Ten Minute Hair Care Tips

Apr 21, 2008
If you are pressed for time, a ten minute hairstyle idea can be a life saver. We all want to look our best, but often times, our crazy busy morning schedules often make this task difficult, but thanks to these tips, not impossible.

These style ideas work well for medium length hair, but can be modified to work with other types. First curl your hair with a curling iron, which should take approximately eight to nine minutes, and adds instant glamour to any look. Spritz with a light hold hairspray and you are ready to face the day. If you have a few extra minutes, after your curls have cooled at least part way, give each one a slight finger wave to separate them and finish with a light hold hairspray.

No time for curls? Simply part your hair in the center to make two pigtails and then tie them with the accessory of your choice, which should take about one to minutes and is the perfect antidote to the I just rolled out of bed with no time to do my hair look. Pigtails arent just for grammar school anymore. Many celebs wear them, albeit with sophisticated twists like jeweled clips and accessories.

Prefer the classic girl next door look? Flip your hair forward and then back and pull it back into a ponytail, and if you have time, add some cute accessories and a spritz of leave in pomade or gloss. Ponytails are every womans best friend, since they, like pigtails, can turn messy bed head into sleek sophistication.

National Treasure star Diane Krugers signature style is a low slung sleek side ponytail that is flattering and sophisticated. If you have hair that is long enough, i.e. below your shoulders, than this is a look to try, although keep in mind that it is a hairstyle that will take more than ten minutes.

Once your hair is completely dry, create a side swept part, using a brush or your fingers to smooth your hair along the hairline and sides of your head. Then, pull all of your hair into a traditional side ponytail, positioning the base of the pony either behind the ear or underneath the ear lobe, using an elastic band that is the same color as your hair. Next, use a small to medium barrel curling iron to create one long soft curl that will drape over your shoulder, and take one strand of hair from the ponytail to wrap over the base, using a bobby pin that is the same color as your hair to secure it. Finish with a firm hold styling spray.
