Fashionable, practical, snappy: The flexible head band is an all-round hair styling talent

THE hair accessory from the 90s celebrated its comeback on our heads last year already! We are hanging on to the flexible head band this season, mainly thanks to its uncomplicated styling options. In casual beach waves or pinned up, the zigzag band makes any hairstyle a jaunty eye-catcher – in just a few minutes. Our tips for speed styling: Undone waves with a wet hairline!

Styling instructions: Apply some salt spray to towel-dried hair and work in a hazelnut-sized amount of hair gel at the hairline.
Put in the flexible head band and push it a short distance towards the back of the head.
Let the style air dry and you are done!

The ponytail is pimped up in a hurry and styled with a new front

Simply sophisticated: When you are looking for a quick hairstyle you tend to end up with a ponytail. To pep this classic up a bit, give it a sleek touch and create a charismatic hairline! Pssst: It looks more difficult than it is.

Styling instructions: Rub a generous amount of hair gel between your fingers and distribute it from the hairline to the ends. Pull two strands out at the front and form a short centre or side parting. Tie the rest of the hair back into a severe ponytail. Pin back the two sleek strands to the sides. Last but not least: Apply hairspray to all of it!

4. Quick Tuck-in Hairstyle

The trendy tuck-in hairstyle requires no styling expertise at all: Simply tuck long hair into a polo neck or coat collar (autumn/winter season). For summer the trendy style is easy to create with a scarf: 'Je ne sais quoi' attitude included!

Styling instructions: Form a centre parting and comb the hair straight back. Tie a light scarf around the neck AND hair (at the back of the neck) and slightly loosen the hair above the scarf for some volume.
