  •  Twisted bun updo 
 If it's romance you want, it's romance you'll get with this gorgeous, twisted bun updo! Team it with a glossy finish to maintain that 'fashion' vibe IRL.
  •  Slicked back curly bob 
 For a clean, cool summer look, try a slicked back bob. This 'do looks gorgeous with natural curls, and it creates the perfect showcase for your sunglasses!
  •  Half-up waves 
 Textured beachy waves were made to be worn half-up! It's such an effortless, easy look that will take you everywhere from the office to a chic Saturday morning brunch.
  •  Ballerina bun 
 There aren't many hairstyles that are more wearable than a bun. This timeless updo is both pretty and practical, whether you're between washes or trying to beat the heat.
  •  Side braid with a headband 
 This simple side braid hairstyle is perfect for summer, or anytime you need to keep your hair under control, but don't want to compromise on style. The monotone headband keeps it chic and makes sure the hair stays off the forehead.
  •  Slick, tucked back hair 
 For a clean, polished look, a slick, tucked back hairstyle is the perfect option. The middle part and subtle wet look sheen give it a really fresh feel. The key to this look is using a tail comb to get the most accurate part with slightly damp hair before applying any product.
  •  Low, messy braid 
 When styling second day waves, a low, messy braid is a cute option that's both laid back and totally on point. Before styling, remove excess oil and lift the hair at the root with dry shampoo.
  •  High-shine, low ponytail 
 Complete with ultra-chic hair cuff, this sleek, low pony is the perfect do-all hairstyle. Just make sure you apply a thermal protectant before straightening your hair to prevent heat damage!
  •  Short hair French braid 
 If you have a bob, chances are you'll also have an off day or two where you just need to do something with it, other than leaving it down/wavy. When these days happen, try styling it in a French braid, using bobby pins to secure any pieces that fall out.
  •  Glossy side part 
 A sleek, glossy side part is the perfect loose hairstyle for every occasion as the sheer minimalism of it makes it really versatile. When styling, eliminate flyaways with a high-shine finishing spray to keep the hair as smooth as possible.

When most of us think of runway hairstyles, we conjure up intense images of wet look hair and other-worldly updos that are definitely not for the likes of us, especially not when it comes to daily wear. However, there are a few high fashion hairstyles that can be worn by just about anyone, promise!

In the gallery above, you'll find ten of our favorite runway looks that are 100% real world friendly (i.e. not so edgy they're actually scary). Which one will you try first?

Styling tips

1/ Stay sleek

Frizz doesn't care whether your hairstyle is high fashion or not, it just wants to create havoc on your strands when you least expect it. To make sure your finished 'do won't end up looking like cotton candy, protect it from frizz with a smoothing finishing spray after styling.

2/ Get waves that last

One of the best things you can do to make sure wavy and curly hair stays in shape all day long is to clip the curls up to cool after they come off the iron. This helps to set the shape properly, leaving you with long-lasting texture that won't fall flat.

3/ Use products sparingly

When using gels or mattifying products on your hair, do so sparingly to avoid buildup and excess greasiness. For most styles, you only need the bare minimum to get the job done in order to avoid gunky, gloopy strands, neither of which are ever chic!
