3 Easy Hair How-Tos

#GwynnieBee Beauty Report

Minimal effort, maximum effect. These three long hair ‘dos are quick and easy! All you’ll need is a brush, some bobby pins, and a hair tie. And a sock. Preferably freshly laundered. (Socks: so hot right now!) April showers bring May flowers — and a month of bad hair days. Enough with the frizz frustration! Get your hair up and out of your face with out looking like you just gave up on your manic mane altogether. GB staffer Doni shows us how it’s done.

Style 1: Top Knot with a Twist

Put your hair up in a ponytail at the crown of your head, roll up a sock lengthwise and wrap it around the base of the ponytail. Using your fingers, tease the soft, fine baby hairs out around your temples to frame your face and to soften the overall look.

Tilt your chin downwards and distribute the hair evenly around the sock.

Slip a hair tie over the top of the sock, cinching the hair in and creating a bun. Ta-da! You’re done! Now go out there and get on with your bad self.

Kidding. We’re almost there. One more step to go.

Twist the remaining hair around the base of the bun and secure with a couple of strategically placed bobby pins.

Style 2: Festival Flowerchild

Start out with a centered part.

Begin the twist with a pinch of hair from the front of the part. Moving down and towards the back of the head, twist the hair upwards and away from your face. Temporarily fasten with a bobby pin at the back of the head while you do the same thing to the other side.

Remove the bobby pin and gather both pieces together. Fasten with a hair tie.

How easy was that! Daisy chain, optional.

Style 3: Braid-y Lady

Start with a deep side part. Gather the front section of hair and divide into the sections. Braid once.

Adding to each piece as you go, continue the French braid along your hairline until you reach the nape of the neck.

Finish the braid off bringing it around so that you end up on the opposite side of the head. Tie it off with a hair tie.

    Hey, next time could we see these hairstyles on actual GB-sized ladies? It’s rather disingenuous otherwise!

    Wow! I am going to give both of these a try. Thanks.
