Anyone know some quick hairdos that take less than 10 minutes to do. Usually I'm in a rush to go to school and I want something other than a ponytail or leaving it down. In case this helps, my hair is thin, straight, and a little bit below shoulder-length...it's kind of like armpit-length. Any ideas would be appreciated.  Smiley

Well, it's not all the different from a ponytail, but I always think putting it up in a clip looks nice.  You can either spike the ends out of the top of the clip, or do it when your hair is wet and smooth them down so it's kind of a waterfall.  I recommend an octopus clip, about $2.

I don't really understand that. Do you have any picture examples? Or can anyone explain better if they get it? I'm interested because I have similar hair. Thanks.

Sorry, that was rather confusing.  Fortunately, I did my hair like that today.  Unfortunately, all I have is my camera phone.

it looks cuter from the back, and when I'm more inclinded to make myself pretty.  I just gathered my hair in a low ponytail, then twisted it up and clipped.  My hair was still damp, so I smoothed it over the clip so it hangs down nicely.  To spike it, I do the same thing, but twist my hair around twice (in a bun-like way) making sure the ends are at the top.  Clip with a larger clip, and put a bit of wax or gel at the ends.

 I just gathered my hair in a low ponytail, then twisted it up and clipped. 

That's one of my favorite things to do with my hair when it's long enough. It's simple and it has the added effect of looking classy when you have the right clip.  Smiley

Anyway, here's some picks of my hair. It's normally an afro, but sometimes I get it straightened. Currently it's in micro braids. They take forever to get done, but they're very low maintenance.
Here's the natural state. I love it like this cause it's easy and very me.

And this is what it looks like after I have someone take a pressing comb and curling iron to it. God forbid it gets wet when it's like this. When that happens, back to the fro I go! lol.

And this is what it looks like now. It took 13 hours. and that's not including meals and the 4hour nap we took during. Smiley anyway. It takes a long time, but it's worth it because I can leave it like this for a minimum of 2 months. I can also wash it like I normally would.

when your dreadies get a little older a really fun thing is to add snaps to your hair so that instead of getting a elastic you can just snap your deadies together to hold them back... best trick ever...

love them by the way. they are going to look fabulous!
