A girl can go for a top-knot that is done up in a messy fashion on top with hair that falls down in waves around the shoulders. A very class look to go for.But if the girls want something that looks smoother, a half up half down hairdo with silky straight hair and slicked out sides is the look to go for.
Another, really cool look that the girls can go for is the half pompadour half half down hairstyle. This look is great for African American girls who want to show off their natural curly hair. But an even more classier look than this is the high pony half up half down look topped off with casual and tousled tresses of hair.

However, if a girl wishes to go for something that is edgy and also sophisticated looking, slicked down tresses topped off with a classic middle parting will do the trick. Girls who like buns and messy hair can also go for a tousled up top bun and messy casual free flowing twists.

One can also go for a gorgeous combination of a bun on top and free flowing wavy hair. This do is sure to make the men go weak in the knees.
