Fast Styling For All Hair Types

September 24th, 2011

Making your hair look good is always a challenge because of time. Mornings are always time-crammed whether you’re going to work, school, or out shopping for the day. Now time doesn’t have to be a problem when you’re running late but don’t want to look messy. These tips will stick in your mind and will also make you look fabulous!

If you have naturally straight hair, it’s easy to accomplish a polished look fast. Your basic tools include frizz serum, a round brush or wide-toothed comb, and a little hairspray. The first thing you’ll want to do is give your locks a fresh run-through with your brush just to look a little more smooth. The benefit of having straight hair is that you don’t necessarily need any heat to complete your look. After brushing your hair, take your brush or comb and begin teasing sections of hair at the crown, making sure to spray each section with hairspray to give it a little volume. The last step is to top it all off with your frizz serum. This will work wonders so you don’t have to worry about your hair poofing up in public.

Wavy hair can be a bit trickier to straighten, but if you have the right tools you’ll get the job done in no time at all. You’ll need a Chi hair straightener, thermal spray, and frizz serum. What you’ll want to start out with is moistening your hair with the thermal spray to prevent any heat damage. Typically, you should split your hair into three layers when straightening so make sure you spray each layer and give each enough time to dry before you begin styling. Now it’s time to use that Chi! For wavy hair, set the heat on a medium setting- you’ll need enough heat to get it straight but not too much that it will fry your hair. Starting with your first layer, take one-inch sections and run your hair straightener through your hair to free it of frizz and wave. Sometimes it takes more than one swipe through each strand, depending on how wavy your hair is. After you have done each layer, you can seal the frizz with your serum to hold your straight look in place.

The essential tools to straighten thick and curly hair get a little more complex. Since the strands are bulkier, it will take a little bit longer to get that sleek look. You will need curl-taming shampoo and conditioner, a blow drier, thermal spray and a Chi straightener. Begin by washing your hair with a shampoo and conditioner that have an emphasis on taming curly hair. These types of shampoo are great for saving time later when you style and will also help build up strength in your hair. The next step is to spray plenty of thermal spray on your damp hair and begin blow drying. To prevent frizz, most blow dryers feature a “cold” setting so that you can dry with cold air. After all of the hair is dry, set your Chi on one of the higher settings since your hair is so curly. Spray it once again with the thermal spray while the straightener is heating up and split it into three layers. Straighten one-inch sections in each layer until your hair is straight all around.

The next time you are running late but still need to look at the top of your game, try these tips for a great look. Your hair will look stunning and you won’t even need to spend much time on it!
