Regardless of whether you are heading to school, or a day at the office, we all have those mornings where we are rushing out the door or have days when we just don’t want to spend a lot of time curling and styling our hair. On those days we need an arsenal of quick and easy looks that will take us through the day while still looking amazing. Below we are going to give you some great looks to incorporate into your wardrobe and are versatile enough for any occasion.
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 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 pomade or styling product of your choice. 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.
These looks are great for when you are short on time or want a quick hairstyle that still looks amazing. Each hair style should take you no more than 5 minutes to do, but will still give your overall look a polished and finished look. To make these styles even more elegant, try adding a small decorative headband, or use rhinestone bobby-pins to secure your hair. These will add elegant touched to take your look from day to night.
