We're back at it again, giving you even more tricks to get the hair that you've always wanted. These super easy hairstyle hacks shouldn't take more than just a few minutes, and they use items that you most likely already have in your house.
To get the longest lasting natural curls in only a little bit of time, all you have to do is grab some tin foil. Simply roll your hair into a coil, rap the coil in tin foil, and press it with your flat iron. The foil conducts the iron's heat and keeps the hair coiled while it cools.
1 Minute Up Do
This is the perfect do for the lazy girl in you. On days you just don't want to try take your hair in two pieces and tie it in a double knot. Then pin the excess behind the knot. Add a cute bow or pin and Voila, you are ready to go.
Dry Shampoo at Night
To tired to shower? Don't want to wake up early to shower? Use dry shampoo at night before you go to bed. It sucks up all the excess oil so you wake up with voluminous and natural looking hair.
If you have really slippery hair spin pins are going to be your new best friend. These pins work way better than bobby pins because you screw them into your hair do. Now your top knots and ballerina buns will last all day!
Beyond A Shadow Of A Doubt
Eyeshadow isn't just for your eyes anymore. You can use eyeshadow that is the same color as your hair to make your hair appear fuller. Dust the eyeshadow along your part line. You could also use this along your hairline when you wear a ponytail.
Bangs Be Gone
Bangs are a great look for many girls, but there are times when you just need to get your hair away from your face. Whether your getting ready for a workout or just want to try a new look, you can use one small braid to take care of your bangs. Braid your bangs along your hairline and bobby pin them into place.
French maid or milkmaid braids are a unique hairstyle to try out. The look really pops when the braids are a little roughed up. You can use a toothbrush to easily texturize and tease the braids by brushing them in the opposite direction.
Immediate Headband Hairdo
You don't need to spend more than a few seconds to get an impressive updo; all you need is an elastic headband. Roll your hair around the back of the headband before you put it on. After you rest it on you head, you'll have an instant tunnel bun.
Instant Beach Look
A salt spray is essential for getting that "been at the beach all day" look. If you don't already have your own, then you can easily make it with just seltzer water and salt. Fill a spray bottle with 20 ounces of seltzer water and then add a teaspoon of sea salt.
Pull It Full
To get a full and thick braid that's sure to catch everyone's eyes, carefully widen the plait by pulling the pieces outward. Be careful not to pull too far or the braid could fall apart.
Removing Oil In A Pinch
Are you ever out with friends and notice that your hair is oilier than you had thought? Chances are you didn't bring blotting paper with you, but don't fear; a quick trip to the bathroom can save your hair. Toilet seat covers are made from a material very similar to blotting paper, so they can easily absorb the excess oil in your hair.
Masking Roots With Mascara
If you notice your roots coming back or any stray grays, you don't need to rush to the salon that day. A little mascara can go a long way when it comes to masking small hair imperfections. Be sure you wipe some of the product off before you apply it so it doesn't leave too much mascara on your scalp.
The Hidden Bobby Trick
You can have a chic braid without using those hair ties. Just tie the bottom of the braid into a knot and slide a bobby pin upwards into it so that it is hidden.
Well, you will have to use an elastic band for your ponytail, but nobody else has to know that. After you put your hair into a ponytail, grab a section of the pony that is about the width of your pinky and wrap it around the base to cover the elastic. Secure the loop with a bobby pin and tuck in any loose ends to complete the look.
Before you begine making a fishtail braid, but your hair into a ponytail. When you reach the end of the braid, just cut the elastic band off and reveal an extra-tight fishtail plait.
Va Va Voom Volume
An easy way to get instant volume and fullness is by stacking your hair on top of your head after you've curled it and then spraying the underside with hairspray. Leave it up until your curls have cooled, and then let your hair down to reveal a full-hair look.
