If you have always wanted to become a hairstyle expert of sorts but lack the skills to do so, fret not. Having admirable hair need not require a course in hairdressing. Nor should it take an hour of your time! Heed these hairstyle strategies for a ‘do that’s worthy of a double take from those who pass you by:
Short Hair Help
If you have short hair (mid-chin to pixie length) that’s not fit for tying, the best way to jazz it up is to invest in
- hair accessories and
- using a hair product for shaping your short tresses. Try using elastic headbands or mini jeweled clips for an “attach and go” take on hair styling – as all you need to do is wear them and you’re good to go! For shape and additional style, play around with a pliable hair product to create spikes, form a part on your hair that stays put, or slick back your hair for a whole-day-long wet look.
Mid Length Hair Improver
Got mid-length hair (past the chin to just resting above the shoulders)? Add style quickly by creating zigzags on your hair part. Part a chunk closest to your forehead the usual way, then take another chunk and part it just a little bit more to the left or right. Take a chunk further down the line and part it the opposite way. Apply a bit of Argan hair gloss serum to keep flyaways down and make your hair look shinier. You may opt to tie the end into a low ponytail for when you want to look neat yet still maintain the zigzag hair part, or keep the ends loose for a more carefree look.
Long Hair Style Ideas
Long hair (past your shoulders) is super fun to play and create styles with. Do a high ponytail to give off a cheerleader vibe (taking care to curl the tip a bit for a bit of a playful flair). French braid a slightly damp hair before leaving the home, then let it loose once you get to school or the office for beautiful waves that required neither heat nor curler. Up the style ante with a “Yorkie” look – gather the topmost part of your hair as if you are going to make a thin but high ponytail, bump it up to about three inches from your forehead hair line, then secure the ends atop the rest of your hair with bobby pins. If you’ve got more time to play with hair tools, consider quickly blow-drying your entire head of hair and then loosely curl the ends of your hair (divide it into five or six sections) to give it a bit of bounce.
Loving these ideas? Before implementing any of them, take note that the best type of hair to start off with is hair that is healthy and strong. Use natural hair care products (organic shampoos and conditioners, masks, oils and sprays, etc.) that deliver a world of goodness to your hair to have it in good condition before you even start to do anything to it.
