7 Days of Stunning Hairstyles: A Hairstylist's Guide

As a hairstylist, I've enjoyed experimenting with various hairstyles to help my clients look and feel their best. Over the years, I've come to appreciate the transformative power of a great hairstyle, whether for a special occasion or just a regular day. This week on IG, we've provided you with a week's style inspiration. Let's round up these seven days of styles!

Day 1: Hailey Bieber Baby Braids

Channel your inner Hailey Bieber with baby braids for a playful and youthful look. Start by parting your hair down the middle, then create two small braids on each side near the part of your hair. Before braiding, consider using a hair mask to add hold to your hair. This will make it easier to create tight and secure plaits. Secure them with small clear elastics and gently pull apart the braids to loosen them for a softer, more relaxed vibe. Finish off with a spritz of hairspray to keep flyaways at bay and showcase those adorable braids all day long.

Day 2: Slicked Half Updo with Middle Part and Side Bang

Try a slick half updo with a middle part for a chic, elegant hairstyle perfect for any occasion. Begin by smoothing back the top section from the middle part of your hair and securing it into a half ponytail below the crown of your head. The section size will depend on how much hair you want to leave down. Leave out a few face-framing pieces to create a soft, romantic look or leave out a piece from one side of the part for an exciting look. Use a small amount of Better Hair Days Hair Mask to tame any frizz and add shine for a polished finish that will last all day.

Day 3: 90s-Inspired Pigtails

Let's take a trip down memory lane with a fun, playful 90s-inspired hairstyle: half-up pigtails with bows. Part your hair down the middle, creating two equal sections, then gather the top section of hair from each side into high ponytails secured with small elastic bands. Conceal the bands by wrapping small hair sections around them and securing them with bobby pins. OR, opt for an uber-cute (I'm OBSESSED with the bow trend) bow to finish the look. Tease the loose hair at the crown for added volume, and finish with a spritz of hairspray for a playful look that will bring back memories of the carefree spirit of the 90s.

Day 4: Slicked Back Ponytail

Make a statement with a sleek and sophisticated slicked-back ponytail. Start by brushing your hair back towards the nape of your neck and securing it with a hair tie. Conceal the band by wrapping a small section of hair around the elastic and securing it with a bobby pin. For extra sleekness, apply a dime-sized amount of Better Hair Days Hair Mask to your hands and smooth it over your hair before pulling it back. This will help to tame any flyaways and give your ponytail a glossy, polished finish that's perfect for any occasion.

Day 5: Straight Hair with Double Ear Tuck

Embrace your inner supermodel with slick, straight hair that oozes confidence and sophistication. Start by blow-drying your hair straight, then use a flat iron to smooth out any kinks or waves. Centre part your strands, gather the front parts of the hair, brush behind both ears and secure it at the nape with a small hair tie underneath the back to achieve flat and smooth front pieces. Finish off with a small amount of Better Hair Days Hair Mask to add shine and tame those flyaways, ensuring hair remains sleek on the back. This smart and sexy hairstyle is sure to turn heads wherever you go.

Day 6: Slicked-back Middle Part Bun with Bangs

Try a slicked-back bun with face-framing bangs for an effortlessly chic look perfect for a day out with friends or a casual date night. Before beginning, make sure your hair is fully detangled. Start by sectioning off two pieces at the front for the bangs and clipping them away to return later. Slick your hair back into a tight ponytail at the crown, twist it into a bun and secure it with bobby pins. I like to leave the ends out for a cool girl finish. This relaxed yet stylish hairstyle is sure to become a go-to favourite.

Day 7: Wet Look

Channel your inner runway model with an effortless, edgy, and ultra-glamorous, just emerged from water-wet-look hairstyle. Start on your dry hair by applying a generous amount of Better Hair Days Hair Mask, focusing on the roots of your hair. Then, use a wide toothcomb or brush to push straight back or over on the side of your hair and create a glossy, wet-look finish. This bold and daring hairstyle is perfect for a night out on the town or a special event where you want to make a statement.

With these seven stunning hairstyles and the nourishing power of Better Hair Days Hair Mask, you will have a week of fabulous hair days ahead. So embrace your inner stylist and let your hair take centre stage!
