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.

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. These quick and easy hair hacks will cause no trouble and will definitely help you look perfect!

ONYC Hair Reviews

[VIDEO] Fro-Out Straightened!


The Fro-Out has received great responses for its ability to provide a naturally straightened and textured look. Since many of you have asked about what it looks like straight, Ashley helped show how far you can take it with an even sleeker look. After straightening it, the results are incredible! It ended up looking and moving like a combination of the relaxed perm textures. It’s clear that this is a texture that provides endless options. Be on the look out for more styles in the future!

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.

blonde+curly+hair23

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!!!

Happy Hair Care From Around The World

Here at ONYC® Hair International, we are devoted to bringing you innovative, cost-effective and helpful tips to boost your hair care, and to dispense that beautiful you!

Today, we are offering up hair care tips from around the world! They are practical and call for easy-to-reach products and items. These natural products will enhance your and your ONYC® tresses, whatever the texture may be. Whether Mongolian Kinky Curly, Curly Addiction 3B, or one of our Mongolian Straight Textures – such as the Mongolian Relax Textures or the Mongolian Straight 1B…. Whatever your choice, check out these unprocessed remedies and let us know how they work for you and your hair needs!!

1) Coconut Milk Shampoo – Thailand 

This local recipe has been passed around Thailand’s social circles.  To create the shampoo, grate and squeeze a coconut to get the milk. Follow by heating the milk on the stove until the oil separates. Then spoon out the oil and let it cool before applying it to the hair just as with shampoo. It will add moisture, softness, and shine to the hair.

2) Scalp Focus – Japan

The belief among Japanese women is that beautifully healthy hair begins at the roots. Therefore according to Japan-born stylist Takamichi Saeki –  hair salon owner in New York, women in Japan will use treatments to exfoliate and deeply cleanse their scalps repeatedly during the week or before every blow-dry and styling. You can acquire effective over-the-shelf exfoliating scalp products or create some at home using sugar and olive oil blended together until it creates a paste. One brand recommended by Saeki are the Nigelle LX products. He comments that they are; “very popular because they are gentle yet effective.”

 

 

3) Eucalyptus Treatment from Australia 

You’ve heard of supermodel Elle Macpherson, right? Definitely check out the Aussie’s long, and glowing hair. Similar to Elle,  many Australian women maintain glistening and polished hair by massaging a slight amount of eucalyptus oil into their scalp as an overnight treatment. This works to supply moisture and shine, and promotes growth.

 

4) Castor Oil Mixture – Egypt

In Cairo, a favorite hair treatment is castor oil mixed with crushed garlic. Also adding a drop of lavender essential oil to the combination is beneficial when applied to dry hair overnight. Follow-up by rinsing it out  in the morning to acquire lush, hydrated hair.

 

5) Whirl Your Hair Straight – Africa

Prior to chemical relaxers and flat-irons, South African women used a process known as whirling to straighten their strands. This was where they would wrap wet hair tightly around the scalp then place a stocking over the head to hold it in place. Following this they used a blow-dryer to remove 80% of the moisture. The next step was to remove the stocking and wrap the hair in the other direction. Now they would  dry the hair completely, take the stocking off, and brush the hair. The result was dead straight hair.

 

6) Make Your Conditioner Sweet – Romania

It is strongly believed by stylist in Romania that honey boosts highlight-hair color. It is recommended to add 1 tbsp of honey to your favorite conditioner and Voila!—it will make highlights Glow!
