Last week I wrote about some fun movie styles, including fun hairstyles. But, while those styles created a great look, they weren’t quick fixes.
This week, I wanted to look at a few five-minute hair fixes that I love, particularly in the summer when the heat and humidity can make those tresses wild.
One of the easiest ways to fix your hair is grabbing a bottle of Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. I love the stuff. You spray it on your dry hair and style as it builds in volume and texture, absorbing oil at the roots. This works great on a hot day when you want to style a few soft curls and leave your hair down or if you want to try one of the messy updos that are popular this summer.
Because it’s supposed to look soft, with flyaways and rogue curls refusing to be trapped, the messy updo becomes a quick and easy way to make troublesome hair look nice when it simply won’t behave. “Hair jewelry” is the accessory of the moment, and some fancy clips and hairbands make this look more sophisticated. It’s the perfect pairing for a summer dress or peasant top.
The other approach is to style a long, sleek ponytail in back and you’ve got summer style in no time. A hair comb with a bit of sparkle can take that ponytail from the grocery store to an office party. Check out this pretty handcrafted hair bling on Etsy.
To keep it all looking sleek and under control, try a little smoothing serum, such as Oribe’s Smooth Style Serum. That will help tame the frizz and give it some moisture and hold when you fashion the ponytail.
If your hair’s too short for a ponytail, just slip a hairband into place or maybe use a few strategically placed decorative barrettes.
With a couple great hair products at hand and a few cute accessories, you can have fabulous hair in five minutes — or less!
