Knowing what to do with your hair is a constant battle. Gone are the innocent days of plaiting and pinning random sections of hair and still managing to look cute as a button. We all tend to opt out of trying to create interesting hairstyles and go for the failsafe option of wearing it down.
Well the Spring catwalks have come up with some fabulous, interesting and wearable looks for your hair. We have already championed the plaited look so here is another slightly more sophisticated option.
The ballet bun is officially back in business. It has been spotted on the Lanvin catwalk at Paris fashion week and has since been popping up on many pretty heads, including that of the pictured Kate Bosworth.
The thin, short and limp haired may be thinking that they don’t have the right merchandise to create an ample sized bun but fear not, this is what the doughnut ring is for. We suggest you pick up one of these fantastic contraptions from Boots for £4.50.
Simply brush your hair into a gravity defying extremely high ponytail and secure with a bobble. Pop the ponytail through the middle of the doughnut ring and then spread the hair over until the ring is completely covered and secure in place with some kirby grips.
For a preened look finish off with a slick of hairspray (Umberto Giannini Catwalk Beauty Hairspray £4.99 works well) and a dash of shine serum (again Umberto Giannini Spa Rituals Indulgent Shine Spray £4.99 is great). Alternatively if elegantly dishevelled is more your style then rough it up a bit by using a comb to pull out wispy strands of hair and then spritz in place with some hair spray.
