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, or straight hair that's been curled with a 1-inch barrel iron
Stuff to have handy:
· Shine serum
· Light-hold hairspray
· 6-10 small bobby pins
· 2 large bobby pins
· Rat-tail comb or pencil
How to get this easy updo for long hair:
Start by refining your curls. For straight hair, use the curling iron to add curl. For curly or wavy hair, smooth over hair with shine serum to eliminate frizz.
Tease a very small section of hair in the back of your head near the crown. This is the place where you will anchor your bobby pins.
Part hair in the center or slightly off center (stylist's choice).
This hairstyle is created using the "pin and drape" method. To do this, loosely take locks of hair and bobby pin them to the section you previously teased. Use small bobby pins, and hide them as well as you can.
Once all of your hair is pinned up, slide a pencil or the tail of a rat-tail comb under the section of hair in front of the pins and pull up slightly on it to add volume.
Lightly mist hairspray all over.
Attach a bobby pin or small clip to your favorite flower/brooch. It should be placed in your hair somewhere in between the back of your ear and the back of your head. Secure with two large bobby pins.
Step 8 (optional)
Loosen up one or two small pieces in front if you want some free-flowing wispy hairs around your face.
