SUPER STRAIGHT AND SLEEK
A straight hairstyle like Gwyneth Paltrow's statement look works well on any night out and is always a super sophisticated option. For the ultimate sleek style, begin by washing your hair and adding an anti-frizz conditioner such as Bedhead Style Shots (£6.79) to keep flyaways at bay. Use a straightening iron to sort out any kinks but remember to always use a heat protector first!

CAREFREE CURLS
If you prefer a relaxed wavy look why not take inspiration from beach babe Jessica Alba and her effortlessly teased tresses. For on-the-go waves, simply spritz a sea-salt infused styling spray to give your hair some lift and body wherever you are. If you have stubbornly straight hair, try the Babyliss Pro Porcelain Triple Barrel Waver (£24.95) to create a gorgeous tousled look.

LOW SLUNG BUNS AND PONYTAILS
Another low maintenance look, buns and ponytails are a big trend this season. Like Blake Lively, keep them low, near the nape of the neck. This look is particularly great for second day hair – all you have to do is tease it, tie it up and go.

For a bit of extra volume use Head Jog Big Tease Brush (£3.50) and set the style with a lightweight hairspray like Wella Professionals Flexible Finish Non Aerosol Working Spray (£9.45). All hair products available at www.beautybay.com
