 1. Basic curling

This is a basic curling tutorial that will teach you how to get curls that look more like the ones you see in magazines. Be sure to use a heat protector and the right size curling iron – big, lush curls require a curling iron that’s about an inch in diameter.

 

 

2. Curling in sections

If the basic curling tutorial has you a little overwhelmed, try this technique and curl your hair in four different sections. Simply pin two sections up while draping the bottom two over either of your shoulders and curl one portion at a time. Give your hair a little shake to blend all four sections when you finish.

 

 

3. Curl and twist

You may have a problem getting your curls to really stick. Aside from using some good hair products, this method might get you what you need. Curl your hair the way you normally would but twist each curl while it’s still hot and bobby pin them to your head as you go. Let them cool completely and then let them down and give them a good shake and a little hairspray.

 

 

4. Overnight twists

Beach waves are all the rage and there are many ways to get them. This tutorial requires no heat and works best on hair that is slightly damp when you start. Leave it overnight, texturize it a bit in the morning, and you’re good to go.

. Flat-iron waves

A flat-iron can do more than just straighten hair. This tutorial shows you how to get a slightly different style of big waves and suggests a couple of products to use to get maximum staying power.

 

 

6. Quick beach waves

Try these methods to get the the perfect waves and curls for quick and easy hairstyles that last! 11 Ways to Get Waves and Curls ~ Tipsaholic.com #waves #curls #hair

You don’t have to wait all night to get beach waves. Divide your hair into smaller sections, twist, and pin them to your head. Use a blowdryer to dry each section if you want your hair ready to go within 20 minutes, or leave them in overnight to air dry.

 

 

7. Ponytail curls

Try these methods to get the the perfect waves and curls for quick and easy hairstyles that last! 11 Ways to Get Waves and Curls ~ Tipsaholic.com #waves #curls #hair

This is a great way to make curling quicker and easier. Pull your hair up into a loose ponytail and curl the ends. Let the ponytail loose when you’re done and your fresh curls will naturally fall into place. You can also do this with two pigtails if your hair is thicker or you need a little more structure.

 

 

8. Overnight braid waves

Try these methods to get the the perfect waves and curls for quick and easy hairstyles that last! 11 Ways to Get Waves and Curls ~ Tipsaholic.com #waves #curls #hair

 

Overnight braids are the old-fashioned way to get waves and there isn’t anything quite like them. You can try one braid, two braids, or several braids depending on what size waves you prefer. French braids will give you waves all the way to the top of your hair but basic braids get great results too.

 

 

9. Flat-iron curls

Try these methods to get the the perfect waves and curls for quick and easy hairstyles that last! 11 Ways to Get Waves and Curls ~ Tipsaholic.com #waves #curls #hair

As previously mentioned, flat-irons are versatile tools! This tutorial demonstrates how to use one to get nice textured curls on short hair.

 

 

10. Sock bun curls

Try these methods to get the the perfect waves and curls for quick and easy hairstyles that last! 11 Ways to Get Waves and Curls ~ Tipsaholic.com #waves #curls #hair

You’ve probably heard of this no-heat method. There’s a reason it’s so popular! It’s super easy, you can sleep on it for quick hair in the morning, and the only thing you need is an (clean!) old sock.

 

 

11. Quick braid waves

Try these methods to get the the perfect waves and curls for quick and easy hairstyles that last! 11 Ways to Get Waves and Curls ~ Tipsaholic.com #waves #curls #hair

Here’s another way to get waves in a hurry! Separate slightly damp hair into several sections (more if your hair is thick) and braid each one. Blow the braids dry, use a straightener to heat them one at a time, then let them loose.

Coloring your hair is a great way to update your look, and there are so many options available from blonde, to red, to brunette and back again. But have you ever considered dyeing your hair a color that was a little less natural? Get ready to try something new – a rainbow of hair colors are available and trending!

 

  1. Lavender hair

Kelly Osbourne and a few other celebs started the trend on this one. A light purple that some call lavender, others lilac, it goes well with neutral makeup or a smokey eye and/or a bright lip. Miss Osbourne is often seen sporting this color with a kind of punk rock look, but it can be surprisingly sophisticated with the right hairstyle.

