Spectacular - but seriously simple - styling

The days of treading that ever-present, thin line between looking great and spending ages on your hair are over. Follow a few of the rules that have recently emerged for easy styling and you can have spectacular hair in a heartbeat.

Rule #1 - Know the real you 

And, of course, your hair type. It is way easier to style your hair quickly and effectively if you know what it needs and how it behaves. And don’t forget to let your personality own it, because everyone has beautiful hair just waiting to be unleashed. 

Rule #2 - Decisions, decisions

Once you have identified your hair type, it’s essential to choose the correct products. There is simply no point in keeping to a haircare routine that is not actually going to work for you. So, it may be time to rethink your washing habits, invest in a new styling tool and make sure that all of your care products have your hairs’ best interest at heart. 

Rule #3 - Play your part 

Even if you are strapped for time, making sure that your hair is parted properly will make the world of difference. If you have a tricky crown or your hair lacks or has too much body, simply knowing where and how to part your hair will help you to achieve a quick style pick-me-up. That is, if you’re the parting type!

Rule #4 - Keep your brushes clean 

A dirty brush can leave hair looking dull and lifeless. Because hairbrushes are full of product, oil, dirt and dust, a clean hairbrush is often all you need to achieve that quick fix. 

Rule #5 - The blow-dry

A good blowdryer, believe it or not, is an investment that will save you time in the long run. A quality blow-out will prolong your good hair day and help you to sport maximum impact for longer.  

Rule # 6 - Cheats exist - for a reason 

Products like smoothing creams, volumisers and dry shampoos exist to help make your life easier - so use them. They support you to get the most of your look without having to spend tons of time and money at the salon. 

Rule #7 – No wash? No problem

Remember your hair doesn’t have to be squeaky clean to look great. In fact, certain styles work better and look better on hair that isn’t freshly washed. Braided hairstyles, bedhead buns, sleek pony tails and puffed space buns work better on those in-between wash days.So, whatever you do, save time and stay looking sharp with these seven contemporary rules of simple and gorgeous styling that will leave you glad you live in the 21st century.
