This simple chignon hairstyle is really just a really loose know that has been pulled out most of the way, then pinned up at the back. It goes really well with this season's undone, textured hair trend and it's a great way to deal with your hair after a night out.

Styling tip

Add shine and get rid of any flyaways by misting your finished 'do with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.

2. Messy updo

If you have a medium-length or short haircut, this messy updo is a great way to put your hair up. It consists of several twisted sections pinned into a bun-like shape.

Styling tip

Spray your bobby pins with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray before styling. The dry shampoo formula will stick to the pins and give them extra grip, allowing them to hold more hair.

3. Messy knot

Not quite a bun and not quite a regular topknot either, this messy, textured knot is perfect for a quick and easy brunch look. It keeps the hair up and under control and the disheveled finish creates a universally flattering silhouette.

Styling tip

To add texture, spritz dry hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and rough dry for a few minutes while scrunching your hair.
