5 trial-me hairstyles from Rowan Blanchard
By Joanna Kyte, 8 April 2017
With the arrival of small-screen Girl Meets World star Rowan Blanchard in your life, it's likely your woke-levels increased (after watching her spot-on feminist speeches), your style took an even cuter turn (that'll be from stalking her fashion week FROW snaps) and now your hair is about to get the Rowan treatment, too. See the pics, fall for them, pin them. We're calling it: RB is the freaking future.
Some events call for fancy up-hair and, luckily, Rowan is a pro at the top knot. Pull your locks up into a pony (leaving one small section out) and start to loosely twist until your hair wraps around into a bun. Then, grab your left-out section and sweep it around your bun, securing with kirby grips. Last step? Gently pull two strands out by your ears for a finishing cool factor.
Girl got class
If the dictionary did pictures, this style would live under ‘chic’. To steal sleek points from Rowan, part your hair straight down the middle and reach for a paddle brush and mid-hold hairspray. Starting from the root, alternate between combing and spraying until smooth, before tucking your mane behind your ears. Nice.
Things don’t get much cuter than a high pony done good. So, take it from Rowan and let your hair dry naturally (for that bedhead vibe) and brush upwards into a cheerleader style. For extra kudos, leave a section out and wrap it around your hairband, securing with a kirby grip. PS. Can we please take a moment for RB’s glitter brows? Amazing.
Tying your hair back just got an A* upgrade that looks like heaven. Hit Rowan B heights by pinning the fringe of your hair right back (with a little raise for volume) and separating out two sister sections either side of your ears. Plait these sections and fasten with clear bands and mini ribbon bows before returning to the main of your hair, whipping it back into a low bun.
When you’re feeling for a mega hair look that requires close to nada effort, this one’s for you. Using the end of a tail comb, create an extreme side parting and level right down and back into a super-low ponytail. Zhuzh up with your fingertips to finish.
