17 Hairstyles That Take Less Than 10 Minutes
Easy buns, twists and updos for every day of the week -- and then some
· Medium to long hair
· Blow-dried straight hair that has some volume
Stuff to have handy:
· Sectioning clip (see photo)
· Lots of bobby pins
· Shine spray
How to get this easy updo for long hair:
Split hair in half, creating a top and a bottom section.
Clip the top section out of the way.
In a messy, rough way, create a mini-French twist using the bottom section (see inset photo No.2) and pin with bobby pins. Don't worry about what this looks like; it will be covered eventually.
Once the bottom is secured, release the top section and create a side part.
Tease the crown area of your head to add volume. Spray hairspray underneath that teased area for hold.
Gather the top section as if you're going to make a ponytail, but don't. Instead, tuck and roll the section inward into a French twist.
Using several large bobby pins, slide them along the inside seams of the twist to secure. Using smaller bobby pins, secure the outside of the French twist seam by tucking them into the hair.
Smooth out the front if it looks messy then do a spritz of shine spray followed by hairspray.
