1) Perfect for a workday a.m. emergency, this quick chignon looks pulled-together and chic, even if you run into a meeting and it's still wet. To start, towel-dry hair, then comb in volumizing foam (we love Style Sexy Hair Blow It Up Volumizing Gel Foam, $18) from roots to ends, says Guido Palau, the Redken creative consultant who created it. Blast front section only with a blow-dryer for a few seconds to get it smooth.
2) Clip blow-dried piece to the side and tie rest of hair into a high ponytail. Swirl into a chignon; bobby-pin flat against head. Unclip front portion and pull it back, wrapping it over the chignon from the top. Pin in place using Goody Classic Pearlized Metallic Bobby Pins, $4 for 36.

3) Mist all over with strong-hold finishing spray, such as Pantene Pro-V Stylers Shaping Extra Strong Hold Hairspray, $5, to head off frizzies, then face the world (with enough time to grab coffee). Our p.m. trick: If you're headed out after work, undo the chignon and twist pieces away from your face to shape soft waves.
