The Lazy Girl's Guide to Holiday Party Hair
I love fashion. I spend so much time dreaming up and searching for the perfect outfit for every occasion. And if I can't find exactly what I want, I'm known for altering pieces to fit my needs. But when it comes to doing my hair I'm so lazy. L A Z Y. 10 minutes is about the maximum I can spend doing my hair before I start going crazy. My everyday hair routine consists of spraying in some It's a 10 leave-in conditioner and maybe running a comb through. And, my hair is super straight and flat and lifeless. So, most days my hair ends up in a ponytail or messy bun.
With the holidays coming up, I'm trying to get creative when it comes to styling my hair. After all, an outfit isn't complete without complimenting hair and makeup. All of the following styles are super easy and took less than 10 minutes:
1. Flat-Iron Waves
You've probably heard of this one a million times, but it seriously is SO easy and SO cute. To get these waves, I took about 1-inch sections of hair and ran a flat-iron down it, alternating flipping the flat-iron up and down. You don't have to hit every piece of hair and you don't have to worry about each strand looking perfect - they are meant to be messy waves. To hold the waves, I use Redkin Wax Blast spray. It adds texture and tames fly-aways. There are also a million tutorials on how to get waves using a flat-iron...so if you need visual instructions just head on over to youtube.
2. Dutch Braid Faux- Hawk
This style might be a little tricky if you're not good at braiding. A dutch braid is like a french braid, but instead of weaving the strands overtop of each other you weave them underneath. I sectioned off a 2-inch section of hair down the center and braided from the front all the way back to the crown of my head, and secured with a small rubber band. It's so easy and unexpected and keeps the hair off your face. I LOVE this style.
3. Twist Braids:
Here is one that's super easy even if you don't know how to braid. Part your hair down the middle, then section off 1-inch sections on each side of your part. Start at your hairline and twist two pieces of hair around each other, adding a little hair to each strand as you work your way to the crown of your head. Secure at the back with bobby pins. You can add more twists to switch up this style and make it your own.
All of these styles are as easy as they seem, and look so cute! Try one out and see for yourself...
