A chignon is great for medium-length hair. Backcomb the top for a little height and volume, then pin it up and smooth any flyaway hairs. I tend to twist my hair and then pin it at the back – it gives a nice little effect.

Long and curly
Curls are super easy to do, and always look beautiful. Wrap sections of your hair around a straightener or curling tong, lightly brush out, spray with hairspray to lock in the curls, and you’re good to go.

Short and wavy bob
This sophisticated hairstyle is a great way to glam up a bob for a wedding. Simply run mousse through wet hair, blow-dry, then tong the mid-length and end sections for no more than a minute each. Tease out once cooled, and finish with a light spritz of hairspray.

Loose French plaits can look flirty and feminine. Plait the hair and pin up at the back of the head. Don’t do it too tight, or you’ll loose the whole effect.
