For a fast, do-it-yourself style, you will need a curling iron, texturizing spray, an elastic band, and a few bobby pins. Begin by creating some loose curls and spray with your favorite texture spray. Divide you hair from ear to ear, creating a front and back section. Tie the back section with an elastic band, then twist it into a messy bun and secure with bobby pins. With the remaining front section, divide it in two (or more) sections, loosely twisting each section away from your face and towards the bun, and secure it with bobby pins. Voila! You're done and ready to party!
