#BombshellHair: 5 Ten-Minute Hairstyles to Try at Home Today!

Got a date with a cute guy from office? Or a ladies' night to conquer? Well, here's your chance to stir things up by trying something different with your hair for a change. We give you some easy-to-follow tips on nailing these simple hairstyles that suit a variety of hair textures and are occasion-friendly. And the best part? They take only 10 minutes! Let's get started...



1. A Donut Bun


An elegant variation of a simple bun, this hairstyle is great for dinner parties or social functions. This look works well on most textures of hair, and is also great for showing off those cheekbones. You will need to buy a hair doughnut for this look - don’t worry they are easily available and not expensive.

  • Brush thoroughly to detangle your locks.




  • Tie a high ponytail and secure with an elastic band. Then slide the doughnut down to the base of your ponytail.




  • Look down, and spread all your hair around the doughnut so you cover it up and have a small hole left in the centre (just like a doughnut). Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 4.10.39 pm




  • Secure this shape by tying an elastic band around the base of the doughnut you just formed. Wind the rest of the hair (the length left free beyond the elastic) around the doughnut at the base and secure with bobby pins. If your hair tends to look a bit messy or dry, spritz some Schwarzkopf Osis+Sparkler Shine Spray.

Add a cute twist to an ordinary ponytail with this super simple style. It’s great to add just a bit of edge to casual afternoons and evenings.

  • Begin by gathering your hair into a ponytail at the nape of your neck and securing it with a rubber band.




  • Now use your thumb and index finger or the tail of a comb to poke a hole in your hair just above the elastic band of your ponytail.




  • Now take your ponytail and loop it downward through the opening, creating a V.

3. Turn Up the Volume


If flat, limp hair is causing you plenty of distress, then we help you rock bigger and better hair when you want to go for that bombshell effect for a special occasion.

  • Divide your hair into 4 to 6 sections.




  • Take a dry shampoo like L’Oreal Professionnel Tecni Art Fresh Dust Shampoo, and apply it from root to tips.




  • Now flip your hair over and spray some more dry shampoo from roots to tips, combing it with your fingers as you go along.




  • Using a blow dryer on a cool setting, fluff your hair for some extra body and bounce, and you’re done!

4. Braided Side Bun


This look works perfectly on a morning where you’re running late and have no time to wash your hair, as you don’t need to worry about being neat. It’s an easy-peasy updo that is elegantly chic. And the best part - the messier your hair the better.

  • Don’t brush your hair; this look is perfect for a messy just-out-of-the-bed head. If you would like to add even more texture, use a spray like Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray.




  • Take a section of hair above your ear on one side, and begin braiding it backwards across your head till you reach the the other side.




  • Gather up all your hair behind your ear on the other side and wind it around into a super messy bun. Secure it in place with bobby pins.

5. Low Side Ponytail


Put a chic spin to your ponytail the next time you want to shine at a work event or a dressy dinner.

  • Add a smoothing serum before tying your hair into a sleek, low ponytail on one side.




  • Wrap a thin section of hair around your rubber band and pin it at the bottom of your ponytail, to conceal it.



  • Bust out your curling iron and wrap the ends and mid-lengths of your ponytail around it for some cute, polished waves at the bottom.
