Celeb Style: Xoli’s hair inspiration

We took inspiration from our June cover star, Xoli Zondi’s hairstyles. Here is how we would rock these looks in the real world for date nights, family time and everything in between.

Date night
Soft, romantic curls are a breath of fresh air. Channel your inner bombshell with this easy hairstyle and pair this look with a flirty dress, comfortable heels and delicate accessories.

How to: Soft romantic curls
Section your hair. Use a flat iron or curling wand and curl your hair inwards. Spray with a serum spray for sheen. Style the parting as you wish. Try Perfect Chioice Oil Sheen Spray 24.95*

Chic errand run
On busy days, pull those lovely locs into a messy side bun or what the French call a chignon. This look is chic and effortless. Keep your make-up impactful but simple – mascara and glossy lips go a long way. Ladylike and functional items are key ingredients in putting this look together. Think a flowy tunic, coat, jeggings and ankle boots.

How to: Messy side bun
Make a loose side ponytail. Gradually pin your ponytail upwards. Make sure your hair covers the pins.
Tip Include a braid or a gorgeous hairpin to take it to the next level.

Business ready
A pinned back hairstyle is the perfect combination of femininity and sophistication. They will take you seriously in the boardroom as well as the job interview. Rock this look with a tailored suit or well-fitted dress-and-blazer combo.

How to: Pinned back
Make a middle parting. Take the hair from the sides of your face, gently twist around your finger and pin with a bobby pin at the back of your head.
Tip Make a statement with a pretty metallic hair clip to pin your hair back.
