How many times have you woken up in the morning wanting to do something different with your hair, but ended up with your everyday, flat ponytail? With straight hair, it can be difficult for other hair styles to stay in place throughout the day so we might just give up. Here are four quick, easy, and lasting hair styles that you can rock this winter.
Option 1: Half Up and Voluminous
This hair style is great for adding some extra body to your hair, which can do wonders for making your hair look thicker and fuller. First, start by taking the hair at the crown of your head and pulling it straight up in the air. Next, use a teasing comb, or any small comb, to back comb this section. This will add thickness to this section of hair. After you have done this, lay this section flat without losing grip. Finally, pull this section to the back of your head, push it up slightly, and pin it in place with a bobby pin. An additional step is using hair spray to make sure this style stays in place all day.
Option 2: Small Side Braids
Use a comb to part your hair down the middle of your head. Start by taking a small section of hair by your face on one side and braiding it. Next, pull this small braid back and fasten it against the side of your head with a bobby pin. For extra hold, you can crisscross two bobby pins together to keep the braid in place. After you have done this, repeat this process on the other side of your part. Now you have a simple and stylish way to keep your hair out of your face this winter!
Option 3: Voluminous and Messy Bun
To achieve the messy and voluminous bun look, start by taking a small section of hair at the top of your head and back comb it using a teasing comb, and then securing the hair right at the crown of your head with a bobby pin, pushing it slightly forward beforehand. This will add an interesting texture to your messy bun, and it will make your hair look more abundant. Now, you can pull the rest of your hair into a messy bun. You may do this by starting as if you are making a ponytail, but you do not end up pulling all of your hair through. If you want a more wispy and casual style, then pull some small pieces of hair by your face out of the bun.
Option 4: Side Braid
You may start this hairstyle by parting your hair wherever you would like. Next, gather all of your hair to one side of your head. Begin braiding your hair as you normally would. If you like, you can either leave your fringe loose to frame your face, or twist it back and fasten it with a bobby pin against the side of your head. Next, tug the sides of your braid to make it look thicker and more noticeable.
