Mornings are tough. You’re in a foggy state, most-likely rushing to work or school. The last thing you want to do is bust out some elaborate hairstyle. If you’re wanting to add a little something extra to your typical hairstyle but have no time – I’ve got you covered! I’ve come up with a cute hairstyle that takes less than 5-minutes and can be work to work, school or any other event you’re attending last minute! Make sure to read until the end of the post as I’m sharing a hack to keeping your hair fresh in between washes!
Step 1: Create a Twist
After brushing through your hair you can either part it to the side or down the middle. Since I always part mine down the middle I decided to change things up and part it to the side. Now for the fun part – create a twist! grab a 1-1.5 inch section of hair from the side of your face. Divide it in two sections then twist it tightly together.
Step 2: Secure Twist
Take your twist and wrap it around your head. Then take 2-3 bobby pins and secure your twist. To make sure your twist stays in place, apply your bobby pins in an x shape, overlapping each other. This will allow your twist to last throughout the day!
Step 3: Fluff Twist
To add volume, carefully tug at the outer edges of the twist. This will loosen the twist and make it appear larger. You may need to re-secure your twist with bobby pins after fluffing your twist! To finish off the look, apply your favorite hairspray to the twist to keep it locked in place.
Voila! This look takes under 5 minutes to complete and will spice up your go-to everyday hairstyle!
And now for a bonus hair hack…
I have discovered an exciting new hack to keeping your hair fresh and clean in between washes! If you’re like me and washes your hair a couple times of week – this will be a lifesaver. The hack: activated charcoal. Um, what now?! You heard that right – Pantene has launched a Charcoal Collection including a Shampoo and Conditioner, which contains activated charcoal to gently purify your hair by absorbing impurities, like a magnetic attraction. This allows your hair to detox hair by attracting impurities and releasing antioxidants! How cool is that?! The formula, including activated charcoal, will allow you to have more great hair days in between washes. The shampoo and conditioner both have a heavenly scent (not too strong!) and keeps your hair extra shiny throughout the week. The duo contains a blend of pro-vitamin b5, activated charcoal, and antioxidants. Both products are free of silicone, parabens and dyes.
