If your hair is naturally straight, long and slippery, then you already know how tricky it can be to keep an up-do hairstyle in place. Never fear – we've sourced four looks that won't budge, no matter how hard your locks try to escape!
Pigtails are no longer just for kids! This childhood favourite hairstyle was hugely popular on the runway in recent seasons – albeit in a more sophisticated capacity. To recreate the look, part the hair down the middle and create two low sitting ponytails. For a sleek finish, apply a serum like L'Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium Nourishing Serum to control any flyaways.
Wet Look Double Buns
Up-do styles are seeing double this season – and buns are one of them! When the double bun is combined with another on-trend style; the wet look finish, the result is magic! To recreate this hybrid look, part the hair to one side and tie the hair into two low buns. (You may want to add a few pins to secure them in place.) Then, set the style and add a wet look sheen by misting on L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Wet Domination Shower Shine.
Messy Braided Crown
Braids of all kinds are trending this season, but a messy braided crown is a style that will work beautifully with long, straight hair. The key is to purposefully leave a few strands hanging loose both from the braid and around the head. This will give the style an overall more relaxed feel – because the idea is that the hairstyle isn't too perfect.
Haven't had a chance to wash your hair? Great! The feminine ballerina bun will work best on second or third day hair. The trick is to lay a solid styling foundation to help the bun stay put – a hair tie, some bobby pins and a strong hold hairspray like L'Oréal Professionnel Infinium Lacquer should do the trick. For a gentler take on this hairstyle, try pairing a ballerina bun with a loose fringe.
