7 Cute Hairstyles for Busy Women

Women don’t have to be all made up to be beautiful. Check out these gorgeous hair styling tips that you can easily do when you’re pressed for time. These hairstyles are commonly worn by women who hate spending time on their hair. If you don’t really know a lot about makeup, or if you don’t have enough time to primp and prettify, you may benefit from these amazing hair styling tips that takes less time to do but brings a big change to your look.

1. Twist your hair back.

Twist your hair back.

Part your hair in one portion and take an inch section of hair above the part. Split that section in two and twist it while adding hair from your hairline. It’s like a loose braid on a section of your hair. Use bobby pins or hair elastic to secure the twisted section at its end.

2. Split, knot, twist then pin.

Split, knot, twist then pin.

This updo hairstyle takes a mere 20-second to do. Split your hair in half like what you’d do for pig tails, knot the two sections together, twist and pin.

3. Get Barbie’s voluminous ponytail by sticking two bobby pins under your pony to lift it and give it a pop.

Get Barbie’s voluminous ponytail.

A basic high ponytail might make you look like you just left the gym so primp it a bit with volume for a more polished look. You can tease it a bit or twist the lower section and voila! There’s goes and effortless high pony with sexy volume.

4. To achieve a fuller twisty bun, wear your hair like pigtails.

To achieve a fuller twisty bun, wear your hair like pigtails.

Twist each section then knot it together for an easy yet gorgeous twisty bun.

5. Go for a tiered high ponytail.

Go for a tiered high ponytail.

This banded pony hairstyle creates a braided illusion but this hair styling technique is much easier to do. Keep your hair away from your pretty face by having a high ponytail. Move about 2 inches down and tease that hair section a bit then tie it using another elastic. Repeat the same until you reach the ends of your hair.

6. The fishtail braid takes skill and time to do.

Settle for something like it but will take you less than a minute to create. Divide your hair into two sections and pull both on one side. Twist each section then braid it like you’re supposed to but using only two, instead of three, sections.

7. Try the half-bun, half-down hairstyle.

Try the half-bun, half-down hair style.

 

Give your everyday bun a twist and wear it on half a section of your hair. Pull a three-inch section of your hair straight back then loop it to a tight knot. Simply leave the other half of your hair down in its wavy, just-got-out-of-bed state.

This hair styling guide lets you choose from seven easy-to-do quick fixes for your hair. There are actually plenty of hair styling techniques that will require less time and effort to do. These are just seven of the super fast hairstyles that you can wear when you’re running late or when you simply don’t feel like doing the necessary work to prettify.

What is your advice for anyone interested in purchasing this hair?

My advice would be to def do it Onyc hair has soooo much texture, a wide variety of colors that still maintain that natural texture and can be used and reused for over a year. Def do your research when it comes to curl patterns this get a little tricky. It’s almost like doing a math problem 3b 3bc with a little bit of this and a little bit of that hahaha. Fortunately for me, I had the Onyc team to help me. There’s tons of info on the website that’s available to everyone and the customer service number is there for a reason use it and make sure you are getting a texture that best matches your hair.

My fav part about being a host/tv personality is that you have the ability to meet so many cool people along the way. The networking opportunities are indefinite and this has helped me sooo much to grow as a person, a talent, and a professional! It’s exciting!!

blonde+curly+hair24

The entertainment business is not a walk in the park. I know this sounds cliche but you will hear 99 no’s before you hear that yes so you need to have tough skin. But when you do hear that yes, it’s so fulfilling. Suddenly you feel like all the hard work you put into this craft is finally coming to light and people notice this. Once someone takes notice to you (all you need is one right person) everything can change. For me, I’m blessed to have good management that took notice in me and good people that I will soon be working with soo things are coming into place and I’m excited for my new projects for 2015!!!

New beauty trend? Heists of costly hair extensions

West Houston store one of four burglarized for item in recent days

Don Hilliard’s west Houston store has nine surveillance cameras, a motion detector, bars on his windows and other security measures.

You’d think he was protecting precious jewels or luxury cars. His business on Westheimer actually just sells beauty products, though one of the items has beem deemed a high-value target for thieves: hair extensions.

Despite the security efforts, thieves on Thursday stole what Hilliard estimates to be $10,000 worth of hair extensions.

