Ear- to Chin-Length Hair: If You Have 5 Minutes
Create the illusion of an updo simply by adding a hair accessory.
Distribute mousse through damp hair with your hands.
Flip your head over and quickly blast it with a dryer; tousle with your fingers.
Push a thin headband 1 to 2 inches back into the hair. (Or cover your hairline with a thicker band to camouflage oily roots.) Tease hair behind the band to prevent the band from slipping.
Apply styling cream to ends for shine.
