Graduation Hair Inspiration

Giselle Bundchen

Slipping on that prestigious gown and celebrating your achievements is sure to be a feeling second to none but donning a graduation cap can make it a little more of a challenge when it comes to styling your hair. So you have nothing to worry about on the day apart from where your next glass of champagne is coming from, we’ve put together a few tips and ideas to inspire you when choosing your graduation hairstyle. The photographs are going to be on your mum’s mantelpiece, in your dad’s wallet, next to your grandparents’ bed and splashed all over your friends’ Facebook pages so it’s worth getting it right!

If you’re getting in a bit of hairstyle dilemma and having nightmares of hat hair and the dreaded effects of humidity then a trend-savvy side plait would be a great option for you. Before blow drying the hair run some TIGI Bed Head Glaze Haze Semi-Sweet Smoothing Heat Serum through the lengths and ends before teasing into a simple side plait. This look will ensure your tresses are kept under wraps and free from frizz and if you fancy shaking your style up a bit for the night time jubilations, simply undo the hair to reveal beautiful ready-made boho waves. Whether you opt for a classic plait or the more fiddly fishtail braid, this fabulous look will re-confirm that you’re far more than just a pretty face!

A classic chignon is a favourite amongst Regis guests for their graduation day as it is as chic as it is practical. Twisting the hair up into this sophisticated style will ensure your tresses are kept off your face and looking beautiful through day and night. Pull small pieces of hair out from the front section to soften the look and frame the face or slick back with the help of some trusty hair grips for a sleeker finish. No matter what version of the style you’re going for, ensure you apply a generous spritz of Designline Stand Still Ultimate Finisher all over to ensure your ‘do can withstand the endless congratulatory hugs, photographs and inevitable outfit changes.

Our star of the show and fail proof finishing touch to the perfect graduation ensemble is the simple but effective centre parting and loose wave combination. Not only will this sit gracefully under the mandatory mortarboard, soft waves compliment almost any face shape and complexion for a beautifully flattering finish. First, cleanse and condition the hair with the TIGI Catwalk Your Highness Tween Duo to inject that all-important burst of volume right from the root and keep those pesky flyaways at bay. Then with the Diva Professional Styling Big Hot Wand, take large sections of the hair and tease into loose, lustrous curls and secure into place with a light spritz of Designline Volumizing Extreme Hold Mist to prevent your luscious waves from dropping throughout the day.
