Hair Accessories

As the festive season looms, it's time to start planning your party hair! If you're not great at styling your hair in updos or complicated curls, an easy way to instantly dress up your look is with a well-placed accessory. From jewelled headbands to big floral blooms, we've got the lowdown on the coolest ways to wear hair jewellery this season.

Perfect Ponytails

Think ponytails are just for lazy days and trips to the gym? Let these perfect ponytails prove otherwise. From sleek and shiny to soft and bohemian, we've taken a look at ways to turn this two-minute style into something a little more special.

Modern Updos

Stuck in a rut when it comes to styling longer hair? Try out some of these incredible modern updos, from twisted mock-mohawks to classic chignons, by way of plenty of intricate plaits and braids.

From Long to Short (and Back Again)

Considering a dramatic cut? See how both long and short hairstyles looked on a whole host of stars, then decide whether you think you can pull off a crop! If so, find your perfect cut from some of our favourites.

The Cult of the Clavicut

Whether you get this collarbone-skimming cut deliberately or arrive there by accident when growing out a shorter style, the clavicut (aka the lob) is one of the most versatile, modern, and sought-after styles of the season. Follow in the footsteps of the likes of Emma Stone, Rose Byrne, Kerry Washington, and Kimberley Walsh, and find your perfect midlength cut.

The Faux Bob

Try out a new look without cutting your hair! The faux bob has that sought-after instant "wow" factor, but you can go back to your natural length at the end of the night. It works on all kinds of hair, from fine, straight locks to thicker, curlier hair. Find the look that will work for you with loads of celebrity photos for inspiration.

Julianne Hough, Hair Hero

Bored of your bob, growing out a choppy cut, or unsure how to style shorter hair? Take a leaf out of Julianne Hough's book with 10 of her best-ever updos. You might be surprised how versatile a choppy bob can be.

Autumn Fringe Updates

Whether you're considering getting a fringe cut or just looking for new ways to wear the one you already have, this roundup of fringes for Autumn 2013 will give you plenty of ideas. It's amazing what a bit of clever styling, a chic side sweep, or some shaping can do to revive a flat fringe, and there are some chic styles for the growing-out stages, too.

Cool Colour

Brighten up your dull locks with some unexpected colour. From soft pastel streaks to full-on lavender lengths, we're here to help you be inspired with these pink, purple, blue, and green hues from our favourite celebrity colour chameleons.

Retro Beehives

Love the retro look? Put your own spin on the 1960s beehive, taking inspiration from these red carpet looks. Whether you wear all your hair up or try a half-up style, a bit of volume at the crown will instantly add drama to your style.

Perfect Plaits

Plaits are still huge news, but for Autumn, they get softer and simpler. Retire your go-to look, and try something a bit more unusual for the new season. Find your perfect plait from our favourite picks.
