I have to wear my hair up for work and I'm getting really bored of ponytails and buns, I have really thick just below shoulder length hair.
Does anyone know of any easy but cool looking hair-dos I can do for a bit of variety?
The only thing I will say is that I don't like quiffs.
There is a picture on my profile if you want to see my hair if it helps.

French braid It's quite easy to do on yourself if you just practise loads.Or plaited pigtails? (sounds dumb but can work, unless that's not counted as 'up').

You could try one of those things from claire's its like a snappy band called hairagami, it can totally transform the ordinary ponytail into many marvellous things. However if your hair is v thick, long and layered like mine your new 'do' won't stay in place for very long. Or perhaps just a french plait.

When I want my hair out of the way I do it in a kind of bun with flicky-out bits - you pull your hair back as if you're going to do a ponytail, place your left hand on the base of the ponytail, use your right hand to wrap the ponytail over your left hand, then twist your left hand to the left and thread the remainder of the ponytail through...if you get me! If your hair's long enough it gives you nice little flicky bits.
You could do partly up-partly down if they allow that? Or do a French plait on one side of your head and then tie the rest in a ponytail. Or put your hair up as normal and add a hairband, scarf or bandana. Or one of those clippy things, like claw...what are they called?! Or those chopsticks things...I can never get them to work though.
