Master Ponytails and Updos

We all have those days when time just gets away from us and making our hair presentable is the last thing on our minds. For those days, knowing how to pull your hair into a quick ponytail, top knot or updo is a hair lifesaver!

Even if your hair is in need of a good wash, knowing how to style your hair back into a simple ponytail or updo and spending two minutes washing your bangs or the strands around your face quickly at the bathroom sink is all the styling you’ll need, even on your busiest day.

Work with Your Natural Hair Texture

The secret to a great hairstyle is a ‘do that looks natural and effortless, and there’s no better way to get a natural look than to work with what Mother Nature gave you!

If your hair is curly then learn how to tame your curls and wear them proud. If your hair is straight then make the most of it and show it off with pretty half up half down hairstyles. Hairdos that cater for and enhance your natural hair texture and density will ensure that you don’t waste time fighting your locks every morning and that you end up with a look that naturally suits you.

Find Your Perfect Hairstyle

If you truly want this year to be the year where you finally got your hair under control then you need to find your perfect hairstyle.

The perfect hairstyle for you is one that suits your face shape, hair texture and density, is a length that is manageable and flattering and allows you to style your hair numerous ways for variety. If you haven’t found a hairstyle that does those things, then make this resolution your top priority. Once you’ve got the perfect hairstyle, styling and great looking ‘dos to suit all occasions will just fall into place!

These hair resolutions are just the basics for what you can try to whip your hair into great shape this year. Give them a go with your own ideas and preferences, or team them with some easy hair and beauty habits, and you and your hair will be looking pretty all year long!
