Instagram Inspired Hairstyle Hacks

Everyone loves a shortcut – particularly when it comes to hair styling! We've scoured our Instagram feed to find the best hair hacks of online DIY-stylers.

Perky Pony

No one likes a saggy pony! If you want your pony tail to stay high and perky all-day long, all you need are some strategically placed bobby pins. Simply place two pins vertically into the elastic at the base of your pony and then pull the tail on either side so that the pins slide into position. Hello, perky pony!

Cheat Chignon

Doing your own up-do hairstyle needn't be daunting. Anyone that knows how to braid can try this romantic chignon look. Simply create three braids at the base of the hair then wind each one into a loose bun. When all three buns overlap it creates the illusion of a beautiful, wispy chignon.

Flyaway Patrol

There's nothing worse than reaching for your favourite smoothing product like L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Crème Universelle only to find the tube completely empty! If there's no time to dash out and buy a new one, then reach for a toothbrush instead! When spritzed with a bit of hairspray the toothbrush can comb down any flyaways.

Anytime, Anywhere Pony

No hair elastic? No worries! If you want to tie your hair up in a pony sans elastic, a simple shortcut is to use your own hair. Take two medium strands from either side of your head, wrap them under and around the lengths to create a pony and then tie the two pieces gently together.

Shortcut Waves

Want beachy waves in a flash? Skip a few steps by braiding the hair into two plaits and then clamp your hair straightener along the braids. Once the hair has cooled, release the plaits and set your newly waved 'do with LOréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Wild Stylers Beach Waves. Shhh, it'll be our little secret!
