How To: Summer Hair in 3 Minutes



It's summer and you want to do something to your hair. And fast! Well, I've got ya covered. Here's a hairstyle that's quick, gives you a little body & texture, and can be done in 3 minutes. Yes, 3 minutes. Even in my thick hair! The result is hair with a slight wave that's so pretty. Read on:


T O O L S:
  • 1 1/2 in or 2 in curling wand (a curling iron of this size will work, but I've found the barrels aren't as long as a wand)
  • Heat protectant
  • Products--optional (look at the bottom of this post for those!)

M E T H O D:
  • Brush dry hair, add heat protectant, and turn on your curling wand.
  • Divide hair in half.
  • To make this hairstyle fast, take one of the halves and divide it into 3 big sections. This could be 2 to 4 sections depending on thickness of hair. I do 3 on one side, 4 on the other.
  • Curl each big section away from your face. Hold for 10-15 seconds, or until you can feel heat all the way through.
  • Note, unlike past tutorials, you want no space showing as you wrap the hair around the wand, as awkwardly shown below:
  • Rake your fingers through your hair and go! Or you can use one of the options below:
P R O D U C T S:

  1. Waves Spray--Enhance your waves
  2. Dry Oil--For those with dry hair, enhance it with this mist. It gives shine and I LOVE it.
  3. Heat Protectant--NOT AN OPTION; requirement...
  4. Texturizing Paste--for that piecey look
  5. Texturizing Powder--for the bedhead look
  6. Glossing Cream--to smooth it down
  7. Remington Curling Wand--1 1/2 in I believe
  • Don't want to wear your hair down? Use this hairstyle as the basis for a pony or half updo. It gives a little body and texture to hair.

  6. i love my curling wand too!!! i have two - one for tighter curls and one for large waves :) i just need to get the waves spray to keep them in place (they tend to lose their oomph after a few hours because my hair is like teflon)

  13. Looks great! It's been so hot here that I've been lazy and just putting my hair into a headband all the time. This would totally work with one!

  18. Will have to try! Straightening my hair in the summer is such a waste of time...it ends up wavy/curly again in 10 minutes anyways.

  32. I never, ever, ever want to heat up a curling wand in the morning. Even if a hairstyle is five minutes, I feel like it's still five minutes too long. I think it's because I'm too unused to doing hair.

  33. Your hair looks fantastic...wow!

  34. These hair styling tips are my fav posts--possibly because I'm so lost in this department. I might give this one a whirl...I think I still have a wand from my bridesmaid hair.
