DIY Hairstyles in Minutes

Straight from the catwalk, quick and easy styles for Spring.

Corkscrew Curls

Seen at: Sonia Rykiel
Hero Product: Sachajuan Curl Treatment, £23

As tight curls are especially susceptible to heat damage, the most effective way to style them is by scrunching in a curl cream and leaving them to air-dry. Try using your fingers to twist the curl for a more defined coil.

Wet Look

Hero Product: Oribe Gel Sérum Radiance, £58

This look works with all hair types, requires no heat styling, and is easy to master. Using a sturdy brush, begin by sweeping locks into a side-parting, then combing the hair backwards and away from your face. Create the wet-look high shine by smoothing the gel throughout your locks.

Pony Plait

Hero Product: Hair by Sam McKnight Texture Mist, £25

Start with a centre parting, braiding a plait that stops approximately two inches from the bottom of the hair. Tousle the crown and tease out a few face framing flyaways, then lightly pull at the plait to loosen the hair slightly, finishing with a simple bow tied at the bottom.

Throwback Updos

Hero Product: Gucci Silk Scarf, £120

Hair accessories are so relevant now, and there’s a few different ways to wear a headscarf for a modern and cool look. Keep hair sleek and neat, either tucking it in, or with a low ponytail that peeks out of the bottom.

Caught in the Wind

Hero Product: Balmain Paris Texturizing Salt Spray, £23

This season’s hair isn’t just about being undone, it’s about going back to its natural texture. To achieve that raw finish, start by spritzing your hair with a salt spray followed by drying with a diffuser to remove the moisture. From here, you can play with the parting to get the most natural finish.

Pin Up

Seen at: Simone Rocha
Hero Product: Sachajuan Hair Powder, £32

Boost volume by rubbing volumising powder into the roots and mid-lengths of the hair, to keep this style from looking too severe. Then section of the side of the hair, pulling it back and securing neatly above the ear with a clip.

Twisted Tail

Seen at: Victoria Beckham
Hero Product: Ouai Haircare Finishing Crème, £20

Stylist Guido Paulo used the models’ natural hair texture and parting to create a low ponytail. Half of it was then twisted up to form a low bun, with the lengths hanging loose. The key is keeping hair looking healthy and shiny, so smooth the finishing cream on any dry ends.

Wrapped Up

Seen at: Cushnie et Ochs
Hero Product: SHOW Beauty Premiere Finishing Spray, £30

Using a small blob of styling cream, slick hair into a tight ponytail, high on the head and at a slanted angle above the outer corner of your eyes. Next, wrap your hair around the base of the pony, to create a loose bun. Use grips to secure any shorter strands and seal in place with hairspray.

Super Sleek

Seen at: Julien Macdonald
Hero Product: GHD Platinum Professional Styler, £165

Minimalism rules with this glossy and straight, modern style. The secret to success here lies in the process, namely starting the look with a brilliant blow-dry for gloss, shine, and movement. Afterwards, run the straighteners over hair to eliminate any last frizz or kinks.

Soft Pony

Seen at: Eudon Choi
Hero Product: Oribe Curl Gloss, £38

Soft, cool, and modern was the hair brief at Eudon Choi, resulting in care-free ponytails that were textured but not overly messy. To achieve the right finish, blow dry your hair with a curling product to define waves and encourage movement, finishing by pulling your hair into a low pony.
