#1 Dirty Hair Hack - the Top Knot!

When you’re a supermodel or Hollywood Hottie, time is limited which is why Margot Robbie and Gigi Hadid lead the way in the ultimate dirty hair hack – the top knot. A top knot works even when it’s not (like when it’s a side knot). We asked VS Sassoon stylist Rob Reeves for his advice on how to recreate this go-to celeb look. “This is a great style if you’re hair needs a wash – in fact, dirty hair works for you not against you with this style."


Here's How To Create a Top Knot with 2nd-3rd Day Hair:

  1. Use dry shampoo to add texture and fullness.
  2. Start by pulling your hair into a high ponytail (brush for a smooth finish or use fingers for a looser messier finish.
  3. Then wrap your hair around the base of the ponytail and secure it with a hair tie to create a top knot.
  4. To create a larger fuller bun style knot either backcomb the pony before pinning or add a hair donut for extra height. 
  5. If you want to dress it up add a ribbon-like Margot has here. So on trend right now!


#2 Waves & Volume for Flat Hair

So what if your hair isn’t dirty but in between and in desperate need of a perk up? Well these leading ladies have got it all worked out. Nicole Kidman is famous for her wigs and extensions these days and we’re betting she added a few here to create volume. Nowadays clip on micro extensions are the go. They subtly add length and volume. As long as they’ are made from natural human hair - can be styled in the same way as your own hair.

Elle Fanning has gone with a braid here, while Kirsten Dunst has added a casual curl. 

Rob Advises on How to Get Kirsten's Casual Curl Look:

  1. Start by spraying your roots with dry shampoo. It will give your hair bounce, as well as adding texture and volume. It will also reduce shine and add a matte finish which is perfect for this look.
  2. Then take a medium sized curler like the VS Sassoon 25mm Ceramic Curler, starting at eye level, wrap your hair around the barrel mid-length. Curl away from your face leaving the ends straight. No need to use the clamp. 
  3. Spray with a flexible hair spray after the curler has been removed from each section.  
  4. Once cooled, brush through gently and finish either with a light spray of dry shampoo or hairspray for hold and texture.

#3 Use Heated Rollers to Save Time

Serial double dates, George and Amal Clooney and Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber like to hang together so much, the girls are now coordinating their hair! While the finish is slightly different the look is the same here – yes we’re talking big hair! 

“The girls have used hot rollers. This is a great trick if you‘re short on time as you can do your makeup while your hair is setting and the results are always that big hair you desire!”  says Rob. 

“Use the VS Sassoon Total Protection Heated Rollers as they’re gentle on hair. You’ll get volume and a long lasting style without damaging your hair,” advises Rob. 

“Amal has finished her look by pulling her curls through with her fingers and then bringing her hair onto one side, while Cindy has brushed through her curls for a softer finish,” says Rob.


#4 The Wet Hair Look



Now we can’t talk hair without mentioning at least one Kardashian because these girls like to take a risk with their hair including going platinum just for a single day. RESPECT! 

Here Kim Kardashian has gone for a wet look which is another great hack when your hair needs a wash because who can tell when it’s wet right? 

“Use a professional wet product like gel, moose or wax to achieve this look,” says Rob. “Start with the roots and take it through to the ends. Kim has brought her hair back from her face to give it some height and definition here. 

For an extra secure sleek finish use pins to fix hair into place Rob says.

#5 Grown Out Roots Hack

Those that choose highlights over ombre are definitely more committed to regular visits to the salon, here are some tricks to keep you on point when your roots are showing especially if you have premature greys. 

Here Karlie Kloss is hiding her growth very cleverly by parting on the side. “You can even go for a zigzagged or messy irregular part which totally distracts the eye,” says Rob. “And Karlie here further distracts with these old world glam waves but you can choose any wave or curl style with the same result.
