While the ponytail look was for those women with long hair, this style idea works for women with medium
length hair that is curly. The first thing to do is use a little product to define and "liven up" your curls. Apply the product and scrunch the hair with your fingers.
Next, take a wide-toothed comb and comb the curls back toward the crown area. Comb the hair upward from the
nape and sides as well. As you get a section combed to the crown, use a hair clip to hold it in place. Once the hair is pulled up, use an
expandable circular comb to gather all the hair at the crown and secure it then remove the hair clips. You can then use a pick or your
wide-toothed comb to fluff the curls and conceal the comb.
You may also want to free some of the curls at the temples and sides to accentuate the look. This will
give the illusion of an elaborate up-style of curls. You can adorn the hair with jeweled hairpins or a strand of pearls (a choker-length
necklace is usually a near-perfect length for this purpose and can be pinned securely to the comb under the curls) to give a "crowned" effect.
Finish up by misting the hair lightly with a shine enhancer to give the style depth and shimmer.
These are just a few of the simple and fast fixes for hair, and they will allow you to meet the challenge of last-minute preparation with a
little more confidence and ease. None of these ideas are entirely new to most women, I'm sure, but perhaps applying these techniques in
slightly different ways will give you ideas for creating your own quick-fixes.