Hilliard’s store is one of four businesses selling extensions in Houston burglarized in a little more than a week. In this recent upswing of the thefts, stores are losing thousands of dollars in merchandise. Hair extensions can cost up to $180 per bag. The hair with the hefty tag, professionals say, is an extension made from real human hair with the cuticles intact. The locks last longer and look more natural.

One recent hair heist netted $40,000 of merchandise – and that store has been robbed six times. And it’s not just a simple shoplifter stuffing a purse with the product: The weave thieves sometimes move in packs, burglarizing businesses in groups of upwards of eight.

“It looks like it’s starting to escalate again, so we’re going to take another good look at it,” Houston police Sgt. Frank Quinn said about the recent trend.

Houston dealt with surges of hair extension thefts in 2012. Quinn said thieves often sell the stolen goods out of the trunks of cars. Others hawk them online.

High-end theft

The afternoon following his robbery Hilliard walked to the back of his Brashae’s Beauty Supply store, past rows of hair products and extensions, and pulled away a piece of plywood to reveal a small hole in the drywall. Early that morning, two men broke into his business by busting the lock of the empty building next door and cutting a hole in the adjoining wall. Entering through the opening, the men then crawled on the floor and filled trash bags with hair extensions.

Hilliard said Thursday was the fourth time his Westheimer store had been hit.

“If they want it, they’re gonna get it,” he said.

But now he’s had enough. He is going to stop selling high-quality extensions at that location because they are the real draw for hair thieves.

“That’s all they took was high-end,” he said, gesturing to the empty hooks where the extensions used to hang.

Quinn said thieves probably latch onto hair theft because they know they can get in and out quickly.

“It’s easy to handle, and it’s easy to get away with,” he said.

Don Hilliard said he is going to stop selling high-quality extensions at the Westheimer location of his Brashae's Beauty Supply store after it was hit by burglars Thursday for the fourth time since its opening. "Is the world becoming so materialistic that you have to break in just to steal a pack of hair?" he asked.

Don Hilliard said he is going to stop selling high-quality extensions at the Westheimer location of his Brashae’s Beauty Supply store after it was hit by burglars Thursday for the fourth time since its opening. “Is the world becoming so materialistic that you have to break in just to steal a pack of hair?” he asked.

At 2 a.m. July 30, hair extensions and cash were stolen from Beauty Sensation at Beechnut in southwest Houston. Security camera footage showed as many as eight suspects in two white Ford F-250s descending on the store.

‘Already gone’

One of the trucks backed into the storefront at a high speed in reverse, crashing through the door, according to authorities.

The thieves threw items into the bed of the truck, including more than 200 hair extensions, said John Cannon, spokesman for the Houston Police Department.

The action was over quickly, said Ronecia Pierre, manager of the Beechnut location, but the suspects still did a lot of damage.

“They weren’t in there maybe but two minutes, and by the time we got there they were already gone,” said Deneen Jacobs, general manager for both locations of the beauty shop.

Hours of cleanup

Pierre said there was hair, glass and chemicals all over the floor, requiring hours of cleanup. She arrived at the store a couple of hours after everyone started cleaning, but it still was “a disaster.”

Beauty Sensation had been robbed one time before, about four years ago, Jacobs said. After threatening people with a gun, the thieves just took a few purses from customers and left, Jacobs said.

This time, Jacobs estimated that $40,000 to $50,000 in cash and merchandise was taken.

Then suspects stole about $40,000 worth of merchandise on Saturday from K Y Fashion using a similar technique, said owner Woong Kang.

A car described as a white Dodge Dakota truck backed into the front of the shop at West Mount Houston in north Houston, Cannon said. Kang said damages to his store will cost him almost $20,000. The shop has been robbed six times, Kang said.

And the day before the burglary at Brashae’s, Sense Beauty Supply at Veterans Memorial in north Houston was hit.

Multiple suspects broke in through the rear of the store and stole hair extensions and wigs, Cannon said. The size of a large, gaping hole in the brick wall at the store indicates a vehicle was used to gain entry.

Hair supply store owners said they are tired of the stealing. Hilliard, owner of Brashae’s, said criminals should check the classifieds and get a job instead of selling his stuff.

“Is the world becoming so materialistic that you have to break in just to steal a pack of hair?” Hilliard said.