 

 

  1. Deeper brights that blend

If you’re up for purple hair but don’t necessarily want to bleach out a darker natural color to try it, this may be an option for you. Deep purples (or blues, or any color you love!) that blend in with a darker natural color are a more subtle way to show your appreciation for creative coloring.

 

 

 

  1. Rose gold

Rose gold is back in the spotlight when it comes to design and fashion and is taking a new form these days – hair! Rose gold hair coloring is a light combination of blondes and reds that gives off a golden pink glow. With its warmer tones, it is a great color for summer and fall and goes well with neutral, natural makeup.

 

 

  1. Gray

Gone are the days when gray was just a reluctant color for the aging. Gray is the newest hair color to become fashionable for both young and old. There are a range of shades from light and silvery to deeper gray with highlights. Find one that works for you and run with it!

 

 

  1. Turquoise

There are many variations on this color, but it’s often referred to as turquoise or “mermaid” blue. You can find it as an all-over color, blended in, or as an ombre , and it is sometimes mixed with other brights or pastels to create fun color combos like “cotton candy.” Bright, bold makeup can be a fun match to this hair.

 

 

  1. Burgundy

Burgundy is a great color for the fall and winter months and can be altered to match warm or cool skin tones. Basically, it’s a combination of deep reds and purples that really gives hair a punch! A darker natural color can blend very well with burgundy if you’re looking for something subtle, but for more va-va-voom you may need to lighten your hair. Blondes may need to go a little darker to avoid a brighter, more purple hue but it’s a look any natural color can achieve.

 

 

  1. Vivid red

You’ve seen it before on celebrities like Rihanna and probably wondered if you could pull it off. Don’t be afraid to try! Warmer skin tones look great in this color but it looks fabulous against a very light skin as well. A nude lip or a bold red that matches the vibrancy of the hair color are a perfect match when it comes to makeup.

Healthy, easy-to-style hair is a must these days if you’re an on-the-go sort of gal – and who isn’t? It feels great to get fancy and spend lots of time getting just the right curl to your hair, but these low maintenance hair tips are what you need for the day-to-day. Start here if you want to get hair that works with you and not against you.

 

Get the right haircut

Easy hair starts with a good cut. Medium to long hair is usually easiest to maintain, especially when it comes to everyday styling. Lots of layers can make hair more high maintenance, so get a cut that flatters your face shape but has a more even overall cut. Skip the bangs to make styling as easy as possible!

 

Use a dry shampoo

You’ve heard of it, but have you tried it? It may sound crazy, but washing your hair daily with water and shampoo really isn’t good for it. Too-frequent washing strips your hair of its natural protective oils and can leave you with dry, brittle, and frizzy hair, and that means high maintenance. Make washings last by using a dry shampoo in between to keep hair healthy without looking greasy.

 

Use a heat protector

Even if you don’t use a curling iron, straightener, or other hot tools very often, use a protective spray every time you do to reduce damage. A good heat protector should also be used before blow-drying.

 

Try some no-heat hairstyles

If you can avoid the heat, do it! Heat is one of the things that will damage your hair the most. There are so many ways to curl and style your hair, and many of them don’t require a curling iron. Check out these no-heat hairstyles and see which ones work best for your hair.

 

Avoid too much dyeing

The less you dye your hair, the healthier and lower maintenance it will be. Stick with your natural color or one close to it so that you can go longer between colorings and use a hair sunscreen when you go outside so your color doesn’t fade. Touch up your roots at home rather than visiting the salon every time your hair grows out, or better yet, get an ombre and don’t worry about roots at all!

 

Arm yourself with some quick, easy hairstyles

Low maintenance hair also means having a few go-to hairstyles so you can look made up even if you only have a few minutes before running out the door. Try a few of these lazy day hairstyles to get you started.

 

Work with your natural hair

Curly? Wavy? Straight? Run with it. Use a little styling serum to get the right curl or enhance your waves for a beachy look. Straight hair looks amazing with the right cut, and you can get away with more layers. Hair grows in one direction around your head, so your hair probably turns out on one side and in on the other – stop fighting it. Part and curl hair in the direction it wants to go. Embrace what you have and find ways to make it work for you.
