Try This Effortless, Glamorous Half Updo

We all want our hair to look as flawless as Kim Kardashian's: perfect ponytails, shiny sock-buns, and effortless updos anyone? This glamorous celebrity always looks as if she just stepped straight out of a hair salon, and the odds are she probably did. Stop sitting in envy, and style your hair to look as fierce as Kim K's with this quick, half updo that adds a bit of flair to your everyday look. Perfect for a day at the office, a night out, or a coffee date with your friends, this style can be as casual or as fancy as you want it to be.

Get hair as sleek and stylish as Kims all on your own, without a million-dollar personal glam squad. All you need are a few simple products you most likely already have lying around your bathroom at home. Before you get started, you'll need to round up some bobby pins, a hair straightener, a few clear elastic hair ties, and strong-hold hairspray.

1. Start with sleek, straight hair. Part it behind the ears, toward the top of the head. Tease it at the roots for maximum height. Secure it into a ponytail with an elastic.

2. Take a section of hair, parting it from your left earlobe to the ponytail.
