From classic country curls to her signature bob moment, here are all the tips and tricks you need to nail Taylor Swift’s best hair styles. No matter the Era you choose as your favourite!

The Reputation Era: Perfect for platinum

The look of this Era was all heavy eyeliner and an edgy pout. Supplemented with platinum blonde locks to tie in her bold look. While colouring is a job best left to the professionals, a colour concentrate treatment is key when it comes to refreshing your blonde between salon visits. Our suggestion is the Revlon Professional Nutri Color Filter in White Platinum. A 3-in-1 product that will rejuvenate, repair and add shine. So, you’ll never have bad blood with your hair.

The Country Era: Time for tight ringlets

For those hoping to channel Taylor’s country era – complete with cowboy boots and her signature tight ringlets – here’s how….

Start with clean, dry hair and apply a heat protectant (such as the Joico Defy Damage Protective Shield ). Section your hair into small sections and use a curling wand or iron with a small barrel size. Wrap each section around the barrel, hold for 5-10 seconds, then release. Allow the curls to cool, apply hairspray for hold, and finger comb for a natural look. Optionally, use shine serum for extra shine. Practice and patience will help you perfect the technique for the kind of love story locks that you’ll just say yes to!

Handy hack: The Mermade Hair Air Curl can help recreate a similar look in half the time! While the Hair Gem Stamper, is sure to add a bejewelled touch to your hairstyle.

The 1989 Era: All about a bob

As Taylor’s music started to change, so did her hairstyles. Swift’s classic bob haircut marked a moment in music history, the start of the 1989 Era. Get Taylor’s look of a full and radiant bob with the Revlon Professional Style Masters Modular Mousse. For extra volume, apply the mousse to the roots and blow-dry your bob upside down. If you’re hoping to start a new Era in your life, then the bob is one of Taylor Swift’s best hair styles to help you do so!

The Red Era: A classic fringe

Taylor’s iconic Red Era brought front fringes and curtain bangs back in style. If you’re embracing this era, the best way to complement your red lips (non-negotiable) is to complete the look with a sleek lock and a poker-straight fringe.

The key to this look is healthy hair. So tend to your tresses with a luxurious deep conditioning mask. Try the Paul Mitchell Marula Oil Rare Oil Intensive Hair Masque. Which hydrates and adds fullness to limp hair and is packed with antioxidants, protein and vitamins to seal split ends and prevent damage.  

Follow this with a good blow dry, and slick with a straightener. We love the ghd Chronos – which will give you the hair of your wildest dreams.
