10 Easy Ways to Do Hairstyle Quick and Lovely

1. The Fishtail Look-alike Braid

Love the fishtail braid but don’t have the time, patience, or skill to pull out one? Here is a HACK! This brilliant braid resembles a three hair strand braid but it isn’t and It takes a shorter time to ‘braid’. Now, you can add this to your list of french braids and dutch braids! I cannot wait to wear this in my hair all day and every other day! This tutorial works best with medium hair length.

How To Make This Braid:

  1. Bring your hair together to one side still holding on to it, separate it just above your hands and put two of your fingers (the fore and the thumb) through the hole.
  2. Grab the bottom of your hair and pull through the hole. Repeating this step again and again with the rest of your hair until you get to the very bottom of your hair, make sure you don’t make big holes in the middle of your braid.
  3.  Tie with a clear hair elastic at the bottom once you’re done braiding and Voila! You are done!

2. How About We Accessorize?!

Skip the braided bun or updo hairstyle or high pony for now. Did you ever know that accessorizing your hair is also a form of making a quick hairstyle? For the longest time, I had been viewing hair accessories differently. All along I thought they were a little bit too much on my head, therefore, opting for a hairstyle that doesn’t really need clips or any form of accessories. Just learning that adding some hair accessories can also be an easy and quick way to style my hair!

Accentuating your styles with simple clips, like these Geo-Inspired hair clips, is an easy way to put your hair together in mere seconds. Just hold your hair, secure it stylishly with these pins and you are good to go!

3. Here Are Quick Hairstyles Solution To Those That Desire Thicker Hair!

Do you wish you had thicker hair? More highlights for summer maybe? Well, there’s an easy solution for someone who has a hair texture like yours.

Guide To Hair-Do:

  1. Take a small section of your hair part and divide it into two.
  2. Twist-up the two parted sections adding new sections of hair to the lower area as well as the top area as you continue twisting.
  3. Continue this process until you reach the back of your head and secure it with a clip.
  4. Do the same on the other side
  5. When the two twists are almost meeting (make sure they are close enough), gather all the hair and put it in a ponytail
  6. Put a clear elastic at the end to secure them (this is optional).

5. Let’s Crown You Up With This Quick Hairstyle!
