When you just need to get your hair out of your face, you can still keep things chic with these fuss-free upstyles.

1

RELAXED BUN

Start by adding texture and volume to dry, clean hair using a volumizer like Sebastian Volupt Spray or a dry shampoo such as Nioxin 3D Instant Fullness Dry Cleanser, and then use your fingers to rake it all back and secure into a ponytail at the crown. Loosely wrap the tail around the base and secure with bobby pins, ensuring you cover the elastic, and then use your fingers to gently pull some strands free around the hairline for a hazy, halo effect.

2

BRAIDED PONYTAIL

Pull hair back into a ponytail using Rock & Ruddle Large Brush in Flamingos, picking the placement in line with the look you’re going for – a higher ponytail is a little more casual, while a nape-of-the-neck pony reads slightly more formal. Braid the tail, stopping a few centimetres from the ends, and secure with a hair tie, and finish with either a shine spray or hairspray such as Sebastian Shine Define for sheen and hold.

3

HALF-UP HALF-DOWN

For those times when you just can't decide, this is a nice compromise, and works on either stick-straight hair or tousled waves and can look both understated or glam. You can also adapt it to suit your personal style: a centre part or no part, pull the upper portion of hair into a ponytail or bun securing with an elastic or bobby pins. While, leaving the underneath hair loose and free flowing. Remembering that the more texture you add before you style the more likely your style is to stay put. For movement and hold we can’t go past Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity Hairspray.
