Effortlessly Chic Messy Bun

Embrace the trendy and relaxed vibe of a messy bun or textured knot for your school formal. This hairstyle is effortlessly-chic making it perfect for those who want a stylish and low-maintenance look. This is done by creating loose waves in your hair, then gathering it into a slightly undone bun at the nape of your neck. Pull out a few face-framing strands for a soft and romantic touch. This modern take on the classic bun is sure to make you stand out from the crowd.


The Power Pony

This high ponytail exudes confidence and modernity. This hairstyle is all about showing off gorgeously-long hair, pulled back into a powerful ponytail at the top of the crown. This can either be a super sleek style or more voluminous. For a sleek look, use a fine-toothed comb and some hair gel to brush all the strands of hair back toward the hairband and down the ponytail. For a power pony that really packs a punch, we can add some volume in the hair at crown, and volume into the ponytail in the form of waves or curls. Add a statement hair accessory or wrap some hair around the base of the ponytail to finish the look



Glamorous Old Hollywood Waves

We love channelling the timeless allure of Old Hollywood! This hairstyle is all about perfectly polished and sculpted waves that frame your face and features. To create this look, we use a curling iron or hot rollers to create defined waves, then brush them out gently for a soft and glamorous finish. Pair this hairstyle with a deep side part for a truly sophisticated look. Want to modernise this formal hair style? Add a barrette or clip that complements your dress or jewellery on the opposite side of your part.



Braided Crown with a Twist

Elevate your style game with a braided crown hairstyle that combines classic femininity with a trendy twist. Opt for a Dutch braid crown or a braided updo with intricate detailing. Add small braids, twists, or delicate accessories to make your hairstyle unique and eye-catching. This trendy and fashion-forward look is perfect for those who want a fun, feminine look that showcases their personality.
