If you answered mostly As:
You got … Straight, Sleek Hair

Your type-A personality leaves nothing left untouched, no hair out of place. You have a plan for everything, and your Outlook calendar is color-coded to match the shades of the rainbow. So wearing your hair down and stick straight is your obvious go-to. You just use a little bit of straightening serum like Pureology Super Smooth Relaxing Serum and a straightener and you are all set.

If you answered mostly Bs:
You got … the Messy Bun

Your whimsical, manic-pixie-dream-girl sensibilities inspire (and occasionally annoy) everyone around you. You dance to the beat of your own drum and always manage to look adorable doing it. And what better hairstyle for you than the effortlessly stylish messy bun? You can throw a braid into this baby or wear it styled with a cute paisley scarf to change it up a bit, but ultimately the ease and flexibility of this style matches your dreamer personality.

If you answered mostly Cs:
You got … the Updo

You have plans tonight, right? We already know because you always have plans. You have more friends than you know what to do with, and your weekend plans read like the laundry list of a mom with a brood of kids. Your go-to hairstyle is an updo, because it goes seamlessly from work to nighttime. You mix it up with different styles like the braided ballerina bun, the messy chignon and the always-classy top knot, Plus, you love the compliments you get from friends and co-workers on your complex styles. And sometimes you’ll even take the time to show them how to do it on their own — after all, talking about beauty is your favorite kind of socializing!

If you answered mostly Ds:
You got … the Braid

What’s that, you say? You’ll have to speak up if you want us to hear you. You’re the quiet, introverted type but when you do say something, it’s important. The understated but-oh-so-relevant braid is your go-to hairstyle of choice. It looks great but doesn’t call attention to itself. And, should you decide to take it up a notch for special occasions, there are so many great options.

If you answered mostly Es:
You got … the Ponytail

Did you scroll down here and read the answers first? You’re just too practical for your own good, aren’t you? It probably goes without saying that the ponytail is the hairstyle you rock several times a week. It goes from the gym, to the office, to the bar, and you rarely have to touch it up throughout the day. There are so many ways to wear the perfect pony, but all of them are practical and low maintenance, just like you.
