In a hair rut? Here are 15 styles to get you through the next couple of weeks. Our fave looks include…
THE SECTIONED PONY: For an easy ponytail upgrade, section small lengths of your ponytail with elastics, then slightly tease to create an unkempt look. Or, go for a more sleek look by wrapping a material or wire around the top section. Who said a pony was boring?
THE ROPE PLAIT: Can’t braid? Try this one. Secure a simple pony, divide in two and twist each length in one direction. Then, holding both sections tightly, twist them around each other in the opposite direction. Secure with an elastic, spritz with shine spray and voilà: rope plait!
GOING HALVES: The half-up, half-down style has made a resurgence of late, thanks to messy top knots and festival-ready braids. Keep your face clear with this time-saving style, simply section, tie and go.
THE WOVEN BRAID: Okay, so this one looks a lot trickier than it is. Go for a simple, centered braid and weave your choice of material into the plait as if it were a section of hair. The result is a twisted, unkempt alternative to a straight braid.
SOFT WAVES: This style has been going strong for months, and is still a favourite of celebs across the board. Soft, subtle waves have a carefree vibe – ideal to take you from desk to dinner.
