One thing people don’t seem to realize about me is that I have very straight hair naturally. If I don’t brush it and sleep on it while wet, it comes out much like it is in this post. If I blow-dry it without trying to straighten it (brush through, blow dry, done) it comes out like the above.
Coming into fall, I feel like letting my hair be its natural self more often (less curling), but I also still want to do something with it! And I’m not one to spend hours on my hair, so if you’re like me and you want a few quick-and-easy ideas on ways to style your hair(read: no curling, straightening, or even drying required): here are mine. None of these took more than five minutes.
Part hair in the middle, braid small sections of either side, pin back. Easy peezy, lemon squeezy!
For this, I part my hair a bit more to one side than I usually would. And then, it’s just French braid the front-most part, leaving a layer of hair to cover where it’s pinned, and done!
Add a little extra detail to the usual bump: gather a small front section of your hair, roll downwards from the ends, and pin in place.
And, if you have to be fancy but don’t want to spend too much time on your hair: pull it back into a sleek, low ponytail, separate into several sections, and wrap each section loosely around the ponytail until your hair is secure but still messy. I love this one!
While we’re on the subject of hair: you should check out Tresemme’s Liquid Gold Shine Therapy. It is the best; after bleaching my hair, I was left with some pretty scraggly strands that tangled like crazy and looked dry and straw-like. But after using the Shine Therapy once, my hair went from straw tangles to smooth and shiny. Seriously a miracle product.
What are your favorite easy ways to style your hair?
P.S. Just as I am really in love with the cardigan, I also adore this necklace from Oasap! It’s adjustable– which is a big thing for me– and goes with everything. I’ve worn it enough that I got a sunburn in the shape of the leaf when we went hiking. Ha!
