Over at the Anna Sui Spring/Summer 2017 show in New York City, the models took to the runway rocking retro beehive bouffants.

The trick to achieving this look at home is all down to backcombing and a holding spray.

  • Voluminous beehives work best on day-hold locks as the hair has more texture to it than silky strands, so you can forgo the fresh blow-dry.

  • Concentrating on your crown, section hair backwards before taking a comb and brushing upwards towards your scalp - the aim is to create a matted look, which you can then gently smooth over the top with a comb.

  • Pull back two front sections with bobby pins and spritz generously with hairspray.

Pro tip: For maximum volume, go easy on the conditioner. Just apply a small amount to the ends before rinsing and avoid the crown altogether.

Straight On

Shiny straight hair at Victoria Beckham’s Runway Show in New York City

For Spring/Summer 2017, Victoria Beckham sent her girls down the runway with super sleek straight locks. To top off the modern look, hair was parted neatly down the middle and smoothed with a high gloss serum.

  • Get this polished look by blow-drying hair with a large paddle brush followed by a runover with flat irons.

  • Use a fine-tooth comb to divide your parting into the centre and finish with a drop of moisture-rich serum or balm.

Pro tip: To tame flyaways, spritz a little hair spray onto a clean toothbrush and softy brush down.
