3 easy travel hairstyles

Bag – check. Magazine and reading material – check. Comfy, yet stylish, outfit – check. Now which hairstyle will you chose for the all-important voyage to your destination? From cool up-dos to easy ponytails, here's a quick peek at 3 easy travel hairstyles for the perfect on-the-go look.

After all it's important to look the part as a glamorous globetrotter stepping on to the plane, or hopping on your high-speed train!

The travel top-knot

We found our perfect travel trend hair in New York! Adam Selman's FW17/18 runway showed us the way forward with a hip side topknot. Part chignon, part funky bun, we love the way its cute lopsided angle gives it an unexpectedly edgy look. Contemporary, practical and different, it's a trend to embrace, whatever your means of locomotion.

The half side braid

Can't decide if you prefer your hair up or down? No problem, you can have the best of both worlds with this sharp half side braid. The idea? Keep one half of your head in a chic, undone, no-fuss style, while the other half gets a tight braided make-over. A great way to keep your hair out of your eyes, and only half the effort of the usual full on braid!

The travel tail

To keep longer hair in check, the ponytail is an all-around winner. Give it a little extra oomph with a slight back-comb for more volume on top of the head and a finishing touch with the hair wrap. It's easier than it looks! Simply keep a small strand of hair back and wrap it around the elastic band, then keep its hold on the underside with a slide or bobby pin.

To add a little texture, L'Oreal Professionnel Beach Waves spray gives perfect beach-ready waves. And the best news? It comes in handy travel size 45ml so you can pop it into your carry on case!
