1. Updo with ribbon

There are a lot of things that we love about this ‘do. First, the lilac hair color! It’s sweet and pretty without making you look juvenile. Jazzing it up with a playful updo—with ribbon at that—adds more personality.

To recreate this look, simply put your hair in a high ponytail or a ballerina bun, add a cute bow, and loosen some hair strands at the sides to make the hairstyle look more relaxed. If you want to rock the purple hair color and blunt bangs, by all means, do it!

2. Long blonde waves

Go for this simple but glamorous look when going to evening parties. The deep side part gives the illusion of thicker hair, while the soft, loose waves give the hair body and movement. Finish with a lightweight hairspray to help the waves stay in shape for hours.

Editor’s tip: Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your hair as a final touch. It helps waves and curls last long without weighing your hair down. It’s perfect for nailing party hairstyles. 

3. Curly faux hawk

Adventurous, edgy, and totally unique, this look shows how you are not afraid of making bold hair choices. It’s also a great way of showcasing your natural curls without feeling like you’re dealing with thick, lion-like hair every day. To maintain this ‘do, skip the brush when styling your curls—just use your fingers, Then, have the sides of your hair regularly trimmed or shaved to let your curls take the limelight.

4. Blunt-looking wavy lob

Blunt cuts are so in right now, and they look great on bobs and lobs. Maintaining a blunt cut on short, wavy hair can be a challenge though, but you can work your way through it. Just ask your stylist to add layers on the inside section of your hair to keep your wavy bob or lob from mushrooming. This trick can also help tame flyaways. Then, just finger-comb and scrunch your wavy hair for a natural and relaxed look.

Editor’s tip: Spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to add texture and nail a messy-chic wavy ‘do. 

5. Short hair dragon braid

Just like her fresh-looking straight bob from a few months back, Emilia Clarke’s dragon braid for medium hair has impressed us! It’s a unique take on the regular party updo, keeping you from looking too formal and uptight in your floor-length gown. When creating this hairstyle, use hair elastics and bobby pins that are the same color as your hair to keep your ‘do put-together.
