We know. When it comes to hair, there’s nothing more daunting than doing your own up-do. A quick blow-dry is always easier. But once in a while, a special occasion calls for a statement-making up-do (especially on those hot summer days where long hair won’t do the trick).

Thanks to Stacey Staley, Kérastase Canada’s Artistic Director, this season, we’re determined to master these three easy up-dos. No blow-dry necessary. See the full photo shoot featured in the August Issue of Canadian Living.


Calling all long-locked beauties. If you’ve ever been on the fence about trading-in your lengths for a dramatic bob, then this casual look is perfect for you. Isn’t it about having your cake and eating it too? This look is ideal for sprucing up day-before-wash hair. Watch the video here

To get the full look, shop V.I.P. Volume In Powder and Laque Couture, the products used by Stacey in this Casual Faux Bob.



The second look, the braid topknot, combines two of the hottest looks of the season. The braid trend spotted on runways goes to new heights as a dramatic (and oh-so-easy) topknot.

Watch Stacey in her 3 minute tutorial recreating this high-fashion look and to shop the look, checkout Laque Couture here.



Your final look: an elegant twisted knot with a soft side-sweep that’s ideal for long hair. Imaginative and impactful, you wouldn’t believe how simple it is. Just twist, knot and pin and your look is complete.

Watch Stacey create the twisted knot in just a few simple steps.
