 1. The disheveled top knot

Ok, so this ones super easy, all your need is a hair band! I wear this look when I'm tired or have unwashed hair from the night before. Just tousle your hair with your fingers or a brush to create volume. If your hairs feeling particularly flat, scrunch some dry shampoo into your roots. Then simply pull your hair back into a bun and secure- no hairbrush required!

2. Wet and Voluminous

I recently saw the Redken stylists create this look backstage at the Jayson Brunsdon show and the models' hair looked lush, tropical and sexy. The stylists recommended Redken Hardwear 16 Super Strength Gel spritzed through the hair and tousled with fingers. Alternatively, rock this look on the beach after you've been swimming and look sexy au-naturale.

 3. The Messy Low Pony

If there was one look favored by designers at Aussie fashion week, it was the messy low ponytail. Sexy and versatile, this style was seen at Shakuhachi, Cameo and Ginger and Smart. Recreate the catwalk look by backcombing hair and securing into a band at the nape of the neck. If you want your look to be extra undone, pull pieces out at the front and wrap around your fingers for a gentle curl.

 4. The Rope Braid

Ladies: Get ready for a braid that's even more complicated then the past seasons fish tail! This beauty looks so complex that it could very well be a five or four stranded braid. If your fingers hurt at the thought of it, cheat and do a two stranded rope braid for the same effect.

5. Sleek, Smooth and Straight

Straighteners at the ready! The long and lush look is here to stay. Be sure to use heat protector to avoid a fry-up and tame any loose fly aways with serum.
