Roll it like a French roll
A simple French roll is a rarely seen yet most widely appreciated because it is simple and yet gives out the aura of gracefulness. Start with combing all of your back hair to the left side and add pins in a vertical order as to overlap the left side. Pull your hair from left to right and roll the ends of your hair in your hand while you apply bobby pins to secure it. Tuck away the ends of the roll into the bottom part and secure that also with bobby pins. To add some finishing touch and shine to your French roll, spray some styling product to keep it the roll set in and not get messed up.
To understand the zigzag braid, it is to know that it does not involve braiding but only the look of braids. Take a little section of your hair from the mount and move it to the right side while securing it with a bobby pin. Now take a little section of your hair from the right side and move it to the left side just overlapping your previous hair strand chunk. Repeat this till the end of your hair and secure the ends with a hair tie after you roll your hair over the left over strands. Add finishing touch shine spray to hold the strands in one place.
Mixing braids and ponytails
This is a mix of braids and ponytails so it not only adds grace to your outlook but also ensures that your hair is kept away from falling on your face over the time again and again. Take a little section of your hair from the top most section and clip it away from falling in between. Now take the whole lot of your hair and secure it with a hair tie on a high ponytail. Braid the top most section and add it to your ponytail before you end up making heads turn at you while you go down the lane.
