5-minute Hair Fixes by Celebrity Hairstylist, Asgar Saboo


For the ongoing season, Asgar Saboo, Celebrity Hairstylist and Style Director at the Daniel Galvin Salon in Mayfair, London, has put together his favourite hair looks that don’t need hairdryers, straighteners and are easy to create.

Braided Top Bun: This chic updo is a lovely summery variation of the ballerina bun. Start by creating a high ponytail and place a hair doughnut at the base of the ponytail to give the bun a shape. Cover the bun with your hair and secure it with an elastic leaving the hair hanging around the bun. Divide the extra hair in two sections and braid each one of them. Finish by carefully wrapping the braids around the bun and secure with bobby pins.

Bubble Ponytail: Fun and quick, this hairdo is ideal for a post-beach makeover. Apply a smoothening balm and gather your hair in a high ponytail. Tease the ponytail to volume and add a texturising spray. Take elastic bands and place them along the ponytail in equidistant intervals. Finish with a light-hold hair spray to keep it in place.

Messy Side Braid: This bohemian-chic hairdo is ideal for parties by the pool. French braid the back strands of your hair from back to side and create a side pony tail. Using a paddle brush, tease the ponytail to add volume. Braid the teased hair into a regular braid and pull it to the side to create that messy-chic texture.

Loose Bun: This is the perfect style to showcase a beautiful headpiece. Simple and understated, the updo can be created in less than five minutes. For this look, pull your hair into a low loose ponytail and secure it with an elastic. Carefully twist the ponytail and wrap it around the base. Finish by securing it with bobby pins. Finish off by adding a shimmering hair jewel.
