It’s often the case that we have a signature style that we love, and that always seems to look good, but when it comes to making a change, something fancy, fun, or hip, perhaps for a night on the town, we struggle to create. Yet if you use the right products and tools, or can keep a few good tips and tricks in you back pocket, you can positively change your style, quick as a flash. So let’s round off Monday with style notes on ways you can make your hair trendy and new for those day to night change-ups…
Step: One key to quick changes is to have the right products and tools to hand. Stick a hot iron (or a wand if you you want to make waves or curls) in your bag so you can always get a swift fix. Take protective thickening lotion and set & style spray with you too, and almost any look can be achieved.
Step: Use products and an iron for quick-set options. Mist both products through hair section by section by lifting hair off the root and spritzing in. Then use your iron to create extra smoothness and shine, or some wave and curl movements –– whatever you want to do.
Step: Adjusting the position of your parting is another option for an instant change. Make partings more-or-less central and create textural waves down the sides with products and the iron for a seventies-inspired, beachy look. Alternatively, go for very wide, deep parting that instantly creates an asymmetrical, face-framing, short-to-long look.
Step: Don’t forget about ponytails. For a striking change, a high –– on or above the occipital bone –– ponytail is modern, flirty, fun, with lots of polished elegance. It’s a great way to add drama to any look.
Step: Another idea is to stick a fancy accessory in your bag. Accessorize with a high sparkle (fake!) diamond beret and you’ll be the jewel in the crown of any party.
