Many of us love to style our hair. The problem is, we want to get the look we desire without spending a lot of our time creating it.
You see, spending hours at a stretch while we style our hair is a luxury that most of us cannot afford due to work commitments, kids, or even other demands of life. But then again, this doesn’t mean you should compromise your creative personality or your love for playing dress-up.
Here are six different ways in which you can create healthy, amazing, and stylish hair whenever you want!
Embrace the art of putting on hair extensions for just about any hairstyle
Hair extensions are a great way to change your look instantly. Whether you are aiming for a beachy summer wave, pixie cut, or waist-length, shiny hair—with the help of hair extensions, it is all possible.
Not only do hair extensions allow women to add a couple of inches and volume to their hair, but it can also save you a lot of time once you master the art of putting them on. Having said this, you do need to be careful while you are picking hair extensions to make sure you get the best results.
If you are somebody who frequently uses heat styling tools, it would be more preferable for you to opt for extensions made from human hair instead of synthetic hair. The latter is not created to withstand high heat. But then again, synthetic hair extensions are much easier to care for which would make this more preferable for people who have packed schedules.
In addition to that, there are many different types of hair extensions available in the market. You will have to take into account your budget, the number of hours that you can devote to caring for your hair extensions, and so on to find the perfect length and style.
Use a hairdryer for a more voluminous hairstyle
After you have shampooed and conditioned your hair, remove any excess water from your hair with the help of a dry towel. Apply a serum or heat protectant to your hair strands to protect them from heat while adding a bit of shine.
Take a hair dryer to lightly dry your hair. Start using the hairdryer on a low heat setting, and then move to higher heat once it’s slightly damp.
Don’t use the appliance too close to your scalp. You should always use the hairdryer an inch above your roots and then move towards the ends. This will help you add volume from the very base of your hair.
Braid your hair for a manageable yet stylish hairstyle
Whether you opt for a French braid, fishtail braid, or the traditional one, you can instantly make your entire look super stylish with this option. Braiding your hair is also the perfect solution when you don’t have the time to shampoo your hair.
Spritz some water to your head to make it slightly damp. You can also apply a lightweight texturizing cream or wax for a more clean and sleek look. Start braiding your hair to get the type of braid you want. You can also refer to a YouTube tutorial to understand the process better.
Get your haircut by a professional for an amazing hairstyle
Getting a good haircut is a sure-shot way to an amazing and stylish hairstyle. For this purpose, you need to make sure that you are placing your precious locks in the hands of a trained and experienced hairstyle expert.
Firstly, the professional will be able to suggest a good haircut according to your face shape. Secondly, certain techniques can make your hair appear healthier by chopping off split ends and thinning out your hair; all of which a professional will understand how to do.
The other reason why you should opt for haircuts is to promote healthy and voluminous growth. While it is true that getting frequent trimmings does not make your hair grow longer, it does, however, make your hair feel and look great. Getting the right cut is very important which is why you should be careful when choosing a hairstylist. You can also do your own research to help you get a better understanding of the hairstyle that would be most suitable for you.
Use the right hairbrush for a voluminous hairstyle
Not many people are aware of how important your hairbrush can be to help you create that perfect hairstyle easily without causing any damage to your hair strands.
If after using your hairbrush, your hair gets tangled or breaks off, you should immediately throw the brush in the bin. Many people view hairbrushes as unnecessary items which is why they don’t want to invest their money into one. They can cause a lot of damage, sometimes even irreparable, to your hair.
Cheaper hairbrushes usually have metal braces that can get hair strands tangled while also damaging your hair. Instead, buy a hairbrush that is made out of bamboo or has broad bristles to protect your hair and style it quickly.
Buy a hair straightener for sleek straight hair
Hair straighteners can, of course, be used for straightening your hair while also doubling as a curler. Always make sure to apply a heat protectant to your hair before you use the product to minimize heat damage.
Section your hair before you use the hair straightener to help manage it better. We would personally recommend you section your hair into multiple sections.
Start straightening your hair from the ends and then move towards the base of your head. If you want to make beachy waves using the heat tool, you can do that too. After you have straightened a section, take the strand into your hand again and gently twist it over the hair straightener. Use the straightener as you normally would, just at a slower pace. This will give you those luxurious beachy waves you so desire.
You can always look up videos on YouTube that will show you the correct techniques to create any look you want.
