Since New Year's Eve is this week (I can't believe it either), I'm sharing this effortless 5 minute hairstyle with you.
- hair elastic
- bobby pins
- texturizing spray or dry shampoo
- preferably curled/waved hair
I prefer hair that has already been curled or is wavy--this just gives more texture to work with. I had used a flat iron on mine for waves a couple of days prior.
Spray roots with a texturizing spray, like this one from Oribe. Dry shampoo is another option, but I love the volume with the Oribe. You can also tease your roots but that takes more time, and this spray cuts out that step.
Part your hair on the side. Leave a section out, as pictured, and draw the rest into a loose ponytail at the nape of the neck. Secure with an elastic. You can leave it like this if you'd like.
Take half of hair and twist it into a bun. Pin. Then take small pieces of hair, fold them in half (or more if you have longer hair) and pin them into the bun. This gives it a piecey and messy look. Pictured is the hairstyle in progress.
You can secure loose ends or let them fall as they may. I like this hairstyle the longer it is more "lived in." I check my work in a mirror to see if I like the shape as I'm pinning. Spray with hairspray if desired to set.
