Update and modernize your hairdo!
Change is good, but it's even better when it takes only moments to make one.If you like your hairdo but it's looking a little dated, there's no reason to agonize over making major change. Today, there are tons of quick tricks for taking your style from staid to stellar.
Try out new accessories
Headbands are hot and the newest clips and barrettes show off your fashion sense. Today, nighttime clips look smart even during the day.
Twist hair up
If your hair is chin-length or loner, comb it straight up, twist a few times, then coil up and pin high on your head. Use bobby pins to clip up shorter strays at the nape or iron curl them for a softening effect. If you're good at working your mane, you can leave some strands out for a freedom feeling.
Use a different styling product
Try pomade for shine, a pliable styler for extra texture or colored mousse for a quick color change.
Change your part and alter your look
Part hair on the opposite side from which it naturally falls and you'll get extra fullness instantaneously. Add a zigzag part that's strong pull pieces across with your pinkies to create a tousled, no part-at-all look. You can even brush hair straight back from the hairline for no part at all. Another way to make hair look more modern is with hair color.
Temporary colors are great for reflecting moods of the moment - just remember that the lighter your hair and the brighter the artificial shade, the less likely it will be truly temporary. Now that you're comfortable making small changes, experiment with other methods that take a tad longer. Start with thermal tools . For straight hair, try quick tricks with hot rollers or curling irons. Add a little root lift, then progress to creating a whole new look by spiral-setting locks.
Lots of new ideas give your hair edgy appeal. A quick touch-up with a curling iron and your ends have bends. Follow through with products that create separation by running them through the ends or the longer lengths.
When fullness is your aim, you don't even need locks that are long enough to roller set. Simply twist large sections as you dry hair or set damp locks on pin curls and finger-fluff once hair is dry. To play up bangs, curve them under and wear the rest of your hair straight. Or, add texture and lift to locks, then detail the ends of bangs for a fringy effect.
Of you have naturally curly hair, there are may be easy ways to straighten it, depending on how tight the curl. For a texture transformation, you can quickly flat-iron locks in large sections - there's no need to make your mane super-straight. Or, comb gel through damp hair at night, wrap it tightly around your head and pin in place. In the morning, just remove the pins and brush through. Try these tricks! Not only you'll get new hairstyles, you'll show off your individuality - something that will never go out of style!
