Do you have difficult hair that has a mind of its own? Fret no more! This article will provide you with instructions on how to get your hair away from your face, with all sorts tips and tricks to style your stubborn hair that you can use for any style!
If you want to rock a ballerina bun, but find yourself giving up after endless fails, we urge you to give this look a try just one last time after reading these tips. You’ve probably read over and over again that it’s best to construct this look with freshly washed and conditioned, combed and dried hair. Sure, this works excellent for those who have straight, less difficult to work with hair, but this will only make things harder for you. To achieve this look with stubborn hair you’ll need to do things a bit differently. If you know ahead of time that you want to wear a ballerina bun, don’t shampoo your hair in the shower. Slather on some conditioner and let it sit on your locks while you wash up, just don’t forget to rinse before you get out of the shower. Instead of wrapping your in a bath towel, use an old t-shirt, this will make your hair less frizzy than if you were to use a normal towel. When you’re ready, use a wide toothed comb to thoroughly detangle your locks. Before pulling your hair up into a bun, apply a small amount of hair gel to the top and front portions of your hair. Then use a brush to pull back that frontal hair backwards and upwards, this will make sure that all your hair stays down and in place as it dried throughout the day. Wrap your hair into a ballerina bun and don’t worry about your hair all day!
If you envy your thinner-haired friends for their low chignons, then you’ll love the tips you’re about to read! Begin with washed and dried hair; it’s totally fine if it’s not freshly cleaned but you should be sure that there isn’t any product already in your hair. Use a comb to be sure that there aren’t any tangles in your tresses, then spritz some shine spray on your locks (shine serum works too) then use a comb or brush to work the product throughout the hair. Pull your hair into a low bun, but before wrapping the elastic around it, give it a bit of a loosening shake so that some side pieces slip out of your grip. Use an elastic to wrap your hair into a low chignon (like a loose and low bun). Finally, use a small curling iron to give those loose pieces a bit of body with a twist. Finally, spritz on some hairspray and you’re good to go.
Of course, you can deal with your stubborn hair by getting it out of your face as explained above, but you should also be sure that you’re giving your hair the proper maintenance that it needs. This means getting your hair trimmed regularly, not over-using heat tools, and showing your locks some attention by putting on a conditioning mask every week or so.
