TRY A BUN
The easiest way to instant polish? Pull all your hair back into a high bun like Heidi Klum, or a low bun with a sideswept fringe like Julianne Moore. Just brush hair back into a ponytail, twisting it around the centre and securing with pins. “Tame flyaways before gathering hair into a low ponytail. Do not wet hair or apply gel, as it would not work for this style,” says Kevin Woo, Creative Director of Centro W Salon. Using a conditioning product like Sachajuan Leave In Conditioner, RM99, after you shampoo, keeps flyaway strands under control. If you’d like a softer look, pull some strands loose to frame your face.
TRY A DEEP SIDE PART

For sexy Veronica Lake hair, sweep your locks to one side like Cindy Crawford and Jessica Chastain, using the centre of one eyebrow as a gauge where your side part should start. Secure the back with pins. Got a few more minutes? Curl your ends for va-va-voom volume and set your waves in place with L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Spiral Splendour, RM55. This is sophisticated enough for any neckline. Shoulder-duster earrings optional.
TRY A BRAID

At the Tome New York Spring/Summer 2015 show at New York Fashion Week, models sashayed down the runway in sleek plaits. More than just the schoolgirl variety, this updated version gives you a super-sophisticated look. Want to attempt a fishtail? Start by prepping with Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm, RM95, for better hold and high gloss before dividing hair with four sections of hair instead of three. Pull the right outermost section across to the left, alternating sides as you weave. If you’re quick-handed, you can up the intricacy quotient by using skinnier sections of hair.
