The perfect everyday look
You might be wondering what the perfect everyday look might be. A simple style should be something that you don't have to worry about. Today’s busy woman wants to look good all the time with a minimum amount of work involved. If you are running out of the house taking the children to school and find you haven't had time to comb your hair and you want to look presentable when you run into your friends.
Take into consideration the texture of your hair before getting your new style. If you have thick, naturally curly hair, the possibilities are endless. You can have just about any style available in the book, provided you have the face and figure to wear them.
If you tend to have a hefty, blocky build, keeping your hair longer will only accentuate the look of this heftiness. Don't despair, you don't have to cut all your hair off. Think of something that barely touches the shoulders and in layers. That might be a good look for you and easy to work with as well.
What if you have thick, straight hair and are looking for an everyday style? How about a bob with about the same length as stated above? Ask yourself if you still want your long hair? If so, can you dash out of the house and still look good without combing it? My guess is that, you can if it is twirled up and clasped with a comb, and that is fine for jogging.
When it comes to having a different hairstyle, you have to ask yourself how individualistic you really want to be. Take a mental survey of all the friends you know and how they are wearing their hair. What makes them unique? Do their styles seem to fit them and their lifestyles? How often do they change their hairstyles? Or, are you seeing many who are still wearing their hair the same way as they did when they were in high school? Are you any different?
You can have a unique everyday look that can transform with just one flick of the comb into a sporty, let's-go-play-tennis look. We have already discussed how you can add a hairpiece to your short hair for evening wear. If you have a short bob and are going golfing or tennis, why not put a colorful sun hat on? Or, put a summery scarf around your head. In an instant you look sporty.

If you would like to go from sporty to an evening out, but do not have a hairpiece to add, fluff up your whimsical look with your hands while your head is upside down for added volume using your mini can of hairspray that was stashed in your purse for this emergency. Add some fanciful earrings to get you in the mood for the fun evening ahead.
Be prepared!
What if you just so happen to run into Mr. Wonderful himself while you're tired and doing last-minute grocery shopping before going home, and he invites you over to meet his parents, but you only have twenty minutes to go home and put away the groceries you bought? Never fear, wisdom is here. Here is when you time yourself. Give yourself five minutes in the shower and no longer.
If your hair is cut short, you don't have a problem, because by the time you towel dry and put on some new makeup, you know your hair will be dry. If your hair is long, you don't have the time to wash, rinse, and dry, so there will have to be other alternatives. Use some dry shampoo and brush all your hair back, and clasp it with combs on each side.
While you are thinking about what you are going to do with the rest of it, put on your makeup, and listen to your favorite songs so you won't get stressed. Use your large curling iron and curl your hair under and back brush lightly for some volume. Place a ribbon under your hair in the back and tie it on the top. Put some stud earrings on and don’t wear anything with a low neckline, because you want to impress his parents. Oh! There goes the bell and you are more than ready! Ready as can be!
So what should a woman carry in her purse for these unexpected situations? As mentioned above, a mini can of your favorite hairspray is a good idea. A small battery-powered curling iron. A good small vent brush. Take into account, that everything you take must be small for your small purse. It isn't attractive to carry a shopping bag with you wherever you go filled with all of your emergency tools on your shoulders, not to mention what it is doing to your back while you are doing this. You want to give the impression of not having anything, darling. But, you do want to give the impression of having some intelligence while you are carrying your small, stylish purse.
The whole idea is to be prepared for anything at any time. With a little bit of planning, you can be ready for whatever happens, no matter what it is, and I believe you are just the person who can do it!
