For some of us, a simple ponytail is work. So, to help those who are less experienced, we found the most fabulous hair tutorials that anyone can do! To test them out, and make sure they really are fool-proof, we chose Kate - someone on the Influenster Team who describes herself as “hair-challenged.”  We believe that if Kate can do it, so can you. So, try out these tutorials to trick people into thinking you're a hair master!
