THE 5 SECOND HAIRDO


Sometimes when I don't have the need to or feel like fixing my hair I create the fastest hairdo in the world by grabbing half of it- the hair that is- and pushing it upwards with a comb into something of a bouffant kind of style, a miniature beehive. Super Kawaii Mama has a tutorial on how to achieve the look without backcombing, by tucking some hair under itself in order to achieve some height; you can also avoid back combing by putting a hair rat/sponge roll in, but that's all to hi-fi for this. I go casual : grab, twist and push. Take half of your hair and twist it about halfway around itself and press a comb in tightly from underneath, upwards. You can actually get the hair pretty big!

It's a good 'do if my hair is still damp from washing it, or a bit fly and dull. It works just like that and truly does not take longer than 5 seconds, but if you want some more flair curl the ends of your hair. Or add a ribbon. Then you have to add a couple of minutes but you still get away pretty easy.

That is a great idea! Sometimes my hair gets a little flat, and that is the perfect way to give it some life. Thanks!

Tam : my hair tends to go dry after years f bleaching but I use lots and lots of salon products to keep it in shape; hair masks and leave in balm. My hairdresser does wonder how my hair still is so thick.

Sue : I have striaght hair too, I just curl the ends! Sometimes by heat (rollers or iron) but I try to pincurl it as much as possible since the heat damages it quite much.
