around your hair 2-3 times until desired tightness is achieved. That's it for a fabulous looking ponytail! This is especially good for those with shorter hair, which wouldn't be able to achieve this look naturally. $8.00 each – available at Walgreens, Harmon/Bed Bath & Beyond, ULTA and

Urban Halo Headbands
Having a bad hair day and not sure what to do?  Two words, Urban Halo! They are no slip, no sweat and no headache headbands, which aren't tight or bulky like typical headbands and they don't press on your ears or skull. These fun, fashionable and functional headbands are a fun way to accessorize your hair style. The wide, but light spandex band is great for masking roots too. I like to wear mine when I go hooping. Yes, I take a weekly Hula Hoop Fit class (it's amazing!). They are available in several designs for only $10-$20 depending on the style. In the pic below with my hoop, I'm wearing "Random Happiness" $10. You can see the complete Urban Halo collection at
