17 Hairstyles That Take Less Than 10 Minutes
Easy buns, twists and updos for every day of the week -- and then some
· Curly or wavy hair in any length
· Straight-haired girls can pull it off too with five extra minutes of curling iron time
Stuff to have handy:
· 1-inch curling iron
· Bobby pins
· Clip (to keep hair out of the way)
How to get this easy updo for long hair:
Run your index fingers from mid-ears toward the back of your head until they touch at the back of your head. Pin up the top half of your hair to get it out of the way for now.
Gather the bottom of your hair at the base of your neck. Now, make a "roller" out of two fingers, and fold your hair up to the clipped section. (See inset photo No.1.) Bobby-pin it in place. Messy is fine; the pins will be hidden by the curls you'll make on top.
Remove the top clip and free the sides of your hair. Re-clip the top bang section.
Pull a side section down and back (the direction is important), then twist upward and secure with bobby pins so it lays flat. (See inset photo No.2.) Repeat with other side.
Now comes the fun part: curls. Holding the iron horizontally, wrap a 1-inch section of hair from the crown of your head around the barrel. After five to 10 seconds, unwind it and stretch the curl back 'til it hangs over the bobby pins from step 1. Be sure to break up the curl a little with your fingers.
Repeat until you've curled the whole top section and mist with hairspray.
