Loose Curled Style
Wearing loose curls is one of the most fantastic ways to look your best throughout the day – and the best part is, anyone can complete the look. There is nothing difficult or time-consuming about it – and the simplicity of it all is intriguing in itself. This look is perfect for a day out shopping, or taking in some of the local museums. To get a loose curled style in under 5 minutes, put all of your hair into a high ponytail and curl small sections of hair by wrapping around a curling wand, flat iron, or curling iron. Once all of the hair has been curled, spray with hairspray and tousle. Gently remove your hair elastic and allow your hair to gently come down. Tousle gently and spray again with a little more hairspray to set the style in place for the day.
Updo’s are usually a painstaking, time-consuming process – but not anymore! With this simple updo style, you will look like you fit in and belong among the locals in Europe. Create a simple chignon style, which is a soft looking, elegant bun, by taking all of your hair and holding it as if you were going to put it into a ponytail. From there, twist all of the hair from root to tip and begin wrapping around the base of the head. Be sure the style stays flush (or flat) to the head, and secure with bobby pins. Allow a few whisps of hair to fall around your face to frame it, and spray your hair with some mega hold hairspray.
A different take on the lovely chignon hair style is the headband chignon. If you’re super pressed for time but want a gorgeous style, this is the one you should opt for! Put an elastic headband on your head as you normally would. From there, separate the back of your hair into two sections. Twist the hair as you would with a typical chignon, and roll it up, tucking it into the headband. Complete the same on the other section. This style doesn’t even require any bobby pins unless you have stray hair you can’t really stand to leave alone! This also works very well for women with short bob length hair.
