Want to change up your look without spending a ton of extra time in the mirror? Read on to learn five easy changes you can make to transform your ‘do!
1. Give yourself a brush less blowout.
That’s right – just don’t use a brush. Use your fingers instead. This will give you a gorgeous, natural look in less time! Spritz your hair with a heat protectant (try PRAVANA's Nevo Invisible Control Heat-Activated Thermal Protectant), then add tension to your locks with your fingers as you blow dry. For more body, use a volume spray like Pureology's Pure Volume Instant Levitation Mist.
2. Loop your ponytail instead of tying it low.
Thinking about pulling your hair back? Give yourself a blowout, then take a hair serum we like Pureology's Smooth Perfection Smoothing Serum and run it through your hair from mid-shaft to ends. This will give you a sleek look. Next, pull your hair back as if you were to make a regular low pony, but don’t slip it all the way through, creating a loop. Finally, separate some of your hair and secure it around your elastic, hiding the band. Now you have a gorgeous style in minutes that looks professionally done!
3. Skip the ponytail -- do a braided bun.
On days when you just can’t, ponytails are your best friend. But why not try a hairstyle that’s just as easy and a bit different? Add a thickener to your strands like PRAVANA’s Nevo Full Volume, make a high pony, then braid it and secure it with a small elastic. Finally, loosen it up, wrap it, and pin it into place. Simple!
4. Switch up your part.
Parting your hair in different ways causes your face to be framed differently, adding subtle changes to your style. Middle parts are generally good for more serious hairstyles, whereas side parts will give you a more fun or brave look. Of course, how you part your hair should depend on your face shape (for example, a side-swept part can widen a round face, whereas a center part will help add definition to your bone structure). Experiment to find what works!
5. Mend your split ends.
You won’t believe the difference that eliminating split ends makes in the overall appearance of your ‘do. Don’t have time for a cut? We recommend Pureology’s Strength Cure Split End Salve Treatment. This powerful formula helps to strengthen and smooth split ends, as well as prevent further damage. When used with Pureology’s Strength Cure Shampoo and Pureology’s Strength Cure Conditioner, hair strength is improved by 97% after just one application!
