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 3: Braiding pays offThis is pretty much just a one-sided French braid, and then I tie all my hair into a bun. So while it may seem complicated, it's a lot easier than it looks (and definitely worth trying). I don't typically braid my hair, so I really enjoy all the compliments I get from my co-workers today.
Step 1: You can start with either a middle or side part for this look (I go with a slightly off-center part -- my attempt to be unique).
Step 2: I rub some styling mousse between my fingers before I start braiding (try Pureology Colour Stylist Silk Bodifier Volumizing Mousse, $24). When you're working with your natural hair texture, this helps you grip your hair better, says O'Neil.
Step 3: I then French-braid my hair from the part all the way back down one side, angling it toward the back of my neck. I secure the bottom of the braid to my head using bobby pins (since I have to let go of the braid to finish the hairstyle).
Step 4: Lastly, I comb the remaining hair (including the end of the French braid) to the nape of my neck, and wrap it all into a chignon. You can center this, or you can tie it slightly to one side (go the opposite direction of your part).
