Back-To-School Hairstyles

A new school year often means a new hairstyle—one that will boost your confidence and make a great first impression! Of course time is never on your side on school days—that alarm goes off way too early! So whether your hair is long or short, here are quick, easy hairstyle ideas from Matrix to get you to class on time…and on trend!

Cute Crinkles: Hippie hair was all the rage at summer festivals like Coachella, and this fall the look has a new crinkle, with cool crimped textures. To save time in the a.m., work a bit of Matrix Design Pulse Loosely Defined through damp hair at night, divide all of your hair into braids, and then get your beauty sleep. Wake up, undo the braids, part your hair in the center and pop on a leather headband. Good to go!

Pouf’d Pony: Your ponytail is your hair BFF—it’s there for you any time you need a quick fix. This season, transform your pony from practical to pretty special with a bit of rock and roll oomph by teasing the top and roughing up the tail texture. Use Design Pulse Get Action Spray Wax for support and add a thin black velvet headband for ultimate indie-chic.

Pixie Perfect: You took the plunge and cropped your hair into a cute little pixie this summer—now what? Work it by picking the products that will keep your crop looking piece-y, messy and fierce! Matrix Artistic Director Ammon Carver recommends combining Design Pulse Messy Couture Molding Paste to create texture along with Design Pulse Mix in Shine Brilliant Serum for lustrous shine. Just combine them in your hands and rake through your hair with your fingers.
