5. Blowout

Yes really! Gigi Hadid is a style inspiration the world over and if she says it works, who are we to argue?

Wearing her long dirty blonde tresses loose, Gigi looks like she has just stepped out of the salon with this gorgeous blowout. To top off her sporty athileisure style, the model opted for, you guessed it, a pair of micro sunglasses.

Editor’s tip: Create the perfect blowout at home using the TIGI Catwalk Blow Out Balm. Not only will this help create beautifully smooth and glossy hair, but it works as a heat protectant, too – bonus!

If you’re not the kind of girl with a glam squad around you (more’s the pity) rest assured that even your everyday messy bun is perfect for wearing the trend.

Kendall Jenner wears her dark tresses in the Meghan Markle-approved messy bun, which shows off her hexagon-shaped shades perfectly.
