Show Your Stripes!
Need to be somewhere fast and want to your hair to look like Blake Lively, but don’t have time? Too bad. You’re out of luck- never going to happen. BUT if you want to have decent hair and are in a time crunch, then do this. Dry your hair, then loosely pull it up into a high ponytail…as in the 80s called and want their high ponytail back…that high. My hair creases easily, so use one of those elastic fabric hair ties and only wrap it around a couple of times. Use your curling iron, curl the ponytail and let your hair cool for a few minutes. So, finish your makeup or go get dressed while your hair is cooling- if you’re in a hurry, then you should be multi-tasking anyways. After a few minutes, pull your hair tie out and your hair will magically look like you spent time on it, when really you dried it and spent 2 minutes curling it. Seriously, I think it will take you 2 minutes.
This isn’t rocket science, but sometimes it’s the little tips that are the best. And if you don’t have any of these elastic hair ties, then you are missing out. They are great on your hair, and they look cuter on your wrist than a plain ole ponytail holder. Invest in a lot of these- you won’t be disappointed.
