An Easy Updo

I love trying new hairstyles, but usually all I have time for is a quick blow dry and a run through with a flat iron. It's great when you can find quick, easy, and cute styles that you can do yourself. Thank goodness for YouTube and Pintrest right? I recently discovered an amazing look that is super simple and absolutely beautiful. No bobby pins needed. Just an elastic headband. I definitely had a lot of compliments when I tried this look and the best part? it took less than 3 minutes to do. Winner!   

For the look: 

Take an elastic headband and put it on your head like a hat. Pull down on your strands so you don't have too big of a bump on the top of your head. Once you feel like your band is secure, take thick strands one at a time and roll them upwards loosley, overlapping the band and tuck the ends into the band. Keep rolling and tucking until you have a thick ring around your head like above. 

Do the same with the front strands. Play with them and keep tucking them a bit until they are where you want them to be. 

A couple sprays of hairspray and you are good to go.

Add some sparkle by using cute rhinestone embellished elastic
bands. And for a simple look just go with a plain one that matches your hair color like I did, or a glittery one. Use flowers and tuck them into the band and secure with bobby pins for a cute whimsical look. Great for little girls too. One easy hairstyle yet so many possibilities.
