Hot Hair Looks: Tips from Bubbles!

15 Jan

I don’t know about you… but I’m in a hair rut. The most exciting thing I ever do is move my part from center to side and back again.

If I’m feeling tired, you’ll know — because my hair will be in a pony tail.

Hot summer day — a top knot.  And, if a few misbehaving strands hit my eyes, I trap them in a mini clip.

I hit Bubbles the other day to get some simple how-to hair tips. Here’s the before pic. I asked for an idea for a new look that would take just five minutes or less.

I think my jaw dropped when stylist, Nitza Parker, said she could give me curls in just five minutes.

She used these clips to separate my hair into sections.

After sectioning my hair, Nitza wrapped a few strands at a time around a curling wand for a few seconds to create instant loose curls.

Wrap hair around the wand for instant curls

Using a wand over a standard curling iron helps avoid those “prom” style tight curls.  Here’s the final look. If you want to soften the curls further you can comb it out. Depending on your hair type and texture, it will hold the curls differently.

The final look

Nitza advises using a heat protectant product on your hair first before using a wand or curling iron.  A hair wand works well on a range of hair lengths — from a short bob to longer tresses.

Nitza agreed to show off another easy do.  This time, on her hair. She already has a head of gorgeous curls!

Here’s how to do a fast braided bun. First step is to do a single braid.

Then, twist the braid into a bun and fasten with bobby pins as you spiral the braid.

When you get to the tail, twist it, then tuck it into the bun and fasten with a final pin.
