If you usually favour a centre part, why not switch things up by doing a deep side part? You can slick it down into a sleek ponytail, wear it with glam soft waves for a retro look, or leave it tousled for a relaxed look.

Those of you who are more adventurous may want to consider weaving bits of ribbon into your regular braids. There’s also the option of using butterfly clips and adhesive pearls to add an element of fantasy to your hairstyle.
