8 easy ‘dos made for Guy Fawkes Night!
1. Accessorised ponytail
Before you overlook this ponytail, hear us out! We’re not talking about just your standard, run-of-the-mill ponytail, oh no – for this Bonfire Night, try giving your mane a style boost by dressing it up with a super on-trend hair bow.
2. Half-up bun
Don’t worry if you’re torn between an updo or wearing your tresses down for Guy Fawkes Night, because this half-up, half-down bun (AKA the hun) is the perfect in-between! Keep your hair wavy and casual for a relaxed look to really ramp up the volume!
Editor’s tip: If you’re dealing with second day strands, you can give them a quick refresh with the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray. Not only will it help amp up your hair’s texture, but it will also give it an ‘effortlessly undone’ finish.
3. Donut bun

4. Plaited ponytail
Got luscious long hair? Then don’t underestimate the power of this pretty plait! By embracing this French plait, you’ll be bringing your A-game to any Bonfire Night party while keeping your hair safely tucked away. Credit: @michaelgrayhair
Editor’s tip: If you have thin or fine hair, and want to give your plaited ponytail some extra oomph, spritz your mane with some VO5 Dry Texturising Spray before styling, to give it a lovely boost of texture and volume.
5. Double buns
Thought that double buns were just for sweaty summer raves? Well, we’re here to tell you, that they are also a super cute option for winter, too! Just don’t forget to pull out some tendrils of hair free from around your face, to give yourself that perfectly undone finish. Credit: @stylespygirl
Tip: Feel like giving your buns a dazzling twist? Then you need to try out the sparkliest hair trend of the year: space buns! After all, glitter makes everything better, right?
6. Milkmaid braid
The milkmaid braid might look like it’s difficult to do, but in reality, it’s actually really, really easy! So, if you’re less than hair-confident, and not quite a plaiting pro, this is definitely one for you. Unconvinced? Then to nail the look, simply follow our quick milkmaid braid tutorial, here.

Editor’s tip: To keep your ‘do looking on point all day, don’t forget to give it a generous spritz of the TRESemmé Ultimate Shine Hold Hairspray. This hairspray not only gives you long-lasting hold but also help to protect against frizz, without leaving any sticky residue!
7. Hat hair
Whether you’re planning on rocking a beret, a baker boy hat or a good ‘old bobble hat (aren’t the pearls on this one cute?), knowing what to do with your hair underneath can make or break your Bonfire get-up.
8. Hair tuck
