If you’re like most women, your hair is at least partly responsible for your look. It’s a key part of who you are and how you dress. But sometimes, it can be hard to find the right hairstyle that works for you.
That’s where heat styling comes in. Heat styling is a way to style your hair without using heat. You need some hair products and a hairdryer. And since it’s so simple, it can be done in any room of your house! Here are ideas for a no-heat hairstyle that will work for you.
No Heat Curls
This is the best option for a no-heat hairstyle if you want to get big curls but don’t have time or patience for them. Start by applying a small amount of gel on all wet strands of hair. Use an angled curling brush to twist and curl each strand as if heated with a flat iron. This helps make sure you get nice soft curly locks. Let them sit until completely dry before combing through. Keep your eyes open when drying because that’s when damage can happen. This hairstyle looks great even after washing.
Another no-heat alternative is Bantu knots. These are big loops that come from one another to create a big ball. To do this: Start by twisting two sections of hair on both sides of the head into tight little balls.
Take the ends between the first set of twists and pull them up tightly. Continue doing this for your entire head. Keep the twists far apart from each other. When finished, use a wide-tooth comb to smooth down loose sections and remove excess product. This hairstyle works well for all hair types, as long as there is enough volume to hold the knots together in place.
Low Braided Bun
For a low bun, cut hair pieces from the back and side of your head. Divide these strands into several smaller bundles. Then, use bobby pins to secure them in a circle around the top of your head. Gather them together at the back and pin gently. To finish, give your whole head a light spray of hairspray to help maintain its shape. This hairstyle looks especially cute when paired with colorful accessories.
Braid Half Updo
This half updo makes a great choice as a quick and easy hairstyle. Find a section of hair in the front of your head and divide it into three equal parts. The middle piece should fall over your forehead while the side pieces go behind your ears. Secure the two side pieces with bobby pins. Finish with a few spritzes of hairspray, and you’re ready to look gorgeous!
Twist outs are more commonly known as cornrows. They are typically braids that come straight out from the crown of your head instead of looped. There are many ways to achieve this type of hairstyle. One of the easiest styles is to take small sections of hair from the sides and back of your head and roll them upward to meet in the center. You can also add a few extra touches here and there for more interest. Finish by spraying a fine mist of hairspray on your hair to help it retain its shape. This is a good choice for everyday wear and can easily be combined with different outfits.
Half Braided PonyTail
A ponytail has been around since ancient times. It was originally used as protection against enemies or wild animals. Nowadays, people tie their ponytails using hair ties. However, there are still people who prefer braiding their ponytails. This technique involves taking small sections of hair from above the eyebrows and across the cheeks. Using these sections, create a tiny circle with hair secured with bobby pins. Use medium-sized clips to secure each section, so they don’t slip off. Finish by adding some hairspray and leave the rest alone to grow out naturally. Don’t be afraid to experiment with this style, as you can change how it appears by changing the length of your hair and the placement of the bobby pins.
What you’re thinking? A headband? Yes, the answer is surprisingly simple. Start by taking an elastic headband and wrapping it once around the crown of your head. Pull hair through the holes in the elastic to get the desired effect. Next, wrap the band three times around your head where ever you feel necessary. Pull each end of the elastic towards your face before securing it with bobby pins. Add a couple of drops of hairspray to preserve the shape.
These braided and rolled up buns have become all the rage within the last year. It’s not hard to see why. First off, they are very creative and make you look effortlessly chic. Secondly, they only require one thing; lots of time. So if you’ve got a little bit of free time on your hands, then maybe you should consider giving this a try. To start: Divide your hair into 4 even sections. Take a large portion of hair from the back of your head and separate it into two equal sections. Take one section and hold it horizontally while rolling it toward your left ear. Repeat this process twice more until all four sections have been rolled. Once that’s done, tuck the ends behind your ears. Simply pull out any stray strands. Spray some hairspray onto the finished product and let the rest do its thing.
Hair can either add beauty or subtract beauty, but overall, it is a part of our body that makes us comfortable and confident. And when you choose the right hairstyle, no one will be able to stop you. As long as you keep it classy, everyone will love you!
