It’s that time of year – where we have an exam tomorrow, assignment due tonight, and a ten-paged paper due at the end of the week. And sometimes, we need some chic cheats for our hairdo, especially if you’re running late to Prestige 2013. So, we talked to the professionals at Studio H London for some tips of the trade.
Student hairstyles are all about looking great with little effort. From long hair to short hair, here are a few hairstyles that can done simply with a few bobby pins and a hair tie, leaving you with just enough time to review your notes and run to class!
1) BEACHY WAVES
You can achieve classic beach waves by simply wrapping random strands of hair around the barrel of a curling iron. Do not clamp the curling iron; instead hold the ends of your hair wrapped around the iron for 20-30 seconds. Spray your entire head with a light hairspray, then run your fingers through your hair for a tousled and relaxed look.
2) MESSY BUN
The messy bun is a staple for most university girls because it’s fast and effortless. In fact, it looks quite cute for as long as you don’t look like you just rolled out of bed. Gather all of your hair and wrap a hair tie around it a few times, depending on the thickness of your hair. Now you can shape the bun by taking the ends and looping them into the hair tie, securing them in place with bobby pins. Run your fingers through some strands for a messier look, and finish off with hairspray to keep it in place.
3) LOOSE SIDE BRAID
Tease random strand of hair in the crown to add more volume. Gather all your hair to one side so that it covers most of the ear. You can leave some hair falling out in the front if it’s not long enough for a more natural look. Start plaiting your braid – but do it loosely. Finish off your braid, and tie it at the ends. Gently pull on the sides of the braid for a messy and fuller look.
