An Easy Bun

Bun Hairstyles for Students at Stephen Young Salon in West WimbledonYou can’t go wrong with a girly bun!  Perfect if you’re very active as you can simply whip your hair into a quick bun and you are ready to face the day!

Your bun can be as sleek or as messy as you like, it is the perfect hairstyle for students who are short on time in the mornings.

A bun hairstyle is much easier to master with a medium length haircut than long or shorter hair, our stylists are the experts in precision haircuts and can create a medium length hairstyle that will work just as well when worn loose as when styled into a fun bun hairstyle. 

Our stylists can help teach you how to style your hair so that it works for you, your face shape and your lifestyle needs. 

For a more intricate upstyle – maybe for a prom, party or social – book in for a special updo at Stephen Young Salon in West Wimbledon.


Wavy Hairstyles for Students

 Student Wavy Hairstyles Stephen YoungTousled, barely there waves can be on of the most ideal hairstyles for those of us that are short on time! Some styling mousse and a bit of scrunching and you're done - the messier the better!

If you've got longer waves, you'll know that tangles can be a nightmare! To avoid this when you're in a rush to morning lectures, brush your hair out at night and twist into relaxed braids to keep in knot free ready for the next day. Loosen your braids and run some product through your tresses with your fingers for a relaxed wavy long hairstyle. 

If you've got shoulder length hair, you're in luck as a wavy shorter style is one of this year's top hairstyle trends! It also takes less styling time than longer hair so, for the time conscious student, it may be time for a shorter 'do! Book in at our West Wimbledon salon for your back to uni haircut by calling us on 020 8946 5120.

More structured waves also look great but can take longer to achieve (use your heated styling wand or straighteners to achieve a relaxed wavy hairstyle).

Braided Hairsyles For Students

Braided Student Hairstyles, Stephen Young Salon in West WimbledonLadies, braids aren't just for primary school, trust us, braided hairstyles are all the rage right now.  Dutch braids, fishtail braids and halo braids are great looks and can be as messy or as prim and proper as you like!  

Plaits and braids can also be ideal for that "morning after the night before" hair, so if you don't have time to wash your locks in the morning, give it a refresh with Davines Hair Refresher dry shampoo and twist your hair into some beautiful plaited hairstyles.

If your fringe is looking lacklustre try braiding it across your head to give yourself a braided crown for the day's lectures!

Having a hairstyle like this is ideal for more relaxed outfits or those days when you just throw on a simple blouse and want to keep your hair as the main focus. Show off your braiding skills with this one! Braided bangs and lovely halo braids will be the go-to back-to-uni hairstyles this year.
