Party Hair: 5 Hot Looks You Can Do In 10 Minutes (or Less!)

Your tardy to the party days are over!

Ladies, we’ve all sent our friends that “On my way” text when we know well and good we’re still in the mirror fighting to create the perfect party hair look. It’s time to put this issue to bed with hot new styles that can be done in 10 minutes or less!

There are far too many party hairstyles out there to choose from that don’t require a full at-home styling session or even an hour-long appointment at the salon. Whether you have 10 minutes to spare or only two minutes to head out the door, here are some extremely hot and easy party hair ideas you’ve got to try:

Half-Up Fold

If you know how to fold a shirt, you could probably do this hairstyle with your eyes closed. To recreate this look. Section off the top of your hair and clip the back away. Smooth the middle section of your hair back and secure with a bobby pin. Fold the right section of your hair over the middle (covering the middle bobby pin) and pin, then do the same for the left. Unclip your back section, spray Bed Head by Tigi Headrush Shine Hairspray for a glossy finish and you’re done!

Accent Braid

Textured Ponytail

Perfect for those nights when your friends invite you to a function at the very last minute and your hair is in shambles. Sleek and tame any flyaways or frizz with Suave Max Hold Sculpting Gel (might as well channel the wet hair look while you’re at it), and pull hair back into a low ponytail. Backcomb the ends of your hair to create texture and you’re golden. Party over here!

Statement earrings are a big deal these days. They’re a great way to round out your look and make the most basic hairstyle super stylish. Keep it simple with a long straight ‘do and tuck your hair behind your ears to show off your bold party accessory.
