Different Easy Hairstyles that Actually Look Good

It’s good to have different hairstyle options– whether it be for those frustrating bad hair days, for those days when you just don’t have enough time to do your full post-wash process, or simply because you want to try something different. Previously, I have made reference to the how-to’s for the side-braid hairstyle as well as a blog on how to get Snooki’s poof. Following are a few other easy hairstyle options that I think look great.

Put a bump in your ‘do.
Separate the crown section of your hair and tease it.
After teasing, spritz it with some hairspray (like the Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Harder Hairspray).
Then, pull both side sections back around the teased section and pin it into place.

Loose curls
Blow-dry your hair and make sure to untangle any knots.
Using a 1-inch curling iron (like the FHI HEAT Curling Iron), curl 2-inch sections of hair, one at a time, holding the barrel vertically 3 inches from the root.
Spritz some hairspray (TIGI Rockaholic Run Times Flexible Hairspray) on your hair after finishing with the curling iron.
After allowing it to set for a few minutes, run your fingers through for a more natural look.
Use a smoothing cream (like the TIGI Bed Head After-Party Smoothing Cream) to soften the ends.

Slightly tighter curls
After washing your hair, apply some leave-in conditioner (like the TIGI Curls Rock Leave-In Moisturizer) to damp hair.
Make braids all over your head, then go to sleep.
Undo the braids in the morning and separate them a bit with your fingers.

How to clean a ceramic flat iron?

Whether you use your hair straightening iron occasionally or regularly, it will eventually develop a film of residue, resulting from the hair products you use as well as natural oils and dirt in your hair. It is important to clean the ceramic plates in your hair straightener in order for it to work more efficiently and because the build-up can damage your hair by snagging and pulling.

Fortunately, learning how to clean ceramic plates on a straightener is quite simple. First, make sure the flat iron is unplugged and cool. Then, either spray the ceramic plates with a cleaner designed specifically for thermal hairstyling tools (available at beauty supply stores and most drugstores), or you can saturate a piece of cotton with rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover and let it soak for a minute or so. Rub the plates vigorously with either cotton or a clean cloth. Do not use strong solvents or scrub with anything abrasive, as you may damage the plates.

Clean any small crevices with a cotton swab and/or an orange stick covered with cotton or soft cloth, which is how to clean the hair off the hair straightener that may have gotten stuck as well as other dirt particles. Finally, wipe the entire flat iron with a clean, damp towel to remove any chemicals used during cleaning.

Repeat this process after each use of your flat iron or at the very least when you start seeing a residue building up.
