With the right tricks up your sleeve, every day can be a good hair day. You don't even have to spend an hour fussing over your strands to do it—you'll be surprised at the difference a few quick fixes can do. So if you have short to mid-length locks, here are some tried-and-tested tips:
1. Rhian Ramos
A messy side part can frame your face's side profile or give you a little coverage when you're feeling puffy. It takes like five seconds to do, too, so why not?
2. Heart Evangelista
Creating a clean part (see which one suits your face shape here) can take your hair from air-dried to extra polished in under a minute.
3. Liz Uy
Cutting naturally straight hair into a bob is tricky, as you'd most likely be plagued by too-flat strands. So if you have a few minutes to spare, give your roots and ends a spritz of texturizing spray before heading out.
4. Isabelle Daza
Always curl the front sections of your hair away from your face to achieve flattering loose waves that also serve as a makeup-free contour.
5. Toni Gonzaga
Hit two birds with one blow dry sesh by using a round brush that'll add volume to your strands and smooth out the frizz.
6. Sue Ramirez
Adding a hat over unstyled locks easily hide your hair's secrets for the day—be it oily strands, a flaky scalp, or too much frizz.
7. Solenn Heussaff
If you don't have an hour to spare but need that extra oomph, grab your curling iron and quickly run it over sections of your hair to give it a chic bend. Since your hair is short, it'll take you 30 minutes max. Watch how a pro does it here.
