Ah summer in the city. I’m loving the long days and the fantastic shooting light, but I’m not loving my frizzed out hairdo! Lucky for me I had some downtime between shoots last week and one of my favorite Hair and Make Up Artists Jenna Drudi was on set to help. We came up with 3 very easy (if I can do it anyone can) ways to have your hair look chic and stylish in under 5 minutes. Seriously, have a look.
Our Simple Start For All 3 Looks
4 Bobby Pins
2 French Hair Pins
Look 1 Fashion Pony
This was worlds beyond the sad pony I’d been wearing for over 10 days! Here’s how we did it.
We created a part and took Separate sections following an ear to ear direction gathering hair while rolling towards the back of head.
Gather the rest of the hair into a pony tail to hide pins.
Lastly, wrap a single strand of hair around the ponytail to hide the bungee band.
Look 2 Side Chignon
Using the same technique as Look 1, gather hair in sections following the nape of the neck and pin.
When hair is gathered in one section and pinned to secure, twist and wrap around to create the shape of a chignon.
Secure with 2 french pins, one on each side.
All that hair off my neck felt so good!
Look 3 Stacked Double Twists
This one was the easiest of them all! It’s also great for shorter hair lengths.
We created this fresh look by using twisted sections and stacking on top of each other. Section 1.
We used a rat tail comb to tuck ends into the sections and hide after securing with bobby pins. It was as easy as 1,2,3!
I’m Committed to Better Hair For The Rest Of The Summer
It was enlightening to say the least to have Jenna show me how easy it is to create a look that says “I’m cute even if it’s 90% humidity”. After this experience I’m committed to making this 5 minute effort on days I would ordinarily pull everything back into a lazy ponytail. Why? Because these styles made me FEEL sexy and they changed my attitude about my day! Do you have summer hair style go-to’s? Will you try some of these? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!
