1. Wrap a head scarf or a bandana

Using accessories is a simple way to trick people into thinking that you had time to get ready. Keeping a couple of head scarves or bandanas with different designs to match your everyday outfit will be very handy for those days when you just don’t have the time for hairstyling. Aside from giving you that extra oomph, it injects personality into your look!

3. Pinned back and sideswept

This hairstyle is especially great with wavy or curly hair. It’s a simple trick to make your hair look manageable and neat. When doing the soft twist at the top part, make sure it’s not too tight. Give it a little air and clip is securely at the back. That way, your hair would look like it has volume.

Editor’s tip: To keep your hair where you want it, use a wax with definitive hold like TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax.
