Sometimes, a beauty routine is the last thing you want to deal with. But a lack of time doesn’t have to mean an absence of style. Sawmya Raghunandan, the technical trainer at a hair care product manufacturing company, shares a few easiest, most chic and fastest hairstyles you can try before heading out to work.
This game-changing hairstyle works when your bangs aren’t cooperating and you absolutely have no time to heat style your hair. French braid or two-strand twist your hairs from one temple to the other side, then secure the end with a hairpin or small elastic near the ear on the other side. Use a hairspray to hold the style in place if you’re prone to slippage or fly-aways and step out in style.
The power of a sleek look particularly on a hot day cannot be denied. Wet your hair and then brush it up to the crown or back to the nape of the neck. Secure with gentle elastic and smooth down the edges.
This runway-ready style looks so incredibly chic and it’s surprisingly easy to recreate. Secure a low ponytail with one end of a silk scarf (you can use a hair elastic underneath for extra security, especially if your hair is slippery). Split the ponytail into two sections on either side of the remaining tail of the scarf and start braiding the scarf with the two sections of hair until you reach the bottom. When about an inch or two of scarf remains, tie it around the hair that’s left. You can leave the braid hanging loose or twist the scarf braid around itself to secure it in a low bun.
Criss-cross half-up hair
Take the top part of your hair and tease, twist and secure with bobby pins. Take the left section over your ear and pull towards the top of your head and pin in place. Take the right part of your hair and pin it below the left part.
Some styles never go out of fashion — twisted bangs is one of them. They are your saviours on your bad hair days. Twist a small section of bangs backward and pin them on the other side of your head. Take another section from directly under the first one, then twist and pin it over the first twist.
