Meet the new classics.

Hair used to be only fastened or unraveled. Now, updos are casual, bedhead is fresh, braids are simple. Here, new face Clara Aseniero wears them all with crisp new takes on the white shirt—after all, hairdos come and go, but white button-downs are forever.

1. KNOTTED BUN

The bane of the straight-haired: the ends sticking out of a bun, making it look accidentally messy versus the chicer, deliberate kind. This time, it’s okay to let it slip. Use a fine-toothed comb to smooth loose ends all to one side, then spray finely with TRESemmé’s Extra Hold Hairspray (P689, Watsons).

2-3. CLASSIC BRAID + LOOSE WAVES

The best waves are made when you texturize before you braid. Use Toni & Guy’s Classic Perfect Tease Dry Shampoo (P1099, SM Aura) before plaiting, finish with the brand’s Moisturizing Shine Spray (P750), then unravel.

4. FAUX BED HEAD

Fake morning volume with Surf’s Up! Texture Spray from Eva NYC (P795, Beauty Bar, Central Square), which smells better than real bed head, most likely.

5. LOW PIGTAILS

An updo can also be worn "down." Turn pigtails from sweet to sophisticated by wearing them low, with a precise and sleek side part, best achieved with a fine-toothed comb. Rub Wella’s SP Reconstructive Elixir (P1499, Watsons) between your palms and smooth on the surface of the hair, avoiding the roots.
