Hair in a Hurry

Here are 4 quick hair styles that will get you looking fabulous & on your way! 

All of these hair styles can honestly be done in less than 5 minutes, making them perfect for days on the run. I am definitely guilty of hitting the snooze button a few two many times and these quick styles have saved the day too many times to count! When I know its going to be an early morning, I wash my hair at night and curl it before bed. In the morning I am left with lovely loose waves that act as the perfect base for these simple styles!

You Need: 2 small elastics, bobby pins, hairspray

1. Grab 2 sections of hair from behind your ears & quickly braid each section (The looser the bread the more casual the look)
2. Put the rest of your hair in a pony tail or clip to keep it out of the way and then cross the braids over the top of your head to create a 'headband'
3. Securely pin the end of each braid to the side of your head.  Its easiest to loosely pin one braid and then the other and then tighten the first braid with an extra pin. 
4. Let down the rest of your hair and tease the crown.  Mist with hairspray and you're done!


You Need: 1 hair elastics, bobby pins, hairspray

1. Tease the crown of your hair and then create a high ponytail.  The ponytail should be placed where you want to bun to ultimately sit.
2. Tease the entire ponytail to give the hair more texture and volume
3. Gently wrap the ponytail around its base, creating a bun.  Begin pinning the bun into place.
4. Continue pinning loose or out of place pieces until the bun has the desired look.  Mist with hairspray and your'e done!

You Need: 1 hair elastic, hairspray

1. Tease the crown of your hair and use an elastic to gently pull up the top half of your hair.
2. Take the hair in the elastic and split into two pieces right above the elastic. 
3. Flip the hair below the elastic through the hole you created and pull through completely to create a twist.
4. Loosen the sides, mist with hairspray and your'e done!

You Need: 1-2 bobby pins

1. Create a deep side part with just the front 'bangs' section of your hair.
2. Grab the hair on the parted side and start twisting as you follow the hair line, grabbing additional hair as you twist
3. Once you have reached the other side (about eyebrow level), stop adding more hair and twist the current piece until it is twisted to the ends.
4. Pin the twist to the side of your head, mist with hairspray and you're done! (I usually lift a flap of hair and pin the twist beneath it so the bobby pins are not visible)

Happy Styling!
