six different back to school hairstyles

The summer is nearly over as September looms around the corner. I normally spent the summer holidays bored but they always went too quickly! Back in the day we used to have to wear our hair up, so i've chosen six up-do's for you to re-create at home; whether it's for school,college,uni or work.

1. Rope Braid Ponytail
This look reminds me of the model's hair in 'Blurred Lines' & i love it! This braid is really easy to do and works best on those with long, un-layered hair. Check out my tutorial on this here - i did a side rope braid but the technique is the same.
2. Wavy Side Ponytail
For this look you'll need a curling iron and some salt spray to add texture. Simply part your hair to the side, curl one inch sections, spray in some salt spray and scrunch with your hands for messy waves. Scoop your hair to the side and tie in place.
3. 50's inspired high ponytail
I love this look but it does take a bit of time, so no lie-ins! Check out this step-by-step guide on how to re-create the style yourself.
4. Messy bun
Wearing your hair in a bun is perfect for those i-should've-washed-my-hair-last-night days. Firstly, gather your hair together as if you wear doing a ponytail. Then twist your hair into a knot and secured in place with some bobby pins - easy!
5. Five Strand ponytail
This braid is a little more complex than the standard one, but it looks so cool! It's quite hard to explain how to create this so i recommend watching this youtube video and giving it a go. Once you've got the hang of it, everyone's going to be asking you how you did it!
6. Fishtail braid plaits
I first saw this look in Company magazine and knew straight away that i wanted to re-create it. If you already know how to fishtail braid, this is a really quick and easy look to try. Once you've secured the braids in place, loosen them with your fingers and pull out a few strands around your face.

What look is your favourite? Let me know if you have a post requests in the comments below!
