We've gathered the best hairstyles you can DIY or show your fave stylist, regardless of your hair length. We also listed down possible hairdos you can try for casual days or special occasions. 

Salon blowout

The voluminous appearance of salon-worthy blowouts is the main reason celebs often opt for this 'do. Basically, the ends are flipped inwards, with the roots lifted and the rest of the locks looking bouncy and shiny. It's a classic 'do that can suit everyone.

Tools needed: Hairdryer, boar brush

Hair products needed: Heat protectant, hairspray, shine spray (optional)

Great for: All hair types; short to long hair; all face shapes

Side Braid

The side braid is a sweat-free hairstyle you can do for summer. Keeping the plait on just one side exposes the nape, which allows ~ventilation~ and prevents sticky situations. This is best done with one-length hair, because varying hair lengths (via layers) may stick out from the braid.

Tools needed: Hair ties, hairpins, fine-toothed comb, hair brush

Hair products needed: Hairspray, serum/leave-in conditioner

Great for: Straight to curly hair; medium to long hair; all face shapes

Milkmaid Braids

If you want your hair away from your face but you think a ponytail is just too basic, then try milkmaid braids. You just need to tie your tresses into pigtails and braid each one. Let the two plaited sections meet on top of your head like a headband. Hide the ends underneath the crown, and secure them with hair pins.

Tools needed: Hair ties, hairpins, hair brush

Hair products needed: Hairspray, serum/leave-in conditioner

Great for: Straight to curly hair; Long hair; all face shapes
