If you’re feeling like your hair needs a new lease on life, you don’t need to pick a vibrant new colour or get a drastic haircut to make a big difference to your hair style.
Instead, try dedicating a bit more time to styling your hair, and the options for your hairstyle are endless. Whether you have long or cropped hair, there are always plenty of choices for updos and styling techniques that will add something extra.
Instead of sticking to your normal routine of blow-drying your hair into the same, usual style, why not use a curling serum or a curling tong when it’s dry? Or if you have curly hair, reach for the straighteners or try an exciting new updo.
This gallery gives you a few easy hairstyle tips and tricks to get the best out of your hairstyle as it is, without going for a big change that you could regret.
These hair ideas make getting ready so much easier because you can switch up your look in an instant, without a trip to the salon. Just allow yourself twenty minutes extra each morning or before you head out in the evening, and set aside some time to experiment with these hairstyling techniques. Once you’ve mastered the art of that impressive updo or effortless looking waves and curls, you’ll be able to transform your hairstyle and your look in moments.
You can transform your hairstyle in a number of ways by investing in the right hair-styling tools and the best products to enhance your hairstyle.

Blonde is In
Why not change up your look this season? Whether you box dye or visit your hair stylist, bright, light and luminous, white blonde is in. It illuminates the skin and is so happening. ‘It’s a great colour for those who are already going grey,’ says top colourist Daniel Galvin. ‘Straightforward grey can look flat, make your face look drawn and highlight wrinkles. White blonde is much more three-dimensional, which means it looks more textured, and it brightens your complexion.’
‘It suits a fair complexion, light eyes and an original hair colour from mousey ash to blonde, or now grey. But if your natural hair is darker, you’ll be in danger of inviting in the dreaded brassy orange.

The Right Brush
To prevent your hair from becoming static and frizzy when blow-drying, toss your paddle brush out for a natural bristle barrel brush for controlled and professional styling. The natural bristles will grip the hair and help evenly distribute the hair’s natural oils. GHD Natural Bristle Radial Brush Size 3 (44mm barrel)
Bye Bye Brass
Blue shampoos or violet hues prevent the hair from becoming brassy or yellow. Pureology Perfect 4 Platinum Shampoo and Conditioner 250ml are protein enriched to clean and condition fragile, highlighted and blonde hair.
Soften and Tame with Oil
Hair tends to look better, feel softer and have an extra bit of shine with oil. If you are on a budget, olive oil does the trick and has great moisturising properties for split- or dry ends, otherwise Dabur Amla Hair Oil not only nourishes the hair with a blend of vegetable and mineral oils, it also helps prevent hair loss.
Hair damage doesn’t just come from heat from styling equipment, but from UV rays and other environmental factors as well. Satinique™ Colour and Heat Protecting Spray protects hair from damage while preventing split ends. Use it before styling hair or everyday use to protect the hair.
