A Simple Middle Part

This classic style from the Alberta Ferretti Fall 2018 runway show is to easy to re-create on your own you'll barely be doing any work when it comes to looking so good. All you need to do is spray some volumizing spray in your hair before drying, and blow it out softly with a round brush, smoothing hair at the ends. Parting it in the center looks clean and chic, you can even tuck it behind your ears for a comfortable all day hairstyle.

When hair is wet from the shower it can be weaker and more vulnerable to damage if it's not dried properly. This can lead to hair breakage, the swelling of the hair cuticle which in return allows more water in, and one of the most dreaded after effects: frizz. To combat this from happening, try the Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Towel. It's designed to perfectly dry your hair without the breakage, you'll be obsessed in no time.

The Sleek, Shiny Braid

Braids are back in a big way, and no matter what your hair length you can always incorporate some type of braid for a modern version of this classic hairstyle. This look from Alexander McQueen pairs shiny, wet looking locks with a tight braid that lays beautifully. You can re-create this style wet or dry, and if you choose to do it wet, simply towel dry your hair and brush your hair back off of your face after getting out of the shower while hair is still damp. Spray some hairspray and shine spray at the root and comb hair back with your fingers to add volume at the top. Begin your braid and tie securely at the bottom with an elastic band.

Heavy conditioner weighing your hair down? Not all hair types work well with conditioner, but that doesn't mean you have to forego it altogether. Shampoo your hair as normal in the shower, and when you get out, spray a weightless conditioning water for an extra boost of softening and detangling.

Consider this hair trend one of the easiest of all time, and one that takes the least amount of your precious morning. Stella Jean Fall 2018's runway show debuted this simple looped knot that is literally something you can wear from the gym straight to the office. Instead of creating a full bun, simply pull your ponytail through an elastic leaving the ends out to create a little dimension. Set with a light texturizing spray to keep flyaways away from your face and hair perfectly intact.

An elegant ponytail, like this one here from Valentino, gives a polished look to a traditional style that long and shorter hair types can both wear. Part your hair down the center, gather it in a ponytail at the base of the neck and then wrap in an elastic. Then, take a strand from the bottom of the ponytail and wrap it around where the elastic is and pin it into place. Voila, easy as ever and super stylish. Mist with a shine spray to finish to keep your locks shiny and healthy.

Soft and Subtle Waves

This wavy, effortless style from Zimmerman Fall 2018 showcases beautiful beach waves, along with a simple twist to keep hair off the face. After washing with a volumizing shampoo, mist a light beach wave spray into hair and air or blow dry depending on your preference and the type of hair you have. Once hair is dry, wrap it around a curling iron, to create loose waves, and brush through for a softer look once you've curled everything. Twist two front hair pieces towards the back and secure with bobby pins to finish. If you want to keep your hair down and not pinned back, curl the front pieces away from the face with an iron and let them fall naturally through the day. If your hair falls flat through the day, keep a mini texturizing spray in your bag to give yourself a refresh.

Whether you have short hair already or might be contemplating chopping it all off, Claudia Li debuted a beautiful wavy bob at the Fall 2018 presentation and it's definitely becoming a trend we're seeing more and more in hairstyles. For this look, you can curl your hair with an iron if you tend to have straighter hair, or if it's curly, simply scrunch it with a curl enhancing mousse for curl definition. Let it air dry or use a diffuser, the curlier the hair looks for this look, the better, so be really generous with that curling mousse and scrunch away with your fingers.

A Side Part With Volume

A one-sided voluminous look with curls can appeal to anyone wanting to switch things up from a basic style where hair falls on both sides. This calls for applying a smoothing cream before blowing out your hair with a round brush, softly curling it with an iron to create a loose looking wave, and brushing out the curls and then parting everything to one side. You can choose whichever side you prefer and flatters you the most. If you want to ensure your hair doesn't move from the side, you can pin it at the nape of the neck with bobby pins to make sure everything stays perfectly as it should.
