We twist curls, weave braids, tighten tourniquets or do “wet” styling - all in five minutes. Three professional hair stylists told us how to get a cool hairstyle fast.
For long hair

Apply a paste to hair for a messy texture. Starting from the forehead, twist 5 bundles at the same distance from each other. Secure them with rubber bands. Wrap the rest of the hair on a pair of tongs (with a curling iron with a diameter of 25 mm) and disassemble it with your hands. The more casual it looks, the better.
Another styling with harnesses. Comb through your hair and spread the texturizing paste from roots to ends. Twist three neat plaits at the temples. Hide the ends under the hair and secure with invisible ones. Pull your hair with an iron and apply a gloss spray on top.
Apply mousse to the roots for volume, comb through the hair, first throwing it forward and then back. Make a low ponytail and spray texturizing lotion all over your hair. Divide the tail into two parts, twist the plaits and connect them in a braid, securing the end with an elastic band.
Collect your hair into three ponytails: on the crown, on the crown and on the back of the head. Spray varnish on each ponytail, and then twist the hair into bundles and secure with elastic bands (you can hide the bottom under the hair). Finish with spray for shine and smoothness.
If your hair is shoulder-length

Apply cream oil to damp hair (as thermal protection). Dry them with a hairdryer, tilting your head down, then use an iron to create chaotic creases throughout the haircut. Spray on top with a dry powdery spray and blow through the styling with a hairdryer - this technique will give hair a matte finish and a naturally sloppy look.
Again, apply heat protection cream to damp hair (lengthwise) and texturizing spray to the roots. And blow dry your hair forward. Take a curling iron, for example, in the form of a cone, and start curling your hair from the roots, pulling it towards your face. When all the curls are ready, secure the styling with varnish.
To keep your hair obedient, wash your hair with shampoo and use leave-in care to control the smoothness (look for a special mark on the products!). Dry your hair with a towel and spread the jelly over it, paying special attention to the roots. Blow dry your hair with a diffuser, using a diffused air stream, create a small volume around your face with your hands. Finish styling with strong hold varnish.
Wash your hair with a volumizing shampoo for a "push-up" effect from the roots. Dry your hair with a brush and secure each curl with a special hair clip. Let them cool, loosen up and treat each strand with a matting spray. Then comb your hair with a massage comb, preserving the large curls.
For short hair

Spray on damp hair (from roots to ends) with Thermo Modeling Setting Spray for volume and hand dry for a soft and natural texture. Part a side part and braid a loose bangs braid (along the hairline), fixing the strands with varnish.
Spray texturizing lotion onto damp hair (full length). Dry them with a hairdryer, lifting them at the roots (with your hands or with a large-diameter comb). Divide the hair into small strands and twist it around the tongs in any order. Finally, fluff up your hair with your hands for a messy styling.
This styling option is performed when the hair is dry. Smooth the "whiskey" with a special stick for smoothness and shine, combing your hair away from the face. Also, using the stick, select the ends of the strands on the parietal zone and throw them forward.
Spread the special jelly with a comb through damp hair to create a "wet" look. Then use a fine-toothed comb to style your facial hair in a "cold wave" and let it dry in this position. Ready!
