Back-to-school hair blow out!

I don’t have much time in the morning before school to do my hair, but I want it to look cute. I was wondering what would be the best hair cut for me. I was thinking of getting bangs but I’m not sure. Help!


We feel ya, sistah. There’s no time to dilly-dally with your tresses when ya gotta be out the door in seconds flat. You need a cut that’s totally low-maintenance... But that doesn’t mean it has to be boring!

Bangs or Bang-less?

Bangs can be a lot of work, so there’s some types you should stay away from. Avoid blunt, straight across, or any kind of short frays. Instead, go for a longer side bang. That way you can pin them back on those dreaded bad hair days or tuck them behind your ear when they’re getting in your face. You can play around with longer bangs and even switch them from side to side. Plus they’re super-easy to take care of!

Layer Love

Whether you’re a curly, wavy, or straight-haired chica, layers do wonders for your locks. Curls and waves will have more definition and bounce, while straight tresses will have more movement and body. And there are many different styles of layers. If you’re going for a sleek vibe, you can go with a couple longer layers. Or if you want an edgier look, go for choppy short ones. To frame your face, choose angling in the front. The best part about layers is that they do the work for you and are totally easy to deal with

Sassy Stylin’

You don’t have to be a professional to know how to style a layered cut. First things first, use shampoo, conditioner, and other products that bring the best out of your natural texture. If you have curly or wavy hair, try curl-enhancing products, and if you have straight hair, use shine promoting and other products designed specifically for straight strands. If you have issues with frizz, sometimes washing your hair at night and letting it air dry can eliminate this problem. In the morning, you shouldn’t have much to do. Leave it down, pull it half up, or add a cute accessory and go!
