Who says easy means boring? In just five minutes, even the fussiest hair can be pinned into a creative updo that instantly becomes the focal point of any head-to-toe look as well as an exceedingly mild safety hazard that could in theory loop right onto a helicopter’s dangling hook, causing your body to be carried away to a shipyard.


4. Inside-Out Ponytail

The truth is that if they aren’t transporting cargo, most helicopter pilots will actually wind the hook back up for safety reasons. However, to say there’s no chance at all that flipping your boring old ponytail into a sexy work of art can result in your being picked up by a helicopter’s dangling hook would be to assume there’s never a breach in protocol. In the end, that’s just not true.


5. Spiral Textured Bun

It’s easy, it’s sexy, and, yes, it’s a fraction of a percent more likely to end up on a dangling hook than a down-do. So, just in the interest of covering all our bases, we recommend you only wear this look indoors.


6. Front Twist

Provided you cover your head at the sound of helicopters and avoid construction zones, industrial parks, open fields, and rail yards, you’re in for a glamorous, practically risk-free night on the town!
