Back to school is all about fresh starts. When the shopping is finished and your class schedule is lined up, it's time to start thinking about the details, like what you'll do with your hair!
These easy hairstyles will help you get out the door quickly without sacrificing style.
Get a glam look without taking up a lot of time with no heat curls. First thing in the morning, pull your hair into a ponytail.
Take a small section of the ponytail and spray it with foundation mist from Oribe to reactivate the products in your hair. Then, wrap it around two of your fingers, starting at the bottom, until you get to the base of the ponytail.
Clip the curl down. Continue until all of your hair is clipped in curls. Go through the rest of your morning routine while letting your hair dry. Then, take out the clips and let your bouncy curls down.
An Overnight Fix
When you're up late studying, the last thing you want to do is get up early to fix your hair the next morning. The good news is that you can set curls overnight. Just put an elastic headband around your head. Take small sections of hair and wrap them around the headband, one at a time. (Be sure to push the headband up off your forehead and into your hairline to avoid lines on your face!) When you wake up, unwrap the sections and enjoy your instant curls.
Another way to get gorgeous, hassle-free curls is to to sleep in braids.
Update The Ponytail
The ponytail is the ultimate lazy morning hairstyle. Give the easy option an update to get compliments on your effortless look. A knotted ponytail will do the trick.
Start by pulling all of your hair to one side. Take out the longest section of hair, pull it around the rest of the hair, and create a knot around it. Take out another long section of hair, add it to the first, and create another knot. Repeat this step one more time, then secure the entire ponytail with an elastic.
Bad Hair Day Solution
Bad hair days are a fact of life. Luckily, braids are an easy fix that are also super on trend. The fishtail braid is an easy option that looks like it took much longer that it really did.
A braided crown is a great way to hide unwashed hair when you don't have time to wash, dry, and style. Get creative and try some new styles to be prepared to battle bad hair days all school year.
