Decided to go out at the last minute and worried about what to do with your hair? Don’t panic! In these situations, you really can’t go wrong with a slicked back high ponytail, that literally takes seconds to create. Stars like Eva Longoria and Chrissy Teigen are often spotted rocking this simple-yet-elegant style at A-List events, so if it’s good enough for them, it’s definitely good enough for us!

Editor’s tip: Want to know how to make your ponytail the envy of every other girl around? Well, just try smoothing a few drops of the Toni&Guy High Shine Serum Drops through the hair before styling, for an ultra glossy finish.

Braided updo

This pretty braided updo is one of our best-kept hair secrets! A great way to show off that back-less dress you’ve been saving, it’s a surprisingly easy style to master, too. All you need to do, is divide your hair into 2 low ponytails and plait either side. Then, simply cross these 2 plaits over each other, tuck the ends under and secure in place with bobby pins. Et voila! 

Editor’s tip: If your hair is freshly washed, remember that your plaits might not hold as well, so try prepping them with a sea salt spray, before weaving. A spritz of the TRESemmé Perfectly Un(Done) Sea Salt Spray will give your hair the lived-in texture it needs to stay put, no matter what your night throws at it!

After a style that’ll stay looking fabulous no matter how hard you go on the dancefloor? Then this chic, twisted top knot is just the thing, and you don’t have to go anywhere near the styling tools! To get the look, pull your hair into a tight, high ponytail, then twist it around itself at the base and secure with a hairband. Seriously, that’s it!

Editor’s tip: Set your look in place with the VO5 Ultimate Hold Hairspray before heading out, as it will protect your style, while also smoothing down any of those pesky flyaways.

Retro roll curls

Are Hollywood waves your usual go-to hairstyle for clubbing? Then why not try something a bit different for your next night out? These retro-inspired roll curls are super flattering and they’re versatile enough to work on short and long hair, too. So, no matter the length of your locks, everyone can channel some flirty ’40s pin-up vibes!

Editor’s tip: If you find your curls start to drop quite quickly, try using a hair mousse before styling, to give your ‘do some extra hold. The Toni&Guy Volume Plumping Mousse is ideal for those of you with fine strands, as not only does it keep your curls bouncy, but it also adds lift at the roots, too!
