Happy Friday!!!

Avoid bad hair days and print this out for 7 days of great hair ideas courtesy of the new issue of InStyle Hair.

“TRIM” YOUR HAIR:
For the latest faux bob, brush hair into a ponytail (a la Gwyneth Paltrow at this year’s Oscars), but keep hair loose above the elastic to create a chin-length illusion from the front.

BE A PUSHOVER:
Twist and pin back a few strands on one side to form a sexy sweep that gently frames your features. (This is an easy fix for overgrown bangs!)

WORK THE SHOULDER:
All this flirty red carpet fave takes is a quick tweak to your blowout. Coat damp hair with gel for hold, then push to one side with a paddle brush.

BULK UP YOUR PONY:
Tons of teasing gives this style oomph. Key details? Height at the crown and a strand wrapped around the elastic.

WEAR FAUX FRINGE:
Want bangs like Rooney Mara’s for a night? Go for a clip-in variety that matches your color, then heat-style them to suit your do.

THINK BIG:
The new blowout is all about big, bouncy volume. Start blow-drying hair with a large barrel brush, set in loose pin curls for 10 minutes, then shake out until ends are wavy.

CREATE A HALO:
Braiding hair horizontally on either side of a deep side part creates a whimsical, hippie-like effect (like Jennifer Hudson).
