Glamorous Hair in Under 10 Minutes

Lauren Conrad
What is a person's best accessory? No, it's not a nice handbag or a pair of super duper kick-ass shoes. Although, that's what I used to think. Nowadays I'm thinking that a person's hair is their best accessory. Well, besides a beautiful smile, of course :)

As I'm writing this here in the bookstore, I'm looking at a woman wearing a very cute summer outfit. However, all I can do is stare at her hair. It's just THERE. She would have been much better off pulling it up in a ponytail with a nice headband.

It doesn't take that long to put together a nice hairstyle. It doesn't have to be totally done up. Remember that sleek ponytails are always in style. You can even try this fancy stacked ponytail like Lauren Conrad's.

Although I say that treating yourself to a haircut or new hairstyle once in awhile can get you out of a beauty rut, you don't have to spend loads of money to make your hair look glamorous.

Kate Hudson
I'm in love with Kate Hudson's hair, with its beachy waves and golden color.  Her hairstyle is actually very easy to replicate and only takes about 10 minutes to do.

All you have to do is:

1.  Spray your hair with a texturizing spray.  I use AG's DV8 Texture Spray.
2.  Loosely wrap sections of hair around the barrel of a curling iron.  I recently received Amika's clip-free tourmaline curler to try out, and love the ease of use - not to mention the pretty tattoo design.   It also comes with a black glove so you don't burn those pretty fingers while wrapping your hair around the barrel!

3. Run your fingers through your hair...and Voila!  You hair looks effortlessly glamorous.

Go ahead, try something fun with your hair this summer.  Leave a comment and share a hairstyle that takes less than 10 minutes to do.

  1. I've solved the issue of hairstyling by simply getting a supershort cut (think Halle Berry's short hairdo from pre-2003). It does take an oval or heart shaped face to pull off and it has to be trimmed once a month to keep it looking good. However, now I just towel it partly dry and add some putty for texture - it takes 20 seconds to style.

    I grow my hair out every few years but keep going back to this cut just because it's so easy (especially for a curly head like me). Next time I grow it out, I'll be sure to try your suggestion for styling it like Kate Hudson. I love that wavy, loose look.
