All of us have those mornings when we are running super late and have no more than 5 minutes to make our hair look presentable. This is where this cool hairstyle comes into play. It is not just time saving, but also looks quite effortlessly stylish. The best part is that the carefree, messy vibe of this hairstyle looks good on any hair length. You can even add a cute accessory to give it that extra edge! 

Step 01: Start by brushing your hair gently to undo any tangles.

Step 02: Next, spray a little bit of a texturizing spray such as Toni&Guy Casual : Sea Salt Texturising Spray evenly all over hair. This will give you some extra texture and slight hold.

Step 03: From your hairline, separate out two sections of hair from either side of the face and hold them in place using a hair tie.

Step 04: Taking two more sections of hair above the ear on either side – loop these pieces once around the hair you just tied off.

Step 4: Finish the hair style with a little finishing spray to ensure that your hair stays in place.

Looking for a cool hairstyle to go with all your flirty summer dresses? Yes girl, we heard you! This hairstyle for girls is really easy to recreate and looks pretty, elegant and classy. Perfect for all your day looks, this hairstyle could work particularly well for women with bangs, as it would help keep hair away from the face. 

Step 01: Using your favourite detangling comb, remove any tangles from your hair.

Step 02: Part your hair at the side using a tail comb.

Step 03: Take a section right near the part from the heavy side and divide it into three strands and create a usual three strand braid (you can make any braid of your choice, though).

Step 04: Continue with step 03 until you reach the top of the ear.

Step 05: Secure the braid in place with bobby pins.

Step 06: To keep your hairstyle in place and avoid flyaways, use a finishing spray such as the Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray. Its non-greasy formula will help you achieve smooth, shiny and glamorous hair that will stay put all day!


Braided bun with a scarf

Hair accessories are an amazing way to give your regular hairdos a fun twist. That’s exactly what this cool hairstyle is all about! By adding a scarf, you can give your regular bun a fun update. Scarves are a huge trend this season and are an easy way to make a statement without looking OTT. You can go for a scarf with quirky prints for a casual day out or choose one in a solid colour for more formal events. The options are endless!

Step 01: Thoroughly brush out your hair using a detangling comb to ensure that there are no tangles.

Step 02:  Next, tie all of your hair in a ponytail and secure it with an elastic tie. Place the elastic at the same place where you want your bun to sit.

Step 03: Take a ribbon or a scarf and just pull it through your elastic until both sides are even.

Step 04: Divide your ponytail into two sections and use the ribbon as the third section and start creating a normal three strand braid. Secure with thin hair elastic.

Step 05: Once the braid is ready, gently pull out the sides of your braid. This will help give your bun a fuller and more intricate appearance.

Step 06: Tightly wrap the braid around your ponytail to make a bun. To make your ribbon peek out at the bottom (trust us, this looks super cute) simply pull it out from the bottom of your bun.

Step 07: Secure the bun in place with the help of bobby pins. Place the bobby pins underneath your bun so that they are properly concealed.
