BEAUTY BAR: Twist and Shout!

With a great summer comes great responsibility. Everyone knows that this season usually involves impromptu plans and you have to be able to change quickly. There really will be no time to stop and do your hair for every single event that you’ll be attending. Wearing your hair in twists is a comfortable look that saves time and energy.

We have all gotten that call, “Hey, what are you doing? Meet us at, (insert location) in 10 minutes?” After you hang up, you spend most of your time trying to figure out what to do with your hair. You don’t want to straighten it because you know that as soon as you step out the door, it will frizz up. You know that curling it takes too long and there is no way that you’re going to wear a pony tail for the fifth time this week. There is an easy solution— wearing your hair in twists.

This Fashionista is wearing her twists down for a simple and ready-to-go look. There are a number of styles that you can choose from, you can throw your twists in a bun, a ponytail or even braid them. The cool part is that you can play around with color without putting damaging dyes on your actual hair. You can add hair extensions or you can do it with your natural hair. This trend is very popular, especially in the Midwest. It has also been seen on the ultimate Fashionista, Solange Knowles.

WHAT’S ON THE BEAUTY BAR? It is simple to get this Fashionista’s hair style. For added length, you can purchase Marley Hair in pretty much any color. The amount of hair extensions is based on your actual hair thickness and length. Grab a small tube of hair gel from your local beauty supply store, as well as curling cream and clips to hold the hair down as you work on each section. You can even do it yourself with help from YouTube. You can add beads and clips to personalize your look. On average, it takes about four hours to complete, but once it’s done, that’s all. You can get a variety of looks without ever really changing your hair.
