Slicked back glam
The perfect hairstyle for a fancy party or dinner.
Step 1: Straighten hair, preferably second day hair - easier to work with!
Step 2: Grab the top section of your hair and backcomb underneath in layers using this brush. Add hairspray for extra hold.
Step 3: Brush back the top section evenly and lightly, adding a sculpting gel to create a wet look.
Step 4: Once you're happy with how it looks, lock it in place with hairspray, pin down any fly-aways and add some serum to your ends for extra shine.
This bouncy, voluminous look is great for jazzing up a simple outfit. Perfect for long and short hair.
Step 1: Rough dry freshly washed hair with blow dryer and add oil to tame any frizz. If you have really frizzy hair, blow dry until smooth.
Step 2: Add some volumising spray or dry shampoo to your roots for extra thickness.
Step 3: Using a curling wand, section your hair and curl small pieces in different directions.
Step 4: Once finished and left with super curly hair, run your hands through your hair to separate the curls and to create more volume. Flick your hair to the side for party vibes.
When you want the focus to be on your festive make-up - slick your hair back into a high pony!
Step 1: Straighten second day hair and add serum to the ends for extra shine.
Step 2: Use a backcombing brush to scrape hair up into a neat pony, making sure there are no bumps.
Step 3: Spritz in some hairspray to keep it in place and pin any fly-aways back.
Step 4: Take a small piece of hair from the pony, wrap it around the hairband and clip into place underneath.
Cool, effortless AF hair style for a casual night with friends.
Step 1: Blow dry freshly washed hair until smooth.
Step 2: Leaving baby hair strands out at the front, wrap your hair up into a high top knot and secure with bobby pins.
Step 3: Finish off with hairspray and pull out extra hairs around the front. The messier the better! Accessorise with a bun cuff for extra sass.
Half up/half down braid
Cute, tousled hair with a thick textured braid.

Step 3: Thread the ponytail up through the gap and back out.
Step 4: Spray in some texturising spray and plait the pony into a thick braid. Pull out pieces of the braid to make it wider.
