When you score a last-minute date, you don't have to resort to just throwing your hair into a pony. Here are some seriously hot styles that'll make him think you somehow spent hours primping for him, when really you spent most of the day watching a Real Housewives marathon before throwing your look together.

The Barely There Wave
"This look is really easy, which is great because wavy hair is in right now," says Luca Blandi, an NYC celebrity stylist who has worked with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Alyssa Milano, and Scarlett Johansson.
First, mist your hair with water and apply a dab of curl-enhancing cream to your damp hair. Now pull strands up into a centered ponytail at the crown of your head. "Twist and wrap the tail around the elastic into a loose bun and secure with bobby pins," Blandi says. "Then, blow-dry it in place for a few minutes to set the style." Once you unravel your hair and take the ponytail down, your tresses will have a soft wave to them, like Ashley Greene's.

Beachy curls like Dianna Agron's wow anywhere. For this look, you'll need dry shampoo, hairspray, and a one-inch curling iron.
First, divide your hair into about eight sections. "Wrap each one around the iron, holding it there for five seconds," Blandi says. Unwind, then hairspray each section for hold. Once you've curled your entire head, run your fingers through your curls to separate them. Lastly, massage the dry shampoo into your roots and scalp to amp up the volume.

"Braids are really in right now, and they're very easy to make," Blandi says. Kim Kardashian's high-drama chignon is a fresh take on the trend.
To score this look, first brush your hair back into a high pony on the crown and secure it with an elastic. Next, braid the tail. Gently coil the braid into a bun and fasten it in place with bobby pins.

This bed-head look is simple but so seductive. First, apply serum to your dry locks to tame flyaways and smooth your mane. Then, Blandi says, lightly flatiron your hair in inch-wide sections all over the head, flipping out ends instead of flattening them. For the finishing touch, dip your fingers in pomade and twist the ends of your strands. "You'll have the sleek, straight look with ends that are a bit more funky and tousled," he says.

The Classic Knot
For this sleek look, you'll need to first apply a dab of serum to your locks to tame them. Then, part your hair in the center and brush back the sides into a smooth, low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Next, twist the tail tightly (so the ends don't pop out) and wrap it around the elastic to create a slick bun, tucking the ends of the tail behind the bun. Secure it with bobby pins, and you've got uber-beauty Diane Kruger's sleek chignon.
