{Simplicity Saturday} 3 Fabulous Hair Trends That Save You Time & Money

I’m not sure when I started doing this, but the word “simplicity” has become my weekend mantra. It’s something about saying, Simplicity Saturday or Simplicity Sunday, that helps me welcome the weekend and feel relaxed and empowered to do ANYTHING…even if that means actively doing nothing. I have been so busy lately, that I have not made time for what I consider “basic upkeep” (i.e. getting my hair done).  Whenever I find little pockets of time it is too late to make a hair appointment.  So what is a girl to do? Try new hairstyles at home, that’s what!  Below are a few of my favorite protective styles that look fabulous on all hair types, that saver time, and most importantly… simple!

Check them out!

{Beauty Cents} HairspirationThat Saves Your Strands & Money

I have recently been introduced to the curling wand and while I love the results, I’m not sure my hair is loving the amount of heat that it requires to keep up the look. I don’t see a problem using it now and then, but when I first got the wand, I was using it up to three times a week….and we all know that overexposure to heat based styling tools can lead to brittle hair and split ends.  I’m trying to maintain healthy hair, especially in between salon visits, with hair styles that will save my strands, money, and time. I have found myself lacking hairspiration and it shows. Lately, I have rocked straight hair, a bun, or wash and go, which reveals my natural curls, but I’m looking forward to switching it up a bit.
