Fall Hair Styles Tutorial #2

In a series of weekly hair posts, here comes the second installment of quick and easy hair styles. Like I previously mentioned, Jenni and I visited Robin Barker Salon just a few weeks ago. Here is a very classy up do Robin demonstrated on Jenni. The style definitely maximizes style while minimizing time and effort. What I love about Jenni’s hair do is the fact that you could take this style from the office or school to a night out. Without further ado… let’s get to it!

Step 1: Gather all your hair for a ponytail- either a regular or side ponytail. Here is a sweet little trick Robin taught us for the perfect ponytail. Slip a bobby pin onto either side of a ponytail elastic so that the prongs are facing outward. Instead of tying the elastic as you normally would, keeping the elastic together, wrap it around your ponytail twice and push in the bobby pins. This will keep your ponytail sleek and secure! 
Step 2:  As if you are doing a half up hair style, gather a large strand of hair. and tease your hair, starting from the roots, and gradually make longer teasing motions towards the middle of your hair length. 

Step 3: Grab the rest of your loose hair. Wrap the strand around your three middle fingers to make a loop and bobby pin the loop to secure it. You may need to pin it at the top as well as on the side or bottom. 

This style obviously works best on Jenni’s sleek, pin straight hair. If you’ve got curly, unruly hair you can try straightening it then using a smoothing serum. As you can see though, there are very little steps and this take only a few minutes to create something very cute. 
If you want to take this out for a night look, try creating a smooth bun at the nape of your neck or at the side.

Though this hairstyle looks fancy, even you can try it at home in three easy steps! So what are you waiting for? Go get your bobby pins, elastic bands and combs!

@Beachbabe Yes! I think with thick hair, it would be easier to get volume going up on the top, and as long as you straighten out the top part, it would look great! (I suggest you give it a try, besides, your hair looks quite silky to me!)
