The golden age of airport style from the 50s to 70s saw women decked out in clinched-waisted suits, fur-lined coats and coiffed hairstyles. Glamorous women such as Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn were the embodiment of ‘travelling in style’. Today, a quick scan of the crowds at Heathrow and the reality sets in - at this moment, we couldn't be further away from that golden era. But that shouldn't stop you from stepping up your beauty game. Here’s a list of the latest beauty products and in-flight hairstyles you should use on your next flight out.

A Top Bun

To create a messy-yet-glamourous bun start by spritzing on generous amounts of dry shampoo on your hair to give it more texture, then tie a tight ponytail. Twist the ponytail into a bun by tucking the end of the hair below the bun. Finish the look by spraying on L’oreal’s Elnett Satin Volume Extra Strength Hairspray £2.99 to give your tresses a perfect, polished finish. Don’t worry about it looking too messy - a bun always has some carelessly strewn strands falling around.

Structured Waves

One of the most popular hairstyles for the year 2016 are soft-yet-structured voluminous waves. Here’s how you can achieve the look : Start with a shampoo and conditioning routine then cover your wet mane with a volumanizer - we love Label M's Extra Strong Mousse £8.95. Next, use a blow dryer to dry while you ruffle your hair with your fingers - giving it the desired shape. Using hair pins, pull the wavy messy locks on one side and secure.

Braid It

If you’re the kind of traveller that treasures comfort but believes in staying stylish at all times, we would recommend going for a neat, easygoing braid. Pick up any tabloid magazine and you’ll notice that it is the celebrity hairstyle of the moment. To put it together create a loose 3-strand braid at the back of your head and secure with a thin elastic band. Finish the look by spraying on Joico Flip Turn Volumizing Finishing Spray £9.15 all over, to set the look and tame flyways. This fuss-free look is perfect for overnight flights when you’re looking forward to getting a goodnight’s rest.

On The Go Styling

When you’re travelling in style there are several extra (travel-sized) additions you need to make to your handbag. Superdrug’s Hairspray Firm £0.89 is a super affordable teeny tiny product that will rescue you when your hairstyle refuses to stay in place. And for the end of the flight before you step out of the airport, a bottle of Batiste’s Tropical Shampoo is sure to freshen up your head and get you ready to take on the rest of the day.
