 Do you sometimes wake up wondering how to style your hair? Although I’m no longer in school (Class of ‘15!), I remember those days. I wanted to share a quick fun, wild and free hairstyle you can easily recreate. I usually like to rock loose waves or a straight lob when I’m wearing my short hair, but it’s always fun to switch it up a bit.

  Step 1  I try to not always wash my hair, but when I do I always use a serum and run that through my damp hair with my fingertips. My hair tends to frizz up so doing this step helps control most flyaways. However, I still have a few that tend to have a mind of their own and so I used the  ½” Pixie Straightener  after blow drying my hair. The mini flat iron helps get close to the root of the hair to smooth out any kinks and calm any stubborn strands.

  Step 2  My hair is neither straight or curly, its sort of has random waves. But, I can easily straighten or curl with the right products! I wanted to create a tighter wave for a fun effortless look and used the  Curlipops ¾” Styling Iron . I began by grabbing ½” strands of hair and wrapping them around the barrel from the root to the tips. I began at the front of my head and worked my way back. With every strand I grabbed, I wrapped the hair in the opposite direction of the previous strand to create a look that was more voluminous and wild.

  Step 3  Once I had a full head of curly hair I sprayed it with my favorite flexible hold hairspray and let it sit for a few minutes. I then loosely ran my fingers through my hair to loosen up the curls. Not all styling irons are always suitable for short hair styles and with bigger barrels the curls tend to fall out. What I like about this styling iron is that I was able to achieve a really great wave for a short hair style. Additionally, like Elissa mentioned in her  Quick N’ Easy Festival Style  blog post, several of the Bed Head styling tools like this one are easy to use and just have one heat setting (400° F).
