Long hair can be difficult to style. Especially when you’re in a rush. Today I’m sharing an easy 5 minute hairstyle you can re-create in under 5 minutes. It’s super easy and cute – promise!
Easy 5-Minute Heatless Hairstyle
Step 1: Prime Your Hair
A good hairstyle always begins with great hair products. To tame your hair from this ruthless humidity, it’s important to use hair products geared towards frizz reduction. Make sure to select a shampoo and conditioner appropriate for your hair (dry, frizzy, colored etc.).
Step 2: Divide Hair Into Pigtails
The great thing about this look is you can begin with straight, curled or somewhere-in-between hair. That’s right – no styling ahead of time required. I just so happened to create this look a few days after curling my hair. Another bonus: you can either part your hair to the side or down the middle. I chose to part it down the middle for a more symmetrical look. Then, using clear elastics put your hair into pigtails.
Step 3: Apply Another Elastic & Do The Twist
Apply another clear elastic into your hair 2-3 inches below your first elastic. Then, divide the hair in between elastics – creating a hole. Take the remainder of your hair and bring it up (towards your body) and feed it into the hole. Pull the hair through completely. Your hair should look like the photo above!
Step 4: Repeat Step 3
Depending on your hair length, if you hair allows it repeat step 3! Secure another elastic 2-3 inches below your first elastic. Then, create another hole in your hair and pull your hair through! The rest of your hair should hang underneath.
Step 5: Fluff The Braids
Now it’s time to create some volume! Pull on the outer edges of your hair to exaggerate your braids. The bigger, the better! Don’t be afraid to get messy with it! This look doesn’t have to be polished. In fact, the messier, the better!
Step 6: Extend The Life Of Your Look
To finish off the look, apply your favorite hairspray or finishing spray to lock in your look!
