Looking to try something new with your hair? Here are seven styles that are quick and easy and that look great!
1. Voluminous Curls
Adding curls and volume is a great way to update your look with little effort. Start with a curling iron or all you need is a large barrel curling iron or, better yet, a volume building hot air styler. Dry you roots, blowing your hair upward to create volume. Then, section your hair and style it in pieces to create large curls. Tease your hair at the roots to add more volume and lightly fluff the curls with your fingers. Add hairspray, and you are ready to go! Need a good hot air styler to create your look? Click here for Babyliss big hair products.
2. Beachy Waves
A perfect look for spring and summer is sexy beach waves. Even if you don’t live near a beach or have a vacation planned, you can use a windswept beach look to add new interest to your hair. You can get the beachy waves look by using a few spritzes of texturizing spray and blow drying your hair upside down to add volume at the roots. Then, to add more texture, flip your hair over spritz again, and finish drying while scrunching your hair between your fingers for an informal wavy look.
3. Sleek and Straight
It is hard to go wrong with a sleek and straight hair style. However, you also must be careful not to go stick straight. You want some volume. Start by blowdrying your hair upwards at the roots to create some volume. Then, blow your hair straight with a round brush and finish off by using a flat iron to fully straighten your hair, if you need a good iron, you can find a range of hair straighteners from Argos. The trick to using the iron is to leave your root area alone and just straighten the ends or where you need it. That will keep your straight style from looking overly flat.
4. Sexy Waves
For long sexy waves, wrap your hair around a curling iron without clamping your hair in the iron. You can prep your hair by using a light mousse or styling lotion so that the wave pattern will set well and stay in place longer. But, if your hair curls easily, you can also avoid these.
5. Knotted Hair
Knotting your hair allows for a fun and easy updo looks. Grab some hair pins and a brush or comb to create this easy style. You make one knot, or make several, it is up to you. While your hair is damp, section it off and slowly twist your hair until you’ve reached your scalp. Once you have the knot where you would like it to be, use a hair pin to pin it into place. Very easy!
6. Braided Bun
Try this new take on the bun. Take small sections of your hair and braid it close to your scalp, leaving the ends free. Collecting the ends and bottom part of your hair into one big bun.
7. French Twist
A casual chignon or french twist is the perfect classic style. French twists can be done easily with bobby pins and by sweeping your hair off to the side. Place a bobby pin in your hair vertically and continue to place them vertically in a criss cross pattern up your scalp. Gather your hair in one handful and twist it and place more bobby pins to hold it in place. Use hairspray to hold the style in place.
