The Classic Ponytail

The ponytail is one of the quickest and easiest hair styles for shoulder-length hair. To create a ponytail, pull all of your hair to the back of your head, and secure it with a hairband. Other variations include the side ponytail; the high ponytail, created near the top of the head; pigtails, which are ponytails on both sides of the head; and the low ponytail, which is pulled back at the base of your head.

Free and Loose

A quick and easy hairstyle is to wear your hair down. If hair is combed and clean, it can be beautiful whether your hair is straight, curly or wavy. If you don't like the way your hair looks naturally, then straightening, curling or crimping are options for a quick way to control wild locks. Make sure you use a small amount of oil on your hair if it is frizzy. This will also help your hair shine when it is styled.

The Amazing Braid

Braiding your hair is another quick style for shoulder-length locks. Braids come in all shapes and sizes. The classic three-strand braid is one of the easiest options. To create a three-strand braid, start by dividing all of the hair into three sections. Cross the right strand over the middle. It will now become the middle. Then, cross the left strand over the middle. That strand will now become the middle. Continue the process alternating the right and left strands over the middle. Make sure that each strand is tight and smooth. Secure the braid at the bottom with a hairband.
