Hair Made Simple

Growing up I had a tomboy for a mom and I also didn't get to spend a lot of time with my aunts. My sister did her hair often but I could never really understood how she was able to do it. This led me to wear my hair straight for many years throughout my life until I was around the age of eighteen. Now I have a few different hairstyles that I like use on a regular basis and though they are not stylist worthy they are, in fact, great for very simple and quick styles that anyone can do. All taking under five minutes to complete. Best used for extra busy days when you simply don't have enough time and still want to look done up or keep it interesting.

Tools Needed:

  • Hair Clip
  • Bobby pins
  • Volume Booster
  • Blow Dryer

Easy Loose Bun

This hairstyle works best if you use just cleaned towel dried hair. You will want to keep your hair damp, then apply the volume booster. I use Regis root boost volumizing foam. After that is done you can use a blow dryer to dry it and give it even more volume. Make sure you tip your head upside down and blow your roots out, this will give you the needed volume. Next you're going to take your near dry hair and pull it into a ponty tail style bunch. Instead of using a hair tie to fasten the hair you are going to wrap it around its self again and again to form a circle until it looks like the picture above. After that you can take a large hair clip and hold it in place so you can add the bobby pins for security. After you've place the pins you can take the clip out and pull the hair loose around your head to create the fanned out look. Any loose hairs and fly aways can be fixed with bobby pins or hair spray to hold them in place. Take a smaller clip to create a bump in the front using your bangs or style your bangs in your preferred way.

Tools Needed:

  • wet hair
  • styling gel

Beach Waves

To make the style you will want to have clean and wet hair. You will need some sort of style product or gel. I've used Aussie styling gel and a few other brands and each product makes a unique look compared to the rest. Try multiple products until you find one that creates the waves you want. To actually create the waves themselves you will want to part and brush your hair. Take one side of the front and pull it tightly behind your ear to create an outline of your face with the hair once it dries. After you've pulled your hair out of your face and behind your ear you can then add a little product to your hands and spread it evenly, then you will scrunch your hair up using flat palms facing the ceiling. As you move your palms upward scrunch your fingers and apply pressure. You can test out different pressures and lengths to scrunch it for to create many unique looks. Let it air dry to finish the style.

Tight Low Bun

Tools Needed:

  • hair/bobby pins
  • 1 hair tie
  • 1 sponge hair plate bun ring maker

Tight Low Bun

To achieve this elegant but casual bun you will first need to make a ponytail and fasten it with the hair tie. It should be just under halfway up your head. You will then create the bun with the hair plate bun ring maker by putting your hair through the opened slot and rolling it towards you. Once you get it tight near your head you're going to move the hair plate into the ring position. You will then need to spread the hair out to cover the ends and secure it using hair pins. You can place a few more around the bun for support.

Tools Needed:

  • Hair tie
  • Bobby Pins

Easy Messy Bun

This super simple hair style can be achieved in under 10 minutes and is great for a casual day or when you're running late. You're going to take your hair up as if you were going to put it in to a ponytail but when you go to twist the ponytail you will grab the looks hair and flip it upside down so its facing forward on your head and then you will finish the ponytail twist and put the ponytail over both the ponytail hair and the loose hanging hair and then fix to your desired look and position.

Tools Needed:

  • 3 clear hair ties or the black equivalent
  • A bow

Topsy Fish Tail

This style looks intricate but can be done in under 10 minutes, just pull your hair back into a rather tight pony tail in the middle of the back of your head. Create a hole at the base of the scalp and then flip the ponytail and hair inward and downward towards your head. Pull the hair all the way through and then add a second hair tie 1-2 inches down. Make a hole above the hairtie and flip the hair through again. Get the third hairtie and thread your hair through partially until it looks like a cute knob or fish tail.

Easiest Curled Hair

Tools Needed:

  • 1 hair tie
  • 3 clips
  • any size curling iron

Lazy Curls

This overly easy way to curl hair is absolutely genius . You simply throw your hair up into a ponytail close to the front of your head and then separate the ponytail into three sections using the clips. You will then curl each section, doing them one at a time. Clip the section out of the way once again when you've finished curling each of them. Once you have all three sections curled you can take the clips and ponytail out carefully. You will be left with perfectly curled hair in about half the time. You can use any size curling iron and also separate it into more sections to create many different and unique styles.

High Loose Bun

Tools Needed:

  • 1 hair tie
  • hair pins
  • large donut hair bun maker

High Tight Bun

To make this high bun you will need to create the bangs first in any way you prefer to do them and then make a high ponytail. It should be almost on top of your head but just slightly lower. Using the largest Donut bun maker you will roll your hair into the bun and then pull the hair to tighten it and also so you can create the loosened look. Fasten the hairstyle and any loose stray hairs in place with hair pins to complete the process. A large bow is always a great addition for the younger females to add extra flare and to create a bold hairstyle.

Natural Waves

Tools Needed:

  • wet hair

Natural Waves

This is the simplest style of them all but the catch here is that it only works if you have naturally straight or wavy hair. I am of the naturally wavy category though my waves look awful if I just brush my hair. What you will need to do to get this hairstyle is to wash your hair like usual, brush it and make your hairline but then while it is still wet you will need to use your hand, palm facing up, to squish your hair between your fingers. Do this a few times to your desired waviness and touch up as necessary while it dries by squishing again when needed. If you put your hair behind your ears very tightly it also helps those spots to wave and also it will out line your face. After all of this is done your hair should dry in a more beautiful and natural waved look.

      I really like your hairstyle pictures! If my hair were longer, I'd try them. Good hub!

      A interesting hub. I just keep mine short, it's less bother. I also have it trimmed, etc. at a hairdressing school - it's cheaper and helps the young students to have real heads to work on. The teachers always fix any mistakes (usually because not enough hair has been trimmed as the students are rather timid).
