Transforming hair from day to night

We are all guilty of it, grabbing those extra 20 minutes in bed by deciding to opt for a ponytail for the day instead of a blow-out.  For an everyday working woman a bun or top knot can sometimes become a lifesaver on those days when you simply don’t have time, however what do you do when unexpectedly you are off on a night out after work, and don’t have time for a full shampoo and blow-dry before you are due to leave?  Luckily there are options available, and some clever ways to change your hair from day to night without your friends/colleagues being any the wiser.

Here are 5 quick tips to transform day hair, to night.

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo can be a life saver if you have second day hair that needs a bit of a lift.  Spray the dry shampoo onto the roots, and rub in to give the hair a good tease and to remove any sign of residue.  This will add volume to your hair creating a glamorous bed head look.

Chignon

If you have had your hair tied back all day, sometimes a down doo just isn’t an option, therefore a low side or high chignon is a quick and easy style perfect for any evening event.  All you will need is a few bobby pins, and a hair donut (if your hair is short or thin).  This hair style will take no more than 5 to 10 minutes to create and suits most face shapes.

Curls

If your hair is usually worn straight during the day, adding some waves or curls is an easy way to transform your look.  You don’t need hot rollers or a curling iron, simply twist your hair within your hair straightener for beautiful natural waves.  If curls are not for you, simply try flicking your hair out around the front of the face to give it some dimension and movement if it is feeling a little limp.

Accessorize

Headbands and clips are a great way to move your day look into the evening.  You can add a little sparkle and glamour without having to play with your hair too much, and your look can be transformed within seconds.  Try not to overdo it on the accessories however, sometime the smallest of clips can create a great effect.

Braid

A braid can be worn in so many ways, however loose and to the side is one of the easiest styles to pull off for effortless glamour.  Try pulling your hair to the side and securing the braid at the end with a hair tie.  Then gently pull at the pieces of the braid to loosen them for a messy, bed head look.

Now that you have a few ideas on how to work your second day hair, why not give them a go on your next night out.
