Stuck in a hair rut? We bring you some styling inspo to get your sorted for the new year.

Fishtail Braid

We love this take on the classic plait. For something different, incorporate several plaits into a loose ponytail or pin it around your head for a fairytale inspired look.

Relaxed Ponytail

This style looks great with messy beach waves tied at the nap of your neck or up high. Pin loose strands around the ponytail for an interesting look, or tie a ribbon or leather strap around the hair tie for something different.


Wet Look

A great look to take you from a day at the beach straight to a night out. To keep your look interesting, only keep the top part of your hair wet.

Low Bun

You can breathe new life into this hairstyle staple by twisting different sections, leaving the ends of the bun sticking out or adding an embellished clip.

Slicked Back Hair

Whether you have long or short hair you can master this look. Go for a center part for a dramatic night time look with a poker straight ponytail and lose curls with a slicked side part for a more relaxed day-time look.
