All of our days and lives are completely different. There are no two people who live the same schedule and therefore there is no possible way that we can depend on the numerous beauty bloggers “hairstyle hacks.” These are people who spend their entire day creating these videos.
We don't have time for that!
We’re real people who - let’s be real - would rather be doing yoga or playing with our kids over spending hours in the bathroom getting ready. That’s why we're in this business. To make lives E A S I E R.
We’re going to show you how to get seven different looks out of basic, manageable everyday curls. These are all styles that will take you from the office, or your everyday cycle, into a night of actual living and not worrying about what you look like.
Before we get started we want to preach about the potential of changing your part. We know it’s a tough sell, but try it! Getting out of your comfort zone can spark some and who knows? You might find yourself falling in love with a new look.
1. Going to a Concert
Let’s be honest, going to a concert on a weeknight is already risky business, so we don’t want to spend hours of our precious day getting ready for it, especially if we’re just going to hit the hay after.
To transition your everyday curls into concert ready, add some smaller curls that give more dimension to the top of your hair. Don’t overdo it, adding just a few of these smaller sectioned curls will totally change how your hair looks.
If you haven’t already, this is the perfect opportunity to introduce your hair to BigTYME! This will save you from spending too much time trying to tease or add volume to your hair. It’s literal magic in a bottle. Finish the style off with some hairspray and you’re good to go!
2. Family Photos
The holidays are just weeks away and people are crunching in those family photos to put on their holiday cards. With tight schedules between work, school, and extracurriculars, photo sessions might need to be on “school nights.” It’s easy to bring your everyday curls to photo ready!
Add more curls focusing on smaller sections. After your full head is curled to your potential, grab your TYME Paddle Brush and soften them up. After all, you want to look like an elevated version of your everyday self in these pictures.
3. Attending a Sports Game
As we get older and our kid's schedules start to become our schedules, a lot of our evenings are spent at games or practice. We know getting ready for a game seems silly, but it’s still a social outing. You’ll be talking to parents and coaches and want to put a serious face forward.
We suggest brushing through those everyday curls and switching up your part! Changing to a middle part can turn you from sweet to fierce in seconds!
4. Baby Shower/Wedding Shower/Engagement Party
You could easily go to any of these events with your everyday curls, but this hairstyle is SO EASY you’ll want to do it.
With a middle part, grab the two front framing sections of your hair and give them a twist to the crown of your head. Make sure the front section is full and has body. Using two bobby pins per side, secure them at the crown of your head and vuoala! You have an adorable hairstyle!
5. Football Sunday
Whether it’s hitting your favorite neighborhood bar or just sitting on the couch with your partner, it’s nice to FEEL cute! For this style, you can use your every day - or for most of us leftover from the day before - curls or even your natural hair. Part your hair deep to one side and then pull all of your hair to a low pony on the opposite side.
About two or three inches down add another small pony and repeat all the way through the end of your pony. Fluffing the sections in between ponytails makes a fun flirty look that’s easy to create. Leaving strands of your face framing pieces out can soften up this look!
6. Professional or Fundraising Event
Fancy events don’t just take place on the weekend. Rushing to get ready for a formal event can be tricky when most office hours don’t end until 5 p.m. and who wants to take PTO when it’s not for a vacation. If you know this event is coming up, it might be wise to give your hair a fuller curl in the morning, but soft everyday curls work too! We’re going to style a sleek one sided do.
Part your hair deep to one side, tucking the rest of the hair on the smaller side behind your ear. Pull that hair in a slight twist towards the nape of your neck on the opposite side and secure with a clear ponytail so it’s hidden under the ticker side of your hair.
We know that it might seem silly to tell you how to do your hair to go exercise...but there is a way to do it to make your curls last! We’re going to teach you the foolproof way of creating a messy bun.
Grab all your hair and smooth it to the crown of your head. Using your Invisibobble (if you don’t have one already - GET ONE) pull your hair halfway through and wrap that half up and through to create the perfect messy bun that won’t destroy your curls.
Go forth ladies and effortlessly crush every day and every style that comes with it!
