7 Hairstyles You Can Do in 10 Minutes Flat
We challenged one woman to try a new hairstyle every day for an entire week. The catch? She had to do each in 10 minutes or less. Steal her ideas now.
Day 1: Starting smallI'll admit, I'm not really sure where to start with this dare. I straightened my hair the night before, so I start playing around with it -- and end up with this look. My plan was to do twists on both sides of my head, but I love how sweet (and simple) the first one looks, so I just keep it that way. I think it keeps my hair from looking too boring, and it's actually really quick to do.
Step 1: First, I mist my hair with heat-protectant spray (try Suave Professionals Heat Protection Spray, $3.50). Then, I run a flat iron over small sections of my hair until all of it's straight.
Step 2: I want to make the twist stand out more, so I use this trick from stylist Garret Dunton: "Don't just grab and twist one large section of hair; instead, start small with a 1-inch section near your part and gather hair as you tightly twist down your hairline."
Step 3: Once the twist reaches my ear, I secure it in place by crossing two bobby pins where it ends.
Step 4: Lastly, I bring some hair over my ear to hide the pins, and mist the entire look with anti-frizz hairspray to tame flyaways.
