Best Quick & Easy
Hair Styles for
Women on the Go
The stylists and other hair care professionals at Pavlova Salons in St. James and Wading River, NY regularly hear our clients complain that their busy lifestyles often leave little time for complex hair styling every day. From waking up, exercising and getting off to work, to bringing the kids to school, soccer, dance class, etc., you find you just don’t have 20 minutes to style your hair every day. What to do?
Many women resort to cutting their hair short to keep it simple and manageable. While this is certainly an option, and works for many women, you love the way your hair looks long and want to keep your luxurious tresses. When you have the time to give it the attention it deserves, your hair looks great long and flowing.
Well, fret no more! There are many ways to keep your hair long and look beautiful without spending hours a day on it. Read on for four easy hair style tips from the hair stylists at Pavlova Salon. These styles will have you looking completely pulled together in just minutes.
1. Sexy Tousled Hair 1, 2, 3
Do you love that “tousled hair” that implies you just got out of bed, shook your hair and it looks hot and sexy, yet pulled together. Every wonder how your favorite celebrities and models pull that off while you look like you just walked through a hurricane when you get out of bed in the morning?
They didn’t really just get out of bed with that hair. They (or their stylist) took a little time to get it to look that way. But it’s not hard. In just a few simple steps, you can have the same look.
Step 1: Rub some mousse in your hair, divide it into sections and roll each in a large sponge roller and go ahead and get dressed, eat breakfast, make the kids lunch, whatever your morning routine calls for.
Step 2: Remove the rollers and with a wide tooth comb, lightly tease each section.
Step 3: Spray some hairspray to set the style for the day.
That’s it. You’re done.
2. Dress up with a Headband, 1, 2, Done!
Headbands aren’t just for the gym. They work in the office, around town, even for a party for a casual chic look. The key is the right headband. Pick one that matches the style you’re going for: plain, flowered, patterned, jeweled. Whatever works for your look.
Step 1: Run shine serum though your hair and curl the ends and bangs with a curling iron.
Step 2: Pull your hair back and secure it with the headband.
3. Barrettes aren’t just for kids anymore
You can have a sophisticated look with the use of a simple, elegant barrette.
Step 1 (that’s it): Take the hair on each side of your head and loosely pull it and twisted it, making sure the front part of your hair stays loose for a softer, less extreme style. Secure both sides with an the barrette that matches your personal style and look where the twisted pieces of hair meet in the back. For a more finished look, spritz with a shine-spray.
4. Buns aren’t just for Librarians
To avoid the librarian look (no offense librarians), keep the bun loose.
Step 1. Just pull your hair back into a ponytail and leave a few wisps around your face.
Step 2. Divide your ponytail into sections and curl each section with a curling iron.
Step 3. Lightly tease curls with a wide tooth comb and spray with hairspray.
If you want to add some elegance and sophistication, add some rhinestone pins to each side of the ponytail.
