1. Twisted Hair

All sorts of hair twists were trending on the runways. Victory rolls, twisted buns, you name it. This is definitely a hairstyle worth trying now. Looking to start off with a ponytail hairstyle? Try out our twisted and cute ponytail tutorial. To recreate this look instead, pull hair back on each side and roll each side against your head. Once you have both sections rolled, slide on a hair elastic to keep it in place. Easy!

5. Pillow Soft Curls

Soft cushion curls made its way down the runways. This look is so easy to recreate whether you have naturally curly or straight hair. On straight hair, prep hair with a heat protectant then use a hair wand to create soft looking curls. Pull them apart to separate and create volume. If you have naturally curly hair rake Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Curl Defining Gel Serum through hair then air-dry for a natural looking finish.
