During this self-isolation period, we can easily be bored with our daily routines, hairstyles included. These days, I’ve opted for a simple ponytail or an easy up-do bun during work meetings, but I let my hair down when I’m conducting celebrity interviews on recorded video calls. It’s pretty boring I must admit, but there are far many ways to give your hairstyle a little zing.

So I’ve decided to take a cue from some of our favourite celebrities who look chic with minimal effort.

Here are some A-list ideas on how you could give your up-do a modern update for your next video calls.

The low ponytail

Even if you tie your hair with a centre or side parting, it’s still a classic do. Flip your low ponytail to the side of your shoulder to show off your hair accessory.

Grab a bunch of your hair to either side and loosely tie them into a side plait for a wispy look. Gently pull out some strands near your ears to give it an effortless feel.

A chic hairband

Tuck your flyaways and rogue hair with a simple hairband. Perfect when you want the focus to be on your face and not on your messy bedroom hair. We like how Chrissy Teigen keeps it simple with a black hairband.
