When it comes to hairstyling, it’s not always necessary to spend hours (and a considerable amount of money) at the beauty salon. With a few simple tools and utilizing the right techniques, you can achieve amazing results all by yourself. Whether it’s a sophisticated up-do or an elegant look, you can easily achieve them, so let’s get started!
Braids, twists and curls
Curly hairstyles are always in season, and you can create a variety of wonderful hairstyles all by yourself. Whether you’re going for a voluminous look or glamorous curls the following style is sure to give you plenty of ideas.
This half-up hairstyle creates an excellent blend of contemporary style and elegance. You need some spray and a curling wand to achieve the effect. Start by sectioning off the tops layers. Lock the remaining hair in place. Spray your curls with the curl amplifier, and use the curling wand to make loose curls. Take the locks you sectioned off and make multiple braids. Spray more curl amplifier and use your fingers to make sure the braids are well-defined. Use a bobby pin to pin the braids to the top of your head. Comb the remaining locks and finish off with hairspray.
The classic ponytail never fails. It’s the ultimate multi-purpose hairstyle and usually the go-to style when in a hurry. You can make this look more interesting by incorporating elegant twists and curls.
All you need is a few bobby pins and hair spray to create this look. Part your hair in the center, from the nape of the neck to the forehead. Make several twists on each side and pin them to the back of the head. Gather the curls up towards the center, wrap a section around the base of the ponytail and secure with bobby pins. Finally, make sure to spray your locks with the hairspray and you’re ready to go!
A beach wave hairstyle is the perfect blend of style and sophistication.
You can use the same technique on your hair as the half-up hairstyle but with a couple of variations. Section the locks and use the curling wand to twirl the tendrils through to define the curls. You can also curl the ends of the locks using the wand to add texture and definition. Once you’re done, use hairspray and marvel at your beach-ready hairstyle!
Chic high bun
An elegant high bun is the perfect finishing touch for a formal occasion.
Tie your hair into a high ponytail and backcomb it at the crown to create volume. Pull a few loose strands and wrap them around the base of the ponytail. Twist the ponytail and wrap it around itself until it is all secured. Finally, use hair-pins to hold it in place for an elegant, chic high bun.
For a cool, contemporary look, the messy-up-do is the perfect solution.
