Try crisscross pins

Crisscross bobby pins like Kate Mara for a graphic pattern that you’ll want to show off. Try with silvers or gold pins for a light-catching alternative.

Try double-braided buns

Pro tip: You’ll have to work with your hair upside down to create the braids. Our favourite thing about this look? It’s a #showstopper from the front and the back.

Try a low bun with a deep part

A dramatic part – as seen on the Chanel runway – will upgrade any look. Pair it with a low bun to keep the styles from competing. Bonus: It also looks more elegant.
