Your Cart is empty
The sun is out so you want to make the most of it. We have been lucky with the weather so it doesn’t make sense to stay indoors doing your makeup and hair and waste it. I love looking good as much as the next girl but that doesn’t always mean going with the style that is the most complicated or requires heated tools. You don’t need me to tell you heat isn’t great for your hair, you already know so today’s blog is all about heatless styles that are great for when your hair needs a little TLC or you just don’t have a plug socket close by. If you want heatless inspiration to keep reading this step-by-step guide.
The double twist
I love twisted looks, they create so much delicacy and so many interesting features to a style. This style can work with second day or newly washed hair but I find it works best with straight locks. If you have naturally straight locks you don’t have to do anything but if you are like me and have wavy locks, it is time to get the heat protecting serum out and your straighteners. Once you have done that you are going to divide your hair into three parts horizontally. One section from your hairline to the top of your ears, one part behind your ears and one part close to the base of your neck. In the middle of each of these parts put some extension pieces (I would recommend tape in hair extensions) so that they have some thickness. You are going to start styling the top third first so gather it into a ponytail. Create a gap above your hair tie and loop the ponytail through. Pinch the twist a little so that it thickens and the hair tie doesn’t show. You might need to add a few hairpins to keep your twist in position. Gather the other two thirds into one ponytail and repeat the process. Bunch the twist under the top one. You could either leave the ends hanging down like a ponytail like this Pinterest pic or gather them up and turn this into an undo before you add hairspray and finish.
When I think of heatless hairstyles I automatically think of braids. For me, the queen of braids is the fishtail. It may take a little longer than a traditional three-strand braid but it is so worth it. Once you have your hair extensions in and your hair is thoroughly brushed and blended created a centre paring. Take all the hair to the right of that parting and twist it along the hairline and around to the nape of your neck. Repeat on the other side and tie these twists together in a low ponytail. Take a strand and wrap it around the hair tie before you split your ponytail in half. Take a small section from the outside of the right section and place it inside the left now do the same with taking a section from the left side. Repeat this all the way to the end and you are done.
