Liza Soberano is simply one of those celebrities who could make even a trash bag look chic. Looking good in just about anything is second nature thanks to her genes, but still, what we love about her is that she never relies on that alone. She's practically a chameleon, trying just about any beauty look under the sun yet always with that effortless Liza touch. In fact, if you're in a serious search for a new hairstyle to try, dropping by her and her glam team's feed is sure to serve you some inspiration. Don't believe us? Keep scrolling to see some of the actress' most cop-worthy 'dos!
1. Flat iron waves
Liza wore this look when she attended Coachella in 2019, and if you have a flat iron, you can cop it for just about any occasion, too! To prevent any dents, clip small sections of your hair in the iron and manually mold it into waves as you work the tool downwards (watch a tutorial here!). This will give you a smoother finish than simply wrapping your strands around the flat iron.
2. Glam ponytail
The usual problem with ponytails is that they tend to look too plain for formal events. You can always opt for a sleek style to remedy this, but if you're going for an edgier vibe, spice it up with a wispy fringe (here's how to DIY some) and loose tendrils on each side of your mug. Finish off with a bold lipstick to take your look to next level. Now you're ready to walk the red carpet!
3. Facelift ponytail
This up-style has an effortless, bouncy feel to it that also gives you an instant "facelift." To cop it, bow your head and brush all your hair downwards until you can gather it all at the top of your head. Flip your head back up and comb your roots to remove any clumps and get a slight stretch before you finally tie it in a tight ponytail. The neater your roots are, the stronger the "lifting" effect!
4. '90s scrunchie
A scrunchie is the best accessory to reach for to make just about any hairstyle a curt nod to the '90s. It adds a youthful vibe to simple styles in your repertoire, too, regardless if it's a classic chignon, a messy bun, or a ponytail. We strongly suggest getting one in a vibrant color so it stands out every time you use them. For example, if you're a brunette, go for pastel hues!
5. Relaxed updo
When you want to ditch your overly-neat office bun, try this relaxed updo instead. The secret to pulling this off is keeping the back almost half-undone (don't stress about your ends sticking out!) and making sure that the front part like your fringe and sides have little to no flyaways. This will look absolutely amazing with bangs, so don't hide them if you can!
6. Modern Maria Clara
If putting your hair up makes you feel too exposed, part your hair on one side to softly frame your face. Let the shorter layers of your hair or your fringe fall naturally at the sides, since these will help loosen up the feel of the updo. Again, balance is key, so while your front sections are chill, set all strands of your bun in place with hairspray and bobby pins.
7. Dainty hair clips
Wearing a barette might seem like a cop-out for when you're extra lazy, but there is a way to trick people into thinking that you put more effort than you did. Instead of sliding on just one clip and calling it a day, wear several pieces on different areas like you're making a funky pattern. Two clips above each ear, for example, amp up the look and keep your tresses out of your face.
8. Beribboned locks
The ribbons that came with your designer splurges shouldn't just collect dust in a box inside your closet. You can breathe new life into them by turning them into hair accessories, and all you really need to do is wrap it around an existing ponytail and create a neat bow! Repurposing it as a headband is easy, too, just have some bobby pins on hand to secure them in case the material is too slippery.
9. One-length bob
Cutting your hair into a chic blunt bob is by far the most convenient way to have a chic 'do without having to move a muscle. The short length already makes a statement on its own, while the uniform length helps everything look that much more polished even when worn unstyled. To make sure yours looks photo-ready, though, smooth out any flyaways and add a glossy sheen to your strands with a thin coat of hair oil!
10. The hat trick
While most people would use a hat to hide a bad hair day, it can actually work to accentuate the best features of your locks, too! If you have a fringe, for example, wearing a hat can add dimension to the top of your head so your bangs won't look so flat. If you have a layered haircut, use the hat to hold the longer layers and pull out only the short ones to help frame your face more visibly.
