    Slick Bun
    Best for: Medium to long, straight hair
    How to: To truly showcase your face, slick back your hair into a sleek, wet bun like Heidi Klum. Apply a shine serum or spray to hair, brush back, and twist it into a low bun. Use bobby pins where needed to hide stray hairs!

  • Low, Wet Pony 6 of 10
    Low, Wet Pony
    Best for: Long hair, wavy or curly
    How to: Scrunch hair slightly, comb hair back into a low pony, then scrunch the hair coming out of the pony again. For the final touch, spray a shine serum or gentle hold hairspray to tame flyaways.

  • Finger Wave, Slicked-Back Hair 7 of 10
    Finger Wave, Slicked-Back Hair
    Best for: Straight hair
    How to: Apply a thick, smooth gel all over really wet hair to set it in place. Comb your hair forward into the direction you want the first finger wave to go, then start combing it in the opposite way so that you start to create a bit of a wave in the hair. Now, you can hold the wave and then keep doing the same thing on the whole head.

  • Long Braid 8 of 10
    Long Braid
    How to: Apply a strong hold cream on wet hair, starting from the roots and moving down to the ends using only your fingers. Next comb the hair back away from the forehead with the help of a fine-tooth comb and secure it with an elastic, creating a tight, high ponytail. Then braid the end of the ponytail and secure the bottom with elastic to complete the style.

  • Short, Straight, Sophisticated Updo 9 of 10
    Short, Straight, Sophisticated Updo
    Best for: Short to medium straight hair
    How to: Apply a generous amount of styling gel to wet hair and comb through. Immediately gather your bangs (or a small section near the top of your head) and pin them back using bobby pins. Brush the rest of your hair back and tie it with an elastic. If it's not long enough, secure it up in pieces using bobby pins.

  • The Heidi Wet Braid 10 of 10
    The Heidi Wet Braid
    Best for: Long hair, straight or wavy
    How to: Part your hair down the middle into two sections. Braid each section and secure with an elastic band — I like the clear ones so they won't show. Then pull each braid up and over your head and pin, then tuck ends under braids to finish.
