Beauty Pick Me Up - Sleek And Easy Up-Do's

When it comes to looking polished and put together, the finishing touches and accessories are just as important as the outfit itself. One of the most important finishing touches to any ensemble is the hair style. While it would be wonderful to be able to get a pricey blow-out every week, or have the time to perfect an elaborate hairstyle every morning, it's just not practical. So we've decided on three easy-to-do up-dos that are versatile and will save you time in the morning, but have you stepping out looking perfectly coiffed!

Side Swept Ponytail - An easy 'do that's flattering on all face shapes! Simply rub a few drops of sleeking serum into slightly damp hair, sweep hair to one side and gather loosely at the nape of the neck. Secure with an elastic band and a few pins in the back to keep hair in place (leave the front tousled for an effortless appeal). This look also words well as a loose braid!

Twisted Bun - This style is classy and clean! Add a pumps of a pliable hair mold to damp hair and grasp hair into a 'ponytail' at the nape of the neck. Gently twist hair until it naturally starts to turn in a circle. Loop hair around itself tightly and secure with an elastic band (two if you have longer hair!). Hide the ends by tucking them under and use a few bobby pins to secure. This look is also fun to adorn with silk flowers or a shiny headband!

Sleek High-Ponytail - A classic coif that gives sass to any ensemble. Simple use a few drops of sleeking serum and brush hair so that it is pulled back with no part. Gather hair tightly to at least the center of the head if not higher and secure with an elastic band, being sure that the front and back are smooth. Grab a section of hair (about to finger widths) and wrap it around the elastic to hide it, tucking and pinning the ends underneath to hide it. Add a few more drops of sleeking serum to smooth out flyaways!
