Ready to do something else with your hair? Try a new look this summer – some of which don’t require you to even cut your hair.
You can create a shorter look for yourself by simply tucking it in a certain way. To create the cut-free bob, you’ll need a pack of bobby pins. Start by pinnig up the top section of your hair – ear to ear to get it out of the way. Then, grab one or two inch sections of your hair and fold it up toward your scalp. Pin each section securely until you have all of the longer hair pinned up. Release the top section of your hair and help arrange it to hide the pinned sections underneath. Pin up long ends by rolling them under as well leaving only your shorter layers loose. Spray the creation with hairspray for a fun and flirty new look.
If you have bangs already cut, you’re in business for the next look. If you don’t have bangs, you might still be able to create a similar look using the shorter front sections of your hair near your face. Apply volumizing mousse to wet hair and then allow it to airdry to help create wave. When your hair is dry, gently tease the hair at the top of your head to create even more volume. Gather the front sections of your hair and pull them gently back in line with your ears. The front of your hair should still be nicely full on your head.
Fasten the hair you’ve pulled back with a barrette and then use a curling iron to give the rest of the hair left down extra dimension. Finally, use the curling iron to make your bangs high and smooth by running the iron quickly through them from root to tip as you sweep them over to the side.
A completely fun look to try is big – very big. Start by blow drying your hair haphazardly to help it curl and wave. Then, right before it is completely dry, set the hair on hot rollers for twenty minutes. When your hair is finished drying, remove the curlers carefully and finger through the curls to help break them up and make them larger. Use a large brush to smooth out a three inch section of hair directly over your forehead. Pin the hair back tightly with bobby pins or a barrette and then take sections of your wild curls and spray them for volume and hold all the wild scrunching them for a bit of a wilder look.
For an earthly, romantic look, straighten your hair and then separate two sections on either side of your head about two inches back. Pull the rest of your hair into a low bun and pin it in place at the nape of your neck. Braid the two sections up and over your head to create a headband of sorts. Pin the ends of the braids under the bun and use pomade to smooth things down a bit. Straggling pieces and artfully arranged bangs complete the look.
