a girly bun

You can’t go wrong with a girly bun! Perfect if you’re very active as you can simply whip your hair into a quick bun and you are ready to go. For a more intricate upstyle – maybe for a prom, party or social occasion – book in for a cool updo at stone hairdressing.

barely-there waves

There is something sexy as well as romantic about tousled barely-there waves. These can be achieved with the use of some styling mousse and a bit of scrunching – the messier the better! More structured waves also look great but can take longer to achieve (use your heated styling wand or straighteners to achieve a relaxed wavy hairstyle).


Sure, you might feel like you’re back in primary school again but, trust us, braided hairstyles are all the rage right now. Dutch braids, fishtail braids and halo braids are great looks and can be as messy or as prim and proper as you like! Click here to read our article on how to create the beautiful braided hairstyles.
