I really like hair styles for school that are quick, effective, and help me control any hair that would want to fall into my face. So here are three hairdos that you can do for school, or just any time.
-The Man Bun- this is a great hair style when you just have too much hair to deal with, your hair looks nasty, you want your hair out of your face, and you want it down at the same time. It is a newer/modern hairstyle that a lot of people are doing now, this is how I do it.
Step 1: Section hair, I take the end of my eyebrows and go straight back to make a part. Then I smooth out everything so it looks nice.
Step 2: Twist hair into a bun. I like to do this by twisting my hair into a coil with one hand and then controlling it with the other, I like to make sure its flat and big on my head and not sticking straight out in a tiny coil, if that makes sense. Then I just secure it. I really like these spin pins from Goody, they are one of my holy grails. Only one is needed for this hairstyle, but of course bobby pins and even a hair tie could be used instead for this.
Step 3: Finally make sure every thing is looking how you like and everything is secure. You can add hairspray if you want, but it is not necessary. Now you are ready to rock your man bun as a confident woman!
-The Classic Braided 1/2 Updo- this is similar to the man bun in what it does, but it is daintier, more fairy like (Romeo and Juliet anyone… no?) and less “modern”. Let’s just say it is classic.
Step 1: Section your hair the same way as the “Man Bun”.
Step 2: Take the upper hair section at the same spot as we made the “Man Bun” and section it into three, then start braiding.
Step 3: Tie it off, massage the braid if you want to make it more relaxed, and if you want to get fancy add a cute accessory to the hair tie area. You can use anything you want like a bow, flowers (you could even put flowers through the braid), or any hair hardware, what I used was a metal bow on a hair tie from HnM. Add hairspray if you wish and you are ready for the world.
– The “Poof Braid Hawk Pony”- crazy name right? Well, I just made it up because I have no idea what to call this Hairstyle. It is a braid that adds detail in a mohawk area and helps add volume to the front with a little poof all in one wearable ponytail.
Step 1: Take the front section of your hair (I use my eyebrow arches and go straight back for this one) and get it under control.
Step 2: Braid the section normal and then add something to the bottom to hold the braid together while we finish up, you can even take a second and use the braid as a temporary mustache, which is what I’m thinking about in the picture below (lol).
Step3: Smooth everything into the ponytail style of your choice (high, low, in the middle, whatever you like) and tie it off. I like to Pull out some little whispies around my face to frame everything and make it softer. The next thing I do is poof the front section of the braid to make it into an even poof of my desired height. Something I forgot to do in the pictures, but is a good idea is to take a little section of hair from underneath and wrap it around the hair tie to hide it, or you can add a fun accent to the hair tie. This is a fun hairstyle, so have fun with it, oh and add some hairspray if u wish, it can be helpful with flyaways.
Have fun with these hairstyles and if you are going to school, I wish you a good school year, and if not, I wish you a good rest of 2015
