5 Easy Back to School Hairstyles
We all have those mornings where we are rushing out the door, which makes it really good for our outfit to look like we didn’t get dressed in the dark, our makeup to look like a 5 year old didn’t draw it on, and our hair to not look like we just walked through a wind tunnel. So as long as you can manage to get your outfit and make up looking right, I’ve got you covered with these 5 easy hair tricks and tips.
The Twist and Pin
Start off this look with using an anti frizz spray, such as, It’s a 10! (Amazon) (eBay) After misting this all over your hair, start taking random sections of your hair, twist them, and then pin them out of the way. Repeat until you get the desired look!
The Fake Blow-Dry
After prepping your hair with a heat protectant, once again, you can use It’s a 10 (my favorite miracle product), quickly blow dry your hair so that your hair is only a little damp. Then, wrap your hair into a bun and secure it down with one or two bobby pins. While on your way to school or work, leave it in, then once you’ve arrived, take out the bun and shake your hair out. This will give you a blow-dried look with minimal effort. The higher the bun, the more volume your hair will have, the lower the bun, the less.
This is an under-rated product. A headband is the perfect tool to save yourself in a hair disaster. Just throw a head band on, and the rest of your hair into a bun, ponytail, or braid. For a fancier look, try a jeweled or beaded head band.
The Messy Side Braid
Some people say they aren’t good at braiding, so the messy side braid is perfect. Throw your hair to the side, take three sections and start braiding! It doesn’t have to look perfect! After you’ve thrown a ponytail to fasten the braid together, pull random section of the braid to loosen it and give it a messier effect.
The Concealed Ponytail
Tame all your hair in a low side ponytail by using some Redken Water Wax.(Amazon) (eBay) Once your hair is secured into a low side ponytail, take an outside section of the hair and wrap it around the ponytail holder, securing it with one bobby pin underneath.
Voila! There you ladies go! Each hair trick should take you no more than 5 minutes to do, but will pull your whole look together so that you never leave your house looking like a complete wreck ever again!
