Featuring a mixture of tight, twisted knots and bohemian-inspired ponytails, TRESemmé stylist Jeanie Syfu worked to include some form of a twist into each and every model’s hair. Armed with an array of bobby pins and some handy hair styling products, Jeanie and her team created a bunch of mesmerising, romantic ‘dos with ease.

To create the romantic hair twists, all you have to do is follow these simple steps:

1. Divide your hair down the middle, then, working on one side at a time, comb your hair from your parting down towards your ears. After that, begin to twist your hair inwards, starting at the temples, and adding in more hair as you descend towards the back of your head.

2. Add in some bobby pins that match the colour of your hair, into the side of your hair twist, to help hold it in place. Ensure that these are tucked neatly away, so that they are hidden from view.

3. Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the other side of your hair.

4. Join the two twists together at the nape of your neck, by securing them into a low ponytail or a loose knot.

5. To get that undone, romantic look, gently tease the hairs that frame your face and finish with a spritz of TRESemmé Superior Hold Hairspray (500ml, £4.99*).
