Sarah Jessica Parker's pillow bunBest for: Long, thick hair, says Schlenger.
Schlenger's how-to: For an extra dramatic look like Sarah's, extensions are ideal (try Hairdo by Jessica Simpson 21" 100% Fine Human Hair Extensions, $186). Start with a tight ponytail in the center back of the head. Separate the tail into four sections. Working one section at a time, loop the hair out and away from the base. Bring the ends back to the base and secure with pins. For larger loops, use a second pin to keep the loops tight to the head. Spread out the hair to create full, smooth loops. Finish with a strong hold hairspray.
