If you've ever looked through magazines for fresh ideas on creating new hair-up looks, they always seem so complicated. In reality the ones that are designed for wearability rather than a photo shoot are based on just four classic foundation styles. We have attempted to describe how to do these basic styles and then given you a couple of ideas of how to reinvent them for a newer, fresher look. Your limits are only the length of your hair and the scope of your mind.

The Bun

The Chignon

The French Roll (mid-length/bob & long versions)

Old Fashioned Ringlets


The Quiff

Virtualhaircare tip:

Many of the hair styles in this section are for special occasions like weddings, balls and prom nights. These events all require liberal amounts of hairspray and other finishing and styling products to keep them in place and make them last the duration of the event. These amounts of hair products (especially cheaper brands) can leave you with a white dusty or flaky residue in the hair commonly known as 'product build-up'. Our tip to solve this problem is to do a cleansing rinse with 2 teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda dissolved in a cup of hot water. Once its cooled a little pour it through your hair and work it evenly over the hair as you would if you were shampooing then shampoo and condition as normal.
