Latto's zig-zag parting and curly updo is the perfect hairstyle for those of you who love to experiment. Make sure you use a hold spray on your curls to keep them intact.

Undoubtedly one of the most fun looks on the red carpet, Alaya High's (a.k.a That Girl Lay Lay) hair bows definitely got our attention with this look.
An Extra Long Braid like Kamie Crawford

When in doubt, opt forbraids, asKamie Crawforddid with one that extended all the way down to the floor. She looked so stunning in this hairstyle that must have gathered tons of compliments for her. We loved that she chose a slick middle parting to go with it - a lovely nod to the 90s classic.
Retro waves like Sabrina Carpenter

For something simple yet impactful, style your hair in soft waves and pop on a thick headband like Sabrina Carpenter. Start with a volumising spray to make your hairstyle stand out more. Then, use a heat protection serum like the Livon Damage Protect Serum to prep your hair and protect it from up to 250Â°C heat. For the perfect retro waves, make sure you use a curler with a wide barrel.
Relaxed bun like Taylor Swift

For a classic hairstyle that you simply can't go wrong with, try Taylor Swift's soft, low bun with a middle parting and curtain bangs that are neatly set on each side. This middle-partition bun hairstyle has our hearts as it looks effortless and chic at the same time. Day two hair is ideal for recreating this look - keeps the look slightly messy and fuss-free.
Pigtail braids like Dove Cameron

Dove Cameron made a solid case to bring back pigtail braids, an instant throwback to school. We love the Livon Anti-Frizz Serumto give your hair a glossy look and smoothen any flyaways before you style it. For this hairstyle, start by applying the serum and then, create a middle partition to divide your hair for the braids. Pull each side of hair into a tight ponytail and then braid each of them, securing them with hair ties.
#ProTip: Leave a few strands open on both sides in the front to delicately frame your face.
The Wet Look like Anitta and Lizzo
