Have long hair but don’t want to take the large amount of time it can mean to fashion
an updo hairstyle of any sort? Just because your attending an elegant occasion does not
mean it automatically requires an elegant updo hairstyle of sorts!
You can easily opt for long, sexy, sleek and straight. By using a flat iron you can achieve
this look very easily, and it is versatile enough for many other events and occasions as
well. If a flat iron is not your thing using something as simple as a flat brush and blow
dryer on damp hair can work as well. Part your hair in different sections, zig zags
or one of my personal favorites First part your hair down the middle, after using a flat
Iron or flat brush/blow dryer combo, take about 2-3 inches of hair from the front and
neatly tuck them behind the ears, add shine spray, and a good but flexible holding spray.
You can also fasten these strands if say your bangs are short or its hard to keep them
behind your ears with a coated bobby pin close in color to your hair color.
Another option is to Use hot rollers/curling iron or a round brush and blow dryer to
create beautiful curls basically from ear length down, and then fashioning the hair so it
sits swept onto one preferred side. This hairstyle is essentially easy once you get past the
curling and can usually last all evening without problems if you use good quality products.
Lastly top with a great pair of earrings to show off!
