Remix Your Topknot
A topknot is quite possibly the most versatile hairstyle to ever exist. You can work it on the red carpet for an elegant night out or throw one together for a casual midday brunch. Queen Latifah added some extra spice to her high bun with chunky layers when she arrived at the New York City Ballet's Spring 2013 Gala.

Play Your Part
Believe it or not, a simple shift in your part can make a world of difference. Side parts lend themselves to fuller, swooping bangs while center parts offer a sleeker look. Jourdan Dunn rocked silkened strands with a center part at the 2013 Whitney Art Party.

Experiment with Accessories
Kimberly Elise was spotted at the CARRY Foundation's 7th Annual 'Shall We Dance' Gala wearing a cute, curly 'fro with a sparkly headband. In order to avoid having accessories that look like they're suited for a 16-year-old, keep them simple and sleek and don't go overboard with bright colors.

Go The Distance
Michelle Williams attended the 2013 SESAC Pop Music Awards in high-shine, waist-length extensions. If you're afraid to go the distance—pun intended— let go of your inhibitions and give it a go! Clip-ins are great options for experimenting with new lengths without a long-term commitment.
