    Some people love big, bouncy and fluffy ‘dos as seen on TV, especially the nostalgic souls that love retro hairstyles and full, lived-in 90s blowouts. But what if your style is more in line with the polished, modern and blunt vibe of Instagram trendy hairdos?

    If this is you, then check out these sleek hairstyles to add to your routine: whether it’s a day at work, the final touch to a snatched gym outfit or a sheeny ‘do for a special occasion, you’ll find your perfect match to recreate at home.

    The Middle Part Ponytail

    From Bella Hadid to Zoe Kravitz and Kendall Jenner, this trendy ponytail style has a retro finish thanks to a defined, neat middle part, with all the clean design of a modern cut. It can be worn high or low, depending on your personal preferences and style. You can make it fancy with curled ends and sparkly accessories, or style your baby hairs in tiny curls around the edges of your face in the style of Maddy Perez in Euphoria. If your hair isn’t long or thick enough to achieve this hairstyle, you can always resort to ponytail clip in hair extensions to make it yours, with a shiny, natural finish. Alternatively, if waves and curls are not the vibe, you can keep things neat and sleek in the style of Kim Kardashian.

    The Spiky Bun

    Also known as the “model-off-duty” hairstyle, the spiky bun has been around for quite some time, reaching peak popularity last year thanks to supermodel Bella Hadid and singer Olivia Rodrigo. Dua Lipa even made it her style of choice for the cover of her Future Nostalgia album! Fairly easy to recreate and with a futuristic, edgy and polished flavour to it, this hairstyle is perfect for those looking to wear their hair up for a special occasion without resorting to the usual suspects such as the messy bun. Inspired by the looks served by supermodel Kate Moss back in the day, this simple yet sophisticated hairstyle went viral on TikTok and it’s still one of the favourites in the books of the “clean girl” vibe fans.

    The Top Knot

    The snatched top knot is a slight modification of the spiky bun, for those who prefer an edgier, more “out there” look. This tight, twisted type of bun sits high and mighty on top of the wearer’s head, and can be easily boosted by adding a few pieces of clip in hair extensions. An updo in this tall shape helps elongate the neck and lift the face, leaving lots of room for creative and even editorial makeup, an important necklace or a nice pair of statement earrings.

    The Sleek Half-Up

    Snatched on the sides and long and flowy around your neck and shoulders, this type of hairstyle focuses on elegance and simplicity, with great length and a sleek, glossy and poker straight finish. You can leave straight tendrils around the face as a delicate yet glamorous detail. To achieve this type of half-up you can add seamless hair extensions to your ‘do, in order to gain precious inches of luxurious length with double-drawn strands. This type of Remy hair extensions is thick from root to tip to guarantee an even, full finish whilst adding body and length to your mane.

    The Classy Chignon

    Perfect for elegant occasions such as weddings or fancy soirees, the chignon is a timeless classic. From brides to superstars walking down a red carpet, many women have adopted this gorgeous, glamorous look over time. A chignon can be snatched and sleek or adorned with beautiful ringlets around the sides of the wearer’s face, and they are often embellished in the back with the aid of a dazzling hair pin or barrette to keep every strand in place. To add a sheer veil of shine and lock moisture in, you can finish the look with a few spritzes of Moisture Shine Spray and achieve a sheeny, sateen effect.


    If you love snatched hairstyles, these five looks are a must-try. There are many ways you can adopt one of these looks and make it yours depending on the occasion and your outfit; for example, with the right accessories, makeup and clothes you can turn the middle part ponytail in a simple yet effective look for a festival, a party, or even date night – and the same goes for the famous spiky bun.
