  • In today’s busy world, hairstyles must be simple and uncomplicated. Besides, simple designs are an expression of our times. Luckily, there are plenty of beautiful simple hairstyles around. The most important feature is the ease of styling. Undone natural curls can be styled in seconds using nothing but your hands and a few styling products. If you prefer to have your hair out of the way, you can twirl or braid your hair or create one of the many simple updos. Allow a few strands of hair to escape from otherwise organised updos, chignons or ponytails; even braids should lack just a bit of their straight perfection. You can always upgrade the casual look using hair accessories if you feel that your hairstyle needs an element of personal expression.

  • Five Steps to a Natural-Looking Hairstyle

    The most important attribute of natural-looking hairstyles is their simplicity, and the fact that little stops the natural way your hair frames your face. This means styling tools like straighteners, curling tongs and blow dryers remain cold and unused in their places. Your hands are the best styling tools for natural looking hairstyles. Styling products should also be used sparingly but you may like to add a little shimmer to your hair.

    How to Create Natural Looking Hairstyles:

    1. Shampoo your hair before combing it with a wide-toothed comb or brushing it.

    2. Allow your hair to air-dry.

    3. Distribute a little hair wax in the palms of your hands and then run your hands through your hair.

    4. Gather your hair in a casual ponytail or chignon if you prefer to tie your hair up out of the way.

    5. Use extra-gloss hairspray for shimmering hair.

    Tip: If you prefer the matte look, use a styling paste instead of hair wax and extra-gloss hairspray.

  • Make-up in soft earthy tones of beige, brown or nude complements natural-looking hairstyles.

    We hope the photos of natural-looking hairstyles in our gallery inspire your creativity. You may come up with your own relaxed, cool and very modern undone hairstyle version.
